Natural Exfoliators & Benefits For Your Skin

Exfoliators help clear away accumulated dead skin cells, so the new and fresh skin cells are brought to the forefront and your skin looks renewed better than ever!  At Potion Organic, we focus on using natural exfoliators and each has its own unique benefit.

Bromelain

Bromelain is a natural enzyme found in pineapples that helps reduce inflammation, soothe redness and has antimicrobial properties. It helps to clear and brighten your skin. What makes bromelain a wonderful ingredient to have in exfoliating skincare products is that it helps break down proteins holding the dead skin cells and the new skin cells can make their appearance. It gently resurface skin to provide a smooth, fresh and radiant complexion.

Baobab

Baobab powder is packed with antioxidants, rich in vitamin C, increases the production of collagen and elastin in your skin. It has gentle exfoliation benefits as is delicate on the skin so it's a perfect scrub/exfoliator for a sensitive and prone to irritations skin.

Bamboo

When bamboo powder is added to a cleanser, it becomes a fantastic exfoliator. Using it daily can lead to tighter skin, fewer wrinkles and can help remineralise the skin. Bamboo is naturally high in silica, and unlike other exfoliants isn’t harsh on the skin. Those who have more sensitive skin will enjoy using products with this ingredient.

Walnut Shell

Walnut shell powder makes for a great exfoliant. If you rub it against the skin, it can help smoothen the skin and create a glowing complexion. Other benefits of using walnut shell powder include removing excess oils, acne or redness, and treat different types of skin conditions. 

Honey

Honey powder has a list of benefits for your skin. Similar to its liquid counterpart, it’s antimicrobial as well as antiseptic, which lends itself to making it a perfect detoxifying agent and exfoliant. It breaks up any dirt or dead skin cells, so they can easily be washed off. It’s also nutrient rich and contains vitamin C, B, zinc, selenium, magnesium, and more, which allow for it to help moisturize your skin. 

Papain & Chymopapain

Papain and chymopapain are the fruit enzymes of papaya. Papaya is known to have many positive benefits on the skin. Similarly to bromelain, it helps breaking down the proteins hence assist in shedding the dead skin cells and leaves the skin looking more even, brighter and more youthful. No more red spots or uneven looking skin!
