Sustainable Exfoliation

Many consumers and personal care formulators alike have become aware of the damaging effects Polyethylene Beads have on our environment. This concern has increased the demand for ingredients that come from a natural source while still providing similar exfoliating power as polyethylene beads.

At Vantage, we strive to offer a variety of natural solutions for all your formulation needs. Today, we would like to share ingredients that are great for PE replacement. These are just some of the wide variety of natural exfoliants we have available.

 Jojoba Scrubeads™  (Hydrogenated Castor Oil (and) Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil) are a natural, affordable alternative to polyethylene beads. These beads are created from a combination of castor oil and jojoba wax. Jojoba Scrubeads are ideal for formulations that require higher mixing temperatures, as their melting point is 82-90 C, being above that of a traditional wax sphere. *Biodegradable

Jojoba Spheres™ (Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil) are the premier exfoliant derived from fully hydrogenated jojoba wax in a perfectly spherical shape. These spheres are available in a wide range of colors and sizes. The melting point for these spheres is 68-70 C. *Biodegradable

OFJ™ Spheres (Jojoba Esters) are "Oil-Free Jojoba" (OFJ) spheres. These spheres allow the formulator to get the same great benefit of our Jojoba Spheres without having oil in the name. The melting point for these spheres is 66-70 C.

Lipo® VI (Phytelephas Aequatorialis Seed Powder) is produced by the controlled grinding of the seeds of the Ecuadorian Ivory Palm, Phytelephas aequatoralis. Commonly referred to as vegetable ivory or tagua, this ecologically harvested, sustainable rainforest product, traditionally used for carvings and buttons, is a unique exfoliating ingredient. Lipo® VI is available in two mesh sizes.
