Ocean Salt Self-Preserving
What’s in it for you?
Instant radiance - achieved the good old-fashioned way. If you’re using a chemical exfoliant, try this cult self-preserving skin-cleanser instead - we’ve packed it with a bounty of beautiful ingredients to get your skin barrier in peak condition and removed the artificial preservatives into the bargain.
Ideal for complexions that feel shiny or dull, a blend of fine and hand-harvested sea salt provides medium to strong buffing action to stimulate skin cell turnover, and deeply cleanse away dirt and pollution. As you scrub, deeply softening mango butter, coconut oil, glycerine and silken tofu leave your skin rejuvenated, glowy and smooth as silk. Brightening days and complexions since 2014, this self-preserving version of our bestselling Ocean Salt has a slightly richer consistency than the original and still works wonders all over.
What’s in it for the world?
Ocean Salt face scrub cleans up ecosystems as well as complexions! The sea salt inside is responsibly sourced from Portuguese and Bulgarian salt pans that provide essential shelter for migrating birds and promote biodiversity. We are also gradually introducing labels composed of ocean-bound plastic salvaged from Malaysian shores - an innovation that’s helping to clear waste before it reaches the ocean. By choosing this self-preserving formula, you are also removing preservatives that could bioaccumulate in our water systems from production.

How to use:
Using a physical exfoliator allows you to tailor the intensity of your scrub so that it suits your skin perfectly and you don’t go too far. Apply generously to damp skin using a circular motion, rinse away and follow up with a good moisturiser.
But why choose self preserving?
This formula contains only natural preservatives to keep itself clean and safe to use. Salt, as well as being a kick-ass cleanser and exfoliator, is an age-old preservative, which prevents bacteria from growing and reproducing if used in high enough concentrations.
What’s more, this exotic scrub is vegan, thanks to the silken tofu and japan wax that help bind the mixture together. The added butters and oils in this self preserving formula help to make it feel a tad more delicate on the skin than its preserved counterpart. You may prefer to use this on your face, and Ocean Salt Preserved on the rest of your body - the choice is yours.
