FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Can I really exfoliate every day?
We cannot speak for other brands or methods, and we suggest 1-2x a week for both effectiveness and economy, however, ScrubzBody Sugar Scrub is absolutely gentle enough to use on a daily basis on both face and body.
Eating well and drinking lots of water is a must for great skin, but it is regular exfoliation that takes good skin and makes it great!
It also increases blood flow while gently massaging the skin and helps with muscle tone.
Plus, every other product works better and looks better on gently polished and nourished skin.
Q. Do you have suggestions for use?
While there is absolutely no “wrong” way to use ScrubzBody Sugar Scrub, I recommend a few specific things when I do a demonstration:
I suggest moving away from the water stream, or even turning it off, after dampening your skin.
I also recommend taking a little on the palm of one hand and spreading it on the other hand, so you have better, more even coverage on the skin.
Using a little less water keeps it more gritty, and a little more water starts the sugar melting and therefore it becomes a more gentle exfoliant for the face and more sensitive areas.
Q. Should I use a washcloth, nylon mesh scrubber or body brush?
We say no.
Obviously, there is no wrong way to use the product, but we have a few reasons we think hands are best.
We want your hands as soft as your body!
We want you to enjoy every drop!
When a washcloth or brush is used, the product can get lost or fall into the shower and that means less on your beautiful body. 🙁
Also, when you are massaging your head, (yes, it’s great at stimulating your scalp skin) use your fingertips to really run it through your hair.
Q. How is it possible to shave with ScrubzBody Scrub, Facez, Scrubz+ or Shavez?
There are a few reasons that the exfoliating ScrubzBody products are so good to shave with:
First of all, the products take off dead skin before a razor would, therefore eliminating irritation and razor burn (dead skin doesn’t get caught in the razor).
Secondly, when you exfoliate and massage the pores, the hair follicles stand up and don’t curl down, virtually eliminating in-grown hairs.
Finally, when the sugar is rinsed off, sending dirt and dead skin down the drain, the 8 natural oils remain on the skin surface, so no shaving cream is necessary, because the oils are all you need to shave with.
A friction-free surface ensures a cleaner, closer shave.
Q. What is the difference between a lotion, cream and ointment?
Lotions emulsify oil and water and contain at least 70% water. Creams emulsify oil and water and contain at least 70% oil. Ointments typically have over 80% oil or butter.
Our creams, balms, and lotions, however, are different! We only use pure butter and oils. That’s it!
So, because there is no water in any of our products, you call them whatever you want :-).
Q. Are your products tested on animals?
NO! But they are thoroughly enjoyed by them.
Roberta has scrubbed her dogs clean and made their coats super soft, with ScrubzBody Sugar Scrub.
And when there is no time for a shower, Oilz+ rubbed on their coats makes them smell great, and their fur gleam!
Q. Are your products vegan?
All products are Vegan except: Bye Bye Bagz, Balmz and Scrubz+ as all three contain nourishing Emu Oil. All items containing Emu oil are prepared with separate bowls and utensils from our Vegan products.
Q. Speaking of Emu oil, what’s all the fuss?
One of the most extraordinary things about nature is that it somehow supplies us with what we need.
Emu oil is so great because it’s made up of 70% essential fatty acids (translation: great things skin needs to repair and rejuvenate skin).
It can help reduce the appearance of scarring and stretch marks and one of its components is a natural anti-inflammatory.
Q. How often should I moisturize?
When a ScrubzBody scrub product is used, you have moisturized your skin already.
On other days, we recommend using an alcohol-free moisturizer twice a day, preferably within a minute of stepping out of a hot shower or bath.
This helps lock moisture in.
Q. What is a lip scrub and why do I need something different for my lips?
Lip scrubs are different from other scrubs in that they are 100% food safe. You can lick it off, or rinse it off, your choice.
Lips have no sweat, nor oil glands, plus, we lick them and they dry out, so they chap the fastest of all skin.
When you polish the dead skin away, you are left with softer, smoother lips. And the best part is that our Lipz Service has our Lipz lip balm whipped right in.
Q. What is the difference between Unscented ScrubzBody Scrub, Facez and Scrubz+?
Our Unscented ScrubzBody Sugar Scrub is 8 Botanical oils (Canola, Olive oil, Grapeseed, Coconut, Jojoba, Aloe Vera, Soybean & Vitamin E) whipped in sugar to create the fragrance-free version of our most popular product.
With Facez, we took unscented scrub and triple-whipped it while adding 25% more Jojoba oil, a pH-balancing oil that is great for acne-prone and sensitive skin. It is great for all faces, but we usually recommend this product to our tween-teen clientele.
Scrubz+ is unscented ScrubzBody Scrub that has been made extra creamy with the addition of our Balmz body balm. We usually recommend this to our older customers, those with sensitive skin, or those undergoing any treatments, as it has additional moisturizers.
Q. My child has problematic & sensitive skin. Can she really use your products?
Yes! Please test on a small area first, just to be safe.
Customers have told us that they have stopped using prescription lotions etc. because the ScrubzBody products worked better.
Q. If a person is diabetic, can they use ScrubzBody Sugar Scrub?
We always suggest mentioning this to your Dr., but every customer we know who has diabetes has never had a problem.
