Date stones, also sometimes called seeds or pits, are non-toxic and edible, carrying many of their own nutritional benefits. But, for our purposes, we grind them down into a fine powder for gentle exfoliation and stimulation.
Dates are harvested from the date palm, a tree that naturally grows in both East and North Africa, as well as North, South and Central America. Carrying a rich, caramel-like taste, dates once served as the main fruit-based sweetener for many ancient civilizations. Before refined sugar was developed, fresh and dried dates were also regularly eaten as treats. They're generally around 50% sugar and contain fiber, as well as some protein, vitamins and minerals.
