Exfoliation is essential for glowing skin to remove all dead skin cells and leave skin smooth, soft and bright.
These exfoliating scrub recipes are 100% natural using our beautiful Cocoché as a base (note, never use any coconut oils on your skin that aren’t 100% extra virgin, unrefined and organic).
They are full of antioxidants for cell repair, minerals and essential oils, you’re skin will thank you!

These recipes are super simple to make at home, just be sure NOT to heat the Cocoché first as it may dissolve the salts and sugars. If your Cocoché is a little hard, whipping it up will help get it to the right consistency.
