While developing tools for applying metal working chemicals we found that mildly abrasive tools can also be highly beneficial for cleaning and treating other surfaces such as skin. For example they are suitable for exfoliation, deep cleaning and massage etc., especially when combined with the application of a topical skin lotion.

Specifically we found wetting with shaving soap is improved when applied with a mild abrasive, which reduced shaving friction and provided much improved razor life and a closer shave. We also found improvement in female face shape due to regular subcutaneous exercise while applying moisturisers or other cosmetic formulations with mildly abrasive rubbing, the  benefit being a subtlety younger look.
