Extraordinary exfoliant: Chocolat Citrus Foaming Face Scrub

Glum and dull complexion? We have a miracle worker that instantly makes a noticeable difference in your skin. It’s our Chocolat Citrus Foaming Facial Scrub. It’s my go-to for bright, smooth, and luminous skin. 

A face exfoliant that is good enough to eat (technically yes, but don’t do it haha!); Chocolat Citrus Foaming Facial scrub is indeed bursting with a heavenly aroma, while also packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients.



Spotlight on some of its star ingredients:


  • Formulated with premium Cacao Essential Oil, an outstanding ingredient that aids on a topical/physical, spiritual, and emotional level. Those interested in Chakras will love it because cacao helps open the heart chakra. Thanks to its high antioxidant properties, Cacao boosts collagen production and protects the skin from environmental damage
  • Green Coffee Beans contain bioactive compounds like Polyphenols, Flavonoids, and Chlorogenic acid, which act as powerful antioxidants. They protect cells and molecules from damage, have natural skin-lightening properties, help remove dead skin cells, combat free radicals, and improve blood circulation. Also rich in vitamins, enzymes, and minerals, thus making green coffee beans an excellent vibrant-aging agent.
  • Tamanu oil is another key component, low comedogenic, and suitable for all skin types. Topically, it is bursting with anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. If that was not enough already, it is also soothing, and moisturizing, and can contribute to repairing the skin barrier function and promoting cell turnover.
  • Pumpkin seed oil (Cucurbita pepo. L). An oil that remains under the radar in the West, and yet it is extraordinary. It has been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese healing traditions for ages. Topically, it has been proven in certain studies to alleviate a specific type of contact dermatitis*. Can help to treat wounds, burns, acne, and dermatitis due to its high antibacterial and antioxidant activity. It increases collagen synthesis and may provide adequate photoprotection. This is why our scrub is a phenomenal product to keep and use all year long. It will provide appropriate benefits according to each different season!


The blend of pure, organic essential oils used created the most divinely invigorating aroma, and whilst the product gently exfoliates and removes dead skin cells, breathing in its scent will act as a pick-me-up for the mood. This is the type of multitasking that we, at Vered Organic Botanicals, can stand behind.

In terms of aroma, we’d describe it as tangy, zesty, and sexy :)

Here are 3 of the EOs we used to formulate the blend.

  • Ylang ylang : an intoxicating floral scent, warm, voluptuous, exotic and potent.
  • litsea cubeba : fresh, light, and citrusy, with warm notes of lemongrass. 
  • Pink Grapefruit : tangy and popping, with a touch of freshness.

In addition to the aromatherapeutic benefit, both pink grapefruit and litsea cubeba have skin properties. Both contain natural vitamin C to soften dark eye circles, fine lines, and spots, as well as astringent and antiseptic benefits.

Full INCI: Raw cane sugar*, simmondsia chinesis (jojoba) oil*, cucurbita pepo (pumpkin) oil*,prunus amygdalus var. dulcia (sweet almond) oil* calophyllum inophyllum seed (tamanu) oil* Green coffee Arabica (coffee) beans* , castile soap* a blend of 100% pure organic essential oils: cymbopogon citrates (lemongrass)oil*, Cananga odorata (ylang ylang) oil**, litsea cubeba (may chang) fruit* Citrus paradisi (pink grapefruit) peel* Cedrus atlantica (Cedarwood Atlas)wood* citrus reticulata(tangerine) peel* theobroma cacao (cacao absolute) ** tocopheryl acetate (non GMO vitamin E) oil*.


How to use it?

Using a clean, dry utensil, place 1 teaspoon of the scrub in the palm of your hand. Add a small amount of pure water and blend until you have achieved a low-matte foam, apply on damp skin and gently massage in with circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Rinse well with warm water and pat the skin dry. Unlike what you sometimes see on TikTok or Instagram, do not double dip or allow water to come into contact with the product in your jar. This allows to keep the product’s stability and integrity. As an experienced facialist, I know how crucial hygienic practices are to guarantee healthy skin.

Use 1-2 times a week for fresh, vibrant skin.
