Are vanilla beans suitable for an exfoliant in CP? Or do they give off enough vanillinin to cause seizing?

If there’s no scent from it wouldn’t poppy seeds look about the same and be much cheaper? Probly are too large.

For me vanilla bean is about as exfoliating as I want to go.
Cinnamon is beyond exfoliating for my sons - they hate the scratchiness.
Poppy seed would be way too exfoliating for our family.
I think it is a matter of trial and error and preference.
