Smooth & Soothe is a dual exfoliator, which means it’s a combo of both abrasive and chemical exfoliation. Sounds scary, but all it means is that you get a very thorough scrub. Jojoba beads (pronounced ho-ho-ba, before you ask) provide the abrasive scrub and are small bits of very smooth wax that brush away dead skin, without causing micro-tears to the skin’s surface. Fruit acids from apple, lime and pineapple are the chemical bit and they work to eat away at the “glue” that holds the dead cells together.
There’s also marshmallow root extract which is a great anti-inflammatory ingredient, so it leaves you with skin that’s healthy and soft with minimal redness.
