What is sugar cane?
Sugar cane is a plant that is a growing member of the grass family. It is native to the warm tropical regions of South Asia and Melanesia. Sugar cane was called by ancient cultures as "reeds that produce honey without bees." Sugar was first extracted from sugar cane in India around 400 BCE.
Why sugar cane for your skin?
Its small particles make an excellent exfoliate. The granules are smaller than salt (which can tear the skin) and sugar is very hydrating to the skin. Sugar contains glycolic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) which removes dead skin, dirt, and oil that clogs p
ores. Since your skin (epidermis) is the largest organ of your body, you want to protect it and help your body shed the dead skin.
