We’ve all seen those shiny commercial body scrubs with catchy names and promises of radiant skin. But have you ever stopped to look at what’s really in those bottles? Synthetic scrubs might seem like a quick fix, but there are so many reasons to choose handmade, all-natural alternatives. Let’s explore why handmade scrubs are the real deal!

What’s Really in Synthetic Scrubs?

Most synthetic scrubs are packed with artificial fragrances, parabens, and even plastic microbeads. These ingredients might give you that immediate exfoliation, but they come with long-term downsides like skin irritation and environmental damage. Over time, they can cause dryness, breakouts, and even allergic reactions.

Why Handmade Body Scrubs Are Better

Handmade scrubs use natural, high-quality ingredients like organic oils, sea salts, and essential oils. These ingredients aren’t just gentle on your skin—they’re also packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that truly nourish and rejuvenate.

Imagine the difference between a natural safflower oil scrub that hydrates your skin and a synthetic scrub that might strip it of its natural oils. Then imagine the difference between the aromatherapy benefits of a scrub made with essential oils versus one made with synthetic fragrances. Mindblowing, really!

Benefits of Handmade Body Scrubs

Handmade scrubs offer a level of customization that mass-produced scrubs simply can’t. Whether you’re looking for an invigorating peppermint scrub or a soothing lavender one, there’s something for everyone. And because these scrubs are made in small batches, you can trust that each one is crafted with care.

For example here at Susan’s Soaps we offer both Sugar Scrubs available in 4 different essential oil scent blends and Salt Glows available in two different essential oil scent blends.

Using a handmade scrub feels like a luxury spa treatment right at home. The natural scents and textures provide a relaxing, indulgent skincare ritual that’s a far cry from the generic experience of commercial products.

The primary skincare benefits of body scrubs are exfoliating and moisturizing. I’m sure you are familiar with why you should be moisturizing but you may not be as familar with the benefits of exfoliating.

Benefits of exfoliating:

  1. Sloughs off dead skin cells so skin is smoother and brighter
  2. Helps unclog pores
  3. Can make your skin smoother and brighter
  4. Can help promote collagen production resulting in fewer lines and sagging
