Karuishi Pumice Stone

Natural diatomaceous earth exfoliator

It is used as soil for bonsai trees but this is not the only thing the Japanese do with diatomaceous earth, the soft natural rock that contains the fossilized remains of a hard shell species of microscopic algae called diatoms: thanks to its granularity and abrasiveness, diatomaceous earth can be used for everything from toothpaste to metal polishing substances, and is also suitable for skin-scrubbing. And if it's high quality, like the diatomaceous earth used for the Karuishi Pumice Stone, it completely removes the dead cells and rejuvenates your skin!

Despite the name, the 67 x 47 mm (2.6 x 1.9") Karuishi Pumice Stone is not made of actual pumice but of Japanese diatomaceous earth, so it has all the abrasive properties plus a finer grain that makes it gentler on the skin. It absorbs water as well as bad odors and comes with a string that you can use as a wrist strap when exfoliating, or as a loop for hanging the stone when you are done. And to be perfectly safe, it contains no asbestos whatsoever.
