Key Active Ingredients
ULTRA FINE BAMBOO POWDER
ORGANIC PAPAYA EXTRACT
Sometimes, dead skin cells don’t shed completely. This can result in dry, flaky patches, clogged pores and dull skin.
My Organic Face Scrub will solve these problems and gently buff away dead skin cells with ultra-fine Bamboo Powder (no Microbeads), Kaolin Clay and enzyme based peeling Papaya Extract, leaving your skin looking brighter and softer.
It prepares the skin for the treatment that follows and Foundations will smooth over your skin cleanly.
Exfoliating with this scrub also helps reduce skin discolouration, stimulates collagen production and is key to glowing, vibrant, plump looking skin.
Combined with high levels of *Organic oils like Marula, Olive Squalane and Calendula which contain good levels of essential fatty acids and vitamins, this Face Scrub provides an elegant feel and moisturises your skin beautifully.
The luxury cream based formulation rinses off easy leaving the skin feeling clean and with a fresh glow.

THE FRAGRANCED VERSION INCLUDES
hints of Geranium, Frankincense, Lavender and Palmarosa to delight your senses.
Cleanse face prior to exfoliating.
Apply a few dots to dry skin (cheeks, chin and forehead - a little goes a long way!) with clean dry hands. Then splash with water and massage gently in circular motion. Rinse thoroughly with warm water to wash away dead skin cells and sebum build-up. Wipe face with a wash cloth after rinsing, to clean away the last little scrub remainders, leaving the skin feeling refreshed and smooth. Follow with a toner and moisturiser for best results.
Use once or twice a week, morning or night, to maintain a healthy and radiant complexion.
To avoid introducing water or contaminating your beauty product, I suggest to use a dedicated spatula to scoop out the scrub.
*Do not use on broken or sensitive skin (rash, eczema, rosacea)

- ORGANIC PAPAYA EXTRACT
The many benefits of papaya can be attributed to the high content of vitamins A, B, and C and it is naturally rich in Alpha-Hydroxyl Acids (AHAs). Its proteolytic enzymes, such as papain and chymopapain also have antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties.
The papain found in papaya soothes skin irritations and its anti-inflammatory properties make it an ideal ingredient for acne and blemish-prone skin. Its natural and effective exfoliating properties brighten the skin by removing dead skin cells and flaky patches on the top layer of your skin.
- ORGANIC MARULA OIL
Cold pressed from the Marula tree seeds native to Southern Africa and Madagascar, and containing notably high amounts of Vitamin C. Traditionally it has been used in African medicinal and beauty treatments for centuries, as it is known to protect skin from harsh and dry elements, and aids in healing. It is lightweight and rich in oleic Omega 9 and linoleic Omega 6 fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining fresh, younger looking skin by deeply nourishing, hydrating and improving the overall health of the skin. Due to its high content of antioxidants, such as Vitamin E and Tocotrienol, Marula Oil is wonderful when it comes to protecting the skin from common problems such as free radicals, photo-ageing and general weather damage.
- ORGANIC OLIVE SQUALANE
is an excellent ingredient to prevent moisture loss and works very much like the skin’s own oil (sebum), therefore safe for all skin types and a great choice for its regenerative effect. Light and easily absorbed, it leaves the skin silky and smooth. Squalane is also a detoxifier. Regular use can also boost collagen production, resulting in firmer skin.
Squalane’s sebum-like ability helps lubricate skin so it feels comfortable but, unlike too much sebum, its lightweight nature keeps it from feeling greasy. It is recognised by other lipids present in skin such as ceramides and cholesterol, where it works to visibly repair the skin’s vital barrier, a process that can help skin look younger and become less reactive.
- ORGANIC CALENDULA OIL
Herbalists value Calendula as a healer and it has been widely used as a remedy since ancient times. It is an infusion of Marigold flowers and has been applied topically in popular medicine for slow healing wounds, bed sores, bruises, cuts, scratches, inflammations, eczema, ulcers and burns. Calendula is also recognised as an effective astringent and therefore has a tightening effect on the skin.
Calendula petal contains five compounds — Oleanic Acid, Lupeol, Quercetin, α Amyrin and β Amyrin. These efficacious compounds have been studied and are known to provide antioxidant protection, soothe skin and reduce discomfort.
Calendula oil helps improve the overall appearance of your skin. A study found that skin care products containing Calendula promote skin hydration and firmness.
- WHITE KAOLIN CLAY
benefits all skin types as it is a mild, pH neutral, yet very effective cleanser that contains a number of minerals including calcium, magnesium, silica and zinc. Kaolin Clay gently cleans away dull dead skin cells, traces of dirt, absorbs impurities from your pores, and leaves your skin feeling wonderfully soft!
