Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalate Free

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

Sulfate Free

Sulfates are synthetic chemical ingredients commonly used in beauty products and household cleaners, like shampoos and dish soaps. You can usually identify sulfates in an ingredients list by looking out for the most common types: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLC) and Sodium Laureth Sulfates (SLES). These chemicals, often derived from petroleum, are used to help form the “lather” we’re used to seeing in our beauty and cleaning products. When used in the shower or sink, these chemicals can flow through the pipes and into our waterways. Synthetic sulfates have been linked to allergic reactions, eye and skin irritation, and hair loss, and some studies suggest they contain carcinogenic ingredients.

Organic Content

Organic materials and ingredients are grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers, promoting a healthier use of land and decreasing harmful agricultural runoff. By steering clear of toxic chemicals, farm workers experience less exposure to hazardous conditions, promoting social responsibility as well as environmental stewardship. Choosing organic materials eliminates the use of insecticides and other harmful chemicals, promotes efficient resource use, and results in a safer products and a cleaner planet!

About the Company

Fat and the Moon

Ever taken a closer look at your personal care products and realized that the messaging on the bottle or jar is all about ‘fixing, taming, or eliminating’ a part of you? Fat and the Moon founder Rachel Budde noticed this harmful trend and set to work launching a brand that celebrated and empowered both people and the planet. Drawing from age-old herbal remedies and plant-powered ingredients, her collection of healing balms and beautifying concoctions elevate the entire self-care experience. Each product is handmade (with love!) and comprised of the highest-quality ingredients, all thoughtfully sourced and organically cultivated.

    Another great Fat and the Moon product

    Love this product! A pleasant earthy smell on application, add a little water and it goes on with much less mess. Afterwards my skin feels very clean and baby face smooth.
    It does need a little mixing first, which is a bit tricky the first few times of use as there’s not a lot of ‘room’ in the jar.
    Will definitely purchase again!

    Excellent Texture & Baby smooth skin

    Lydiagharris22 (verified owner)

    It only takes a pea size to cover your whole face; the texture is perfect for scrubbing away all the dead skin and it didn’t leave my skin feeling dry. I’ve used so many face scrubs and this one is my favorite. I will definitely repurchase!

    Great, But Messy

    lotrfinatic (verified owner)

    I have dry combination skin, and I was looking for an exfoliating face mask for my evening routine. I really LOVE the smell, and the overall consistency is great. The value and quality is worth the price, and it really does moisturize well.

    I personally don’t mind the separation ( they recently reformulated this per their website so you don’t have to mix prior to application), but you may want to ask if this particular jar is the reformulation or the older one. HINT: they both work exactly the same. 🙂

    The only reason this is getting 4 stars instead of 5 is it made a mess on my bathroom counter. I think I’ll try a different brand next time, but this one really isn’t bad at all. I’ll definitely still keep this in mind when shopping around, because it’s very competitively priced for other exfoliating masks.

    Great feel, great result!

    omancera (verified owner)

    I am absolutely wild for the ingredients, which make my skin feel so soft afterwards and give me a beautiful glow thanks to the olive oil. The application is really easy, yummy smell that reminds me of tamales, and easy storage too. It’s a good idea to have a tiny spoon set aside for its use to keep the batch clean. Great size for sharing or keeping to yourself for weekly spa nights. Will buy again when it runs out!

    Update, bought another 2 of these (June 2021) as they’ve made it into my daily face routine. It’s the perfect exfoliator that isn’t too harsh on my skin, smells great, and is an excellent moisturizer.

    Consistency was different than I expected, but my skin felt awesome after using it! Make sure to read the directions first as it is slightly different than a normal face scrub

    Definitely scrubby but did not leave my skin feeling scorched like some exfoliants. Skin felt soft, moisturized after use. The oil separates out so you do need to really mix it well, but it worked very well once I got it mixed.
