Wash-Off / Leave-On

Personal Care Ingredients

We offer natural ingredients for personal care and cosmetic products that are healthy and do not harm the environment.

Our goal is to help cosmetic and personal care manufacturers phase out synthetic microbeads (microplastics) and identify the natural ingredients that best serve as replacements. We also partner with brands to create new lines of sustainable and compostable cosmetics using fruit stone powders.

Wash-Off Products

We supply native olive stone granules and other natural ingredients to formulate exfoliators, scrubs, soaps, and gels for skin cleaning (temporary use). Fruit stone granules are natural abrasives that facilitate removal of dead cells and therefore smoothen, cleanse and regenerate the skin.

Natural Exfoliating Beads and Scrubs

Our natural exfoliating grains can be used for formulating exfoliating body scrubs to be used to gently peel away the dead cells from the epidermis and restore the skin’s natural soft texture. There are several types of exfoliators and scrubs that we can cater for:

  • Body and face scrubs
  • Face exfoliators
  • Hand and foot scrubs
  • Nail scrubs
  • Lip and nose scrubs
  • Scalp scrubs
  • Lip exfoliator

Abrasives for Hand Cleaners

Plastic micro beads are no longer an acceptable option for manufacturers with a genuine interest in their customers’ health and the environment. Hence, also in the production of hand cleaners natural and biodegradable grits are on the rise: anything from walnut shell and corn cob up to silica has been considered to a certain extent – with varying results.


Give your customers a reason to smile: add all-natural ingredients to your dental care range. Our products can entirely replace synthetic ingredients with natural micro-abrasion particles that help achieve a whitening effect.

Soaps and Body Creams

Use our natural fruit stone granules as base materials in formulations for shower creams, balms, gels, and soaps – without the need for preserving agents. Fine fruit stone powders enhance the haptic experience with a soft and relaxing sensation.

Leave-On Products

Fruit Stone Powders as Natural Base Materials and Texturizers

Fruit stone powders can replace synthetic base materials (e.g. xanthan gum, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) in makeup or other aesthetic products. Add versatility to your lineup and increase the bio-based portion of your products. Our powders are suitable formulation ingredients for

  • Eyeshadows
  • Face powders
  • Foundations
  • Make-ups
  • Lipsticks

Depending on the grain size, our powders can act as texturising agents, sensory modifiers, stabilisers, binders or fillers in your coscmetic formulation.

Colour Cosmetic Ingredients

Add fruit stone powders to your hair and skin colouring products to create innovative light-reflection effects. The natural, non-spherical shape of our powder particles can enhance gloss and luminosity. The colour of all powders becomes progressively lighter with a smaller micron size.

Pigment Carriers and Natural Colorants

Apart from acting as carriers for pigments, fruit stone powders can be added to diverse formulations as natural colourants. They can alter the colour of your products and make them look more attractive to end users. Colour ranges of our powders include:

  • Light beige (olive stone powder, pistachio shell powder)
  • Orange (apricot stone powder, avocado stone powder)
  • Dark beige, rust red (argan shell powder)
  • Mauve (grape seed powder)
  • Brown (almond shell powder, peach stone powder)

Natural Actives

Certain fruit stone powders are rich in antioxidants that prevent cell degradation and therefore the effects of ageing. Others have moisturising and re-fattening effects to protect and strengthen the natural hydrolipid film of the skin.

  • Apricot stone powder: lipid and antioxidant source
  • Avocado stone powder: antioxidant, lipid, moisture source
  • Grape seed powder: vitamin and antioxidant source
  • Olive stone powder: antioxidant source
