An ancient technique reimagined for modern body-care rituals.
The body plane tool is inspired by the rituals of ancient Greek and Roman bathhouses. Strigils were metal scraping tools used for oil cleansing from head to toe. This modern take on the strigil is the Body Plane, crafted from premium teak wood. The stainless steel blunt edge is plated with colloidal sterling silver which is naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, leaving skin soothed and smoothed.
Gently and thoroughly exfoliate the skin without damaging or irritating its moisture barrier. Promote smooth skin and alleviate roughness and patchiness including ingrown hairs and keratosis pilaris (otherwise known as "chicken skin"). This tool gives your body a deep cleanse, removing dirt, residue and excess sebum.
How to use: Immediately after cleansing in bath or shower apply body oil from head to toe. Using medium to strong pressure, glide the Body Plane over damp, oiled skin towards the torso. Focusing on arms and legs scrape away dead skin and dirt with long, steady, upward strokes maintaining a moderate pressure. Wipe the Body Plane clean as needed with a clean, cotton cloth or tissue. Use softer pressure and shorter strokes on chest, torso and neck. Pregnancy friendly.
