Pumice Grains have been used in liquid, solid and gel abrasive hand soaps for decades. Today Pumice Powders and Grains are a natural alternative to plastic microbeads. Pumice is now widely used in foot scrubs, hand cleaners, body & shower gels, facial scrubs and even kitchen surface cleaners.
In soap, Pumice offers a light abrasive quality which easily removes almost any grease or grime. Because Pumice is a soft media and a natural mineral, it isn’t harsh or toxic to people or the environment.
Moderation and a light touch are key when applying any abrasive soap, cleaner or polish. Applying too much pressure while applying an abrasive cleaner can cause scratches or redness. Instead, use a very light application of a scrub and wash and dry the cleansed area thoroughly. If you are polishing a car remove any residue with a soft lint-free cloth. Always use circular motions when applying abrasive soap, scrubs, cleaner and polish to prevent “burning” an area from concentrated actions.
Today pumice is used in more than just abrasive soap and its ability as a versatile mild abrasive additive is continually being developed in new markets.
