Globalnews.com: Experts Discuss Kylie Jenner's Walnut Scrub - May 15, 2019

Kylie Jenner’s new walnut-based face scrub could be dangerous: experts

(Excerpt) Kylie Jenner has announced that she’s expanding her beauty line to include skincare, and one product in particular — the walnut face scrub — is already causing a stir.

Dr. Lisa Kellett, a dermatologist at DLK on Avenue, expresses similar concerns about the scrub and its use of walnut-shell powder.

“The issue is this: not everyone is ideal to use that product and not everyone is ideal to use that product daily,” said Kellett.

“To say that it’s great for everyone… that’s a blanket statement. For some people, it would not be appropriate.”

Ultimately, the effects of this scrub will vary from person to person — but Kellett warns that people with underlying skin diseases should stay away.

“People with a history of eczema or atopic dermatitis… people who have very active acne… this product could irritate them and cause an irritant reaction,” she said.
