Facial Scrub contain Natural/Synthetic exfoliant give exfoliation effect remove dead cell etc. In this study; formulation and development of Face Scrubs using Natural exfoliant (Jojoba meal) and Synthetic exfoliant (Polyethylene Beads) in concentration 1%, 1.5% and 2%. Comparative study between Scrubs with Natural and Synthetic exfoliant was did for exfoliation effect. Scrub evaluated for Stability Study at Room temp (27°C), Cold temp (4°C) and accelerated temp (45°C), Spreadability and Total Fatty Matter (TFM) content. Subject test on 20 healthy volunteers was done to examine Skin irritation and dead cell removal property of scrub. Dead cell removal property studied by Tape Stripping method. Both Face Scrubs found stable in stability study. Scrubs also passed the Spreadability and Total Fatty Matter (TFM) content test. On basis of subject study and tape stripping method; Face scrub with Synthetic exfoliant i.e. Polyethylene Beads in 2% concentration shows better exfoliation effect which is useful for oily skin.
