The idea that you have to “slough off” dead skin cells is not new. But exfoliators in the skincare industry range from gentle to rough, and they don’t all have ingredients that nourish the vulnerable skin beneath those exfoliated cells. Enter Hibiscus Pure - a gentle exfoliator that works on all skin types to renew and replenish at the same time.
Many conventional “exfoliating” products contain salt and sugar in combination with various chemical liquids, or manufactured “microbeads” that don’t biodegrade well in our environment. Plus, these kinds of scrubs are often harsh and overly drying for the skin. Instead of reaching for those artificial microbeads, why not look to nature for naturally occurring exfoliates?
The hibiscus flower is used in a variety of skincare applications, particularly because it’s known as a gentle ingredient that improves skin’s texture. The flower has naturally occurring antioxidants similar to those found in cranberry and bilberry, and firming agents that improve skin’s elasticity. Some skincare devotees even refer to hibiscus flower as “natural botox,” for its ability to firm skin. It’s also a source of natural AHAs, or alpha-hydroxy acids, which exfoliate and improve cell turnover while reducing the risk of acne and breakouts. AHAs also have a natural “astringent” quality - like lemon juice, witch hazel and even super cold water, astringents help tighten pores. The flower petals contain a gentle, mucus-like compound called mucilage, an anti-inflammatory, protein-rich ingredient produced by many plants.
All that in a flower? Yes! When you trust plant botanicals for your skin, you get multitasking ingredients that work gently. The Hibiscus Pure formula also has anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredients like aloe vera gel and honey, and a bit of that magical and ever-popular French natural clay - known for it’s ability to remove impurities from the skin as well as prevent acne, cystic acne and blackheads.
Essential oils like sweet orange, lavender, and jasmine give this product a beautiful, botanical scent and add extra oil compounds that are antibacterial and healthy - they promote skin healing, nutrition, and also have a cleansing effect. There are no harsh chemicals masquerading as “fragrance” - just pure, completely USDA organic plant potions that work their skincare magic every time you gently massage them into your beloved skin.
If you need a flowery treat that results in a healthy glow - it’s time to slip this one into your medicine cabinet!
