Nectar 101: The Natural Magic of Volcanic Pumice

Mother Nature provides an incredible array of tools that can play vital roles in our go-to beauty and skincare products. One of our faves is volcanic pumice, an unsung hero that’s been around for centuries but is making a modern comeback in the world of beauty. If you haven't heard of pumice before, get ready to fall in love with this unique, effective, and eco-friendly ingredient that transforms standard hand soap into an effective yet gentle exfoliating experience.

What is Volcanic Pumice?

Volcanic pumice is a type of volcanic rock that forms when lava cools rapidly, trapping gas bubbles inside. This process results in a light, porous stone with a rough texture—perfect for gentle exfoliation. Pumice stones have been used for thousands of years for various purposes, from smoothing out rough skin to polishing surfaces. We use a light powder that’s very finely ground and add it to our luxuriously moisturizing hand wash to give your skin that extra bit of TLC it deserves.

The Magic of Exfoliation

We’ve talked about the importance of exfoliation in the past, but it’s worth revisiting. Exfoliation is a key step in any skincare routine, and for good reason. Our skin constantly regenerates, shedding dead skin cells to make way for new ones. However, sometimes these dead cells can linger, leading to dull, rough, and uneven skin. Regular exfoliation helps to remove these cells, revealing the fresh, glowing skin underneath.

Here’s why exfoliation, especially with pumice-infused hand soap, is so beneficial:

  • Smoother Skin: By sloughing off dead skin cells, exfoliation leaves your hands feeling incredibly smooth and soft. It’s especially helpful for areas that tend to get rough, like your palms and knuckles.
  • Improved Absorption: Exfoliating helps to unclog pores and remove barriers to skin absorption. This means that any moisturizers or serums you apply afterward can penetrate deeper and work more effectively.
  • Preventing Buildup: Regular use of pumice-infused soap helps prevent the buildup of dead skin cells, keeping your skin clean and clear.

Why Choose Pumice in your Hand Soap?

Why is volcanic pumice an ideal ingredient for your hand soap? Glad you asked…

  • Natural and Eco-Friendly: Pumice is a natural, sustainable resource. Unlike plastic microbeads, which have been banned in many places due to their environmental impact, pumice is eco-friendly and biodegradable.
  • Gentle Yet Effective: Despite its rough texture, pumice is surprisingly gentle on the skin. When finely ground and incorporated into soap, it provides effective exfoliation without being too abrasive, making it suitable for everyday use.
  • Rich in Minerals: Pumice contains minerals that can be beneficial for the skin. While its primary role is exfoliation, these minerals can also help nourish your skin.
  • Versatile: Pumice-infused hand soap is great for all skin types. Whether your skin is dry, oily, or somewhere in between, the gentle exfoliating action helps maintain a balanced, healthy complexion.

How To Use Exfoliating Hand Wash

Use it just like your regular hand soap, but enjoy the added benefits of exfoliation. Lather up, massage gently into your skin, and rinse off.

For best results, follow up with a nourishing body butter or hand cream to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated and supple.
