Natural Exfoliating Beads for the Cosmetic Industry

The personal care industry has experienced an ever growing trend for deep cleansing of the skin.

Exfoliating Bead Properties

There are many ways to free the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) from any dirt and to restore its fresh, glowing look. Exfoliation (or peeling) has become a popular routine for many people.
Small, lightly abrasive particles are contained in many wash-off cosmetics such as shower gels, hand cleaners, foot scrubs and soaps. In opposite to micro bead free exfoliants they have a massage effect and stimulate blood circulation through soft pressure.

Why Choose Natural Exfoliators Instead of Plastic Beads

Growing environmental and health awareness has led to massive criticism of exfoliating beads made of plastics (polyethylene, polypropylene, polyurethane). Thousands of tons of those nearly invisible bits are being washed into our waters and inflict contamination on our ecosystems. For this reason the demand to replace the harmful plastic beads with bio-based products became stronger and more and more urgent.

Advantages of Bio-Based Exfoliation

There is great news: BioPowder offers a high quality selection of natural exfoliating beads as a sustainable alternative. They are not only effective deep-cleansing agents but provide a number of unique benefits. Being fully plant-based, i.e. derived from renewable sources, natural microbeads come in a variety of colors and can be customized in size through advanced micronization methods. The product line is made exclusively from by-products of the food industry - an innovative upcycling approach that does not generate any waste. Only selected fruit stones and shells are used to produce the biodegradable micro beads, which have already received recommendations from some experts due to their environmental friendliness and natural degradability.
