Salicylic acid and bamboo powder packs a punch in this dermatologist-tested, blackhead scrub. This face scrub unclogs pores and calms redness for bump-free skin.
St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Face Scrub helps unclog pores and clear blackheads. A derma‐tested, blackhead‐tackling scrub made with salicylic acid. It moderately exfoliates, helping to clear blackheads, and unclog pores, for a more even skin tone. It’s also infused with olive leaf extract which the Egyptians saw as a symbol of heavenly power. And who’d argue with that? Our green tea leaves come from China and are processed in the traditional Chinese way. This involves heating them to stop oxidation so they stay that lovely vibrant green color. The goodness is then extracted by very gently by soaking them. It takes a little longer but we think it’s worth it. Natural Ingredients Green Tea Extract Olive Leaf Extract Hydrated Silica Tell me more! This refreshing scrub is oil free, paraben free, dermatologist tested, and non-comedogenic (meaning won’t clog pores), and has a moderate exfoliation level. It also contains 1% salicylic acid acne medication.

WALNUT SHELL POWDER
Crushed walnut shell powder is the gentle-yet-effective secret behind many of our scrubs. We take pride in ensuring the walnut shell powder in our scrubs is finely milled and polished so that each particle has a smooth surface. This ensures our scrubs only provide exfoliation to the outer layers of dead skin cells and do not damage your skin.
Did you know green tea has tons of skin benefits? Ours are from China, where we process them the very, very old-fashioned way. They say anything worth doing takes time — it’s why we use the same methods that have been used throughout the last couple millennia!
