Salts & Sugars
For centuries, people have bathed in the mineral-rich seas of the world to help promote good health and beautiful skin. Ancient records show that people traveled many miles to bathe in salt waters such as the Dead Sea, the Black Sea, the Red Sea, the Blue Lagoon and the famous mineral springs around the world. The mineral-rich, salty waters have been know to help soothe and alleviate dry and problem skin. Salt water bathing is stimulating, hydrates the skin, increases moisture retention, helps remove impurities, and helps soothe dry, scaling, irritated skin. Important minerals such as magnesium, potassium, bromide, and calcium are highly beneficial. Salts are well suited for making bath soaks, bath bombs, bath fizzies, scrubs and foot soaks. Salts are also ideal for hand, foot and body scrub applications intended for thorough exfoliation, scrubbing and cleansing.
Naturally harvested sea salts are hand cleaned when packaged. However, they may contain small particles of seaweed, sand, shell or other beach particles. Large mineral deposits appear as small stones or pebbles. These particles are not harmful, but can be removed, if desired.
Sweeten up your body scrubs with these luscious, natural sugars. They provide gentle to medium exfoliation, look decadent and are suitable for use in both facial and body scrub formulations. Experiment by substituting one of our natural sugars for the salt in your favorite salt scrub recipe.
Because our sugars retain their natural molasses content, they do impart a slightly sweet, molasses aroma to your recipe. When choosing essential or fragrance oils to fragrance your sugar-based formulation, we suggest choosing oils with aromas that will blend well. Examples of essential oils that tend to blend well with our sugars are sandalwood, patchouli, orange, vanilla or peppermint. You may also explore our selection of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, fruit, nut and spice fragrance oils for fragrances that blend well with our sugars.
"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
