Sand Man – Volcanic
Facial Cleansing Scrub
Activated charcoal and other gentle exfoliants take center stage
in this natural formulation that is safe for almost any skin type.
We chose it because activated charcoal draws
bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of
skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne. Activated charcoal powder is proven to adsorb
thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances. This adsorptive quality can have a powerful
effect when it comes to binding to impurities on the surface of your skin, such
as dirt, pollutants from our environment, and build-up. In addition to removing impurities, activated
charcoal’s slightly gritty texture makes it a great option for gentle
exfoliation atop the other gentle exfoliators in this formulation.
Activated charcoal, again with its
adsorptive quality, can bind to excess oil, while gently loosening deeply-ingrained
particles with its gritty texture. Excess oil and dead skin can become trapped
in pores over time, causing them to enlarge with debris. Large pores can give
us a tired, aged look – and who wants that? The use of activated charcoal in
this cleansing scrub can help loosen the debris clogging up your pores and
adsorb any foreign impurities that may have slipped into your enlarged pores,
helping to shrink them.
Best for: Combination skin, sensitive skin, oily skin.
Directions: Scoop a nickel sized dollop from the jar, wet it,
massage it gentle between your fingers and then apply it to your face in a slow,
circular motion. Use 2-3 times a week. Follow with Forever Young Lavender & Aloe
Infused Toner and then your favorite moisturizer or night cream.

BENTONITE CLAY: Bentonite is mild, which means that even for those with more sensitive skin,
they can use bentonite and not worry about any adverse reactions (for the most
part. Still test it on your skin). It also produces results. Yes, you’ll start to see a difference the more
consistently you use it! As mentioned
before, bentonite will remove toxins from your skin. When you use bentonite clay,
it will both pull out toxins and leave behind healing minerals in its place for
your facial skin to absorb. Talk about awesome! Bentonite masks even help with
unclogging and shrinking pores. In order to keep your pores smaller, you need
to make sure they aren’t clogged. Applying a bentonite mask to your face will
do just that. Bentonite exfoliates naturally, which means any dead skin cells
removed will be removed, and the exfoliation will slow any fine line and
ICELANDIC BLACK SAND: This sand comes from a volcanic beach on the
Southern Coast of Iceland and acts as a mild exfoliant for your skin. It is important not to use over harsh
exfoliants on the face or you may cause micro-tears on the skin’s surface and
create an entrance for undesirable bacteria.
Our choice of this fine volcanic black sand combined with a small
particle jojoba bead, makes the perfect facial exfoliant.
SEAWEED EXTRACT: This
ultra-hydrating extract is ideal for all skin types, even for those with
sensitive or mature skin. Seaweed is
full of humectants that draw in moisture from the environment, and vitamin E, so
is excellent for skin hydration. The amino
acids in seaweed help your skin to plump up, smoothing out fine lines and
wrinkles while the minerals contained naturally in seaweed create a barrier to
protect your skin from harsh weather or overly dry environments. Seaweed extract can also even skin tone due
to high levels of vitamins B and C.
