Pumice is probably the single most popular exfoliant on the market today. It is also used in the manufacture of stone wash jeans, certain concrete, toothpaste and more. Pumice can be added to lotions, gels, soaps and more. It is actually volcanic ash which is formed from lava that is permeated with gas bubbles while it solidifies. Since lava has similar properties and chemical characteristics to glass, pumice is very abrasive. However, unlike glass, it is also very soft. Pumice is the softest abrasive media in use today which is what makes it so popular. It is all natural
This is the perfect addition to my gardners scrub soap. It works well with the lemongrass oil and lavender to make a wonderful cleansing bar with enough scrub power to really clean up. The pumice is finely ground so is not scratchy.
This is the very finely ground pumice that we used to get from another supplier who discontinued it. We use it with a larger scrub size pumice in our #1 selling Sea Scrub Soap. Love it!
I have used this in a pumice soap to replace a petro chemical soap for greasy hands. It has worked wonderfully in these products. Also made up some cream soap that I put a smaller amount in for a foot, knees and elbows scrub. Is not so abrasive that it hurts like some seeds can. Leaves skin smooth feeling afterwards.
