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 :)

How to: Prevent Dry Skin (Exfoliate) During The Winter:
How to: Prevent Dry Skin (Exfoliate) During The Winter:

January 17, 2020

Winter is a tough time for our skin. If you live in a cold climate, it can have an even larger impact on the feel, look, elasticity, and health. Exposed areas of skin can become dried out, flake, crack, turn red from inflammation and even cause break-outs.

What can be done to prevent it?

Exfoliation - Exfoliation is the process of removing these dead skin cells from pores, while nourishing the skin to repair moisture levels and prevent redness.

Moisturize (with a heavier cream) - Just as important as removing excess skin cells and bacteria from pores, is how we nourish our skin to bring it back to a healthy balance. Because skin is so deprived of moisture during the cold months, it’s important to switch to a heavier moisturizer with a nourishing base, like organic shea.
