“Peaches & Cream” Exfoliating Scrub Mask
Our natural exfoliating scrub mask really takes the cake! It’s more than just a scrub. Ground peach kernels combined with a rich cream base gently exfoliate and deeply nourish your skin, leaving it feeling smooth, fresh and peachy!
The majority of exfoliating (scrub) products contain plastic micro beads. These are generally made from polypropylene or polyethylene. These micro plastics are usually too small to be filtered out of waste water and are now being found in large waterways around the world, despite this problem having been known about for years. See this extract from The Green People Blog
Personal hygiene products are not the main cause of these pollutants, but they certainly contribute. We at New Leaf have never used plastic abrasives in our scrub mask. Like all of our ingredients, our gentle exfoliator – ground peach kernels – are 100% biodegradable. When massaged into the skin, ground peach kernels stimulate the circulation and help to remove dead skin cells.
The apricot kernel oil and jojoba content make this preparation particularly nourishing. Jojoba moisturises and acts as an emollient, improving the skin’s elasticity and suppleness. Apricot kernel oil is naturally high in vitamin E. It contains vitamin A and omegas-9 & -6 (essential fatty acids). As well as nourishing, it softens and revitalises the skin. We recommend using the “Peaches & Cream” Scrub Mask once a week, following up with “Maskapone Magic“ and then moisturising with “Single Cream”, “Double Cream“ or “SpotTEA“
