Once again, Courtney has saved my life with her products. After a one-on-one consult with her about some of my issues, and how they've evolved over the years, she advised me with what kind of herbs to add to Georgia Sweet. Meanwhile, I've tried several of the cleansers before and Courtney worked relentlessly with me to find the right one. For me, using Georgia Sweet sparingly along with a heavier use of my oil cleanser has been the perfect combo for me, and I'm so grateful for it.

Benefits of Each Ingredient
Oats (Organic Gluten Free): Oats have been used for skin maladies since 2000 bc. They should not be forgotten as one of the original skin remedies. Oats contain sopanins which attach to impurities and gently remove excess oil from the skin with absolutely no drying or tightening of the skin. Colloidal oatmeal was recognized by the FDA as a skin protectant in 2003. It is one of the few herbs recognized in the United States for its natural properties. Oats 6 major components that are recognized as scientifically beneficial for skin. Avenanthramides (anti-itch, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-irritant), avenacins (sopanin and anti-fungal), flavanoids (anti-bacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory), phenolics (antioxidant), Beta-Glucan (sought after skin ingredient now because it is highly penetrative and has shown to have more ling term hydration protection than hyaluronic acid, speeds healing), lipids (work to protect the skin, antioxidant), and peptides.
Oats provide all those benefits and otherwise expensive components in one beautiful place.
Sucanat- Naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acids? Yes, please! This is the only true "sugar in the raw" that actually exists. Sucanat is fresh pressed and dried cane juice without undergoing any removal of vitamins or minerals. Sugar is an easy source of alpha-hydroxy acids where other companies want to isolate and charge an arm and leg for them, I found them in their rawest form with the inclusion of nutritive vitamins and minerals.
Alpha-hydroxy acids- (as found in sucanat) are well-known to speed up cell regeneration and improve the smoothness and brightness of skin. Glycolic acid is the main alpha-hydroxy in sugar cane and this is the smallest of the acids and works to gently break the bond between old skin cells so they can slough away without irritation or rough scrubbing. Glycolic acid also increases the moisture level in the skin cells keeping them plump and healthy.
Yucca Root Powder- also known as "soap root." This is a wonderful natural cleanser and lathers slightly on it's own. Not only does it cleanse, it also contains a wealth of nutrition for the skin: calcium, potassium, Vitamins A, B and C, iron, copper, manganese, and phosphorus.
Cape Aloe Vera- Cape Aloe is the world's most active aloe vera with twice as many healing monosacharides and up to 3 times the amino acid content of typical aloe vera. Cape Aloe is such a wonderful skin treatment
