What is a Red Bean Scrub and How to Use It


This aromatic, all natural herbal scrub originates from the state of Andra Pradesh, India, where it has been used as an organic scrub for centuries. There are multiple different ways to make this scrub as you can add and substitute different ingredients from what you have available in your home. It is usually a dry powder but we decided to make it a little differently to enhance the user experience. We use 13 natural ingredients that gently cleanse and exfoliate your skin making it soft to the touch. It has the ability to even skin tone, clear blemishes and sooth rashes and eczema.  


The base of our scrub is Red Bean Lentils, dried and ground to create a great texture for exfoliating. To add aroma and health benefits to the scrub, we use additional powdered herbs and ingredients. The benefits of each ingredient (both external and internal) is hard to capture in one sentence so I encourage you to do some research on your own!
