6 Exfoliation Solutions to Rev-up Your Services

Herbology from Bioelements

Incredibly versatile, the dual-action Chinese herbal granules in Bioelements Herbology can be used from head-to-toe: they’re the everywhere-exfoliator.

“How can I re-energize and rev-up my spa menu services?” It’s a question I often hear from spa professionals. And this time of year, exfoliation is my answer. Clients are searching for solutions for dry, aging skin, breakouts, clogged pores and sluggish skin. Exfoliation can help with each one.

But not just any exfoliator. Of course, you already have separate physical and chemical exfoliators, which can help shed dead cells as they get trapped on the skin’s surface. My total- service solution is a completely unique, ancient technique that harnesses both physical and chemical exfoliation in one single action.

Give your services a jump-start with Bioelements cult-favorite, Herbology. Incredibly versatile, these dual-action Chinese herbal granules can be used from head-to-toe: they’re the everywhere-exfoliator.

Herbology is comprised of four Chinese herbs that provided both physical and natural chemical exfoliation. The granules are moved across the skin with an oil-based formula to provide a physical exfoliation, then dissolve and melt into skin when water is introduced, releasing natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).

Bioelements Chinese Herbology has the following benefits.

  • Provides dual physical and natural chemical exfoliation.
  • Water-soluble granules dissolve on contact in creams or water-based gels.
  • Granules stay firm and will not dissolve in oil.
  • Granules "melt" into the skin, releasing natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).

Use Bioelements Herbology in six ways: in a facial, as a Fast Results back treatment; as a body polish; and in microtreatments on the hands, feet and elbows. With 40 scoops in a jar, a little goes a long way, reinvigorating your entire service menu.

Ready to see how Herbology is the single-product solution to rev up all your services, and exfoliate from neck-to-toes?
