Has anyone had experience adding a fruit or veggie powder to a wet scrub? I looked at the formulary at the Original Soap Dish & they list a mango powder scrubs w/ sugar, butter & oil. I am leary yet intruiged by the reconstituted fruits & veggies.

I have mango, strawberry and pumpkin powders. I haven't used them in a scrub yet but maybe I will try that this weekend. i will post results....I would be more concerned about mold and bacteria....I try not to use preservatives as much as possible...other than a little Vit E

This is my fear, however, I am a big preservative fan so I always include germabenII in my scrubs. I wonder if that would be enough????

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you Tabitha....I didn't see your post! :oops:

I actually use the powders in cp soaps....and a little in whipped shea. I still want to try it in scrubs but haven't gotten around to it yet. Have you tried it in anything yet?
