Proven! Our team of chemistry whizzes has analyzed this product’s label claims, and the ingredients that deliver them. Here’s the science behind why it works.
The Claim: Exfoliate
Ingredient: Pumice Stone - Extracts of this foamy volcanic stone help remove excessive callous skin tissue - best used on damp skin to break apart flaky skin cells faster. Studies have also shown that this gentle abrasive can help cleanse and remove dirt on the skin. Read study.
The Claim: Combats Free Radical Damage
Ingredient: Vitamin E - The ultimate multitasker, Vitamin E helps to repair the skin’s natural moisture barrier when applied topically and also helps protect your skin against harmful UV rays. Exposure to UV rays accelerates free-radical damage - a nasty process that breaks down collagen and elastin (your skin's support structure) and causes pre-mature aging. Read study.
The Claim: Reinforces Lipid Barrier
Ingredient: Virgin Coconut Oil - This naturally occurring oil helps restore your skin’s natural moisture barrier and “fold” down rough patches, which means softer, smoother skin for you! Read Study.
