Why should you exfoliate?
Exfoliating is one beauty habit everyone should pick up, especially in the winter months when skin tends to more dry. Exfoliating removes dry skin cells from the surface and allows your skin to better soak in moisture for soft, healthy, glowing skin.
100% Pure body scrubs instantly make your skin smooth and vibrant – gentle yet highly effective, they remove your dry, dead skin cells and then nourish your skin with organic rosehip and apricot oils to deeply moisturize.
100% Pure facial scrubs contain perfectly round jojoba beads that gently buff away dead skin cells without scratching the delicate skin on our faces. The jojoba beads are non-abrasive, and instead of roughly scratching the skin, they gently roll away any dullness, bumps, and flakes.
How often should you exfoliate?
Because 100% Pure facial scrubs are so gentle yet effective, you can use them 2-3 times a week. Be sure to use an exfoliating scrub on your body at least a few times a week to keep your skin soft and hydrated.

The Situation: Milk producers treat their dairy cattle with recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH or rBST, as it is also known) to boost milk production. But rBGH also increases udder infections and even pus in the milk. It also leads to higher levels of a hormone called insulin-like growth factor in milk. In people, high levels of IGF-1 may contribute to breast, prostate, and colon cancers. “When the government approved rBGH, it was thought that IGF-1 from milk would be broken down in the human digestive tract,” says North. As it turns out, the casein in milk protects most of it, according to several independent studies. “There’s not 100% proof that this is increasing cancer in humans,” admits North. “However, it’s banned in most industrialized countries.”
The Answer: Check labels for rBGH-free, rBST-free, produced without artificial hormones, or organic milk. These phrases indicate rBGH-free products.
