Made in Turkey from 100% natural fibres – silk, loofah and/or date fibres, these mitts provide the best in dry or wet exfoliation!  By using these washable mitts, you eliminate the need for exfoliating creams, scrubs, gels etc. and the plastic jar they usually come in.  The Kese is the easiest, cheapest and most effective way to promote healthy skin. You will be amazed how well this little mitt works!

In Turkey, the ritual Hammam or Turkish baths, a remnant from the Ottoman Empire, are a way of life and community bonding. After rinsing oneself by pouring purified water from marble basins and drying off on a heated marble slab, Hammam attendants scrub you down with a “kese”, a dry mitt that scrubs off old superfluous skin, and then give you a soap massage that leaves your skin smooth and clean of impurities.

Not for those with severe skin irritation (acne, rash, eczema, open sore/cut, etc.

Here are just some of the benefits:

  • Scrub off dead skin, promote cell renewal
  • Improve Cellulite
  • Clean pores from sweat, oil and dirt
  • Enhance blood circulation
  • Stimulate nerve endings to rejuvenate the nervous system
  • Unclog hair follicles and reduce ingrown hair
  • Attain a healthy glow
  • Achieve taut skin

The Kese can be used for Dry Brushing or Wet Exfoliation:

Dry Brushing

Dry skin brushing effectively opens and cleans the pores on your skin. Your skin should be dry, so the ideal time is in the shower before you turn on the water. Don’t get the Mitt wet. For best results, brush at least 2 times per week.

Directions: Slip your hand into the Kese and wrap wrist with the strap. Brush towards the heart, making long sweeps. Avoid back and forth, scrubbing and circular motions. Start at your feet, moving up the legs on both sides, then work from the arms toward your chest. On your stomach, brush counter-clockwise. Steer clear of delicate skin such as chest and face. Do this gently in the beginning as your body is not yet used to it. Skin should be stimulated and invigorated but not irritated or red. Rinse off and shower. Since the pores are open and clear, use only a natural body soap (any EarthSplash soap will work). However, it isn’t necessary to use soap after dry brushing since your skin will be clean.

Wet Exfoliation:

Directions: Hydrate your body for approximately 5 minutes in a hot shower or steam room. It’s important for your entire body to be warm and moist before using this mitt. Lather up with any EarthSplash soap. Slip your hand into the Kese and wrap wrist with the strap. Begin from the toes and work upwards. You can use circular motions or up and down. Do this gently in the beginning as your body is not yet used to it. Skin should be stimulated and invigorated but not irritated or red. Rinse off.

Care Instructions

After use, rinse the mitt thoroughly and allow it to air dry.  Replace it every 6-8 months to maintain effectiveness. To extend the life of the mitt, use natural soap only.
