Yahoo News: Criticisms of Walnut Scrub

Style and beauty icon Kylie Jenner is launching a new walnut scrub, but experts are criticising the product and say it could actually harm the skin. 

The walnut scrub is part of a new skincare range which is due to launch 22nd May, but it has attracted controversy already.

Kylie calls the walnut face scrub ‘my secret to a fresh face’ and of course photos of her perfect skin are likely to attract fans and buyers keen to emulate her looks.

However, the concern is that the exfoliant ingredient walnut powder is very harsh. The feature says:

It causes everything from broken capillaries to dryness, according to critics.

Founder of Cosmedics Skin Clinics, Dr Ross Perry, was asked to give his expert advice. He explains:

“Walnut shell powder has a reputation of being a relatively harsh exfoliator on the skin, and although exfoliating is a great way of getting rid of dead skin cells and unclogging pores, all skin types are different, therefore, harsh exfoliating ingredients can actually end up tearing the skin.

“With any abrasive products the more sensitive the skin the gentler one needs to be so there is not a one for all cream that will suit everyone. For some this may help but for others it maybe too harsh and that’s down to each individual’s skin type.

“Unfortunately because Kylie Jenner sports such flawless skin 24/7 and is a key influencer today, many of fans will buy into the product in the bid to emulate Kylie’s perfect visage, However this won’t suit everyone and could in fact end up causing irritation and tearing.”
