Trillium Organics Moisturizing Skin Cleanser Fresh Lime Organic Body Polish Crisp & Cooling- 16 oz. (472ml)
Trillium Organics Organic Body Polish Fresh Lime Crisp and Cooling was the first Salt Scrub formulated for home use. Originally a spa treatment, offered only in luxury spas, Organic Body Polish liberates us from the damaging cycle of soap and lotion. Exfoliate, Moisturize and Protect with Trillium Organics Organic Body Polish. Organic Body Polish is an alternative system of Whole Body Skin Care that is the perfect, one step skin maintenance system. Known in the Spa world as a Salt Glow, or in the beauty world as a Salt Scrub, Trillium's Organic Body Polish is so much more. It moisturizes more than a lotion, cleanses more profoundly than any soap, and promotes healthy skin in balance with nature, and in balance with the body it protects.
Soap, or anything that bubbles, isolates and removes molecules of oil from the skin. Conventional wisdom would have us replace that oil with lotion. The trouble with that approach is that all lotions are preserved with something, the only two real options are parabens or alcohol. Parabens are bio-accumulative toxins implicated in the formation of breast cancer and alcohol ultimately dries the skin. Non-GMO Soy lipids lock in the hydration and moisture for days. You are left with exquisitely smooth, silky soft skin.

Natural VITAMIN E OIL (Tocopherol) - The word "vitamin E" is generally not listed on body care labels, since international cosmetic labeling prohibits the use of the word "vitamin" on the label. Instead, vitamin E is listed as “tocopherol.” It is a valuable addition to skin care, as an anti-inflammatory that prevents premature aging and protects the skin from environmental pollution and UV radiation. It also has wound-healing properties* and acts as a permeation enhancer that facilitates the penetration of other compounds into the skin. Vitamin E is most notably an effective antioxidant, chemically mediated by the phenolic OH group of the chromane ring, and helps to remove the formed “free radicals” thereby reducing oxidative degradation by disrupting the chemical chain reaction caused by free radicals. Topical application of vitamin E is also effective in reducing wrinkles caused by photodamage. It further helps to prevent trans-epidermal water-loss by the skin, thus increasing the natural moisture content of the skin.
Organic SAFFLOWER OIL (Carthamus tinctorius seed oil) - High in linoleic acid content (80%), safflower oil has superior skin compatibility, is easily absorbed and soothes skin irritations/itchiness. It increases the moisture content of the skin and is particularly good for sensitive skin. Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid which plays a vital role in the health of the body, and is used to produce prostaglandins. Prostaglandins strengthen cell membranes, and when not enough is produced, it can cause skin to become dry and wrinkled.
Also available in the following scents: Cedar Sage, Clementine Clove, Sweet Clementine, Lavender Geranium, Pink Grapefruit and Fragrance Free.

What type of packaging do you use for your products?
At Trillium, they are constantly researching new forms of packaging, looking at the safety impact on products' users, and environmental responsibility. To date, PET has been their top choice. Glass is simply inappropriate for shower use, as it could break and shatter. PET is the most stable resin, least likely to contribute to the product contained inside. "The Green Guide" Green Plastics Guide. It is also the most commonly recycle-able plastic, coded #1. So your skin and the butter are ready at the same time!
