Will Kanapa™ Revitalizing Exfoliating Scrub irritate my sensitive skin?
It is unlikely that your skin will be irritated. We have combined our non-abrasive natural exfoliating ingredients with luxurious natural moisturizers to support sensitive skin even as the product gently removes dead skin cells that can leave skin looking dull and lifeless.
How do I use Kanapa™ Revitalizing Exfoliating Scrub?
Kanapa™ Revitalizing Exfoliating Scrub is not meant to be used daily, but rather in accordance to the following age ranges:
- 25 to 35 - exfoliate once a week
- 35 to 45 - exfoliate twice a week
- 45+ - exfoliate three to four times a week
1. In the evening and on clean skin, using enough cream to cover a quarter, rub the exfoliator into your cheeks, T-zone forehead and chin, taking care to avoid the skin around the eyes.
2. Rub gently in a circular motion for about two minutes.
3. Rinse skin thoroughly with warm water.
4. Follow up with our Restorative Night Cream and Luminous Facial Serum.
What affect may the Revitalizing Exfoliating Scrub have on the pH balance of my skin?
Generally, the more acidic a product is - or the lower its pH, the greater the exfoliating qualities that product has. Obviously, the pH level shouldn't be too acidic as this can irritate or damage the skin instead of helping it. This is a common problem with many toners on the market as well as other chemical-laden cosmetic products.
Kanapa™ Revitalizing Exfoliating Scrub includes kiwifruit extract, which supports a healthy pH level in the skin, as well as the gentle acidity of apple peel to help our natural pumice (sourced from lava rock) remove dead skin cells more effectively, revealing fresh, new skin.
This skin is then able to easily absorb the rich emollient ingredients in the product including shea butter, jojoba butter, avocado oil and grape seed oil which further help to support the skin's healthy pH level.
According to our team of skincare experts, who have years of research experience, a pH of 5 or 6 is ideal for skin.
Why does Kanapa™ Revitalizing Exfoliating Scrub not contain plastic Microbeads?
We are passionate about our oceans and ocean life; Microbeads, when used in exfoliants, are washed down the drain into the water supply. Plastic Microbeads can persist in the environment for more than 100 years and have been found to contaminate a wide variety of freshwater and marine wildlife globally.

Can Kanapa™ Revitalizing Exfoliating Scrub be used on other parts of my body?
Yes. Other parts of the body like the arms and chest may be damaged and exfoliating the area may leave the skin more smooth and healthy.
What is the benefit of using natural exfoliants compared to other products that use chemical peels?
Chemicals are harsh, and in some cases poisonous, and when they're absorbed into the skin, they can enter the bloodstream, having the potential to cause a range of negative effects. We use only the best and most natural ingredients to ensure that our products are the safest available. Beauty starts from within, and can only be supported by the highest quality ingredients.
Will Kanapa™ Revitalizing Exfoliating Scrub dry my skin, as some other scrubs tend to do?
No, it should not dry your skin, as we have ensured to include a number of rich and nourishing moisturisers. Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil are included to moisturize and soothe the skin - while most exfoliators require you to cleanse your skin first and moisturize afterwards; our exfoliating scrub cleans and moisturizes with its rich emollient to leave a layer of nourishing moisturisation following the treatment.
Does Kanapa™ skincare contain any mineral oils?
None of our products contain mineral oils. Mineral oils can clog the pores, interfere with skin's ability to eliminate toxins, and encourage breakouts. We use nourishing plant-based oils which nourish the skin without aggravating acne.
Does Kanapa™ skincare contain any parabens?
No, all of our skincare products are paraben and PBA free.
