Creamy Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub

Announcing a NEW All over Body Scrub just in time for the warm weather---
CREAMY COCONUT LIME Your going to love it,  but don't take my word for it ready up on the benefits of Lime and then try it for yourselves.
Sample sizes are available for a limited time (2 oz = $6.00)  and 4 oz glass jars $12.00
Contact me at

LIME in Skin Care: Lime juice and its natural oils are very beneficial for skin when consumed orally or applied externally. It rejuvenates the skin, keeps it shining, protects it from infections and reduces body odor due to the presence of a large amount of vitamin-C and Flavonoids. Those are both class-1 anti oxidants, and have antibiotic and disinfectant properties. When applied externally on skin, its acids scrub out the dead cells, cures dandruff, rashes, and bruises. It can also be used to create a refreshing bathing experience if its juice or oil is mixed into your bathing water.

COCONUT oil is an excellent massage oil for the skin as well. It acts as an effective moisturizer on all types of skin, including dry skin. The benefit of coconut oil on the skin is comparable to that of mineral oil. Fortunately, unlike mineral oil, there is no chance of having any adverse side effects on the skin from the application of coconut oil. Coconut oil therefore is a safe solution for preventing dryness and flaking of skin. It also delays the appearance of wrinkles and sagging of skin which normally accompany aging. Coconut oil also helps in treating various skin problems including psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and other skin infections. For that exact reason, coconut oil forms the base ingredient of various body care products like soaps, lotions, and creams that are used for skin care. Coconut oil also helps in preventing premature aging and degenerative diseases due to its well-known antioxidant properties.

"The Dirty Dozen" a List of chemicals to avoid in your personal hygiene products.

Do you know what's in your skin care products?  Most likely a long list of chemicals.  

I tested a hand creme from Perfectly Posh.  It contained 23 ingredients in a 3 fl oz container, with water being top of the list. Which means it must have a strong preservative in it because water is a natural harbor for bacteria so a strong preservative would be necessary.  It also contained not 1 but 2 different PEG or I,4,Dioxane (PEG-100 Stearate and PEG-10 Soya Sterol).  Fragrance/Parfum  was the ninth item when really it should be the last item in any list since it has the potential to trigger allergens and asthma.  Sugar Me Sweet uses only pure essential oils, no fragrance. 

 Read the "The Dirty Dozen" list of chemicals below and compare them with the products in your home.


At least that's what the National Geographic Green Guide authors call the 12 chemical ingredients to avoid in cosmetics and other personal-care products.
  1.  Antibacterials: Overuse might be contributing to increasingly resistant bacteria, and they contaminate the environment. Triclosan is the agent used in many soaps.
  2.  Coal tar: Possible carcinogen in dandruff shampoos and anti-itch creams. Dyes with a coal tar base are used in toothpaste (FD&C Blue 1) and mouthwash (FD&C Green 3).
  3. -- DEA: Stands for diethanolamine and is used in shampoos to increase lather. Can affect hormones and cell functioning and development.
  4. -- 1,4-Dioxane: May show up as a contaminant in personal care items, including shampoo and body wash; in products that contain sodium laureth sulfate; and ingredients expressed as "PEG," "-xynol," "ceteareth," and "oleth."
  5. -- Formaldehyde: Found in such products as baby bath soap, nail polish and hair dyes as a contaminant or break-down product of diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, bronopol and quaternium compounds. Formaldehyde is a probable human carcinogen and can have other toxic effects.
  6. -- Fragrance and phthalates: The term "fragrance" can be hiding suspect substances called phthalates, which may affect hormones and cause reproductive and developmental harm.
  7. -- Lead and mercury: Lead can show up in products that have hydrated silica, such as in toothpaste. Mercury, found in the preservative thimerosal, is in some mascaras.
  8. -- Nanoparticles: Tiny particles of such things as zinc oxide and titanium oxide in cosmetics and sunscreens could cause cell damage, but they're tough to track. Some manufacturers now advertise products that are free of nanoparticle-size ingredients.
  9. -- Parabens: Common preservatives in toiletries, parabens grew controversial due to their weak estrogenic effects in some animals studies. Check for methyl-, ethyl-, propyl-, butyl- and isobutylparaben.
  10. -- Petroleum distillates: Check for the terms "petroleum" and "liquid paraffin" in such products as mascara and foot-odor powder. The European Union restricts or prohibits petroleum distillates as possible human carcinogens.
  11. -- PPD: P-Phenylenediamine can be found in hair dyes and may cause irritation and damage to the nervous system and lungs.
  12. -- Hydroquinone: Can be found in skin creams and under-eye treatments. Limited evidence links it to cancer in laboratory animals.Read more

Spray Paint vs Sugar Scrub for cleaning your skin

So it's pinewood derby season for the cub scouts and my son and husband are working hard at building and painting the car.  The other night my husband says "I need your sugar scrub this soap isn't cutting it"  I look down and his hand has blue paint on it, mostly his finger.
So I quickly gave him the first scrub I saw this time happened to be the Orange Brown sugar scrub.  the following pictures tell the rest of the story.

Sugar Scrubs aren't just for dry hands there for painted hands as well.

Welcoming 2014!

After a very busy craft fair season, I must admit, I was looking forward to the Christmas/New Years Break.  But now, I'm anxious to get back to My Craft creating new items and finding ways to grow the company.
 I got a jump start today from a new client who wanted to purchase Sugar Me Sweet all natural Sugar Scrubs as a donation to her Schools Silent Auction.  What a great feeling that was for me knowing that she choose my sugar scrubs as her gift to the school.   Introducing a whole new group of people to my company and products.  Hopefully that's a sign for bigger and better things as I head into my second year of business.
I look forward to hearing from more of my clients this year and expanding my line of products. So that's a challenge to you my readers. Let me hear from you write in to and let me know your ideas.
Thank You for your business!
