Behind the Bottle: Mineral Enzyme Exfoliant
If you've been curious about gommage products, start with Cosmedica Skincare's Mineral Enzyme Exfoliant.
Gommage literally means "to erase" in French. These products are typically enzymatic exfoliators, derived from the acids in fruits like pineapple and papaya. Enzymatic exfoliators break down the "glue" that holds dead skin cells together. When this material is broken down, the surrounding cells are sloughed off without having to manually scrub the skin.
Who wants to use this
Enzymatic exfoliators are ideal for individuals with sensitive, thin, or skin that's prone to irritation. Or, if you just really really love instant gratification products. ;-)
How to apply
Apply to clean, dry skin. Hold bottle about 4 inches away and evenly spray onto face. Wait 30 seconds for mineral enzymes to activate and absorb. Using fingers or minimally abrasive washcloth, begin to rub targeted areas in small circular motions; continue freely until entire face has been exfoliated. Gently rinse with warm water. Safe to use 3-4 times a week.
