Once sugar is exposed to water it begins to dissolve, hence it is by far the gentlest exfoliating ingredient. Within minutes it is gone, yet while active it very gently removes dull and dead skin cells, finely polishing your skin as it is exfoliating in one single step. The sugars are infused with rich, healthy fixed and essential oils and natural sea kelp (a well recognized ingredient in support of healthy skin). It leaves skin soft, supple and renewed, its olive foundation naturally moisturizes. Now that's three steps in one.
