SCOBY Conditioning Skin Pre-Wash
SCOBY Conditioning Skin Pre-Wash . . .
SCOBY referred to as "the mother" or "mushroom" stands for Symbotic Colony of Bacteria + Yeast. It's this live culture that turns sweet tea into kombucha, the fermented + beneficial elixir.
At J. Lexi I focus on uncommon beauty using fermentation + real foods . . . So, this SCOBY Pre-Wash fits right into my mission!
Many kombucha home-brewers have used the raw SCOBY as a facial mask, so massaging it into the rest of your skin shouldn't be a big deal, right? This 100% SCOBY + kombucha vinegar pre-wash will have you achieve healthy + beautiful skin.
Benefits of the SCOBY for the skin:
4.5 pH of the culture has the effect of a mild + all-natural acid peel by removing dead skin cells and leaving the skin feeling soft + smooth.
can be used on face + body.
mildly exfoliates + detoxifies.
helps pulls circulation to the surface of the skin which helps regenerate skin cells.
is a natural skin-toning + conditioning agent.
the beneficial bacteria + yeast can help minimize skin irritations and fight acne-causing bacteria.
Fun Fact: Yeast extract contains some of our largest organ’s favorite things, like amino acids, proteins, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins, like B, it has a cellular structure very similar to human cells. When applied topically, it’s super hydrating, anti-aging, collagen-producing, + brightening.

Directions: Massage SCOBY Conditioning Skin Pre-Wash into dry skin in a circular motion towards the heart (from the feet to mid-torso, then from the neck to mid-torso). Continue to massage until it penetrates into the layers of the skin + disappears. If possible allow it to rest on skin for a few minutes then wash as usual. Air dry + apply one of our body oils or butters to seal in hydration. The Pre-Wash can be used by it's self without applying soap . . . just apply, let it sit, then rinse thoroughly.
When bathing I stand in the tub + apply the Pre-Wash to my feet + up my legs before running the water. I continue to massage until it has dissolved into my skin then I lower myself into the tub to allow the SCOBY to continue to do it's thing during my bath. I then rinse with 5 pH Ionized Acid Water, apply a J. Lexi butter or oil to my damp skin + air dry.
When massaging the Pre-Wash into your skin, you may see dirt begin to roll away.
Keep away from hairy parts . . . cause it will get tangled + will be really hard to remove.
Patch testing for allergies + sensitivities is recommended.
