This gentle yet highly effective exfoliant helps uncover your gorgeous, clarified skin, leaving your complexion fresher, brighter, and smoother with it's intensive assortment of exfoliating acids.
The physical exfoliation of the hibiscus fibers, combined with the combination of acids polishes away stubborn cells on the surface, without "over-doing" it. This scrub is a great alternative to bead exfoliants and other harsher physical scrubs.
The Exfoliating Ingredients:
Glycolic Acid unglues the dead cells from the surface and speeds up the cell renewal process. This increases stimulation in the connective tissue and can promote faster cell renewal.
Tartaric Acid is a naturally-occurring organic acid that comes from fermented grapes. This acid assists the removal of dead skin cells and helps stabilize the pH of the overall formula. One of the main acids in wine, tartaric acid also has antioxidant properties and is an alpha hydroxy acid.
Salicylic Acid penetrates your pores and breaks down the lipids and fats that make the dead skin cells stick together. If these bonds are not broken down, the dead skin cells can block the skin pores. It also works as a keratolytic agent. This means it can easily loosen keratin (a protein that forms the basic structure of the topmost skin layer). When the keratin loosens up, it’s easier for your skin to shed the scaly and damaged parts.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids come from various different types of fruit, including papaya, and exfoliate the uppermost layers of skin. This helps unveil fresher, refined skin that appears clearer, smoother, is more hydrated, and with time becomes visibly firmer.
Malic Acid is also an alpha hydroxy acid, with similar benefits as lactic acid. It's gentle, and is great to include in formulas with other acids due to its ceramide stimulation abilities which helps skin recover faster.
Jojoba Microbeads are a natural wax exfoliant that gently assists the acids in removal of dead skin cells from the surface.
Benefits of Hibiscus:
A powerful anti-aging plant active, it’s often called the ‘Botox' plant. Hibiscus has a magical reputation for increasing skin elasticity by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme elastase, which is responsible for breaking down our skin’s precious elastin. Due to the slightly exfoliating effect of the organic acids found in the plant, including citric acid and malic acid, Hibiscus helps to speed up cell turnover, resulting in a more even looking skin tone.
Hibiscus is also rich in antioxidants, called anthocyanocides. Not only do anthocyanocides protect against free radical damage, they also have a slightly astringent property which can help to reduce the appearance of large pores for a smoother complexion. They have an anti-inflammatory effect as well, and can help to soothe inflamed skin.
Dampen your face and apply the exfoliant cream. Exfoliate your face and neck every three days. Always exfoliate in circular motions in an upward direction. Be gentle with your skin; you do not need heavy pressure. Follow with your preferred moisturizer.
