Aura Cacia Previews Upcoming Body Care Innovation

NORWAY, IOWA (March 15, 2005) Aura Cacia is previewing its new skin-nourishing Body Polishes at Natural Foods Expo West, March 17 - 20, giving attendees an early look at this unique new product designed to provide users with a luxurious at-home spa experience. This novel aromatherapy body scrub uses organic raw cane sugar--ratsher than potentially irritating salt granules--for its exfoliating power.

"Body Polishes are a total skin treatment," says Mindy Seiffert, Aura Cacia Category Manager. Rinsing off the Body Polishes washes away the sugar, but the rich, nourishing base of healthful oils and Vitamin E is absorbed by the skin, leaving it exfoliated, supple, glowing and smooth."

Another unique feature of the Body Polishes, says Seiffert, is its thick, velvety consistency, which doesn't separate and allows easy application. "The sugar remains suspended," she explains, "in a lush, non-drip cream that goes on neatly." The nutrient-rich base includes coconut oil, jojoba oil and shea butter.

The Body Polishes are offered in Aura Cacia's signature blends of 100% pure essential oils ( Lavender, Tan gerine/Grapefruit, Cinnamon/Ylang Ylang, Ginger/Mint and Patchouli/Sweet Orange) for true aromatherapy benefits for the body, mind and spirit. There is also an Unscented Body Polish for those who want to personalize the experience with their own essential oil combinations.

The Body Polishes come in an eight-ounce, wide-mouth plastic jar, with an SRP of $10.99. They will be available May 15.
