A Scrub Above—EO Moroccan Lava Clay

Minimally processed and preservative-free, EO’s Moroccan Lava Clay Exfoliating Scrub comes in the form of a powder that can be blended with water, lotion, or honey, along with a few drops of essential oil. Use it as a scrub or a mask—varying the liquid-to-powder ratio—to start (or end) your day with a healthy glow.

Discover the benefits that make this exfoliating scrub, formulated using ingredients sourced from all over the world, the perfect companion for your skin.

Satisfy Thirsty Skin

In addition to soothing itchy skin, Oat Flour contains beta glucans—powerful sugars lining our cell walls that help defend the skin against dehydration. ProVitamin B5 Panthenol, a gentle vitamin and member of the B-complex family, further counters any dryness produced by exfoliation.

Do Away with Damage

Moroccan Lava Clay, which is found beneath the Atlas Mountains in Morocco—home to some of North Africa’s most remote villages—has been used as a beauty treatment for over 1400 years. That’s because it contains high percentages of minerals, including silicon, magnesium, and potassium. The clay cleanses the skin through a process called ion exchange—binding to, absorbing, and replacing impurities.

Tsubaki Oil, also known as Camellia Oil, is derived from the seeds of a flower native to Japan and Korea. Often used for cosmetic purposes, the light, antioxidant-rich oil works to reduce visible sun damage and the appearance of fine lines.

Say Hello to a Healthy Glow

Enzymes found in both Papaya (papain) and Pineapple (bromelain) gently dissolve the proteins found in dead skin.

Once the proteins have been broken down by the fruit enzymes, tiny Candelilla Wax particles gently slough off the now-softened materials to reveal fresh, glowing skin. The wax itself is obtained from the leaves of a small shrub native to Northern Mexico.

Calm and Comfort Your Skin

Exfoliation opens the door for the absorption of ingredients that soothe and nourish your skin, such as a powerful (and refreshing) blend of organic Aloe and Carrot Seed Oil.

Aloe Vera, which serves many dermatological purposes, was known among ancient Egyptians as “The Plant of Immortality.” Its benefits range from anti-inflammation to cell regeneration to a reduction in blemishes.

Carrot Seed Oil, which is rich in antioxidants called carotenoids, tones and rejuvenates the skin, lessening the appearance of aging with the help of Vitamins C and E. Similar to Aloe, the oil also has healing properties that serve to soothe irritated skin, curbing redness and inflammation—all while adding a touch of brightness.

Whether you have plenty of time for a relaxing mask or need a pick-me-up in a pinch, our Moroccan Lava Clay Exfoliating Scrub helps hydrate and soften skin.
