Creamy Chai Sugar Scrub


Scrubs are often overlooked and not just by those of us who make body care products at home. They are often overlooked by consumers as well. Making sure that your skin is exfoliated on a regular basis not only helps make your skin smoother, but it also makes it softer. If you apply lotion after exfoliating, your skin will stay softer and smoother longer with less applications of lotion needed.

 

Today I wanted to make a scrub that would exfoliate, wash off easily but leave enough oil on the skin so that it is conditioning. Think of a product that makes it easier to pamper your skin. Isn’t that great? Let’s go make a body scrub!

I used sugar as my exfoliant for this scrub. You can use many things like salt, luffa, pumice, ground oatmeal, etc. Sugar is readily available and easy to find. It is also an ingredient that is in most households to begin with.

I used Sunflower Oil as my oil of choice for this scrub. It is an oil that has a long shelf life. It is also a a more light-weight oil. So even when using it, users won’t be turned off by the texture of the scrub. It will also leave a light weight, conditioning feel to the skin.

I used Polysorbate 80 in this scrub to make the clean up easy. Do you remember the disaster I had with a tester of mine who struggled getting the scrub off! If you want a chuckle, it is a good post to go back and read. I have since learned easy removal of a scrub is a must!

Lastly, I chose Liquapar as my preservative. This preservative is designed for scrubs and other products that can and will have water introduced to them. Remember, preservatives are necessary because they keep the microbes at bay!
