This exfoliant is actually given the name ‘Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant’ by OZ Naturals, but the funny thing is that I couldn’t find any evidence of rice in the ingredients. Then I found out that OZ Naturals have replaced the rice powder with bamboo, because it has better exfoliating properties and has anti-inflammatory properties as well.
This facial scrub actually comes in power form, so you need to add a small amount of water to make a thin paste, which you massage into your skin.
What are the ingredients in the OZ Naturals Facial Scrub?
This lovely facial exfoliator contains bamboo, green tea extract, panenthol, camellia sinensis leaf extract, thioctic acid, lactic acid, alpha lipoic acid and Pro-Vitamin B5.
It is made in the USA and doesn’t contain parabens or propylene glycol and is not tested on animals.
Benefits of bamboo stem powder: This ingredient is a rich source of silica, which is essential in maintaining healthy, hair, skin and nails and is a fabulous, gentle exfoliant as well.
Bamboo is also non-irritating, helping to sooth your skin, contains anti-oxidants to fight free radical damage caused by too much sun exposure and giving your complexion a fresher, healthier glow.
Benefits of alpha lipoic acid: This is a potent antioxidant, which also has anti-inflammatory properties. So alpha lipoic acid helps to minimize sun spots and age spots and evens out your skin tone. It is easily absorbed into your skin and is a great ingredient to have in your skin care routine.
Benefits of lactic acid: Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that helps to gently exfoliate your skin. So the top layer of dead skin cells are removed, revealing the new healthy skin underneath. Lactic acid can also help to stimulate the production of collagen in your skin, so you can also reduce fine lines and improve the definition of your skin around your jawline.
Benefits of pro-vitamin B5: This ingredient is a humectant, which means that it reduces the amount of moisture lost through your skin. It not only increases the hydration in your skin, but it also makes your skin softer and suppler and is a great ingredient for dry, flaky skin.
Benefits of green tea extract: You might not know this, but green tea is chocked full of antioxidants, so this facial scrub has lots of great antioxidants that help your skin to recover from the effects of sun exposure and free radical damage. This leaves your skin looking much cleaner and healthier and feeling soft and smooth.
How can the OZ Naturals AHA facial exfoliant help your skin?
Exfoliation is an important step in your skin care routine. This is because dead skin cells tend to accumulate on the surface of your skin, particularly when you use products containing retinol or vitamin C. Removing these accumulated dead skin cells not only gives your skin a more radiant glow, but it helps your other beauty products work more effectively.
How do you use the OZ Naturals facial exfoliant?
You can use this facial scrub 2 to 3 times a week. Just squeeze a small amount onto the palm of your hand (about the size of a nickel) and mix in a tiny amount of water to make a thin liquid paste.
Rub this mixture onto your skin in a circular movement, making about 3 to 5 passes over each part of your skin.
Leave it on for around 5 minutes in total, so the ingredients can soak into your skin and then rinse away with clean water. You can follow with your favorite moisturizer or serum.
What do customers say about the OZ Naturals exfoliant?
With 95% of all customer reviewers giving this gentle exfoliant a 4 or 5 star rating, you know that this is worthwhile including in your beauty routine.
I like this product, because it has some great ingredients and leaves my skin silky smooth. I also like having to mix the paste myself, as it feels more ‘natural’ that way.
