POWDERWorks was founded to fill a gap in the marketplace for powder & powder based all natural skincare products. In 2010, My wife & I decided to develop a unique brand of powdered skincare products for women, men
& teens. Hence, POWDERWorks was started.
Our idea for the first product came from a powder Leslie had once used that was no longer available. So, they decided to create their own powdered exfoliant as the first of many products to launch POWDERWorks.
With the help of industry and skincare experts, we developed an extraordinary exfoliant with a unique formulation that utilizes a patent pending rolling action process. Our product is clinically tested & gentle enough for all skin types
especially the sensitive skin of most teenagers.
Leslie has sensitive skin and so do our teenage daughters. We wanted a safe but effective treatment her daughters could use on their young healthy skin.
POWDERWorks facial exfoliant is the first in our brand to introduce a new way to achieve clearer, brighter & smoother skin without irritation.
