Diatomaceous Earth

Astara Daily Refining Scrub
This organic-aloe-based exfoliant combines diatomaceous earth from the depths of the sea 
with soothing and nutrient-rich plant extracts 
for profound cleansing, buffing, and removal of dead cells
 to improve overall skin health absorption of nutrients. 
Refines fine lines when used consistently.


Diatomaceous Earth is organic silica-based minerals (including magnesium, iron and calcium) from the ocean floor that act as a physical buffing agent to exfoliate dead skin cells and promote healthy cell renewal.  
This naturally occurring soft sedimentary rock is round so it polishes without damaging the skin.  Just as river rocks become round from the wearing away of water so does this "sand" from the depths of the ocean.

Aloe barbadensis
is widely recognized for its moisturizing abilities. It is skin softening, healing, and anti-inflammatory.

SkinCeuticals Micro-Exfoliating Scrub
Also uses diatomaceous earth and aloe.
