New at PharmacyMix: Burt’s Bees Cranberry & Pomegranate Sugar Scrub, the ultimate sugar fix! Exfoliating crystals mingle with Pomegranate Oil, Cranberry Seed, and Shea Butter to gently polish and condition your skin, leaving it feeling healthy, smooth and beautifully glowing. It’s the sweetest kind of clean! And just in time for summer!
Generously apply Burt’s Bees Cranberry & Pomegranate Sugar Scrub in circular motions to exfoliate the dead skin cells that sit on the surface and make the skin look dull and dry. Removing them not only reveals the newer skin below but allows for better absorption of body lotions and creams.
The sugar crystals and cranberry seeds in this luxurious body treat will help scrub away the rough and tough areas while the pomegranate oil, rich in antioxidants, can help fight free radicals that can damage and age the skin. Pomegranate is an ancient fruit with a rich history of uses in traditional medicine. Pomegranate oil is also a good source of certain nutrients like punicic acid, an Omega 5 conjugated fatty acid, as well as phytoestrogens and a rare, plant-based source of conjugated linoleic acid which is used to replenish moisture.
A recent study from the University of Michigan Medical School, published in the February 2006 Journal of Ethnopharmacology, shows that pomegranate seed oil helps stimulate skin cell regeneration. This study joins a growing body of research supporting the benefits of pomegranate seed oil as a skin treatment, including a 2003 South Dakota State University study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food.
Burt’s Bees Cranberry & Pomegranate Sugar Scrub is indulgent, irresistible, and perfect for the body, feet and even hands. Plus, it’s 99.1% natural with no sulfates, parabens, phthalates or petrochemicals.
One word of caution, though: this scrub looks and smells so delicious that you’ll be tempted to eat it all up with a spoon. Resist!
