This scrub is a highly-concentrated pro-radiance plant-based nutrition that reveals your polished look and bright complexion. It contains advanced glow-boosting microfine scrub that provides gentle exfoliation while feeding your skin with botanical actives designed to restore skin health, clarity and tone. Encapsulating the scent of clementine orange, this scrub’s bright orange color is a blend of turmeric (curcumin’s golden yellow color), astaxanthin (carotenoid’s reddish pigment), and bearberry (red fruit pigment). This does not stain the skin.
Glow and radiance are fulfilled by the highly potent combination of alpha arbutin, VItamin C, organic licorice, Japanese mulberry, astaxanthin, Wakame bioferment, turmeric, apricot seed powder, and the finest botanical ingredients that support skin luminosity. Derived from bearberry plant, Alpha Arbutin is a plant-based upgrade to hydroquinone, a toxic skin lightener banned in some countries. It brightens the skin by preventing the formation of melanin and fading existing dark spots.
