What is the difference between chemical and physical exfoliation?
Traditional facial cleansers and scrubs typically use physical exfoliants (crushed nut shells, micro-plastic beads etc) which physically abrade the surface of the skin to dead skin cells. Several problems are inherent with this method. Physical exfoliants are rough and create micro-cuts on our skin, damaging new skin growth and accelerating the appearance of facial aging.
Chemical exfoliants dissolve dead skin cells and oils, which accelerates new cell turn over. This provides an effective skin cleansing treatment without the harsh physical abrasion of traditional cleansers.
All Save Your Face cleansers utilize chemical exfoliation.
