    I found a little more info on titanium dioxide here:

    Once you start using the Salux towels you ordered Klimax, I doubt you'll want to use a scrub too anyway.

    I quite like the St Ives, the smell is fruity and it doesn't linger. Which is very important because I don't want the smell to stay with me once I'm out the shower. I believe that's what perfumes are for. There's a massive difference I feel with using a body scrub such as St Ives with my 100% Nylon exfoliating gloves vs a normal body wash shower gel with 100% Nylon exfoliating gloves. The gloves are harsher than Salux so although I haven't used the Salux yet, I don't think it will smoothen out skin as much as gloves with or without a body scrub. The Salux is 60% Polyester and 40% Nylon (regular). A body scrub with a Salux or exfoliating gloves gives a deeper level of exfoliation=softer skin. But we are all different though so how I percieve soft and how u perceive soft is all a matter of opinion, also it could be a gender thing.

    What does this part of text mean (copied from ewg link):
    "Limited evidence of carcinogenicity (only for products that may be aerosolized (airborne)) "

    I know St Ives Body scrub says u shouldn't but I think u should dilute it with water and then it wouldn't be so harsh or abrasive on the skin

    In my experience, gloves do a good job, almost as good as a Salux towel, but need to be replaced much more often. My perception has less to do with gender than actually using something myself prior to having an opinion about how it felt.

    Is Salux better than a microdermabrasion washcloth?

    Only the pomegranate lip stuff!
    (I don't do body scrub).

    The text quoted means that the stuff might be harmful if sniffed a lot in an airborne product, so it shouldn't be a worry incorporated into a liquid product afaik.

    Cool. I'm not using the St Ives anymore. I'm just using pure water. Skin conditions are caused by chemicals and apparently you shouldn't treat it with other chemicals? At least it's faster this way.

    Anyone here use a spacloth? The Salux cloth has been around longer. I don't understand though, the Salux is patented, and so is the spacloth. Can they really be that different that they require individual patents. I'd really like to know what the patents are.
    The spacloth is 50% cotton and 50% nylon. Salux regular is 60% nylon 40% polyester. I would like to know what kind of cotton because I read the normal cotton is bad for skin, egyptian cotton is better.

    ok but using a body cleanser/scrub and not using anything besides water during a shower, i haven't noticed a difference when i apply mosituriser afterwards. It feels the same with or without a body wash/scrub. I think I might also buy a spacloth deluxe. It's made of a different material to Salux.

    My Spa cloth deluxe has arrived. The description is as follows: The exfoliating hybrid washcloth blends pleats of cotton and nylon".

    Spa cloth deluxe is the ultimate in pampering and relaxation. The doubles-sided 50/50 blend of cotton and nylon is better than a loofah, scrub brush and washcloth combined, with a luxurious exfoliating power won't believe. TWO SIDES of patented three-dimensional pleats massage entire body, improving blood circulation and brining a new glow to your complexion. The SpaCloth texture sloughs away dead skin, dirt and grime, revealing healthier, radiant you. Let SpaCloth Deluxe's thick, plush layers caress your skin and wash your cares away; Spa-quality pampering at home. SpaCloth Deluxe- the last bath cloth you'll every buy.

    I have yet to use it, but it does look like a luxury product. My Salux hasn't arrived so I can't test that out yet. But one thing in common is they're both made in Japan.

    ive used spacloth. what i dont get is why is there 2 layers of cloth, one cloth over the over but joined as though there is only one cloth. i dont see the point???

    I'm gonna try Rhassoul Clay. It sounds like good stuff.

    Used rhassoul clay. it leaves your skin ultra smooth and extremely soft. however i cant justify the price. it is so expensive because its a spa quality treatment. as i guy, i'll skip this.

    My salux came, i only used regular one so far but it is miles better than spacloth deluxe. spacloth looks better but on skin contact the salux wins and u can do hand-to-hand scrubbing, whereas in spacloth deluxe u cant. The only thing spacloth deluxe has going for it is that it has a peg where u can hook it up to dry.

    - - - Updated - - -

    got my salux early in the week. I tried both, the super hard seems to dry the skin, i dont notice any big differemce compared to the regular. also the super hard blue colour is purple which is fine for me i guess because i like purple the colour.

    There appears to be a Pure Chimp 'Tell a Friend' reward scheme.

    I think that we may consider ourselves thoroughly told

    Natural scrubs really work for me it is so light and non-irritating. I make my own body scrub at home using some ingredients that is found in my kitchen like sugar and lemon juice. This scrub really helps my skin lighten and clean. I also use honey sometimes because it has a good benefit for the skin.

    For body cleansing for a guy I try to find stuff that doesn't smell to fruity and found Axiom for Men. They have a good cleansing shower gel that gets rid of all the excess oil I have on my skin and leaves it nice a smooth which I love because now in the winter my skin gets really dry so this helps a lot. There body cleaner is called Pearlized Cleansing Gel and I think you guys should check it out.
