Why Coconut Oil?

There are many options when it comes to selecting a base for a bath scrub. I'm often asked why I chose coconut oil. 

First, it is important to know that all coconut oils are not created alike: 

  • Unrefined coconut oil, which is the base of all Sugar Momma Scrubs, is extracted from the fresh meat of a coconut. It is not processed or altered from its natural state in any way. 
  • Refined coconut oil is extracted from the dried meat of a coconut and requires processing, like bleaching, and adding synthetic ingredients. While it is cheaper, it doesn't carry all of the same moisturizing benefits of unrefined coconut oil. 

Coconut oil touts many amazing benefits - it is a skin softener, it is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, and it works for and with all skin types.
