Chocolate Face Scrub
Featuring Quinoa & Cacao Nibs
This delicious face scrub is perfect for age spots & scarring.
Quinoa is packed full of Vitamin B which may help to reduce the dark melanin deposits that lead to age spots and other skin pigment-related conditions. According to a 2015 study, quinoa contains tyrosinase inhibitors, which are enzymes that decrease pigmentation therefore brightening the skin.
Cacao is another super skin ingredient. The high levels of antioxidants in cacao nibs protect and repair the skin from environmental damage and premature ageing.
