Dry Brush | Jute
The Jute fibers are soft, luxurious and perfect for those new to dry brushing. Also suitable for those with thin and sensitive skin, the jute bristles are gentle yet firm but just as effective as the popular Sisal brushes. As skin gets acclimatized, one may then opt for the more vigorous and stimulating Sisal Brush.
The GingerChi Meridian Body Dry Brushes incorporate the health benefits of dry brushing with the importance of maintaining the flow of Chi. The skin is an eliminative organ and a buildup of dead cells on the surface decreases its ability to effectively remove toxins. Dry brushing exfoliates dead skin cells but also stimulates lymph circulation, which is crucial to a healthy immune system. Dry skin brushing also assists with the break up of cellulite by helping to remove toxins built up in the tissues and stimulating meridians to revitalize Chi.
The GingerChi Dry Brush system is all handmade in Sri Lanka by a family owned business. The bristles made from sisal and jute is harvested from sustainable plantations from around the region where fibers are carefully selected and processed.
To use: Follow instructions included with brush for smoother, more toned skin and overall health and well-being. Long term Chi blockage causes stress on the body is often the root cause of disease.
Do not dry brush if skin has lesions, rash or is sunburned.
GingerChi is based in New York and they’ve just opened our first retail store. The owner, Anna Lam originally from Australia, has been in US since 1991.
