Why is exfoliating important?

Exfoliation is key to maintaining smooth skin as it removes oil & dead skin allowing moisture to be absorbed more easily by the skin. Exfoliation not only helps many skin problems, it also increases blood circulation, which in turn helps bring out healthy and glowing skin.

What types of exfoliants are used in our products?

Fine exfoliants work well for the face while large exfoliants work well for the body (especially dry areas like elbows and feet). But which you use where is largely based on personal preference. The best way to find out what works best for you is to test out different ones and see what you like best.
