Bath scrubs in plant fibers promote user health, safety

 

Makers are intensifying use of plant derivatives as these exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin better than the conventional plastic.

 

TOP TRENDS

  • Plant-derived materials: Many makers are turning to natural fibers as these are hypoallergenic, more compatible with the skin and less abrasive than the conventional PP mesh. Loofah has become the input of choice because it exfoliates effectively, and helps improve blood circulation, unclog pores and prevent skin irritation. Sisal and bamboo rayon are also emerging alternatives.
  • Recycled inputs: Manufacturers are employing recycled PET fibers in select releases, which are priced about three times higher than pieces in plastic, microfiber and plant derivatives.
  • Design: Traditional rectangular, oval, round and arched models continue to dominate output. Versions in cartoon, animal, heart and floral themes, and ergonomically designed glove types are available as well.
  • Price projection: Quotes of loofah bath scrubs went up by 10 to 20 percent in the past quarter. Further increases are expected in the months ahead due to rising cost of the material. Prices of variants in microfiber, plastic and sisal, meanwhile, are predicted to stay at current levels.
