This scrub its absorbed into the skin and in a climate like Arizona provides the moisturizing that needs to take place for people in their 70’s or later. The smell is wonderful. I put this on my wife with a loofa glove. It helps her with circulation of blood and the renewal of vital elements are leached out during extremely hot days. Rain provides the very best in natural scrubs and moisturizers in all their products. Its a very underrated company.
