I just finished the second round of sample bags for donation to Fresh Start Women’s Foundation through AZ Spa Girl’s Summer Spaaah Series (three left to go!).  This is what my box full of 200 green organza bags filled with our Cocoa/Lime Hemp Lip Balms and sample size Tangerine Creamsicle Body Butters looked like before we shipped it out.  Temperatures reached 110 degrees yesterday (the day they were scheduled to arrive in Scottsdale), so we made a trip to Lowe’s over the weekend and bought some mylar bubble wrap to protect the lip balms and body butters from the heat during shipment.  They were a lot of work to make — I hope they made it there o.k.!

This week’s AZ Spa Girls’ event is on Friday night, July 2nd at Dolce Salon & Spa at the Borgata, Scottsdale.

In the past sugar was known as “white gold,” because it was a rare and expensive commodity. Sugar is a popular ingredient in skin care products today because it:

• acts as a natural exfoliator
• does not clog pores
• helps eliminate blemishes
• restores balance to skin’s oils

Sugar contains glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid that is crucial for maintaining healthy skin.  The natural glycolic acid in sugar not only helps condition and moisturize skin, but protect it from toxins.

To make our Whipped Sugar Scrubs, we use pure cane sugar (raw sugar) that is made from clarified cane juice boiled down to a crystalline solid. We do not use the less expensive white sugar, because bone char is used to make it white in color and it is not vegan.

When you regularly exfoliate your skin with a sugar scrub, it becomes healthier in appearance and function.  After dead skin has been exfoliated, your body’s largest organ works more efficiently to expel toxins and take in nourishment.  Skin becomes more uniform in appearance, is softer to touch, and has a radiant glow.  Sugar scrubs are also gentler, less dehydrating than salt scrubs and be used by all skin types.
