"I heard baking soda can be used as an exfoliant. Is this true?"

Baking soda is a known neutralizer and may have been used as a form of exfoliation in the past, but with today’s research we are finding that there are better ingredients that will act as a less abrasive physical exfoliant. If the skin is slightly acidic, baking soda might not be the best choice in removing bacteria and congestion.
