Making A Beautiful Change With Sustainable Exfoliation

If we want to keep the world in great shape, we need to live sustainably. At the same time, many of us aim to treat our skin and ourselves properly too. That’s why we have got you covered from head to toe – with exfoliating and sustainable products that will bring out beautiful and radiant skin.

Achieving beautiful skin shouldn’t be at the expense of the environment. Did you know that over 200 million tons of plastic is littering our oceans? Or that plastic takes years to break down in nature? 

When scientists began to talk about the plastic micro beads in scrub products that were adding to the plastic litter in oceans, our Research and Developments experts had already begun to put in place several measures to stop using them. Our experts looked to nature for inspiration and found the perfect alternatives – natural origin scrubs. Since 2014, all of our new exfoliating products use 100% natural origin scrub ingredients—from poppy seeds and almond shells to olive stones and salt. It’s our way of helping to keep you and our world looking beautiful—naturally.

We want to keep you beautiful from head to toe, so we’ve picked a selection of our favourite exfoliating products that can keep your skin smooth and soft – all with natural origin scrub ingredients. 


Put your best face forward with NovAge Smoothing Exfoliating Scrub. This scrub is just what you need when your skin looks and feels a bit lackluster. With its rich texture and delicate scent, this exfoliating scrub uses natural lactic acid and natural origin scrub particles to polish away dull, dead skin cells, clear pores and refine skin texture. A customer favourite!

NovAge Men Purifying & Exfoliating Cleanser contains natural black charcoal particles to help cleanse men’s testosterone-rich skin. Black charcoal not only draws out and absorbs dirt and excess oil, it also exfoliates skin without over-drying it. Perfect for keeping your guy looking his best.

Give your hands some SPA time with Milk & Honey Gold Nourishing Hand Scrub. Formulated with organically sourced milk and honey extracts, this scrub helps to smooth away rough, dull skin with exfoliating almond shell, making hand cream application more effective.

Looking for a way to indulge your skin at home? Swedish Spa Exfoliating Scrub  expertly exfoliates with salt and almond shells to scrub away dull, lustreless skin. This fantastic scrub also contains ginger oil and sweet almond oil to help nourish and tone your skin, leaving it soft and smooth.
