Vantage Specialty Ingredients presents PFJ-S Beads, a next generation natural exfoliant for use in beauty and personal care products. It is the latest addition to Vantage’s collection of Desert Whale Jojoba natural exfoliants: biodegradable, sustainable alternatives to polyethylene (PE) beads. PE beads, or plastic microbeads, have been widely used around the globe in a variety of beauty and personal care products such as cleansers, scrubs and body washes in order to provide gentle yet effective exfoliation. However, awareness and concern about their damaging impact on the environment is growing. In addition, legislation in various countries around the world has recently been passed, such as the US’s Microbead-Free Waters Act of 2015, which will ban the sale of beauty and personal care products containing PE beads in the coming years.
PFJ-S Beads, was created in response to the demand for natural exfoliants that provide similar efficacy and skin feel to that of PE beads while being cost-effective. The products are made with jojoba esters derived from natural wax esters that are extracted from seeds of the jojoba plant, a shrub native to the Sonoran Desert of the US and Mexico. The beads are available in a variety of sizes and are gentle enough for daily use.
