Food for thought
It's best to avoid high-foaming soaps and detergents on facial skin. Soap with any free alkali will saponify all oil on your skin, leaving it dried out. This is bad news for both dry and oily skin, which will either battle to recover a healthy sebum level, or rush to over compensate by becoming oiler.
Harsher exfoliators such as salt or sugar crystals, and hard substances such as ground up nut shells, are also best avoided on the face. They can cause irritation and redness along with micro tears.
Our Facial Polishes are extremely gentle yet powerful cleansers that won't dry out your skin. They clean effectively while at the same time replenishing and pampering. The softly textured product provides such gentle exfoliation that it can be used every day. Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory volcanic clay and raw honey help sooth and diminish a range of potential skin problems, while oils replenish the skin.
Marine Mint has a focus on younger and oilier skin but suits a broad range of skins and is excellent at clearing blockages and balancing oil production. Peppermint, spirulina and hemp work together to heal and soothe acne, provide a rich source of antioxidants and refresh the skin. Castor oil is deeply cleansing while also helping to prevent aging, while beautifully light grapeseed oil helps dissolve blockages to clear the pores. It can be used night and morning or alternated with Cookie Dough Facial Polish.
