Take It With A Grain Of...Sugar?
Sugar is a natural exfoliant. With its grainy texture, it’ s the perfect ingredient to heighten the scrubbing action that removes dead skin cells, which can clog pores and make your complexion look dull.
Black sugar would be considered a physical type of exfoliation. Also known as manual or mechanical exfoliation, it relies on a rubbing action (aka friction) and physical contact with a substrate to loosen and remove dead skin cells. On the other hand (pun intended), there are chemical exfoliants that include such ingredients as acids, retinol, and enzymes, which can have different, more targeted effects on skin. If you prefer a physical exfoliator, we recommend the Black Sugar Mask Wash Off and if you prefer a chemical exfoliator, try the Black Sugar Perfect Splash Mask.
If you have a sensitive skin type, you should always be careful to try exfoliants on a small patch of skin to test for any skin irritations or reactions before using on your entire face or body.
Sugar is also a natural humectant, which means that it draws moisture from the environment into the skin. So when you use our Black Sugar Mask Wash Off, you’re hydrating your skin and helping it to retain moisture, two effective ways to treat signs of aging. You’ll also be helping to save the environment! The primary exfoliating agent in many popular beauty brands involve microbeads, tiny plastic particles which act as the friction substrate. As of 2015, these microbeads, which have been popping up in concerning numbers in water sources, such as the Great Lakes, have been banned.
