Plantogen Sole Scrub and Repair Cream


by Evelyn Chen

It’s the season for strappy sandals and pretty pedicures. To make sure your feet are in tip top shape, try Plantogen, a beauty experience from Down Under. This relatively new range of skin and body care products is made in New Zealand where the environment is pristine, the pace calm and where Manuka Honey and Rotorua Geothermal Clay are found in abundance.

Dr. Oliver Zong, a New York City-based podiatrist and accomplished foot surgeon recommends Plantogen’s minty Sole Scrub for smooth feet. The Sole Scrub’s apricot seeds serve as an excellent exfoliant and its aroma of Chamomile and Tea Tree essential oils makes this at-home foot spa therapy a high pleasant one, especially when used in conjunction with Plantogen’s Sole Repair Cream. Infused with Shea Butter, Avocado, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Peppermint, this rich cream works best when slowly massaged into clean feet after a bath or foot scrub. For individuals with stubborn foot calluses, a more intensive home ritual using both products is highly recommended.

Plantogen’s Sole Scrub and Sole Repair Cream both retail at $20.40 each.
