FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Can I really exfoliate every day?
Of course, we cannot speak for other brands or exfoliating methods, and we suggest 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.
Regular exfoliation takes good skin and changes it to great skin.
It also increases blood flow and helps with muscle tone while gently massaging the skin.
Q. Do you have suggestions for use?
While there is absolutely no wrong way to use ScrubzBody Sugar Scrub, we recommend 2 specific things:
After getting your body dampened, move away from the water stream in the shower if it’s a larger space, or even turn the water off in a small shower. This way the scrub won’t melt too soon.
Take some scrub on the palm of one hand and spread it evenly on the other hand. This way, none falls in the shower and you have an easier way to spread it on different parts of your body. Repeat till your body is completely smooth.
Using a little less water keeps it more gritty, and more water starts the sugar melting and therefore it becomes a more gentle exfoliant.
Q. Should I use a washcloth, nylon mesh scrubber or body brush?
We say no need.
Obviously, you can, but we have a few reasons we think hands are best:
We want your hands to be 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. 🙁
When you are massaging your scalp with the scrub, use your fingertips to really run it through your hair.
Q. Can I really shave with ScrubzBody Scrub, Scrubz+ Facez or Shavez?
First of all, the scrub takes off dead skin before a razor would, so it eliminates annoying irritation and razor burn (dead skin doesn’t get caught in the razor).
Secondly, when you exfoliate and massage the pores, the hair stands up for a closer shave, virtually eliminating in-grown hairs.
Finally, when ScrubzBody scrub is rinsed off, sending dirt and dead skin down the drain, the 8 botanical oils remain on your skin.
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 are an emulsification of oil and are usually about 70% water.
Creams are an emulsification of water and around 50-70% oil.
Ointments typically contain over 80% of oil.
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.
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 fantastic 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 product is used, you are good to go! You will be clean, smooth, soft, and moisturized.
On other days, however, we recommend using an alcohol-free moisturizer, like Oilz+ daily, preferably within a minute of stepping out of a hot shower or bath so it mixes with the water. This really helps lock moisture into your skin.
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.
Our Lipz Lip Balm is whipped right into the Lipz Service.
Q. What is the difference between Unscented ScrubzBody Scrub, Facez and Scrubz+?
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.
Facez is unscented ScrubzBody Scrub that has been triple whipped with the addition of 25% more Jojoba oil, a pH-balancing oil 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 our 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, or those undergoing any treatments, as it has additional moisturizers.
Q. My child has super sensitive skin). Can she really use your products?

ScrubzBody Products have been formulated with 100% active ingredients that are gentle enough for every skin type.
Q. If a person is diabetic, can they use ScrubzBody Sugar Scrub?
