Organic Nation’s Black Rice Scrub is one of my favourite products from the line. I’ve tried my fair share of exfoliants and this one leaves my skin looking like I just had a luxurious hour long facial. Known for centuries as “forbidden rice”, the crushed black rice is grainy enough to really give a powerful exfoliation, melting away dead skin cells to reveal a smooth surface and a healthy glow but gentle enough not to damage the surface of the skin. The Black Rice Scrub is not only beneficial to your skin but to the environment as well. By replacing petrochemical based micro beads with a natural ingredient, we’re doing our part to protect waterways and wildlife.
Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice
Aloe is known for its healing properties and provides essential nourishment and moisture retention.
Activated Bamboo Charcoal Powder
Charcoal has the ability to absorb 1000 times its own weight. It has been used medicinally for centuries to draw out impurities by binding toxins to its surface for a deep purification of the skin.
Ginkgo and Ginseng
An impressive antioxidant, ginseng contains many anti-ageing phytonutrients that help brighten the skin. Ginkgo has the ability to protect skin from environmental pollutants, aiding in slowing the ageing process as well as helping clear clogged pores of build-up and debris.
Lavender, Vetiver and Jasmine Oils
There’s more to these essential oils besides their incredible and soothing scents. Jasmine doubles as a natural tonic, lavender soothes the skin with antibacterial and cleansing properties and vetiver aids in clearing acne, promoting skin regeneration and healing wounds.
This scrub is also super versatile. I like to mix mine with the Citrus Foaming Cleanser for a double-benefits facewash or with the Detoxifying Clay Whip for that deep penetrating cleanse.
