Research on the benefits of turmeric and curcumin have been conducted in two scenarios, when turmeric is digested and when applied topically.  Both methods have shown positive results in relation to skin health.

As an anti-inflammatory, turmeric can reduce redness, swelling and scaring, and help to treat conditions such as psoriasis.

As an antioxidant, turmeric can impact the skin cells and in turn tighten the appearance of skin, reversing sun damage and slowing the aging process. 

Turmeric is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial so can be used as a natural face cleanser.  When applied topically to the skin it will help to inhibit the growth of blemish causing bacteria and protect the skin against infection.

The curcumin in turmeric has been shown to lighten skin by inhibiting the pigment melanin. From this evidence, it would be fair to conclude that turmeric can therefore be used to treat dark circles, spots or uneven pigmentation.

Another less documented effect of turmeric on skin is the potential to slow the growth of unwanted facial hair with regular use, and even improving the appearance of stretch marks.

Plus it is a great philosophy to put on your skin what you are happy to eat, so turmeric definitely ticks the box there!

Danielle Charles reviewed Golden Grind — 5 star

"I have been using the Golden grind face scrub for my son who is severely disabled and has started going through puberty very early ( he is only 8 ) and ever since I have been using it on him I have noticed such a difference in his skin. He sweats a lot and produces a lot of oil on his face and it was always shiny and red. Since using the golden grind face scrub the shininess has gone and the redness has gone down. It’s helping with the amount of pimples he has on his face too. 
I would never go back to anything else. This has been the best thing I’ve found for my sons skin and I couldn’t be happier. Knowing he has sensitive skin also and this hasn’t caused any reactions is fantastic. I definitely will keep recommending this to other people"

This stuff is PURE gold..literally...leaves the skin rejuvenated and is very effective in reducing redness. Can’t speak highly enough of their products and the customer service. Thank you thank you!"

"I love Golden Grind because their Turmeric is the most incredible formulation. I have been using their Turmeric Face Scrub on my daughter's Pilaris Keratosis on the back of her arms. After reading about the wonderful applications of Turmeric as an anti-inflammatory & anti-bacterial super ingredient, I thought I would test it on her arms before using steroid cream (as she's only 1). Knowing that their products are both Vegan & natural was important to me as I only want to use the best things on my daughter. Anyway, to cut a long story short... It's been bloody working and her Pilaris Keratosis is disappearing before my eyes. The next step is to catch her long enough to use the Miracle Face Mask on her arms too. 
Also on a side note, since using their Face Scrub everyday I have been getting so many comments on my glowing skin. I will never go back to any other face product. I am here to stay. "

Thank you Golden Grind for creating something magical. ✨
