Activated Charcoal Scrub Unlike sugar scrubs made with only oils and sugar, emulsified sugar scrubs become a creamy exfoliating lotion upon contact with water, leaving no oily residue, but only soft, supple skin behind. Emulsified sugar scrubs include an emulsifier as one of their ingredients when the oils and waxes of the product come in contact with water, they basically form an emulsion, or a lotion, on your skin while you are exfoliating away. In the end, emulsified sugar scrubs are like exfoliants and lotions in one product. You're essentially making an exfoliating creamy cleanser right on your skin as you scrub away. Why is it black? Activated Charcoal is known for its natural ability to draw out oils and impurities from the skin. Scented with all natural, pure essential oils like eucalyptus, peppermint, spearmint, rosemary, lavender & tea tree. Ingredients: Sugar, Coconut Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Emulsifying Wax, Jojoba Oil, Essential Oil Blend, Arrowroot Powder, Glycerine, Beeswax, Vitamin E Oil, Activated Charcoal, Optiphen. Directions: To use your sugar scrub, scoop out a small amount in your hands and begin to rub over your wet arms and legs (or any areas you want to exfoliate and hydrate) in a circular motion. As the mixture comes into contact with the water, a lotion will be formed, and the sugar will begin to dissolve, making the product smoother and less abrasive. Rinse any remaining sugar crystals off, and pat your skin dry. Your skin should now feel smooth and hydrated. Bathtub may be slippery, please use caution.
