Jojoba spheres are tiny, coloured jojoba wax exfoliating beads. They can be used in soap, body and facial washes, shower gels, scrubs and lotion bars. They provide gentle exfoliation which feels great on the skin and their attractive colours will make your products stand out from the rest. These spheres won't scratch delicate skin like other types of exfolients are prone to and they are suitable for those with nut allergies. Try mixing multiple colors for an absolutely gorgeous "confetti" look!
Jojoba beads are completely biodegradable and a renewable source. The beads themselves are natural but the colourants used to give them their colour are synthetic.
When used in M&P and other liquid bases the spheres tend to either float or sink depending on the thickness of your base so we recommend a small trial batch to ascertain how they suit your base.
Recommended usage rates: May be used in formulation from 1% to 15% depending on desired visual effect and aggressiveness of exfoliation. Start with ½ - 1½ tablespoons per 1kg of CP or M&P soap base.
Bead Size: 20/40 (425 to 850 microns). This size provides a safe exfoliation while offering great visual impact.
