A long hot bath is one of my absolute favorite indulgences, and my new tub of Abra Therapeutics Cellular Detox Body Scrub is a great product to have for such an occasion.
Ingredients (provided with product packaging)- “A natural mineral blend of 20% volcanic ash, sodium borate, sodium carbonate and trace minerals, organic oils of almond (prunus amygdalus), olive (olea europaea), sunflower (helianthus annuus), and jojoba (simmondsia chinensis) infused with organic dandelion root (taraxicum officinal), and burdock root (arctium lappa), essential oils of grapefruit (citrus paradisi), juniper (juniperus communis), lavender (lavendula officinalis), lemongrass (cymbopogon citratus), cedarleaf (thuja occidentalis), and fir (abies sibirica), and natural vitamin E (mixed tocopherols).”
Since I couldn’t locate this product in the Cosmetics Database, I’ve linked to each ingredient individually above. The only ingredients with hazard scores above a 3 are as follows: Sodium Borate (5-6, depending on usage) & Trace Minerals (4).
Some great things about this product:
1.It’s cruelty, paraben, sulfate, preservative and artificial fragrance/color free.
2. It contains organic ingredients.
3. The container is made from #1 plastic and can easily be recycled.
Product Description(provided at abratherapeutics.com)- “Our lives are full of exposure to daily pollutants that cling to the surface of our skin. Cellular Detox Body Scrub is made to neutralize these free radical pollutants and shed them from your body. Organic Dandelion and burdock combine with essences of Grapefruit and Juniper for an uplifting aromatic pleasure.”
Performance– I’ve taken three baths with this product thus far, and each was lovelier than the last. I tend to concentrate on my arms, legs, and feet, which are the least delicate and most neglected areas. Scrubbing my legs with this product before shaving results in some seriously soft legs, and my elbows feel just dreamy. Breathing in this scrub as I use it is also a real treat (see below).
Scent– It smells a lot like citrus fruit and also like a forest. I love it.
Rating– I’m subtracting 2 points for the 2 questionable ingredients, so this product receives an 8/10.
Would I purchase this item again? Totally!
