Aluminum hydroxide crystals (just like the dermatologists use in dermabrasion treatments)are suspended in a semi soft soap base. Perfume free to avoid any adverse reactions as you gently exfoliate and expose new skin. Gives the skin a fresh, buffed appearance. Apply gently once a week with a facial cloth or fingertips and expand to twice a week use - more often if your skin shows former traces of acne or other scarring. Apply a sunscreen before any sun exposure after use. Comes packaged in a two ounce lined cosmetic jar.
