Bath Scrubs: Salt vs Sugar Scrubs

Have you been wondering, "What exactly is a bath scrub?" or "When would I want to use a sugar scrub versus a salt scrub?" This bath scrub tutorial will teach you what you need to know in order to make an informed decision regarding your choice of exfoliating solution. We'll even teach you to make your own homemade bath scrub using the same ingredients we use to make ours!


What is a scrub? Simple exfoliation skin care solutions explained

A body scrub, also known as a bath scrub or body polish, is a solution of skin care product ingredients such as rice bran oil, dead sea salt, shea butter, brown sugar, and/or jojoba oil blended together for the purpose of exfoliation. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells that are dulling your skin’s appearance, and uncover new, shiny skin cells to give your skin a natural, radiant glow.

Body scrubs are an ideal solution for how to make skin glow for that perfectly toned body!


Salt Scrub vs Sugar Scrub – Discover the difference in skin care benefits

There are two main types of body scrubs: salt scrubs and sugar scrubs.You may ask, "What's the difference?"

salt scrub

Preferred Salt Scrubs

  • Made with Dead Sea Salt, which, unlike other salts, is very moisturizing to skin due to its high mineral content, and its ability to deep-cleanse your pores so your skin can soak up moisture from your surroundings.
  • Ideal for normal, oily, combination, or dry/dehydrated skin
  • Provides excellent exfoliation for even the most extreme dry scaly skin
  • Beneficial and effective for eczema and/or psoriasis, deep cleansing and moisturizing, and packed full of the essential minerals your skin so desperately requires
  • Also great to use as foot scrubs to exfoliate the tough callouses on your feet

sugar scrubSugar Scrubs

  • Made with brown sugar for a gentler, more delicate feel while exfoliating
  • Ideal for facial exfoliation and/or for use on sensitive skin
  • Can be made with jojoba oil or sunflower oil for superior moisturizing and to help clear acne so you can be blemish-free
  • Can include coffee grounds to deliver caffeine and antioxidants to your skin to fight signs of aging

Sugar Scrubs: An exfoliation alternative for sensitive skin revealed!

If you have sensitive skin or you want to exfoliate a sensitive area such as your face, you may be hesitant to use something as abrasive as a Dead Sea Salt Scrub on your body. But that doesn't mean you should just let dead skin cells linger on your skin's outer layer until they clog up your pores and cause your skin to look dull. Try using either of these brown-sugar-based bath scrub instead.

  • Our Coffee Cococa Brown Sugar Face & Body Scrub is made with fresh coffee grounds, brown sugar, and the pattented anti-aging Coffeeberry to make even the most sensitive skin feel smooth and silky, while simultaneously infusing your skin's deeper layers with powerful anti-aging nutrients. Plus it will leave your skin scented in the alluring aroma of cocoa!
  • Our Ginger Lily Brown Sugar Body Scrub is made with brown sugar and organic shea butter to moisturize your skin and help lighten age spots as the brown sugar exfoliates your skin and helps dislodge blackheads and other pollutants that are clogging your pores and dulling your skin's natural shine. Plus, it will leave your skin scented in warm ginger and with the feel of soft lilies.

Whether you choose a Dead Sea Salt body scrub or brown sugar body scrub, we suggest you follow up by showering with our Dead Sea Salt Soap. Our Dead Sea salt soap will help you protect your newly exfoliated skin and keep it looking like you just spent a day at the spa. It is designed to moisturize, not strip oils from your skin like mass-manufactured commercial soap.  It's actually designed as a 80% moisturizing bar- leaving your freshly showered skin silky soft.
