    DECONSTRUCTING Exfoliating Body Wash - 11% AHA + 2% Salicylic Acid Body Wash for women & men

    Salicylic acid: This is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) that exfoliates the deeper pores to clean bacteria, dirt, oil, and dead skin cells and works on body acne/bacne or body breakouts.

    Lactic acid: Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that helps in superficial exfoliation of the epidermal skin layers and also acts as an excellent moisturizer by the virtue of it being naturally present in the skin’s natural moisturizing factor.

    Glycolic acid: Glycolic Acid is the  smallest and simplest AHA in terms of the chemical structure and penetrates into the dermis to exfoliate the deeper layers of the skin and gives smoother skin 

    Decyl Glucoside: It is a mild secondary surfactant that works by gently cleansing the skin and is suitable for sensitive skin types as well.  

    Cocamidopropyl betaine: This is a primary surfactant that due to its lathering action helps clear up dirt and impurities from the skin surface 

    Triethanolamine: Triethanolamine helps to adjust the pH, improve texture and stabilize the product.

    Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) water: Lavender water has antiseptic, soothing, hydrating, and antibacterial properties which give you the feeling of nourished, plump and fresh skin.

    Glycerine: Glycerine is a humectant that holds water and strengthens the skin’s barrier. It also helps in the penetration of other ingredients and works in combination with other emollients present.

    Maltooligosyl Glucoside (and) Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate: Both of them are humectants that work synergistically to keep the skin hydrated, thereby keeping the skin barrier intact and maintaining skin health.

    Cellulose beads: These are sustainable, biocompatible microbeads that help in exfoliating the skin deeply and disperse on the skin easily when rubbed. 

    Xanthan Gum: Moisturising and thickening agent, and a texture enhancer
    Int J Toxicol. 2016, Vol. 35(Supplement 1) 5S-49S

    Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexyl glycerin:  A combination of skin-softening, preservatives with antibacterial properties required to keep the serum fresh and free from any microbial growth
    Contact Dermatitis. 2016 May;74(5):281-8

    PEG 150 distearate: This works as an emulsifier and thickening agent.  

    Sodium Gluconate: Functions as a chelating agent and humectant.

It acts as a chemical exfoliant, that is less harsh as compared to physical exfoliating body scrubs. However, if you have a sensitive skin type or any skin condition we would recommend you to please consult a dermatologist before using our exfoliating body wash.
    5. Will this product cause my body's skin to purge in the beginning? Our exfoliating body wash cleanses the skin gently without causing irritation. It contains glycerine and lavender water which keep the skin’s moisture level intact and hydrated revealing nourished skin underneath.

      The difference between these products is that of the base and consistency. Shower creams are basically creamy in texturer and do not lather but cleanse the skin.

      As Exfoliating body wash contains potent actives like salicylic acid it should be used twice or thrice a week initially until one's skin gets adapted to the active and then the frequency can be increased to everyday use.

    Bad for my skin type

    I used for two weeks it made my skin more darker

    Soothing body wash

    Its very gentle and soothing. Really exfoliating one. But difficult to use with loofa.

    effective exfoliant

    I was looking for a good exfoliating body wash which is AHA based, and I found this. It lathers very little, so I use it on days I'm using a second cleanse, and leave it on for a few mins before rinsing. It leaves skin touchably soft and I think some dark spots are fading with regular use. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the microbeads, which serve no real purpose. Would love to get this in larger quantities although a travel sized version would be nice, too. Would highly recommend this since it exfoliates without stripping skin of moisture, and lends a silky feel afterwards.

    Best Body wash

    love the texture but would have preferred pump packaging

    It has worked on the body acne, very happy

    Hey, it really worked on body acne. So happy with the result. Will repurchase. Must try!!!
