One of the most popular types of exfoliants are jojoba beads, which are produced from jojoba oil. Jojoba beads are commonly mistaken for plastic microbeads. The two products look and feel very much alike, but are vastly different. Jojoba oil is a liquid wax derived from the jojoba shrub.
Jojoba beads are tiny, spherically shaped beads consisting of hydrogenated natural jojoba oil (= jojoba wax), round shape warrants effective but gentle exfoliation. Small, round beads, faint odor. Insoluble in water. Beads size (40/60 mesh size or 250-425 microns) is ideal for exfoliation on delicate skin such as the face, lip and cuticle exfoliation.
