Exfoliation is not just scrubbing off old skin to make you feel smooth. Skin is layered, with the cells constantly renewing and growing to the surface. Phytomer Exfoliators assists in this natural process, gently removing the dead, dry cells at the surface so the younger, healthier cells can come to the fore. To be effective, exfoliation should not disrupt the natural progression of skin growth or interrupt the balance of lipids and moisture-protecting layers that are an important part of skin structure. The suite of Phytomer Exfoliators works with the natural skin processes to gently urge the old cells off the surface to encourage the formation of new ones.
