Hi  :)

There are insect pests that can leave shed skins, but they are generally on the undersides of the outer leaves.  Those will rub off fairly easily, but from your post, it reads as if you have hard white lumps within the body of the leaves on your crop ? 

A picture will really help to pin down what it is  :)

There are several causes of white nodules on brassicas and a good site to visit is RHS to see if anything looks similar to what you have. Piccie please..
