Essentials Face Cleanser and Scrubs

Facial Cleanser and Skin Repair
Most mainstream face cleansing products strip away natural  oils from our skin, leaving our largest organ trying to repair itself by replacing the oil stripped away. This leaves us in a cycle of being tight and dry followed by our skin becoming oily. Each time we strip the oil away, our skin over-compensates for the lack of moisture by creating more oil.  This taxes the skin organ and is not healthy.

Getting right down to basics, when cleansing and moisturizing your skin, it is imperative that you keep in mind that oil dissolves oil. Do not be afraid of applying oil to your face. Oil, alone, will not bring you blemishes. It actually benefits your skin, allowing your largest organ to function properly. Oil is naturally occurring. Learning to work with your skin, not against it, will save you tremendous time and effort.

The basic concept of this skin care and cleansing method is that the oil used to massage your skin will dissolve the oil that has hardened with impurities and found itself stuck in your pores. Hot water will open your pores, allowing the oil to be easily removed. Should you need it, the smallest drop of the same oil formula patted over damp skin will provide the necessary lubrication to keep your skin from over-compensating in oil production.

Apricot Scrub

A gentle facial exfoliant, formulated using a whipped moisture cream base and adding finely ground apricot seed. Excellent for removing excess oils and dry skin cells while supplying moisture to the face. A gentle facial scrub is often a good idea in an acne treatment regimen.

Bridging the gap between body, mind and soul​

Brown Sugar and Vanilla Scrub

This recipe has the consistency of stiff cookie dough, (not loose and oily like most scrubs) due to a base of shea and cocoa butters rather than liquid oils. This scrub can be used on dry hands and feet several times a day and on my face at night, as well as in the shower. 

Whipped Moisturizing Cream

This is an “everything” lotion.  Use it head to foot for all your dry skin problems. Safe to use facially. Great under make-up. We have combined the rich emollient quality of palm and coconut with liquid oils to absorb into the skin quickly.
