Living Cleansing Balm

Step One

Living Cleansing Balm

Our oil cleanser combines a blend of lightweight grape seed, olive and seaberry oils. Hints of rosemary, persimmon and grapefruit make this a sensorial, aromatic experience designed to delight your senses and leave your skin soft and clean.

Seaberry/Sea Buckthorn Oil

Rich in fatty acids such as stearic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, and omega-6. The bright orange coloring is due to high lycopene and carotenoid content. With time the coloring will fade but does not diminish the effectiveness of the cleanser.

Olive Oil

This nourishing antioxidant high in oleic acids and hydrophilic phenols has anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. The combination of olive and seaberry oils helps to restore compromised barriers.

Persimmon Extract

Also known as dispyros kaki, this extract is a free radical scavenger that prevents premature aging and photo damage. It is known for its skin brightening effect by reducing hyperpigmentation, and can also regulate sebum production.

Grape Seed Oil

An antioxidant-rich emollient, this plant oil derived from grape seeds nourishes the skin while removing oil-based impurities gently. It has a high content of linoeleic acid, vitamin E and phenolic compounds, and an anti-inflammatory effect.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an essential component of healthy skin, that prevents premature aging due to its powerful antioxidant properties.
