The Importance of Using a Body Scrub
A great body scrub is the skincare secret of Brazilian supermodels for a reason! Body scrubs work to gently remove dead skin cells from the top of the skin’s surface, which smooths and softens the skin while promoting skin cell turnover. This skin cell turnover is the secret behind the glowing youthful bodies and legs often seen on the beach. Consistent use of a body scrub will prevent ingrown hairs and razor bumps from congestion under the skin, which will keep your legs razor bump-free and ready for any outfit!

Popular body scrubs include: Herbivore’s Amethyst Body Polish, The Seaweed Bath Co Exfoliating Detox Scrub, and on the more affordable end, Neutrogena’s Body Clear Body Scrub. While these scrubs do the job, they lack our powerful secret: the Amazon and Pitaya, a beauty superpower. We’ve taken the market for body scrubs to a new level with our powerful formula and gentle ingredients. Furthermore, the scent and texture of this scrub are to die for, and you will feel like you’re at the spa in no time.
Ingredient Spotlight: Pitaya (Hylocereus Undatus Fruit Extract)
Pitaya, or Dragon fruit, hails from the Amazon in Brazil and we have the best there is! The fruit is famous for its beautiful pink color and tropical skin, but the superfood has heaps of benefits for your skin as well. Pitaya was originally used to treat sunburns, as people found it to be very soothing after catching too much sun at the beach. It contains Vitamin B, which is what helps soothe the skin and reduces itchiness after a sunburn. The antimicrobial properties also helped make sure that the burnt area does not become infected. However, once people realized how well Pitaya was working for burns, it became very popular, and it was discovered that it has several other powerful properties when it’s applied topically on the skin. In addition to its healing powers, it makes the skin glow, is a natural moisturizer, reduces acne, and fights premature aging and free radical damage. The water-rich fruit has polyphenolic compounds as well as Vitamin C to pack a powerful punch. The skin of the fruit itself has antimicrobial properties, so it helps fight acne and inflammation through controlling sebum production. These antioxidants in pitaya help slow down the aging process by fighting free radicals in the body. Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons and are found from the foods we eat, alcohol, pesticides, and unavoidable air pollutants that we come into contact with every day.
Free radical damage is also caused by too much time in the sun. These free radicals are harmful to the skin, leading to the “radical theory of aging”, which is how atoms are taken from the molecules in the skin, and this damages our skin cells, leading to accelerated aging. Free radicals break down the skin’s collagen, leading to wrinkles and skin appearing loose or saggy because the skin is weak. To combat the radical theory of aging, experts cite antioxidants as capable of fighting damaging free radicals off! Cue pitaya! The fruit is able to fight these free radicals due to its natural properties, and to make the scrub even more effective, we have added Vitamin C, another free radical, anti-aging fighter!
Ingredient Spotlight: Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Vitamin C is a proven friend of glowing, luminous skin! The concentrated antioxidant promotes bright skin by treating dark spots and acting as a natural exfoliant. As mentioned, it also works to fight free radical damage that leads to dark spots and loose, saggy skin from weakened skin cells and loss of collagen. Vitamin C rejuvenates skin because it is a main ingredient of collagen, which protects the skin’s luminous youthful glow! Collagen metabolism is an essential function of glowing skin. It also firms the skin by addressing signs of aging.
Ingredient Spotlight: Jojoba Esters
Jojoba beads are here to do the job for you by gently exfoliating dead skin cells, revealing the more youthful and glowing skin underneath! Jojoba esters are biodegradable and the individual beads have smooth edges, which means you don’t have to worry about creating small tears on the surface of the skin as you’re using the scrub. They’re gentle yet effective and come from the natural jojoba oil, making them a more eco-friendly choice than traditional scrubs which use microbeads, since microbeads are in many beauty products on the market and are made of plastic and cause plastic particle water pollution.
Ingredient Spotlight: Glycerin
Glycerin is our last (but certainly not least), powerful player! It acts as a humectant to bring the skin the hydration that’s essential for the smooth and luminous glow we crave. It is a common ingredient in skin care products because it improves the skin’s moisture content, which is great! Hydrated skin brings the “supermodel” glow, since moisturization prevents tearing of the skin and plumps lines on the face.
