Synergie MEDISCRUB (physical exfoliant) contains the key ingredient Corundum (Aluminium Oxide) in a fine crystal form. This natural earth mineral is the same crystal used in clinical microdermabrasion machines.
MEDISCRUB has been formulated to gently but effectively remove surface dead skin, congestion (esp. around the T-zone) and blackheads –– in a refreshing scent of Rose Geranium and Grapefruit.
|Corundum (Aluminum Oxide) crystals||
Corundum crystals are considered safe because they are non-toxic and does not cause chemical reaction with the skin. Corundum is almost identical to sapphire, one of the hardest materials known (second to Diamond). Sapphires are a form of aluminum oxide. This hardness makes corundum ideal for exfoliation of the top layer of the facial skin to remove dead cells and unblock pores.
The natural anti-bacterial properties of aluminium oxide microdermabrasion crystals make them particularly effective for acne sufferers.
Crystal size is a critical factor in facial scrubs. The crystals are not designed to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, but provide gentle, excellent exfoliation without damage to skin tissue.
