Everyone knows that fruits and veggies do a body good... but how about your skin?
Well, if you partake in The Body Deli's philosophy - "whatever is applied to your skin is absorbed into the bloodstream" - then yes, fresh fruits and veggies are great for your skin too!
The Body Deli believes that "living plants contain the vital energy and nutrients that rejuvenates the skin and body. Their products are not only natural, but they are “living" as well." They compare it to fresh foods versus canned goods. As they so aptly put it, "Canned foods can sustain your body, but not in the same wholesome way that fresh, chemical free fruits and vegetables do." I like to think of it as putting your skin on a "raw" diet. And so far, the outcome is awesome.
I recently had the pleasure of trying the Blueberry Fusion Facial Polish. Not only does it smell like a berry sorbet, it looks like one too. Literally, it's good enough to eat. And, apparently, you could eat it (if you were super hungry and a little weird) because all of the ingredients are fresh, natural and/ or organic. The jar even has an expiration date because, like real food, the ingredients in this exfoliator will rot. Gross? Not at all - it just means that there aren't any of those nasty additives and chemicals to keep the thing fresh long after it's meant to be.
A word (or several...) from the company:
"Research has shown that in the absence of chemical preservative systems, plant derived vitamins, minerals, enzymes and nutrients only hold their potency anywhere from 3 to 12 months from the moment of harvest. Therefore, we have developed our production around the idea that making product in small batches is the best way to control quality, freshness and the vitality of our products. "
Now onto how it works - AMAZING! It rubs and scrubs removing all of the dirt and grime without being harsh or aggravating to the skin. Just a dollop of the blueberry fusion, applied gently in circular motions, and, voila! - The result: skin that is soft, smooth and radiant. With a fresh organic blueberry puree (high in antioxidants), fruit acids and Bio-active Fresh Cells, this exfoliator not only delivers in giving you a gorgeous complexion, it also feeds your skin!
This takes organic to an entirely new level... raising the bar!
Healthy skin = Happy skin!
