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.

cruelty free and vegan

When we created our product line in 2007, we made a conscious decision to not use any animal-derived ingredients in our formulas.  We wanted our products to be effective, luxurious, and cruelty-free.  All of our products are 100% Vegan-friendly and contain no animal ingredients or animal-derived ingredients.

Being animal-free means NEVER using:

  • beeswax (often found in lip balms and mascaras)
  • milk (found in soaps)
  • collagen (skin strengthener derived from cows)
  • carmine (a colorant from beetle shells)
  • bone char (used in processing sugar to make it white)

Instead, we use these cruelty-free ingredients:

  • candelilla wax (made from plants) in our Cocoa/Lime Hemp Lip Balms
  • natural organic coconut oil and other non-animal-derived oils for moisturizing
  • iron oxides, chromium oxides, and ultramarines for colorant in our Whipped Sugar Scrubs
  • natural unrefined cane sugar in our Whipped Sugar Scrubs

Bergamot/Ylang Ylang Whipped Sugar Scrub

Using a sugar scrub can help clean skin’s surface and unclog pores, which helps with cell turnover.  By using a sugar scrub weekly, you will see a huge difference in the way your skin looks and feels.

How is Our Sugar Scrub Different from Other Sugar Scrubs?
Our Whipped Sugar Scrubs are 100% natural and you can them no matter if you have oily, dry, combination or mature skin.  We use pure unrefined cane sugar (which does not contain bone char) and add natural exfoliants like blueberry seeds, ground vanilla beans, rose hip seeds, and ground apricot seeds. Hothouse Botanicals’ Whipped Sugar Scrubs also contain ingredients to help hydrate skin such as organic coconut oil, organic extra virgin olive oil, organic shea butter, and natural Vitamin E.

Using a Sugar Scrub:
After cleansing skin, use a sugar scrub to exfoliate and condition the body.  Apply a handful of sugar scrub to wet skin and massage in circular motion over the entire body.  After rinsing off your sugar scrub, all of the dead skin cells will be removed and your skin will feel refreshed and healthy.  Be careful when leaving your tub or shower, since the moisturizing ingredients are slippery.

Instant Manicure:

Don’t have time for a manicure?  Take a few tablespoons of sugar scrub and massage it on your hands and nails in a circular motion for about a minute.  Rinse your hands and lightly towel dry.  Your skin will look radiantly healthy and your nails will be gently polished!
