This exfoliating shower mitt is ideal to just use with soap. Handmade in England with ethically sourced cotton, this heavyweight shower glove works with your chosen soap. If you are looking for a natural exfoliator in the store, always look for ones that use natural ingredients made from ground nuts or fruits. Or if you want pure simplicity, just use an exfoliating mitt like this one, with standard vegan palm-oil free soap.

- Nuit (bergamot, ginger, palma rosa, sandalwood)
- Be (mandarin, cardamom, ylang ylang, cedarwood)
The labels are biodegradable and compostable. To remove, just soak off with warm water and add to your compost bin. Each sale benefits the Marine Conservation Society and Surfers Against Sewage, to help protect our oceans from plastic pollution.
