Homemade Sugar Scrubs are Best

Simply Natural Homemade Sugar Scrubs

We all know that organic, natural, unprocessed food is best for our bodies, so why would we treat our skin any differently? Skin is essentially your first line of defence against outside forces, but many people don’t realise that any substance put directly onto it is quickly absorbed into the body. Therefore, when you smother yourself with a shop-bought body scrub, full of artificial ingredients to produce a rainbow of colours, unnatural flavours and chemical preservatives, you aren’t just putting it onto your skin, but straight into your system.

Chemical scandals The recent media scandal about parabens has linked the popular preservative to breast cancer – while nothing is conclusive it has forced skincare giants to review this and other additives. They are now beginning to label their products as “free from” in terms of the known nasties, i.e. paraben-free, phthalate-free or free of synthetic fragrance, but it makes you wonder what else is in there that we don’t know about because, quite frankly, you’d be none the wiser by simply looking at the list of ingredients.

Beware of green-washing A 2011 survey showed that sales of personal care products labelled “natural” rose 15% worldwide. Savvy consumers are getting wise to the resulting “green-washing” by skincare manufacturers, and know that the surest way guarantee a product is 100% full of natural goodness is to simply make it yourself. Not only can you then choose the exact combination of ingredients to suit your skin, but you will also save a small fortune; it really is a win-win solution.

More than just a trend The move away from toxic chemicals and towards natural, organic products which are pure, clean and safe for the skin is based on a variety of arguments. As well as concern for their own well-being, the general public are becoming conscious about the environment and demanding sustainable products, both in terms of raw materials and production. Additionally, the health benefits of natural elements such as aloe vera and calendula are better known and such readily-available components are lowering the cost of wholesome products.

Homemade is best Reduced cost natural produce can still be beaten however by homemade sugar scrubs and during a recessionary climate people tend to “make do and mend”. Of course sugar is cheap to buy, but you’d be wise to shop around for the best carrier oil deals in wholesalers or ethnic food stores. You will have an initial outlay on some essential oils, but they keep for a long time and are only used sparingly so will last for a while. If you want a less expensive aroma without the mood or skin benefits, you could always flavour your scrubs with herbs and spices such as cloves or nutmeg from the kitchen cupboard. You don’t need to compromise on storage either if you are on a budget; simply scour charity shops for cheap pots, just remember it has to be airtight.
