A new trend is redefining the ingredients of our favourite scrubs, cosmetic brands are progressively eliminating pastic microbeads and replacing them with more modern alternatives, respectful of skin and biodegradable. Here are three options to discover.
Dove silica microbeads
A little over a year ago, Dove removed plastic microbeads from its scrubs. Since then, they’ve opted for silica derived from natural mineral sources. This creamy formula gently exfoliates and contains moisturizing agents to nourish the skin while it cleanses. A must-have for anyone who wants a silky and hydrated skin. A product that will help you get the most out of your morning shower!
Vichy jojoba beads
Instead of adding microbeads to its scrub, Vichy created a formula containing micro-jojoba beads, an option that is much more environmentally-friendly. The formula is designed for sensitive skin and helps remove impurities and dead skin cells while stimulating the skin’s cellular renewal. Apply the product in the shower by massaging it into your skin with your fingers. Your skin will be smooth and soft. Hello radiant glow!
Clarins silica microbeads and microspheres
Not only does this product cleanse and exfoliate, it also removes makeup! Its silica and cellulose microbeads thoroughly unclog your skin. The formula also contains moringa seeds and orange extract to detoxify the skin and restore its radiance. Apply a pea-sized dab on the skin using gentle circular motions and rinse. Your face will be toned and refreshed. A sensorial experience that also provides a moment of relaxation.
