Lipo® VI is the ground and sized material from the seeds of the Ecuadorian Ivory Palm, Phytelephas aequatorialis. Commonly referred to as vegetable ivory or tagua, this ecologically harvested and sustainable rainforest product traditionally used for carvings and buttons, is a unique exfoliating ingredient. It is an ivory colour. The particles are in the range of 200 to 500 or 50 to 250 microns in size, suitable for face and body exfoliation.

Lipo's range of natural exfoliants offer an alternative to polyethelyne beads which are coming under increasing pressure from an environmental point of view. Online petitions such as this one demonstrate the growing public opinion on the topic.
