Sugar is likely to be the last thing you think of when it comes to your health. Consuming too much sugar can have a negative impact on your over all well-being. However, did you know sugar is an excellent topical ingredient to incorporate into your skin care routine? Eminence Organic Skin Care utilizes raw sugar in their products to help promote healthy skin, lasting results and a safe environment.

Sugar is extremely gentle on the skin

Compared to salt exfoliants, sugar is made up of smaller particles making it less abrasive, perfect for sensitive skin (eminenceorganics.com). Sugar is a natural humectant which replenishes the skin with moisture and keeps the skin hydrated. Salt does the opposite, not only is salt dehydrating it also strips your skin of its natural oils. When choosing a sugar scrub, there are different grains and types of sugar to consider. Brown sugar has a softer consistency than granulated sugar, making brown sugar a more favorable facial scrub. Raw sugar is much more coarse and is recommended to apply as a body scrub (huffingtonpost.com).

Sugar is a glycolic acid, which is a natural Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)

These natural acids are used by dermatologists and skin care specialists to help remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover. By doing so, sugar based products and treatments reveal a more youthful looking complexion. Because a fresh layer of skin is now exposed, it is highly recommended to follow up with a sunscreen to protect your skin from harm (huffingtonpost.com). Professional products and treatments typically contain 10% or higher glycolic acid concentrate rather than over the counter products, which are much lower. The higher the concentrate the more intense and effective the treatment. Before taking a professional product home have a skin care specialist educate you on how to use it. Now that the skin has been exfoliated, it can easily absorb vitamins and nutrients provided from other skin care products, such as serums and moisturizers. This allows these skin care products to work more effectively (eminenceorganics.com).

Sugar is organically grown

At Pharaoh’s Hairum we are committed to using only the safest, most natural skin care products. Eminence Organics is an all natural skin care line that emphasizes the importance of a healthy environment. It’s no secret that air pollutants, chemicals and other environmental factors have a direct negative effect on our skin and our health. Eminence sugar scrubs are organically grown without synthetic pesticides or herbicides. The naturally sourced sugar scrubs dissolve completely in warm water. Where as generic body scrubs that are made with synthetic microbeads can not be broken down, causing serious harm to our planet’s water systems.
