Lush | How It’s Made: The Rough With The Smooth Body Scrub

Rough, dry skin will be a distant memory after scrubbing with our sweet and spicy The Rough With The Smooth Body Scrub. Aura from our manufacturing team is here with all the deets on how we make this magnificent scrub. We begin with luxuriously moisturizing murumuru and cocoa butters, and once they’ve melted, we add healing castor oil. Cosmetic-grade pigments give this scrub its signature pink-red color, and its popular perfume is made with a blend of patchouli, black pepper and vanilla. Next, we add in sodium bicarbonate and cream of tartar to leave your body beautifully soft, before adding loads of granulated sugar to scrub away any dry bits for smooth skin. The finished mixture gets hand-pressed into molds, and after setting overnight, these naked, self-preserving scrubs are ready to hit our shelves.
