Celloxylin Enzyme Activated Micro Scrub is a highly effective mechanical exfoliant, designed to massage away dead skin cells and encourage healthy skin cell turnover. The primary exfoliating ingredient in the Enzyme Activated Micro Scrub is beet sugar.
Beet sugar was chosen as the primary exfoliating ingredient due to its ability to massage away dead skin cells without causing irritation to the healthy skin below. Other, commonly used abrasive ingredients include things like ground nut shells and course sea salt. When you consider these ingredients up close, there have sharp edges that can cause small cuts and damage skin at the microscopic level. The beet sugar crystals use in Enzyme Active Micro Scrub, however, are finely ground and dissolve relatively quickly. This property allows the beet sugar to effectively exfoliate while protecting skin from damage or irritation.
In addition to its ability to encourage healthy skin cell turnover, beet sugar has important humectant benefits. In skin care formulations humectants are ingredients that bind water to help improve skin hydration levels. These ingredients are particularly important because hydration is essential for healthy skin structure, function, and apperance. As the beet sugar dissolves during application, it helps keep skin healthy and hydrated by making sure it can absorb water and hold onto it for longer.
The result of the exfoliating and hydrating actions of beet sugar is that skin is visibly more radiant and supple after use. After removing dead skin cells from the surface and infusing skin with moisture retaining humectants, skin is also more able to absorb the anti-aging benefits of subsequent products in the Celloxylin regimen.
