A note on Benzyl Alcohol: The Ecocert Organic logo demands that 95% of the total ingredients must be of natural origin. In all of World Organics skin and beauty products a minimum of 99.1% in the formula TOSC5 of ingredients are of natural origin. The balance of ingredients are the extremely safe food grade preservatives of Potassium Sorbate and Benzyl Alcohol Dehydroacetic Acid.
The concern with hydrogenated oils is that there is the possibility of generating trans fats. If the reaction conditions are carefully controlled then this can be avoided and this is the case with the hydrogenated oils in our products. In other words, the oils are processed at low temperatures to avoid trans fats in the final products.
Please Note: The ascorbyl palmitate that may be used in this Esse product is a derivative of ascorbic acid and palmitic acid - the palmitic acid is isolated from either coconut, rape seed or palm oil. Esse have insured to use a supplier that has RSPO certification for times where palm oil is used in their products.
4 out of 5 people would recommend this product17/08/2017, By StephI am not sure about this product. I received a sample and gave it a try. I was confused by this being an exfoliator as it was a perfectly smooth clay type texture. I used it as directed and my skin felt cleansed and fresh after, but I don't think my skin was properly exfoliated.06/07/2017, By CristinaI didn't think it had enough exfoliating action for my combination skin but would imagine it works better for very sensitive skins.08/05/2017, By jayaFeel a bit irritated with this exfoliator. I remember the exfoliating particles used to be much rougher, but now you almost can't feel a scrubbing action :/ The thickness is also a bit intense.
Guess there's a reason it's called MICROderm.
Still love Esse though :)26/01/2016, By LynVery gentle, hardly feels like an exfoliator, more like a moisturizer, but works well.21/09/2015, By DebbieI have really enjoyed this gentle scrub. My skin is so smooth and soft after using it.
