A gentle seawater-based exfoliating cream containing pumice and pearl crystals to refine skin surface and promote cellular turnover. Fortified with antioxidants and organic essential oils, this exfoliator will leave your skin smoother and more radiant.
Why We Like It
It’s gentle, first and foremost, but does what you would expect of an exfoliator. The blend of essential oils make it an experience that will remind you of 23 shades of vanilla, grapefruit, orange, and a tiny hint of peppermint. It is the Goldilocks blend…not too much – not too little – just right.
Now, you’ll find this information in our ingredient section but we wanted to also get it up front here on center stage. Have you heard of micro-plastics? These are tiny spherical particles of polyethylene also referred to as micro-beads, and are often used in cosmetics and toothpastes. These little guys are bad news for everyone. So small, they pass right through municipal water systems, ending up back in the environment and our oceans. The worst part is, they almost never disappear. Sadly, these man-made elements are beginning to make their way into our food-chain. Read more about this important issue in this piece done by NPR and researcher Dr. Sherri A. Mason, a professor of chemistry at the State University of New York, Fredonia.
We don’t use micro-plastics. Ocean Rescue formulas, in particular our exfoliants, use only natural ground pearl and pumice crystals, never artificial poly-anything. We are also working on bamboo exfoliants. We’ll let you know as soon as they are introduced.
