do Big Kahuna salt scrubs and lotions help heal splits and cracks?
In three powerful
ways. First, the scrub removes dry skin, gently smoothing away calluses
and rough spots. Second, it increases blood flow and circulation, which is
very nourishing to the skin. Third, each of the oils nourishes the
skin in its own way like a super-vitamin for the skin, giving your skin
the nutrients it needs to heal cracks and splits and to maintain a soft,
healthy rejuvenated skin.
There is also a wonderful synergy that
happens with the healing properties of the salt-oil combination. We have
found that the oils are not nearly as effective without the sea salts.
is it better than traditional lotions?
Most lotions use
mineral oil, a petroleum product that stays on top of your skin, so the
first time you wash your hands, it washes away, leaving your skin just as
dry as before. Our special blend of natural oils absorbs quickly into your
skin, nourishing your cells with moisture for hours afterwards, even after
you wash your hands.
won't salt dry out my skin more? And doesn't salt sting?
the combination of sea salts and natural oils has just the opposite effect
on skin. Far from drying skin, it will leave your skin softer and more
moisturized than ever. Even more surprising to some is the fact that the
salt scrub does not sting, but rather feels good on cracked and split
hands and feet. In any case, a slight sting would be a small price to pay
for the wonderful healing properties of mineral sea salts- as the many
people who pilgrimage to the Dead Sea or other mineral waters for healing
purposes can attest.
I use the scrub on my face? Is it only for hands?
Facial use is NOT
recommended, since salt is abrasive and will sting if it gets in your
eyes. However, for moisturizing and exfoliating there is nothing better
for your hands, feet, and body.
you use mineral oil or animal fats?
No, it is best to
stay away from mineral oil (petroleum based) such as "baby oil"
and oils that contain animal fat. These oils are not absorbed by the skin
and tend to form a greasy layer on the skin's surface that can cause
types of fragrances do you use?
With the exception of
mint, which is an essential oil, we use only the best cosmetic grade
fragrances, most of which are derived from natural bases.
is the shelf life?
months. Keep lid on and store out of direct sunlight. Refrigeration can
help extend life. We use only natural preservatives.

Eventually the Sea Salt absorbs all the oils. The oils are then
released by gently rubbing.
