The Summer House Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub - Late Summer Herbs, Tomato Leaf, Squash Vine... Limited Edition
The Summer House Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub
An herby green jumble of lemon verbena, mint, artemisia, tomato leaf & squash vines
Just behind the tall farmhouse that was my childhood home perched our summer house, a tiny white cottage that bordered the rambling vegetable garden & Mum's herb plot. It was meant to be used in the warmer weather, for cooking & canning & other hot, messy projects, but it was my playhouse more often than not. I'd sit on the doorstep in the late summer sun, dandling barn kittens & making witchy infusions of faded flowers & warm water... The Summer House is the smell of our late-summer garden, overrun with tomato plants & zucchini vines & herb plants gone to flower. This scrub makes a lovely kitchen sink companion to clean post-gardening hands, but it can be used all over...
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 :)
This listing is for a generous 11 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), Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sorbitol, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Sodium Chloride (Salt), Fragrance Oil, Phenoxyethanol & Tetrasodium EDTA (paraben-free preservatives), Green Chromium Oxide, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil)
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 :)
Unusual, delicate and earthy balance for summer

This scrub, like all Paintbox soapworks scrubs, is pure magic. fine and filled with conditioning oils (not greasy and scratchy). I love the scent which pairs nicely with Gardensong. Herbal and earthy without being overwhelming.
