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, Baltic amber spreads a delicate typical fragrance of pine resin. Cosmetic formulations containing crushed amber may exude a subtle sensual aroma that identifies original amber. Crushed Baltic amber varies from batch to batch in both color or potential aroma, with some batches being quite nondescript.
Due to its small particle size, it is suitable for mild face exfoliation as well as body use.
