SUGAR = Healing?

30 Apr

I love when I find out why customers are using the products they do. I have one customer we’ll call her Blair (since I don’t want to reveal her real name.) Blair has been buying my Sweet LOVE scrub forever. She’s always bragging about it…

Saying,

“Pam, you don’t understand how good it is. There is something about your scrub”

Who knew…? So one day I asked Blair why the Sugar Scrub and not the Dead Sea Salt Scrub….And she came back with Sugar is healing…

and I said “Really?”

She said “YES, and there was a study done using sugar to heal wounds”

See now that intrigued me. So I started Looking online and sure enough there have been studies saying that sugar indeed helped to heal wounds.

Basically, the gist of every article I’ve read is if you pack a wound with Sugar. The sugar will draw liquid from a wound. Bacteria need water to survive. So, no water no bacteria. Simple huh?

 Here are some links to check out… New York Times article here.  & Daily Mail UK article here.

All I can say is I think that’s amazing!
