What the heck is a body scrub and why do I need it?

June 27, 2013

An exfoliant is a personal care product that is made up of irregular textures used to remove dead cells (stratum corneum) from the surface of the skin. Dead cells prevent moisturizers from penetrating and soothing dry skin. Dirt and dead cells also clog pours causing flare ups of skin irritations such as acne. The benefits of exfoliating are really seen while shaving. By removing dirt and   dry cells you expose the hair follicle resulting in a better shave.

 
Salt N Sea Scrub

 You should only exfoliate a couple a times of week but because your feet are harder to exfoliate than your body, you can use a scrub on them 3 to 4 times a week or more depending on your results.

 

Our Salt N Sea Body scrub is all natural and great for the whole body. Containing Nova Scotia Sea Kelp and Seabuckthorn this treat cleanses you of dead cells but leaves amazing moisturizing oils and antioxidants behind. Follow up with our Nova Scotia Lotion to reduce signs of aging and damage from the environment.

I just bought the Salt N’ Sea Scrub Body Scrub at a Zehrs store in the Natural Valu Dept. and used it on my face. My face was sooooo soft after.

I love the Salt N Sea Scrub which I use on my face weekly. It has a nice light creamy texture with just a hint of fragrance from the essential oils that leaves my skin soft, smooth and moisturizing. And I like the fact that it is 100% natural and I was able to purchase this at the local grocery store in the health section. Great product and I will definitely keep buying this for the long run. ;-)

I just found your wonderful products in the health food section at Loblaws and being a maritimer from Nova Scotia, I just had to try your stuff out!! Well I’m totally hooked…absolutely love the salt scrub, the soaps and the lotion(my big tough hubby will even use your lotion cause he says it doesn’t burn his sore chapped skin). Thanks for coming up with a line that appeals to all things maritime and I look forward to any other new products that you might come up with like say: natural laundry soap, face creams, hair care products etc. Warmest Regards, Tess, a very satisfied customer :)

You arrive home, and the first thing you want to do is grab a shower and a rugged soap to clean up - but many people don’t realize that cleansing with cheap, harsh, skin care products can actually create further damage to your biggest organ – your skin.

Sure, you want to cleanse off the dirt, bacteria, and pollutants your skin comes into contact with - but you don't want to replace that dirt with chemicals that can be absorbed into the body.

Summer on the eastern seaboard is certainly beautiful, however, it can also be unforgivingly humid. 

A little humidity can be a good thing for your skin, but when the water in the air tops 50 percent or more, it can leave your complexion shiny, oily, and lead to breakouts (yikes).

The good news... There's simple steps you can take to combat high humidity, keeping your skin clean and fresh
