Vegan Cranberry & Almond Gentle Scrub

This week for our #makeitmonday we have a Vegan Cranberry & Almond Gentle Scrub; made using cranberry powder for a natural fragrance and rich colour. Cranberries have anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties that help to treat ache and blemishes. Additionally, the fruit has a rich amount of vitamin C, which helps the scars and marks to fade away. Cranberries also contain high amount of antioxidants and astringent properties, which assist in removing pigmentation on your skin. They boost collagen production which helps to carry the oxygen and nutrients to the skin that makes our skin soft, glowing and firm.

For a gentle grain in our scrub we have used ground almond shells, making an excellent natural exfolient. The beautiful tan powder provides a medium abrasion perfect as a facial and body scrub.

The dry ingredients are blended with Crystal OPC Foaming Bath Butter Melt and Pour Soap Base, designed for whipping; it provides the perfect consistency to create a beautifully smooth and delicate scrub. It can also be used in foaming bath butters, a body soufflé and an endless variety of different scrubs. The three ingredients combined make a perfect, elegant Vegan scrub.

  1. Lovely recipe. Would I be able to add essential oils to this? Would it need a preservative? If not how long will this last?
    Thank you d

    1. Hello,

      Yes you can add essential oils, we would recommend 0.75% fragrance or essential oil for this product. The foaming bath butter contains a preservative so you won’t need to add one. It is a wonderful gentle scrub and a wonderful natural colour 🙂
