Honestly, I am not a big fan of their products. So far, I have purchased the products just because I wanted to try out something new. But undoubtedly, Mamaearth has quite a fan base. Many people adore their products.

Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub Ingredient Analysis

So, it would take a while to check out everything. Stay tight, grab a cup of coffee. Let’s try to know whether the brand has made a good formula or not.

1. Aqua

Water which is the base product for any liquid product e.g. face wash, shampoo, conditioner, etc.

2. Crosspolymer

I believe this is the crosspolymer of Silicone. It helps to increase the viscosity of a product.

3. Disodium EDTA

A moderately safe chelating agent that helps to deactivate the heavy metals present in a formulation.

4. Glycerin

One of the best naturally found humectant that retains moisture.

5. Glyceryl Stearate-SE

A safe lubricant that is used in cosmetics to make the skin appear soft and smooth.

6. Stearic Acid

It is a safe fatty acid that works both as a surfactant and also as an emulsifier.

7. Cetyl Alcohol

Safe fatty alcohol that helps to keep the oil and liquid components stay separated in the formula.

8. Isopropyl Myristate

Another safe component that works as a binder and also as a skin conditioning agent.

9. Shea Butter

One of the best naturally extracted butters that help to keep the skin smooth, soft, and nourished. It is rich in antioxidants.

10. Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate

Quite a big name, right? Well! It functions as a safe antioxidant.

11. Laureth-23

A moderately safe cleansing agent.

12. Vitamin E

One of the most effective natural antioxidants of all time.

13. Capryloyl

This component functions as a safe skin and hair conditioning agent.

14. Caproyl Methyl Glucamide

It works as a surfactant that produces a light foam and makes skin squeaky clean.

15. Lauroyl

This component works as another skin and hair conditioning agent.

16. Myristoyl Methyl Glucamide

Just like the previous component, it also functions as a skin and hair conditioning agent.

17. Glycolic Acid

Derived from Sugar Cane, it is one of the AHAs that helps to exfoliate the skin chemically. Glycolic Acid makes skin smooth, soft, and bright.

18. Phenoxyethanol

One of the most widely used preservatives, this component is moderately safe.

19. Ethylhexylglycerin

It has antimicrobial properties and along with that it also functions as a skin conditioning agent.

20. Niacinamide

This water-soluble vitamin helps to tighten skin pores, evens out skin tone, and diminishes fine lines.

21. Acetyl Glucosamine

A safe skin conditioning agent.

22. White Mulberry

White mulberry is amazing against pigmented skin tones. To know more benefits of Mulberry, check this out.

23. Apple Fruit Extract

The extract works as an anti-ageing and skin conditioning component.

24. Camellia Japonica Flower Extract

It works as an excellent emollient and also helps to reduce fine lines.

25. Green Tea Extract

If you want to keep your skin younger looking for a long time, then hardly anything can beat green tea extract.

26. Centella Asiatica Extract

For healing and treating dry skin conditions, this extract is the best out there.

27. Galactoarabinan

This component helps to reduce the signs of ageing e.g. fine lines, wrinkles, etc.

28. Walnut Extract

Walnut shell powder is one of the most ancient scrubs. But often, people complain that walnut particles are harsh upon the skin.

29. Silica

Silica not only improves overall skin texture but also boosts collagen production. Thus keeping the skin smooth and soft.

30. Coffee Extract

Coffee is a versatile ingredient. It helps with a suntan, dark spots, pigmentations, puppy eyes, cellulite reduction, etc.

31. Cocoa Extract

The raw cocoa extract helps to improve skin complexion and also helps with premature ageing.

32. IFRA Certified Allergen Free Fragrance 

Although the brand has not disclosed the name of the fragrance, yet the good part is that the fragrance is certified by The International Fragrance Association.

And, that’s all! What I liked that most of the ingredients are safe here. But unfortunately, the concentration of Coffee and Cocoa is significantly low. As if both of these ingredients work as mere featured components here.

Moreover, the brand has used a number of synthetic skin conditioning agents here. I believe Mamaearth could have done a much better job. Keeping everything in the picture, I cannot give the ingredients a rating of not more than 3.8 out of 5.

Packaging, Texture, and Aroma

The product comes in the usual packaging. The tube is entirely made of plastic. The brown-coloured cap is a flip-flop one which fulfils the purpose very well. Overall, the packaging looks neat and clean.

The texture of the scrub is honestly pretty weird. It looks just like a foaming cleanser with walnut beads in it. I was definitely not expecting something like this.

Finally, the aroma has

My Experience with Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub

Since the arrival of AHA based chemical exfoliant, I have limited the application of physical exfoliant up to once a week. It would be safe to say that I have used this coffee scrub 10 times altogether. And, here are the things I have experienced with each application.

Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub Texture

  • The scrub has a weird creamy shiny texture. The scrub particles are pretty low as well.
  • So, the scrubbing is not satisfactory at all.
  • Every time, it feels as if I am applying something slimy on my face & neck.
  • Moreover, it is quite difficult to wash off the scrub completely. I literally have to rub my face to wash off every bit of the srub.
  • Although it does not irritate my dry skin, yet I believe the texture is not suitable for people with oily and combination skin.
  • The fragrance has a hint of coffee for sure. But, the synthetic aroma can never give you the charm of a pure coffee and cocoa scrub.

Pros of Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub

  • Affordable
  • Enriched with the extracts of coffee, cocoa, white mulberry, apple, green tea, and many other beneficial herbs
  • Rich in exfoliating walnut shells
  • Suitable for dry and normal skin people
  • Does not irritate the skin
  • Cleans well
  • Makes skin hydrated and smooth

Cons of Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub

  • The concentration of cocoa, coffee, and other herbs is pretty low
  • It has a weird synthetic fragrance of coffee
  • Not suitable for people with oily and combination
  • Weak exfoliation

My Take on Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub

Would I Recommend/Repurchase This Scrub?

The answer to both the questions is a big no. Not only this scrub has poor formulation, but also comes with poor exfoliation.
Moreover, the texture and the offbeat synthetic fragrance make this scrub another flop. Keeping in mind everything, you would not miss anything if you dodge this scrub off.
