$ 18.00
Regular price $ 18.00

Pit scrub uses essential oils of Peppermint, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus and Sweet Basil in combination with hydrating organic sugar and exfoliating walnut shell to slough away dead skin cells that harbor odor-causing bacteria.

Brighten Underarms. Exfoliation is a wonderful way to brighten and smoothe rough and dry skin, increase circulation and improve the overall health of the tissue. 

A powerful ally to prevent razor bumps, ingrown hairs and hyper-pigmentation from shaving, waxing and sugaring this scrub offers a unique home care solution.  Shea Butter and Aloe Vera heal and nourish the skin leaving it baby soft and moisturized. The scrub leaves a gentle tingle so you know that it’s working.

Key Ingredients: 

Tea tree Essential Oil: The anti-inflammatory properties of tea tree oil soothes the skin and can also help heal infections that cause itchy skin.  

Aloe Vera: has bioactive compounds in the plant that are rich in vitamins A, B , C, D and E as well as minerals like magnesium, potassium and zinc. These are all thought to aid in the 'healing' benefits of aloe Aloe also has phytosterols which help to soothe itchiness and irritation while also giving protection to prevent trans-epidermal water loss. 

Why We Love It: There are a lot of scrubs on the market, but this scrub was designed specifically for your underarms. When making the switch to a natural deodorant, a scrub is a must to help the body detox from your chemical-laddedn deodorants. Most scrubs have heavy oils, which leaves the skin oily, which isn't the best for your underarms. This special formulation is cream based to lightly moisturize and sloth off dead skin without the messy cleanup or danger of a slip and fall from oily scrubs.

Ingredients: Organic sugar, walnut shell, shea butter, aloe vera, tea tree essential oil, peppermint essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil, and sweet basil essential oil

Ingredients: Organic sugar, walnut shell, shea butter, aloe vera, tea tree, peppermint, eucalyptus, and sweet basil.

2. Deodorize: In a circular motion, massage Pit Scrub into the armpits or feet (or other body parts) with fingertips for 15-20 seconds. Rinse and follow up with our natural Deodorant Balm for total freshness.

Absolutely Love

Absolutely love the smell and the consistency of this product, not super grainy and not super abrasive! Most of the scrubs I've bought in the past leave an oily residue on the floor of my shower which makes it more slippery and a bit dangerous, not to mention more work to clean, but I'm happy to say that I use this scrub every time I shower and I've yet to have that oily experience! I received my order in mid march, about a month later and I'm about 2/3 finished with the container, I primarily use it on my pits but I've enjoyed using it on my legs and the rest of my body too. Highly recommend for someone who's looking to change things up from bar soap or other scrubs. I have very full and healthy pit hair and this works well with it!

One time purchase for now

The product is awesome, but it’s not a need item. I love the way this product smells and I love how my pits were left soft, fresh, and hydrated. Because I’m on a budget, I’m cutting this product for now. If this is a need item in your life, it’s worth the price.

Love it! Used it on my body

Usually when I get a scrub it leaves a layer of oil in my bathtub, causing me to slip and slide around. Then I have to clean the bathtub every time I use it. NOT THIS SCRUB. I used it on my legs at first and it left my legs feeling so smooth and soft, so I used it on the rest of my body and I love it. I also use it as part of my regimen to remove and heal winter dry skin.

Pit Scrub —who knew I needed it?

It’s got a lovely consistency—not too oily and not too abrasive. A perfect compliment to natural deodorants. It smells nice, too.

Great for transitioning to natural deodorant!

I had a hard time transitioning to natural deodorants. This product really helped me to detox my underarms, and it controlled my ingrown hairs.
