BOA is a naturally-driven, smart and highly effective exfoliant that cleans and minimises the pores, exfoliates, smooths and moisturises the skin in one simple application.
Unlike chemical or physical exfoliants which can create microscopic tears in your skin's surface, BOA distinguishes between your dead and healthy skin cells by gently 'picking up' ONLY your dead cells and impurities. Think of it Iike a 'lint roller' for the skin.
Apply your BOA Smart Natural Exfoliant directly onto slightly wet skin and massage in. Your dead cells will form into ball-like particles as you massage. More 'balls' of dead cells will form until all the dead cells have been removed.
Want proof BOA has removed all of your dead cells? Try BOA a second time on the same patch of skin. The ‘balling’ effect will be minimal or you may get none at all.
Why do you need BOA? BOA will improve the cellular renewal of your skin, allowing it to regain a uniform tone and texture. You will experience a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and visible pores, smoother, healthier and cleaner skin, bringing your natural beauty to the surface and resulting in an even, glowing complexion.
As BOA only removes the dead cells, BOA will have its own relationship with each person. The amount of 'balling' will vary on different parts of your body, depending on your skin's needs and the amount of dead cells you have. Take the time to learn about your skin and make using BOA a ritual.
Your BOA stick should last you between 6 and 8 months (based on an average use of 1-2 times per week).
We are so confident you'll love BOA. Read more about our BOA Promise 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
- BOA works best when you have minimal make-up on. (Make-up can act as a film, sometimes reducing the effectiveness of BOA)
- Make sure your face is slightly wet for BOA to work its magic!
- Push up on the bottom of the BOA stick, and then gently apply the product directly onto your face
- Start massaging the product into your skin in a back and forth motion
- After a little while, you will start feeling rice shaped particles under your fingertips - these are your dead skin cells and exfoliation has been activated. Keep massaging and more will form.
- Particles don't form on some areas of your face? If all you feel is the smooth product being massaged into your skin, you're all good. Only healthy skin here, which needs to stay put.
- Stop feeling the particles as you massage BOA into your skin? You're done!
- Now that your exfoliation is done, while some people like the moisturised feel of jojoba on their skin, others prefer to rinse BOA off with a gentle cleanser and apply their own moisturiser.

For the more detail-oriented amongst us, here is a list of exactly what we have used in our products.
Calcium Carbonate (natural mineral) | Kaolin (natural mineral) | Aqua (water), Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil (emollient) | Simmondsia Chinensis (jojoba) Butter (natural moisturizing factor) | Magnesium Stearate (imparts smooth feel) | Myristyl Alcohol and Myristyl Glucoside (emollient) | 1.2 Octanediol | 2-Phenoxyethanol (widely used and globally approved safe preservative) | Tetrasodium EDTA (chelating agent)
Calcium Carbonate is a natural mineral that acts as an absorbent of impurities.
Kaolin is a naturally occurring clay mineral (silicate of aluminum) used in cosmetics for its absorbent properties.
Jojoba oil is an essential fatty acids from the jojoba plant, broken down by water to form a new complex. Jojoba esters function as skin-softening agents.
Jojoba butter is similar to one of the natural substances that you have in your upper layer of skin. It helps keep your skin smooth, hydrated and healthy-looking. Topical application helps reinforce skin’s surface so skin takes on a younger, well-nourished appearance.
NMFs (Natural Moisturizing Factors) make up an expansive group of ingredients that include amino acids, lactic acid, sodium PCA, various sugars and minerals, and peptides. Together with the naturally occurring lipids in skin (examples would be ceramides, cholesterol, and glycosaminoglycans), NMF’s work to keep skin’s surface intact and supple.
Myristyl alcohol (not a real alcohol) is a lighter-weight fatty alcohol that functions as a thickener, emulsion stabilizer, and emollient. This gives the product a very nice feel when you use it with water.
Phenoxyethanol is a widely used synthetic preservative that has global approval for use in all cosmetic products in concentrations up to 1%. It works in a large range of formulas and pH ranges, has broad spectrum activity against many pathogens you don’t want multiplying in your skincare products. It is stable and compatible with many other preservatives used in cosmetics. It is purified before it is used in cosmetic formulations and is used at a very low concentration in the product to assure the safety of the product under various use conditions.
EDTA is a chelating agents are used to prevent minerals present in formulation from bonding to other ingredients. Used at a very low amount.
Love boa so much and would recommend it to friends and family. If I had to stay something I would like different is the packaging as it scratches really easily and doesn’t look nice for long. Other than that it is amazing!!!!
LOVE the Boa stick!
I absolutely love BOA, and don’t think I’ll ever use a anything else to exfoliate my face. It has quickly become one of my favourite products in my skincare routine. I use it 1-2 times per week depending on the condition of my skin. There’s nothing else like it on the market - it’s gentle, and you can see and feel it working. After using BOA, my skin glows and looks noticeably fresh. I definitely recommend BOA to anyone and everyone.
This is hands down the best product I have ever used on my skin and I have tried almost everything! My skin is very sensitive and also congested so it's so hard to find something that is gentle enough but this exfoliant does the job without any irritation. My skin feels ridiculously smooth and looks so much healthier, it is the best feeling finding a product that actually does something!
I absolutely loved this no harshness to skin. My skin felt absolutely amazing I would highly recommend
Best invention ever!
This product is amazing! My skin is super sensitive but BOA is gentle, yet super exfoliating - its honestly works like a dream! Best purchase ever!
Just love that silky feeling
I could just use this for all over but now the skin is drinking up the serums and now clean and soft ! My skin is glowing and radiant .. I've noticed it's less thick but am still more layers to shed and will keep up the weekly or when I feel inclined to remove and shed the dead skin. Great product !
OH MY GOSH! I am fully blown away! BOA is amazing! My skin has honestly never felt better. My face feels so clean and is just glowing after the first use. I haven't even needed to add a moisturiser as my face feels so soft and hydrated. I am so so happy and 100% recommend!
I thought I was exfoliating until I used this little stick... I have used it 3 day snow and my 62 year old skin feels amazing... so soft. Thankyou so much for this product
I bought this product for the first time...amazing. I have regular micro at my salon. I won't be any more boa has left my skin fresh soft and brighter ..love it . Thankyou for a great product would highly recomnend
I just love this product, I use all natural products and this is one of my favourites, my skin feels so clean and soft afterwards. I have been using it for about 6 months and one of my favourite things is how well it cleans all of the residue from thick natural sunscreen I use in summer, thanks BOA Skincare!
