Hi, if you look at the video in the "experience" section and then search for skin care collections you'll see the explanation about what exactly the active soil complex is. They did not mention exfoliating effects...but BE does have an impressive exfoliating cleanser that would achieve the exfoliation you are looking for.

A few of the exfoliants I see in this product are kaolin, starch from rice and tapioca, as well as lemon peel. Kaolin clay and the starches perform a double duty as they have been known to absorb excess oil from the skin. You also get mother natures's skin soothing, anti-aging, and antioxidant properties of essential oils and plant extracts plus the added benefits of Active Soil Complex.
Most of all, makes this product extraordinary is that you can customize its application according to your need. You may reduce the amount of water you use according to the amount of exfoliation you need. Less water means more exfoliation. For morning cleansing, I wet my face and hands, place a small dollop of powder on my palm and with my other wet hand, add some more water until its like a wet paste then apply it to my face. For evening, I only add 2-4 drops of water keeping it at a pastey powdery consistency for more exfoliating. After each use, with skin feeling soft and renewed, I follow it with the Purely Nourishing Mousturizer and treat any potential and current breakouts with Blemish Therapy. And, along with PrimeTime creating an even smoother canvas for my morning BareMinerals makeup regimen.

I don't know what the exfoliating components are, but when I use the purifying cleanser at night and the exfoliating cleanser in the morning. When I wash with both products, I add natural, unbleached sugar to them to help with the exfoliating. It seems to get the dead skin off much better than the cleansers themselves.
The Exfoliating cleanser is different from the purifying due to the texture. Purifying is more gentle where as the exfoliating is one where you can choose the consistancy. Exfoliating does not mean that it is supposed to tingle or anything like that but because the exfoliating is more rough it is helping to exfoliate and remove all the dirt in your pores. The active soil complex itself is not meant to exfoliate but it is to help promote healthy cell turn over which is why it is good to have in any cleanser or skin care routine. It also helps feed your body nutrients and anti oxidents in levels greater than a blue berry or pomegranit. The best thing I have found in the exfoliating cleanser is making a mask out of it and letting it dry to your face so you can let your body soak in all those wonderful nutrients your body needs.
