Ingredients for Scrubs
Description and products: Scrubs are used on the face and body to remove dead skin cells. This makes the skin feel softer and look healthier. Scrubs often contain an ingredient that is present as coarse particles. These particles aid in effectively but safely removing only the dead skin, without damaging the skin underneath. Scrubs can temporarily leave the skin looking dry, therefore using a body care oil or skin moisturizer afterwards is recommended.
Trends and ingredients: The main ingredients of scrubs are exfoliating coarse particles, oils and preservatives. Regarding exfoliating particles, a positive development is that the usage of polluting plastic microbeads has stopped almost everywhere in the world. There is an ever-growing number of exfoliating particle substances from sugar, coffee, walnut shells, bamboo, grinded fruit seeds or kernels, to salt and sands from exotic places. Oils help scrub particles to move more easily over your skin, reducing friction like lubricants and typically are olive, coconut, almond and jojoba oils. Preservatives stop or avoid growth of bacteria and yeasts.
