Exfoliating Facial Facts:

Pineapple is a natural source of the enzyme bromelain which is used medicinally to promote healing, reduce bruising, inflammation, swelling and pain.

Pineapple is a potent antioxidant containing vitamin C which helps to reduce free radical activity, is a source of minerals, vitamins including potassium, citric acid and folic acid. As an alpha-hydroxy fruit acid, pineapple exfoliates dead skin cells, stimulates skin repair and collagen production which reduces facial wrinkles.
Papayas are rich in medicinal properties. As a matter of fact, all parts of the papaya plant can be used medicinally. Rich in vitamins A, B and C, as well as in calcium, phosphorus and iron papaya is used to treat many skin disorders such as acne, warts, corns, to reduce swelling, and promote healing.

Pumpkin has natural healing properties, is an excellent organic source of vitamin A, C and E as well as rich in beta-carotene, antioxidants, amino acids and minerals. It is a skin softening agent with emollient attributes and is used as a natural cure for burns, and other skin inflammations.

All three of these fruits are exceptionally strong fruit acids which work to remove dead skin cells with collect on the surface of the skin giving it a dull, dry appearance.

Fruit acids penetrate deep though the layers of skin to increase the rate of new skin cell regeneration and collagen formation.

Sugar cane is a natural source of glycolic acid. The sugar also provides an abrasive quality to the scrub to completely polish the surface of the skin for complete exfoliation.
