Discover the benefits of mechanical and enzymatic exfoliants, and explore our natural products from éméo, including Rosaly Exfoliating Powder, Bee Mine Mask, aloe vera, and Alpha-lift Serum.

What Is an Exfoliant and Why Exfoliate the Skin

Exfoliation involves removing dead skin cells using physical or chemical exfoliants, exposing the healthy tissues underneath. This process speeds up the removal of these dead cells, also known as dead skin.

The Benefits of Exfoliation

Exfoliation reveals new skin, providing a radiant complexion, free from dullness, blackheads, and even fewer pimples.

Cellular Renewal Cycle and the Importance of Exfoliation

The skin renews its cells every month. However, some cells remain trapped in the pores, which can lead to problems. A clogged pore can create blackheads or pimples if sebum pushes under the blockage of dead cells, causing inflammation.

Another downside of dead cells is that they dull the complexion, making it appear gray, dull, and uneven. By removing these cells more quickly, your skin always looks its best!

The Two Types of Exfoliants

Mechanical Exfoliant

A mechanical exfoliant is made up of small particles, sometimes fruit shells or other abrasive powders.

However, it is not recommended if you have sensitive skin or are prone to rosacea. Natural exfoliating products like those offered by éméo are formulated with less irritating ingredients than alcohol-based products.

Rosaly Exfoliating Powder smoothes the skin, revitalizes the complexion, and promotes better serum penetration. Rosaly Exfoliating Powder is enriched with Aloe Vera powder, an enzymatic BHA exfoliant in addition to bamboo powder, Chinese rose powder, and oat powder. If you suffer from rosacea, avoid sensitive areas and use very gentle motions.

Enzymatic Exfoliant

Enzymatic exfoliants, also known as "chemical" exfoliants (remember, everything is chemistry, H2O molecules are the chemical element of water), rely on compounds such as AHA (alpha-hydroxy acids) and BHA (beta-hydroxy acids). AHA, such as glycolic acid and citric acid, dissolve dead cells, helping your skin regain a softer and smoother texture.

You can find AHA in our Bee Mine Mask and Alpha-lift Premium Serum. Aloe Vera's BHA offers a natural peeling effect thanks to salicylic acid. Enriched with vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, it is particularly suitable for sensitive and reactive skin.

Aloe Vera - A Treasure of Benefits

éméo's Aloe Vera gel contains approximately 75 therapeutic ingredients, including:

- Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, B12, essential for skin health

- Minerals (calcium, copper, zinc, etc.) essential for the proper functioning of the skin

Note: Not all Aloe Vera gels are the same. éméo's Aloe Vera Gel, made from native gel and mild preservatives, guarantees authentic benefits.
