If you think about it, you are in the shower or bath and probably have just washed your hands so it should be okay. What I am more concerned about with this product is collecting of moisture. I always make should I pour any water out that may have dripped off my fingers before I close the cap. Moisture breeds bacteria.

I always scoop it out with my fingers, I'm in the shower anyway so my hands are clean

I use my fingers. The texture feels like it makes a barrier on the skin along with exfoliating, so you don't really have to worry there. Just wash you hand in soap, body wash, or something (like Head & Shoulders Shampoo), beforehand if you don't want to "contaminate" the jar...especially if you let other people use it (I don't...its just too good).
