Today in this post i.e Biocare Sandalwood Body Scrub Review,Price I am going to share my experience with this new body exfoliator. I have used Biocare Mango Scrub from this range before. I never knew that with my video on Biocare Garlic Hair Mask video, I will brew up so much curiosity in viewers. I received so many messages on queries about the brand,products,availability and then whole lot of suppliers and retailers of Biocare sharing their contact address for consumers. I got so much information on the brand from my viewers all over the world. Enlightening was the awareness on high paraben content of the products.
I have tried Body Scrubs from different brands available in India but Biocare managed to make a comeback on my beauty shelf despite all odds for its skin improving properties. I will not deny the paraben content of formula but I use just one jar in one year,once in week predominantly in winters to limit the skin contact with chemical as much as possible.
I will like to mention here that parabens are added to cosmetics to increase the shelf life of the product. They resist the growth of fungus and bacteria which can be really harmful on skin. According to some yet to conclude research, continuos use of paraben pose the risk of Breast cancer in women. Especially paraben content of the product used on breasts and under arm areas matters. However,there is no firm evidence yet against these chemicals. The way formaldehyde was phased out by parabens as preservative, we will have effective safer alternative for parabens too.
There is no alternative to parabens as of now. Choosing a paraben free product,we put our skin under microbiological threat.But with all this,it is important for me to mention here that Parabens tend to penetrate in skin, enters blood circulation and gets metabolized in body. So definitely , they are making contact with your body cells but in harmful way or not is yet to be deciphered.
Biocare Sandalwood Body Scrub Review
Biocare Sandalwood Scrub is creamy,beige colored exfoliating paste which has small apricot and walnut granules dispersed throughout the preparation. This sandalwood exfoliant is housed in a big, transparent plastic jar with a twist open lid. The paper label on the jar is pretty much descriptive revealing contents,how to use and mechanics of the product. Wide Open mouth of the tub makes it easier to scoop out the product. I can see across the see through jar , amount of the product left behind. Fresh bought jar has filed seal beneath the lid. I tear the seal from one side and preserve it for future use. This minimize the product contact with air and increase the shelf life.Packaging is functional, no fancy and easy to use.
Biocare paste is homogenous paste of cream base and exfoliating granules derived from apricot/walnut. The exfoliating granules are uniform in size, well rounded and feel soft while buffing the skin.It has scent of sandalwood which does not sustain on my body after bath but lingers on in my shower after use. Formula is easy to spread on both wet and dry skin given to its creamy texture.
How I use it?
It can be used as both wet and dry exfoliating. But I love to use it as Dry Exfoliant. For that,apply the product on dry skin surface,let it dry for a minute or two. Then I buff it off my skin,massaging it off in gentle circular motions.There is some creamy base left on skin after this which i rinse out with water.
Massaging not only exfoliates but also improve the microcirculation of body parts. It increases the blood flow to superficial skin cells and revitalize them. On scrubbing, It reveals younger , silky soft layers of skin. Oily skin girls may not need a body moisturizer after this but I have to apply my light weight body lotion-Victoria’s secret Fabulous.
Biocare Sandalwood Scrub is pocket friendly,decent quality scrub which is enriched with turmeric extracts. Turmeric is known for its skin brightening properties. I have seen most of the grocery stores stocking Biocare products in Chandigarh tricity. There are plenty of options online also. I have never and will not use this body scrub on my face.I will not recommend to use it as face scrub especially for oily skin.It is cream based scrub which moisturize skin but is not greasy and rinse out easily. My skin looks fresh,radiant and young. The soft scent of sandalwood extract is awakening and refreshing.It has parabens.I wish Biocare to be more active in providing substantial information on brand.
PS: I have brought up this here to answer your queries on my take on paraben content of the product. I am not sponsored by Biocare to share this piece of information. Please choose your skincare on your discretion and consider this post as an information capsule from your Doctor blogger.
