Masa and Olive Face Paste
Masa & Olive Face Paste, from the maker:
This scrub provides the perfect combination of exfoliating and moisturizing properties. The corn flour acts as a gentle polisher and stimulator. The olive oil dilutes the pre-existing oils on your skin (like dissolves like) which allows the pore clogging dirt and bacteria to surface and be cleaned away. When you rinse your skin, the olive oil won’t strip your skin of moisture.
To use, simply take about a half a' teaspoon of the scrub rub in your finger tips to spread and massage into your face. If you are in the shower, apply the scrub and leave on to let the steam open your pores. Then rinse off with water and towel pat your face dry. I’ve found I need less face cream to hydrate after my shower. In the summer, I don't even need a moisturizer.
This scrub will work with all skin types.
By the way, Fat and the Moon uses this stuff religiously...

About Fat and the Moon:
Continuing a family legacy of herbalists and natural healers, Fat and the Moon founder Rachel Budde has built her company around providing handcrafted, herbal body care products to those seeking a natural alternative to chemical-filled products. Like a witch over a cauldron, Budde experiments with age-old ingredients and recipes passed down from various healing traditions to craft innovatively simple products that are good for the body and the earth. Fat and the Moon started as an alternative to the toxic, mass production body care industry aiming to provide nourishing ingredients and nourishing messages of self love, and self care.
The ‘fat’ in Fat and the Moon comes from love of the material- oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. Fat, in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. In both plants and animals, fat is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of and pleasure in that vital energy. Oil from plants, in and of itself, is medicinal. Fat and the Moon bod care products are the result of indulgent play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon.
