How do I use the Gelato Sugar Scrub?
Scoop out the scrub with the spoon provided and apply to damp skin in a circular motion, taking care to concentrate on problem areas. You will notice the scrub will turn into a lotion when water is added. Leave it on your skin for a few minutes then rinse and towel dry. Our Gelato scrubs are made from all natural ingredients so there should be no reason why it can't be used on all skin types. We recommend you always do a patch test before use just to be sure.If you have a reaction, please discontinue use.I have a nut allergy can I use your scrubs?
Yes and No. Soapy Sweets handmade soap is made the old-fashioned way using the cold process method which mixes lye (dissolved in liquid) with oils, causing a chemical reaction, producing soap and glycerin. Our recipe is calculated to have more than enough oils to react with the lye solution, which ensures there is NO active lye left in our soaps. So although lye is one of the ingredients in our recipe, none is present in the final product - just pure, cleansing soap and moisturizing glycerin.
Well, we test every batch we make - but only on ourselves and other willing humans. No testing on animals but we do test on anyone who will let us. Many hours were spent researching and experimenting to come up with our own original soap recipe which is filled with lots of skin-loving ingredients.
Handmade soap gets harder the older it gets which makes it last longer. Time will affect the intensity of any fragrance in the soap though, and because we do not add any of those nasty chemical preservatives, we recommend that our soaps should be used within 1 year. Like all soap, if you leave it in the bottom of the bath or in a puddle of water it going to go soggy mush. To help make your soap last longer, keep the bar in a dish with good drainage and allow it to dry out naturally between uses.
Glycerin is a natural by-product of the soap making process. It is a humectant, which means it draws water from the air and helps retain moisture in the skin leaving it soft and supple.Glycerin is critical to maintaining healthy skin.
Many of the commercially produced soaps that you buy in the drug or grocery store are not really soap. They are closer to detergent. You know, the stuff you use to wash your clothes or dishes. Not exactly what you want to use on your skin.
These commercially produced "soaps" have the glycerin extracted using chemical solvents, which is then sold to cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies for a huge profit. They then replace the glycerin with cheap, chemical fillers which can be very harsh and irritating to the skin.
Handmade soap is made the old-fashioned way with lots of skin-loving ingredients and all the naturally produced glycerin that the soap and your skin needs.
