Better yet, add some Dead Sea Salt, Cinnamon and Clove to spice up the mixture. The end result is a rich and aromatic exfoliator for your whole body. As you scrub away dead skin cells, new ones take their place, leaving behind glowing and radiant skin. Nourishing shea butter, avocado and coconut oils help protect and moisturize your skin. Follow up with Body Lotion or Body Oil to make sure your skin is soft for days to come.

While I typically prefer sweet sugar scrubs (you already know this if you read my Best Natural Scrubs For Your Body), this is definitely a spicy scrub. It’s got cinnamon and cloves for a spicy aromatic, while the sea salt and coffee do a great job of exfoliating the skin and removing the cellular debris. The shea butter, avocado and coconut oils sink into the new skin, protecting and moisturizing it. With the unusual, spicy scent this is a very masculine smelling scrub to me. It does a great job of removing dead skin cells and leaving me with silky soft skin.
I do want to point out that while it is cruelty free and has certified organic ingredients, it also contains beeswax (cera alba), so it is not vegan.
I love that 100% of the profits are going towards saving Yasuni National Park in Ecuador. I think that’s awesome. It’s also great that this is a Florida company and they’re only a few hours away from me in Boca Raton.
