Fact: Oil dissolves oil. One of the basic principles of chemistry is that “like dissolves like”. By using the right kind of oil, you can effectively, gently and naturally, cleanse your pores of dirt and bacteria, while replacing the ‘dirty oil’ with beneficial ones.
We really considered what plant oils to select for our long-awaited cleanser. Oils that are extracted from natural botanical ingredients with functions to heal, nourish, protect and, most importantly, keep the skin’s natural balance intact were high on our list of priorities when designing our clever new balm. We know that many people can be afraid of applying oil to your face, since oil alone will not produce blemishes.
Oil cleansing methods reveals nourished and and therefore more moisturised skin than traditional soap and foam-based facial cleansers can, leaving skin balanced, clear, glowing and healthy. All too often we strip skin when we clean it, damaging the precious lipid barrier. Our Nourishing Cleansing Balm instantly melts onto skin, gently dissolving dirt and make-up but without harsh astringent action.
We've used shea and organic butters in our balm as plant butters are renowned for their gentle cleansing action; efficiently melting dirt and grime away from the skin without stripping it. They also nourish and condition the skin, help lock in the skin's moisture and deliver a healthy vitamin boost at the same time as cleansing. Dirt and impurities are dissolved and drawn away but without stripping the skin. The result is cleansed skin without that tight, dry feel.
Natural butters also have a beautiful, smooth, creamy consistency and enjoy the transformation from balm to oil whilst your skin is being simultaneously cleansed and nourished.
