‘Clean’ brands tend to be younger and newer to market and thus don’t usually invest the large amount of funds needed to clinically trial products to prove results in an independent lab. Not us; we are firmly committed to do this as the clean, organic and natural sector has to prove it works. As we
grow the brand, we will grow the investment into clinical testing as a priority but below are our test results so far!
Dermatological testing This scrub along with all Proverb skincare has been successfully Dermatologically tested.
Lab proven results We have not clinically trialled the scrub as a full formula as it is a wash off product. Instead we chose superfood based ingredients with impressive nutritional profiles. This isn’t usually the case as most formulations leave out the good stuff in wash of products.
Omega 7 We chose Seabuckthorn due to its nutritional profile, not to mention the serious shade of orange. Containing over 190 nutrients and phytonutrients including vitamin C at a 12 x higher level than an orange. Hence, it’s new place as a superfood. Rich in carotenoids, phenols and glucoside, vitamin A, C, E and beta- carotene. The seed oil part comprises of unsaturated essential fatty acids including Linoleic and Linolenic acids, while the pulp oil unsaturated essential fatty acids, carotenoids and vitamin E. Exfoliants shouldn’t just be about sloughing off dead skin you should be using your time scrubbing to replenish and feed your new skin cells too.
