Cactus & Ivy features a unique and extensive line of body scrubs that utilize a natural base of exfoliating ingredients such as cocoa butter, white sugar, salt, and turbinado sugar. Often used to sweeten the finest teas, turbinado sugar is raw sugar that has been only partially refined and washed. The sugar is easily recognized by its blond color and brown sugar flavor. The product benefits from turbinado sugar in several ways. This type if sugar “retains the vitamins and minerals present in sugarcane juice.” While each scrub is made with the same exfoliating ingredients, each scrub “has its own main oil that compliments the overall formula.” The scrubs also include a variety of beans, seeds and/or botanicals. To help extend the life of Cactus & Ivy body scrubs, each 10-18 ounce jar includes a scoop. By keeping water (and hands) out of the product, this also helps maintain freshness.
The Cactus & Ivy body scrub line includes: cocoa mint scrub, cran citrus polish, and fresh breeze loofah.

About Cactus & Ivy
Cactus & Ivy creates natural spa and body products by hand. Cactus & Ivy products contain specialty and essential oils that are high in vitamins A, C, D, E, and F, as well as Omega 3, Oleic Acid, Palmitoleic Acid and Linoleic Acid. This combination of oils, along with other ingredients that are free from artificial flavors and colors help to revitalize the skin and “restore the skins normal balance.” The company sources oils that ate phthalate free and in 2008, Cactus & Ivy removed all animal products from its ingredients list. This means the company no longer uses beeswax or honey. Instead, Cactus & Ivy uses Candelilla Wax. This also means that Cactus & Ivy is now 100% vegan.
