Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous earth is a powder of fossilized remains of microalgae called diatoms. It contains microscopic diatom frustules mainly made of silicon dioxide (SiO2). It has a low density, high porosity, and hardness so it's able to adsorb microscopic pollutants like activated carbon and mechanically exfoliate dead cells remains.

This natural material used in filters for water purification. In skin care formulations, Diatomaceous earth used in high-end cleansers, exfoliants, and masks to eliminate dead cell remains, remove allergens, and pollutants and prepare the skin for future treatments.
