Product FAQ

- COCONUT ALMOND -

 


1. Why is my scrub sometimes hard and sometimes soft?

Our coconut almond scrub is packed full of the unique qualities of coconut oil. Coconut oil is the only oil that completely hardens in the cold, gets softer in warmer temperatures and it's melting point is commonly 24 degrees. That means depending on temperatures in your home, your scrub may change.

Don't worry - it won't lower the quality of the scrub to warm up and cool down, so if it's tougher and you like it soft, just stick it under warm water for a few minutes (with the lid tightly sealed!) or even the microwave for a 30 second zap.

2. Can I use this scrub on my face? 
  • Heck yes. This scrub is very gentle, plus that coconut oil is so rich - it does wonders. If you find you have any breaking out when using coconut oil, just be sure to steam your face before using and remove the scrub thoroughly when rinsing and drying off.

3. How often can I use this scrub?

  • This is an extremely gentle scrub and can be used daily without any concern!
