Pit scrub changes the way you treat your pits by detoxing your skin, so non-toxic deodorants are more effective. Essential oils like Peppermint, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, and Sweet Basil combined with organic sugar and exfoliating walnut shell work to slough away dead skin cells that harbor odor-causing bacteria.
Brighten Underarms. Exfoliation is a wonderful way to brighten and smooth rough and dry skin, increase circulation, and improve the overall health of the tissue.
Detox & Deodorize. Chemical deodorants can build up on your skin, clog your pores, and make your deodorant defenseless. Pit scrub removes the lingering product from your skin to help your deodorant work as you need it.
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. Its other prize ingredients are Shea Butter and Aloe Vera, which heal and nourish the skin leaving it baby soft and moisturized.
- Tea tree Essential Oil: The anti-inflammatory properties of tea tree oil soothes the skin and can also 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. It also has phytosterols that help to soothe itchiness and irritation while also giving protection to prevent trans-epidermal water loss.
Why We Love It: There are many scrubs on the market, but this scrub was designed specifically for your underarms. When switching to a natural deodorant, introducing an underarm scrub is a must to help the body detox from chemical-laden deodorants. Most scrubs have heavy oils, which leaves the skin oily, which isn’t the best for your underarms, especially your pores. This unique formulation is cream-based to lightly moisturize and slough off dead skin without the messy application or slip and falls that oil-based products are known to create.
How to use it: What were we doing before pit scrub? We ask ourselves this every time we’re able to use it after a wax to prevent ingrown hairs or when we can soften our heels or detox the skin in sweat-prone areas.
Things to Know: The tea tree oil in the scrub leaves a gentle tingle, so you know that it’s working to cancel the odor-causing bacteria that can make your pits smell unpleasant. Finding your natural deodorant match can feel like a real-life science experiment. Adding a scrub to your routine and using it every other day will help you get the best results as you make the switch.
What Makes It Green: The Healing Place Apothecary produces body products that are healthy and non-toxic, while rooted in holistic principals from Asia, Africa, and the Americas. They’re handmade locally in small batches to reduce the environmental footprint.
This product works like wonders. I love the smell is amazing. Also my armpits are less discolored. Definitely would buy it again.
