Anthocyanin Creme Scrub

Beets and Elderberry make this Creme Scrub unique. As many of you know exfoliation is a very important step in skincare - see more below (1). Based on my research I found that Beetroot (Beta vulgaris) the main ingredient in this scrub is an active ingredient in anti-aging because they’re a type of flavonoid called Betalain similar to it’s sister Anthocyanin as it does the same thing. Flavinoids are a class of compounds with antioxidant effects. Betalains fill in the gaps of the cells + give a firm, robust, glowing nature at any age. They stimulate cell production + repair your skin. Elderberry (Sambucus nigra L.) is a widely disseminated plant that produces bright black berries containing high quantities of anthocyanins, acknowledged for their bioactivity and dye capacity. Anthocyanins are thought to be natural sun protectants as well as having antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

(1) I couldn’t recommend weekly exfoliation enough because in short a regal exfoliating routine can leave your skin looking glowy, dewy, fresh, + overall more healthy. Proper exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Naturally our skin sheds dead skin cells to make room for new skin cells every 30 days or so. By removing the outer layer of dead skin cells we uncover fresh new skin cells below. This opens up a pathway for moisturizing products to penetrate deeper into your skin which in turn makes them more effective.

My Experience: A rich and decadent texture, much thicker than I initially thought it would be. It's all natural and has a beautiful vibrant color. This scrub smells like a fresh fruit basket that's full of organic goodness. It's scent is very aromatic and pleasing to the senses. The grains of the caolin clay act as micro exfoliants. I very carefully use the scrub in circular motions making sure to be gentle to prevent any irritation. Once I exfoliate I leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes, wipe it off with a warm washcloth, rinse with a gentle gel cleanser and do my normal anti-aging skincare routine. It has active ingredients that have beneficial properties that enliven and brighten skin. Using this scrub will brighten your day as it's a real feel good product. I won't be repurchasing this scrub but enjoy having it as an option in my skincare collection.
