Active Exfoliant Powder, an innovative triple-action exfoliant that combines a gentle granular and enxymatic action giving superb results to all skin types.

This unique exfoliatin[27]g powder activates on contact with water[21] and transforms into a frothy-mousse like texture. When gently massaged, the subtle granules eliminate impurities and sweep away dead skin cells, while the enzymatic action intensifies the exfoliatin[27]g effects.

Its mild formulation provides healing, soothing and anti-inflammatory properties making it suitable for daily use.

The G.M. Collin ACTIVE EXFOLIANT Powder:


Slightly tilt the bottle and carefully dispense the equivalent of one half teaspoon of powder into moist hands.  Add the same amount of water[21] and rub hands together to create a foamy-textured mousse.  Apply to the face and gently massage in circular motion for 1-2 minutes, avoiding the eye area.  Rinse with lukewarm water[21].  Can be used 3 to 4 times a week, and is also suitable for daily use.
