How to choose exfoliation ingredients

Choices of clean exfoliation ingredients and carrier oils abound, so choose the most appropriate option for your particular situation and desired benefits.

Exfoliation ingredients 


A gentle alternative to salt, sugar will not disrupt the natural, slightly acidic pH of skin.


A purifying and cleansing exfoliant.

Coffee Grounds

Spent coffee grounds provide a gentle physical exfoliant action and their slightly acidic pH helps preserve the natural pH of skin. Gently activating and energizing.

Ground Almonds

Provide a creamy, granular texture and add a particularly nourishing benefit to scrubs.


Exceptionally calming and soothing addition to scrubs, ground oatmeal is the best choice for people with tender, sensitive skin.


A good choice for any skin type, cornmeal provides a gentle -- but not too gentle -- exfoliation.

Skin care oils

Sweet almond and apricot kernel oils

Great, multi-functional oil carriers for any exfoliant. A good choice for dry skin.

Grapeseed oil

A thinner, more absorbent oil that pairs well with fine grain exfoliants.


High in unsaturated fatty acids and with a thin, absorbent texture a good choice for gentle facial scrubs.

Coconut Oil

The thick, salve-like texture of coconut oil is rich in skin protecting saturated stearic acids and lends itself to extended glide time.

Aloe Vera Gel

A non-oil based alternative, hydrating and soothing. Can't be used with sugar or salt as they well dissolve.
