DESCRIPTION

QUARTZ EXFOLIANT
Quartz Exfoliant is a natural exfoliating ingredient manufactured from pure quartz crystals a reference of minerals range.

Quartz crystal is used as a gemstone. In ancient Egypt, women wore facial masks carved of quartz to soften and beautify the skin. Quartz can be categorized as one of nature's most energizing minerals. Extremely abrasive, quartz allows an accurate exfoliation. It promotes the regeneration of the skin by smoothing down the epidermis without affecting the hydrolipidic film.

Quartz is a hard, crystalline mineral composed of silicon and oxygen atoms. The atoms are linked in a continuous framework of SiO4 silicon–oxygen tetrahedra, with each oxygen being shared between two tetrahedra, giving an overall chemical formula of SiO2. Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in Earth's continental crust, behind feldspar.

Quartz exists in two forms, the normal α-quartz and the high-temperature β-quartz, both of which are chiral. The transformation from α-quartz to β-quartz takes place abruptly at 573 °C (846 K; 1,063 °F). Since the transformation is accompanied by a significant change in volume, it can easily induce fracturing of ceramics or rocks passing through this temperature threshold.
