Rhyolite Exfoliator benefits for skin
This fine powder is born from lava stones then used in place of plastic microbeads as an environmentally-friendly alternative. No matter how hard we work to keep our skin clean, a single day spent in an urban environment can leave behind a coating of toxic dirt that can be impossible to lift away, especially if a layer of dead skin cells trap those toxins in.
A good exfoliator will help lift away dead skin cells while erasing the dirt that accumulates throughout the day, without stripping skin of natural oils.
Many cosmetic companies choose plastic microbeads, which are gentle because they are smooth, but are busy filling up our oceans with tiny plastic beads of poison that will remain infinitely.
Others choose natural options such as apricot seeds that can be rough, resulting in microscopic tears to the skin that allow toxins to invade our protective barrier in search of vulnerable collagen and elastin cells beneath. When toxins and skin proteins collide, skin loses it elasticity and vibrancy and develops fine lines and wrinkles.
Rhyolite Exfoliator is an all-natural, fine powder that works to smooth skin and erase dead surface cells to reveal fresh, revitalized skin beneath.
Uses of Rhyolite Exfoliator
In addition to being used in exfoliating skin care products, the stable powder can be used in soap bars or pastes to scrub away dirt and oil from gardening, painting or mechanical jobs as well as in toothpaste to provide a clean that can rival one in the dentist’s chair.
The lava stone itself is often used in the construction of buildings on the Lipari Islands where it originates.
Source and sustainability of Rhyolite Exfoliator
Rhyolite exfoliator is made from processed lava stones, and it is not only 100 percent renewable and biodegradable, it also takes the place of exfoliating plastic beads, which are flooding the world’s waterways with plastic that can not only damage marine life that mistake the tiny beads for food, but also humans who harvest the marine life for food.
The lava stones are gathered from volcanos on Lipari Island, the largest of the Aeolian Islands in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the northern coast of Sicily in southern Italy. The region houses the largest deposit of pumice in the world.
