Natural and Biodegradable Alternative to Plastic Beads

The Story

When the need to replace plastic micro particles with eco-friendly beads impacted the market, Kemin responded with XFoliPEARL: a biodegradable, plant-based and natural exfoliating bead that provides advantages compared to other natural alternatives available on the market.

Kemin developed XFoliPEARL with its proprietary spray freezing technology that results in consistency in the size and smoothness of each bead. The high-melting point wax results in robust beads that remain stable in aqueous gels and emulsions.

XFoliPEARL offers an easy-to-use solution for customers without sacrificing the performance of their products, while providing the benefits of its natural origins.
