Usually, oils are used, which also provide the skin with nourishment. Additional components of the scrub may include essential oils (for their endless list of benefits) and detanning agents like lemon juice. A gentle mixing of all ingredients is usually all that is required to make a sugar scrub. You obviously dont want the sugar to melt away.
