Overview Headline

The use of facial scrubs is credited to the ancient Egyptians.  Tartaric acid in wines was used as a chemical exfoliant in the middle ages.  Exfoliation is achieved through either a mechanical or chemical process.  The process involves physically scrubbing the skin with an abrasive such as sugar crystals. With a chemical exfoliant the use of concentrated acids (i.e., salicylic acid, glycolic acid, citric acid, etc.) are typically applied to the skin by a medical professional.  Scrubs using abrasives are convenient and more practical than using chemical exfoliants for a daily cleansing regimen.  The use of a scrub containing an anti-aging agent is attractive because added benefits are achieved:

  • Removal of dead skin
  • Smooth and glowing skin
  • Moisturizing/hydrating
  • Removing lingering facial oils or makeup
  • Anti-aging effect




Natural Ingredients

Scrubs are formulated with natural ingredients that are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) in the general population. All natural ingredients in scubs are proven to be safe and efficacious without testing in animal models.
