Almond Exfoliator

Exfoliating particle

Description of the item

Our Almond Exfoliator is a natural exfoliant made from the almonds shells harvested in Italy between early June and late July in Sicily. The harvested almonds are used for the food industry. We will recover almond shells to give them a second life by transforming them into cosmetic ingredients.

Once crushed, the shells are then passed through a sieve to create exfoliating particles of different sizes (from 1000 to 200 µm).

With their brown color, these exfoliants bring a natural touch to your formulations. They exhibit a good abrasiveness and a good stability.
Their abrasiveness index is between 3 and 4.

Our almond exfoliator is stable in all types of formulations, including aqueous formulations. The abrasiveness of the particles does not change. The particles do not bleach or colour the product. It is easy to keep in suspension.

These exfoliants bring a touch of naturality to your formulas. They can be used in anhydrous formulations only.
