t's no secret, scrub me™ is all about using healthy ingredients to treat and pamper our skin. We not only pay close attention to what goes unto our bodies but also what goes into our system. Nutrition plays a pretty big role in maintaining healthy skin. Total body wellness is very important when striving for a radiant complexion! Certain proteins and carbs work with different vitamins and minerals to keep the skin's barrier functioning properly. Since we are all different, there is no one specific diet that will lead to bright, healthy skin. With each different skin type, concern, or condition come different nutritional changes that can be made to achieve the healthiest skin possible.Read More

We think understanding preservatives in skin care is important. While scrub me™ products do have antimicrobial and antioxidant ingredients, we do not use preservatives in our products. Some preservatives can cause skin reactions or sensitivity and are also known to be unhealthy. There is a wide range of preservatives so it can get a little confusing figuring out what is okay to use and what is not.Read More
