I have been obsessed with volcanic ingredients since Armani released their Crema Nera. The Armani cream was inspired by the thermal baths at Lago Specchio di Venere and his vacation home on Pantelleria . The ingredients are silicon, iron, sodium, and potassium. These ingredients mimic obsidian, a mineral produced by the island's volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago.
I tested the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. This is a combination of ash and sugar. It smells like olives and earth. The texture is clay-like with small sugar granules. It did not foam or lather but was 1000 times easier to work with than a traditional clay body product. It rinsed off easily with just water. That was impressive to me. I expected that I would have to scrub my skin down due to the ink-like darkness of the product.
Besides the fantastic results, this product can boast a great price.
