All vegetable and organic components are used in this thickened body scrub base. When 1 part sugar is mixed with it, this becomes a paste, eliminating the "pooling" of oils associated with many brands. Typically, a scrub acts as a mild exfoliator when rubbed on the skin; but this formula includes emulsifiers, oils, and fatty acids, essentially making it a cream base...minus the water. When the scrub is exposed to water, you will notice your skin soft and conditioned when rinsed, unlike the greasy afterfeel of straight oils (requiring soap, then moisturizing). By adding your own sugar, you keep costs down on the final product. You can use salt, but it tends to create a small pool of oil on the surface and dries the skin much more than sugar.
