Ditch your soapy face wash and replace it with our oil face wash. Unlike soapy cleansers, this oil face wash is both gentle and nourishing, and it protects your skin’s natural moisture.
The days when we used harsh soapy skin cleansers are long gone! Try our lovely, gentle Apricot + Rose Geranium Oil. It’s a wonderful mix to cleanse your skin beautifully and preserve your skin’s natural oils at the same time.
Apricot oil is a super sustainable oil that is light in colour and cold pressed from apricot kernels. It’s rich in fatty acids (oleic acid 58-75% and linoleum acid 25-30%), which helps to maintain the skin’s natural moisture balance. Its properties resemble the ones of almond oil, however unlike almond oil, apricot oil is good for the planet. Rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits.
Apricot oil is suitable for sensitive skin. It soothes and protects it by providing a thin barrier against irritants.
The oil softens and calms the skin, and makes it more elastic. Additionally, it helps with UV damage and evens out the skin.
We also added a little castor oil to better remove any impurities.
PS. This oil batch comes with a pump, not a pipette (as pictured).
Rose Geranium comes with beautiful toning, antibacterial and balancing properties. It smells like heaven and helps the skin glow.
This oil is an excellent choice for those suffering from chronic skin dryness, psoriasis and eczema.
How to use:
Wet your face, place 3-5 drops on your palm and massage it onto your skin. Make sure you massage the oil in really well, melting the impurities away.
Take a damp cloth and remove the oil. You may have to rinse the cloth a few times, whilst wiping your skin clean.
If you are wearing a lot of makeup, we recommend a “double cleanse”. Wash your face first with a gentle face wash and then follow up with the oil face wash. This way, you won’t strip too much natural moisture from your skin.
Q: What’s a double cleanse?
If your skin is very dirty, for example, if you are wearing a heavy makeup, you may have to “double cleanse”.
It means you may have to use your usual face wash first, to remove the dirt and then follow with an oil cleanse to bring the natural oils back to your skin. Soap strips natural oils from the face, so it’s important to bring the moisture back.
