Exfoliating Agent

An exfoliating agent eliminates dead cells from the skin’s surface. There are exfoliating creams specially formulated for body skin. Exfoliating agents may also be added to anti-dandruff shampoos, which will help eliminate dandruff. The verb exfoliate is thus synonymous with desquamate.
