Natural Scrub Base
Our new natural scrub base is a versatile medium for anhydrous scrub formulations. This is a specially designed cocktail of lipid ingredients to provide lubricious feel and skin conditioning, and reinforce the lipid layers on skin, perfect for aging or very dry skin. Our natural scrub base offers a great way to formulate a quick scrub by adding your favorite scent oils and/or scrubbing agent (this could be our jojoba beads, coffee, a course salt, etc.). This base is ready to go, no need for any additional oils, butters, or thickeners.
THIS IS A BASE. We do not sell this as a pre-made scrub. Photos of coffee and pink salt scrubs are as examples. You can find the formulations for these scrubs below.
Scent: Sugary (we think it smells like cookie dough without any fragrance added!)

This scrub used to smell great, without any aroma added. It did smell like sugar cookie dough, as they said in the description. I've been buying it for years. Starting this fall, I opened a new bucket and it smelled bad. A bit rancid? Didn't seem like there was a change in ingredients. I emailed the company, they were looking into in November I think, still haven't heard back. It stinks. That's all there is to it. I couldn't get the smell covered up with vanilla essential oil, and ruined a huge batch. Peppermint seemed to cover it up better, but why it smells so bad now it's beyond me. Thinking I just got a bad batch, I reordered. Same thing. Smells awful.
This is a great base and is really smooth and moisturizing on the skin. But I wish it didn't already have a such a sweet scent because it alters the scent of whatever fragrance you add to it. I wish it came in an unscented version then it would be PERFECT!
