Nia24 - Physical Cleansing Scrub
Prod. Code: Nia24 - Physical Cleansing Scrub
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the exfoliating ingredient in the Physical Cleansing Scrub and will it tear my skin?
The exfoliating action comes from the Pro-Niasomes™ which are Jojoba Beads encapsulated with Pro-Niacin™. As they exfoliate the skin, they break apart, releasing Pro-Niacin™ for absorption into the skin. The spherical beads found in the NIA 24™ Physical Cleansing Scrub do not have jagged edges and therefore do not tear the skin.
When can I expect to see results from using the NIA 24™ products?
Improvements in tone, texture and brightness can usually be seen within the first several weeks, though individual results may vary. Depending on the degree of sun damage, improvements in sun damage and hyperpigmentation can take up to six months.
What is the origin of Jojoba Beads?
Jojoba is a shrub native to the desert and is used fairly frequently in cosmetics as a moisturizer and carrier oil, as it is easily refined to be odorless, colorless, and oxidatively stable. The beads within the Physical Cleansing Scrub are Jojoba Beads encapsulated with Pro-Niacin™ and thus, are known as Pro-Niasomes™.
Will the particles in the Physical Cleansing Scrub tear down the Skin Barrier that the NIA 24™ products are trying to build?
No, the Physical Cleansing Scrub is washing away dead skin cells, not the skin barrier and the spherical beads do not tear the skin. The mechanical action of this physical scrub is also increasing the cell turnover rate, revealing newer skin.
Can the Physical Cleansing Scrub be used in combination with chemical exfoliates (AHAs and BHAs)?
Yes. You may find that the efficacy of the NIA 24™ products enables you to reduce the amount of AHA’s or BHA’s that you are using while still achieving the same result and minimizing irritation and potential sensitivity to the sun.
Can you use the Physical Cleansing Scrub immediately after surgeries or skin rejuvenation therapies such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion?
No. Based on the severity of the procedure, allow the skin 2-3 weeks recovery time prior to re-introducing the Physical Cleansing Scrub. Use of the other NIA 24™ should be tolerated by the skin. However, should redness occur, apply a cold compress to the skin and reduce application of the NIA 24™ products for several days.
Why do you recommend using the Physical Cleansing Scrub only 2-3 times per week?
The objective of using a scrub or exfoliant is to keep the skin free of dead skin build-up, and prime the skin for more optimal use of other products. Using the Physical Cleansing Scrub 2-3 times per week is all that is necessary.
Will the Physical Cleansing Scrub remove my makeup?
No. The Gentle Cleansing Cream was formulated for make-up removal while the Physical Cleansing Scrub is better for assisting in the exfoliation process of the skin.
Can you use the Physical Cleansing Scrub by itself to cleanse the face and neck?
Yes. The Physical Cleansing Scrub contains surfactants that will help cleanse the face while assisting with exfoliation as well.
