Amber Powder Exfoliant - Natural Origin
A timeless gem of natural origin, amber is the fossilized resin from amber forests of Pinus succinifera in existence some 45 million years ago. Ground to a very fine, smoothly rounded particle, this plant product has been developed as a physical exfoliant agent to accelerate skin desquamation and thereby improve skin appearance.
Its aroma is one of the best proofs to identify true amber, as upon heating (to about 300°F), Baltic amber, as it starts to decompose, will have a delicate fragrance of pine resin.
Due to its small particle size, Amber Powder is suitable for mild face exfoliation, as well as body use.
