Why Zoe Provisions uses cane sugar instead of white sugar?
Firstly, cane sugar is healthier than white sugar because it is closer to the actual plant. This means that it took less steps from the sugar cane to what is in your spoon than white sugar. Secondly, cane sugar has more nutrient dense properties in each sugar crystal than white sugar. Thirdly, brown sugar is not cane sugar; it is a mixture of white sugar with molasses, a deep brown syrup. Fourthly, white, conventional, granulated or table sugar goes through a process of melting down cane sugar twice which takes away the minerals and brown shade. Later the mass is re-crystalized thus making sucrose and increasing the levels of sulfur dioxide which is not good for the body in high levels. Another name for white sugar would be double crystalized sugar. Fifthly, the sugar cane plant, it is crushed to release the cane sugar juices then cleaned with steam with the use of a centrifuge. Cane sugar is made by a single crystallization process.
The beautiful and rich cane sugar is Zoe Provisions’ choice for superior exfoliation. Zoe Provisions Exfoliation System is to exfoliate your skin two times a week with our Zoe Trio Exfoliation System of Cane Sugar Scrub, Sea Salt Scrub and Microdermabrasion Scrub offered in all our five Zoe Skincare Lines of Hayat, Liv, Vida, Vita and Zivot. Using Zoe Provisions’ novel concept of three different crystal sized exfoliators, we recommend beginning with the largest crystal scrub of cane sugar exfoliator first and work your way down to the finest polish of our microdermabrasion exfoliator. This will gently peel off layers of dead skin and leave the new skin radiant, glowing, and ultra-polished. When caring on your skin, the focus is on using both gentle speed and gentle pressure in circular motions.
Our Zoe Cane Sugar Exfoliator uses the power of nature in the cane sugar crystals, avocado oil, and essential oils. The granular crystals of the cane sugar provide a gentle exfoliant and the process of exfoliationincreases blood circulation. Cane sugar is also a natural humectant which means it offers some hydration to the skin. Additionally, cane sugar has naturally occurring glycolic acid and alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). Glycolic acid assist with skin dryness, aging, and sun-damage. Alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) impulses the skin to regenerate quicker, called cell turnover, which improves the appearance of the skin.

Reminder: Use a spoon to scoop out a small amount of your Zoe Exfoliators so bacteria does not enter the container, therefore, avoid the use of your fingers. During your twice a week Zoe Trio Exfoliation System make sure you do not wash with your Zoe Goat’s Milk Soap Bar right before your exfoliation process because instead of being a three-step exfoliation, it would have turned into a four-step exfoliation. This is too much exfoliation for one time and your face would be left very tender, therefore, it is not recommended for Zoe Seekers to do. However, our Zoe Goat’s Milk Soap Bar is fabulous for daily cleansing of the skin from your face and body.
Although Zoe Provisions does not make any products to consume, we find it very helpful to educate our Zoe Seekers so they can take Zoe or life to every area of life. The sweetness found in sugary products are alarming because they are found in many food products and in high levels. Sugar levels are dramatically higher now than some years ago. “Refined white sugar is a prominent cause of deteriorating human health. Do you know, 1 teaspoon of white sugar can reduce your immunity by over fifty percent for the next five hours? Excess sugar intake gives rise to acidity, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart diseases. It can also cause brain attacks and paralysis in extreme cases.” (www.ayurvedum.com/white-sugar-is-white-poison/). This is alarming because we can easily become immune to rising sugar levels. A study done some years ago that studied the effect of sugar on the brain showed the same area of the brain light up like that of a person who took cocaine. The study concluded that sugar sent addictive signals to the brain just as cocaine addiction did. This was truly impacting because it is easy to get our taste buds used to sugar, therefore, when natural fruit no longer gives our tongue a sweet sensation, beware.
