Powdered Cleansers are an ancient recipe used for thousands of years to scrub/exfoliate and polish the skin. The traditionally prepared scrubs in the form of fine powders are making a strong comeback as a safe, highly effective and environmentally friendly alternative to gel-based highly scented, microplastic added chemicals and preservatives scrubs that we often see in the market. The Pahari Life's scrubs with plant-derived ingredients can bring glow, luster, and smoothness, improves hyperpigmentation, and treat all skin types including dryness, acne – blackheads & of course strengthen the skin barrier. These are made of finely powdered herbs and nuts & seeds (natural body scrub) with no addition of any chemicals and preservatives.
Scrub Making Process - Different herbs, nuts & seeds are sourced directly from the farmers and are then sun/shade-dried depending upon the herb requirement to prevent bug invasion. Traditional tools like iron or wooden mortar and pestle are used to crush and grind and soften the hard roots and stems to make their powder. Though this is time & labour intensive but helps retain the nutrient value of the herbs. The hand crushed and grinded herbs are milled into fine powder with the help of a flour mill. We do not use whole herbs directly in the flour mill as this can heat the machine leading to loss of nutrients in herbs. The herb flour is fine powdered using the cotton cloth as sieve. This helps produce fine powder suitable for application on the skin. The different fine powders are then blended as per the formulation.
Loaded with a whole lot of skin loving nutrients The Pahari Life's Pomegranate Scrub is actually a powerhouse of an ingredient for your face. Due to its antioxidant properties, pomegranate works wonders for all things anti-ageing. It is rich in vitamin C, tannins, anthocyanins, and ellagic acid, all of which reverse free radical damage and protect your skin from further damage. Free radical damage from UV exposure and other environmental factors is the number one cause for ageing skin. Antioxidants reverse this damage and also create a protective barrier that prevents it from occurring further. It also boosts collagen and elastin production, leaving skin looking a lot firmer and youthful. One of the pomegranate benefits for skin is that it acts like an antimicrobial. This tackles and treats acne, combats future breakouts, reduces scarring, and soothes irritations. It also helps balance out your skin’s oil levels, and keeps it at check. Protecting your skin from sun damage, pomegranate helps prevent skin cancer, soothes sunburns, and prevents the sun from damaging your skin. Our Pomegranate Scrub acts like a natural exfoliator that helps get rid of your dead skin cells. This clears out the pathway and allows for other skincare products to penetrate more effectively into the skin. This leaves skin brighter and more radiant, and also keeps acne and other skin woes at bay. Pomegranate has the ability to penetrate into your skin and hydrate its various layers. It adapts to different skin types and can help soothe dry, cracked skin. The punicic acid and omega 5 fatty acid instantly hydrates the skin, locks-in the moisture, and prevents it from escaping.
