Demeter, Forsaken Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub - 2.5-ounce SAMPLE SIZE!
Sheaves of golden hay, honeyed chrysanthemums, & fading sunflowers haunted by a haze of brimstone & hellfire
I have always adored the myth of Persephone, but as I get older, I find myself more drawn to her mother, Demeter, goddess of the harvest & agriculture. Specifically, I've been thinking about that heart rending moment when we, as parents, have to let our children manage their own lives. I have a pet reinterpretation that Persephone realizes that she's been sold to Hades by her father Zeus, & eats the pomegranate on purpose, becoming queen of the underworld & making Hades life figurative as well as literal hell. Demeter is horrified at Persephone's situation & desperately wants to fix it all for her, but knows in her heart of hearts that Persephone has it covered & can deal with things on her own terms. So, each autumn, she takes Persephone to the gates of the underworld, tells her to write if she needs anything (knowing that she won't), & watches as her daughter steps from the light into the dark for another season.
Demeter, Forsaken is the scent of the shining fields as Demeter slowly drives her chariot home, heart aching & wreathed with autumn flowers, trailing a sulphurous wisp of hellfire.
Sorbetto is a delightfully malleable, scoopable sugar scrub fortified with nourishing rice bran, avocado & grape seed oils & luxurious mango butter. Massaged into wet skin, it emulsifies into a light, creamy lotion that gently cleanses, polishes & moisturizes, leaving you feeling deliciously soft & smelling wonderful :) Now you can take your favorite Paintbox Sorbettos on the go in handy 2.5-ounce sample sizes, perfect for pockets, purses & carryons! They also make excellent any-day gifts & stocking stuffers.
This listing is for a handy 2.5 ounces of emulsifying sugar scrub, blended by hand in small batches with no SLS/SLES, parabens, propylene glycol, -cones, animal products, coconut oil or shea butter (for my sensitive customers). Most of my fragrances are phthalate-free, too! I don't whip my scrubs, so you get a jar packed with product, not air. I pack Sorbetto in a recyclable plastic jar, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Sucrose (Sugar), Glycerin, Aqua (Water), Sorbitol, Sodium Cocoyl/Lauroyl Isethionate, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Persea Americana (Avocado) Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Fragrance Oil, Sodium Chloride (Salt), Levulinic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Mica, Iron Oxide
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from jar to jar. To prolong the life of your Sorbetto, keep it tightly sealed & avoid introducing excess water to the jar. A clean plastic spoon is ideal for scooping out just the right amount :) Please use Sorbetto within 3 months of opening, & discontinue use if irritation occurs. I specifically blend Sorbetto not leave a greasy film, but it may leave your tub a bit slippery, so do be careful :)
