About This Recipe:

Customers love sugar scrubs for their gentle exfoliating properties, and cosmetic makers love them for how easy they are to make! This oil-based scrub mixes oil with sugar to create the exfoliating scrub. The sugar gently sloughs off dead skin while the oils bind moisture to the skin. These are greasier than other types of scrubs, but they are also fantastic for adding moisture back to skin! Oil based scrubs sometimes settle over time, and may need to be stirred before being use. This project combines Babassu Oil with White Sugar to create the base of the scrub. Meyer Lemon  Fragrance is added for the awesome aroma, Lemon Powder adds extra exfoliation and Vitamin E prevents the oils from going rancid.
