Try some of these small tapioca pearls in your facial scrub or melt & pour soap base for a gentle exfoliant and skin softening experience!
I think these work especially well with oatmeal based recipes. Try adding a blend of the two into melt & pour soap base, or add them together into liquid soap ... making an astringent (oatmeal) and skin softening (tapioca pearls) balance! You can also blend the two into a skin "tea" for the bath tub by adding them into a muslin or other cloth bag, and dropping it into your bath tub. Please note that the more water your recipe containes, the pearls will eventually melt & expand. All is not lost though, its a very skin soothing additive ... just note that adding them to the least amount of water possible, will help retain them as "pearls."
