It's a non-abrasive, mix-it-yourself exfoliant, that turns creamy when mixed with cleanser, where you're in complete control to feel as smooth, fresh and polished as you'd like, and it doubles as the perfect skin primer too.


  • Size: 50g/1.76oz glass jar

  • Mix-it-yourself ability, non-abrasive granule powder formula

Did you know that as we age the rate at which we produce new skin cells slows down? Pair this natural process with ongoing exposure to environmental pollutants and daily makeup, and our skin evidently becomes susceptible to premature ageing, loss of elasticity, dehydration, flakiness and dullness. Therefore exfoliation is key to polishing dead skin cells, promoting cell regeneration and improving the skin's ability to absorb other helpful skin treatments, serums and ingredients too.

Specifically formulated to polish away dry, rough and dead skin cells while deeply cleaning pores to polish, smooth and brighten your skin, Polished provides the following benefits:

  • Exfoliate and smooth with Rice
    Rice assists to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, reduce the appearance of UV damage and absorb excess oil for smoother and brighter skin.
  • Refine with Clay 
    Clay assists to draw out and absorb excess oil, and refine the skin too, revealing an overall clarified and smoother complexion.
  • Nourish and cleanse with Rose Petals
    Rose Petals assist to nourish and cleanse the skin and act as an exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and as an antioxidant to fight free radicals too.
  • Brighten with Kakadu Plum
    Kakadu Plump, a rich source of vitamin C, assists to brighten skin for a more radiant complexion, protect skin from damage caused by exposure to harmful UV rays and reduce the appearance of redness caused by breakouts. Vitamin C assists to promote collagen formation which reduces signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. With gallic and ellagic acids too, vitamin C also assists to reduce collagen breakdown and prevent early signs of ageing.


Mix half a teaspoon with water or cleanser (we recommend Purified: Purifying Cleanser) and mix in the palm of your hand to create a creamy paste. Massage gently onto damp skin in circular motions for 20 seconds, avoiding eyes.

For optimal results, use twice a week.

NOTE: This product is a mix-it-yourself granule powder. To create a creamy paste we recommend mixing Polished with  Purified: Purifying Cleanser in the palm of your hand to create a creamy paste. You're in complete control with how gentle or deep you'd like to polish your face (we always recommend gentle, but some people can also like the feeling of a deep/coarse scrub).

      Customer Testimonials

      I started using RAWKANVAS and after 3 months I'm so happy with the results. I've lived with breakouts since I was 14. I'm so stoked that I began using RAWKANVAS products because I truly believe they have helped my skin immensely and allow me to feel more confident.


      I’ve had problematic skin since my teenage years into my adulthood and was pregnant when I started RAWKANVAS. The products have helped with my hormonal breakouts as well as brightening my pigmentation left behind by breakouts.
