This is an excellent all around exfoliant. We use all vegetable and organic components in this thickened body scrub base. We then add sugar and apricot seed meal making the scrub a mild exfoliator when rubbed on the skin. When the scrub is exposed to water, you will notice your skin soft and conditioned when rinsed, unlike the greasy after feel of straight oils (requiring soap, then moisturizing). We have customers who also use the product on the face which is a milder exfoliate than our microdermabrasion cream (Facial Refinisher).
