Design of exfoliating product

The exfoliants are mainly divided into two types: physical exfoliants and chemical exfoliants. They have their own advantages and disadvantages. More and more products on the market combine their characteristics which is more gentle and have better cleansing effects.

Physical exfoliants Chemical exfoliants

Therefore, it is recommended to apply some plant oil such as glycerin, shea butter and jojoba oil in the formula to moisturize and repair the skin at the same time. In addition, adding some spices can make the skin smell good after exfoliation, which can be one of the highlights of the product.

Compared with body skin, the facial skin is more tender and complex, so their designs of formula and itexture vary from each other.When it comes to facial exfoliating products, we generally choose delicate particles and ingredients that soften the keratin gently.
