How Our Body Scrubs DON’T Hurt the Environment

June 11, 2020

How many products in your bathroom include microbeads or glitter? Hopefully the answer is NONE! But if they do, we are going to explain to you how our body scrubs are a better alternative for the environment. 

Let’s get started.

Did you know that the Great Lakes are currently full of up to 1.7 million plastic particles per square mile, according to Time Magazine?! That’s right, it turns out that those little beads, which so effectively exfoliate your skin, cannot be filtered out during sewage treatment. That means that they end up back in our lakes and oceans where fish and other sea creatures gobble them up. At FJ, we are not fans of this! (we at FJ don’t like that). We believe in lending a helping hand wherever we can, and since we love our animals so much, we want to make sure that we are not harming their habitats. 

What do we do to prevent this?

Our products are made with all natural ingredients that are good for your skin and are vegan, cruelty free and even gluten free!

With the re-launch of our fan favorite body scrubs, we’ve packed each newly designed jar with ingredients such as sugar, coconut oil, shea butter, mica and fragrance.

So, the answer is NO. We DO NOT use small plastics, glitter or micro-beads in ANY of our products.

What is Mica?

Mica is the mineral that gives many of our products’ their gorgeous shimmer. Mica has different effects when it is ground up into a fine powder or a more coarse powder- this gives off different types of colorful sparkles and allows us to shine bright without using a plastic glitter.

Why Sugar?

Sugar is a natural exfoliant that allows you to scrub away dead skin cells on the surface, which eliminates the need for harsh exfoliants like microbeads. Sugar, unlike salt, also locks in moisture into your skin.

Why Coconut Oil and Shea Butter?

This is the major ingredient that gives your skin a soft dewy glow! We have harnessed good-for-you ingredients that will help revive dull skin in just one bath (or shower).
