Containing a unique blend of natural oils, this gentle exfoliating scrub helps improve skin texture while keeping your skin deeply hydrated.

A natural humectant and source of alpha hydroxy acid, sugar is a more hydrating and gentle exfoliant compared to salt or apricot scrubs, making it perfect for those with dry or sensitive skin.
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is a fraction of whole coconut oil, so it doesn’t clog pores as easily. In addition to its anti-inflammatory properties, coconut oil contains lauric acid—a natural antibacterial.
Deeply moisturizing and nourishing, shea butter soothes dry skin by protecting its natural oils while being a good source of Vitamins A and E.

How Physical Exfoliants Work
The Skinfood Black Sugar Mask uses natural sugar grains to gently renew dull, tired skin.
1. Dead skin cells can clog pores and give the appearance of dull, tired skin
2. Physical exfoliants help renew the topmost layer of skin by scrubbing away dead skin cells
3. However, harsh exfoliants like apricot scrubs damage the skin, weakening its barrier function
4. Sugar grains gradually dissolve in water, preventing damage caused by over exfoliating
