Apricot Exfoliator

Exfoliating particle

Description of the item

Our Apricot Exfoliator is a natural exfoliator made from the shells of apricot kernels. Grown along the slopes of the Langeberg Mountains in South Africa near Little Karoo, apricots enjoy an ideal Mediterranean climate, very hot and dry in summer and cool and rainy in winter. The dry climate, combined with the naturally calcareous soil, is ideal for growing apricots. They are harvested between June and August. Once harvested and used by the food industry (juice, oil, jam,…), we recover the crushed apricot kernels in order to transform them into a scrub.

Once crushed, then it will pass through a sieve to create exfoliating particles of different grain sizes (from 1000 to 200 µm).

These fine exfoliating particles are ideal for gently exfoliating the skin, illuminating and brightening the complexion while re-toning the skin.

These exfoliants bring a touch of naturality to your formulas. They exhibit a good abrasiveness and a good stability. They can be used in anhydrous formulations only.
