Tried, tested, and true. It’s been our mission to provide services and products that are aimed to take care of the body and skin, and to inspire our community to embrace their natural beauty. For us, to be able to deliver premium quality services means using quality products. It’s our responsibility to ensure the products we use are safe for our team who will be using them daily, and highly effective for our clients who trust us with their nail care.
In 2018 we collaborated with F. Miller Skincare to develop our own all-natural and effective skincare products designed to deeply hydrate, nourish, and revitalize the skin with the intent to be used in-shop with every nail care service. Fast forward 3 years and over 20,000 services later, we're proud and excited to bring our products out of our shop and into your home.
Our Dead Sea salt scrub is a personal fave. We use our scrub in-shop as a part of our services as we believe skin health is an integral part of proper nail care. Our Naked Body Scrub is a gentle exfoliating and detoxifying Dead Sea salt scrub that leaves skin smooth and soft while promoting skin cell regeneration and increasing circulation.
The reinvigorating citrus, herbaceous, and woody aroma of our scrub is uplifting and calming, and derives from a blend of essential oils that contain purifying properties. Rosemary oil deeply cleanses completion, bitter orange oil cleanses impurities from skin, cypress oil is antibacterial and stimulates muscle tissue, and lavender oil reduces inflammation and anti-fungal.
The unique velvety texture of our scrub allows you to apply it directly on your skin dry without crumbling, and damp while the salt grains continue to gently remove dead skin. Our formulation is composed of emulsifying agents that are activated by water so that the scrub rinses off clean leaving a soft and protective barrier over the skin.
So we all know exfoliating gently removes dead skin cells which is effectively unclogging your pores, preventing build up of bacteria and debris underneath your skin. When your pores are unclogged and rid of dead skin cells, your other skincare products are able to penetrate more deeply, and work more effectively. Right? But exfoliating does so much more, and on a much deeper level.
Good blood circulation is important for proper organ functionality. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout our body, and naturally detoxifies as it helps carry out waste products from those cells.
Exfoliating increases blood circulation as it boosts blood flow to your skins' surface, supporting your skin's protective abilities through constant turnover of cells (aka cell regeneration). Cell regeneration promotes collagen and skin elasticity while supporting the body’s natural response in new skin cell growth, leaving your skin to look more plump and youthful. The massaging action involved in exfoliating can assist lymphatic drainage and stretch skin tissue to reduce cellulite appearance.
Good skin health is deeper than what you see at the surface, and by exfoliating it helps maintain your skin’s ability to protect your body.
Dead Sea salt vs. Sugar
Although sugar is also a great natural exfoliator, we favour Dead Sea salt because it is rich in minerals that provide an abundance of health benefits with every use. Dead Sea salt is composed of mineral salts extracted from the Dead Sea. It is packed with magnesium which hydrates your skin by directly strengthening the skin's lipid barrier keeping moisture locked in, and helps your skin retain water. Dead Sea salt simultaneously hydrates and reduces inflammation, helping to relieve many skin conditions and irritations. It is high in sulfur, making it an effective skin cleaner as it dries out dead skin cells to help unclog pores - great for acne-prone skin. And if it couldn’t get any better, Dead Sea salt detoxifies the skin for a healthier glow.
Magnesium in Dead Sea salt, hydrates your skin and locks in moisture. As well as sunflower seed oil replenishes the moisture in your skin, while rice bran oil retains moisture to keep your skin hydrated even after you rinse off the scrub.
Increase blood circulation
Our scrub formula is made up of minerals and oils that increase blood circulation. The minerals in Dead Sea salt enhance your skin cells' metabolism and increase blood flow to the areas you apply it together with rice bran oil and shea butter which improves circulation as well.
Dead Sea salt minerals lock in moisture, sunflower seed and rice bran oils moisturize and promote regeneration of skin cells. Shea butter is also known as the “Superfood” for the skin. Derived from kernels of the Shea Tree’s fruits, supports skin elasticity, boosts collagen production, and increases circulation while promoting skin cell regeneration.
Cleanses and detoxifies
Naturally the blend of Dead Sea salt, rice bran oil, and shea butter work to increase blood circulation which in turn helps to carry out waste products from your skin cells -- cleansing the skin from the inside out. Also, Dead Sea salt is a natural detoxifier, high in sulphur, it is an effective skin cleaner as it dries out dead skin cells to help unclog pores. Rosemary essential oil deeply cleanses your complexion and stimulates healing, bitter orange essential oil cleanses dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin, and lavender essential oil unclogs pores, reduces inflammation, and is anti-fungal.
The act of exfoliating is undemanding, by only needing to scrub 2-3 times a week it delivers a great amount of benefits for your skin with minimal effort.
Our Naked Body Scrub delivers results where each ingredient was added with intent and purpose. From the use of the exfoliant to the composition of the aroma, they all work in synergy to clarify and purify your skin.
