dry skin cleanser / 100ml

Think of cleansing dry skin as like restoring an oil painting. You want to clean off grime. You want to restore and rejuvenate. You don't want to strip oil paint or in skin’s case, barrier lipids.

That’s why we designed an oil-based facial balm to delicately cleanse dry skin. Packed with adaptogens to improve elasticity and reduce redness (Arctic Sea Buckthorn), promote cellular renewal (High Altitude Rosehip Oil) and gently exfoliate (Papaya enzymes).

ARCTIC SEA BUCKTHORN

Sourced from the frozen far North and packed with self protective botanicals. Arctic Sea Buckthorn is a bright orange berry that grows in the coastal regions of Eurasia from the Atlantic all the way to China. It thrives in salty and arid terrains where other plants can’t compete. It’s widely used in traditional medicine, and no wonder as these are antioxidant powerhouses packed with omega 3, omega 7, along with 12 times more vitamin C than oranges, and more beta carotene than carrots. Sea Buckthorn oil has multiple benefits when applied to skin, hydrating, boosting elasticity and reducing redness and roughness.

The results: boosts skin elasticity by 25% and reduces the appearance of roughness, redness and irritation.

HIGH ALTITUDE ROSEHIP OIL

Rosehip - the fruit buds on rose bushes after flowering - has been used for its healing properties since ancient times. During WW2 children were given rosehip syrup as part of their rations. Ours comes from the high Andes where adapting to the harsh UV and cold makes these plants especially hardy, and their protective botanicals correspondingly potent. Rosehip oil is rich in bio retinol (see Bidens Pilosa) which benefits ageing skin. As well as omega-3.

The results? Keeps skin nourished and hydrated, reduces the signs of ageing, clinically proven to reduce the appearance of scars.

PAPAYA EXTRACT

Papaya originates in the tropical forests of central America. In those steamy conditions anything so sweet and juicy would tend to be eaten alive by microbes. Papaya evolved an anti-microbial enzyme called Papain. This is so great at breaking down large proteins that chefs have been using it to tenderise meat since Mayan times. Applied to skin, the same fruit enzymes dissolve the bonds that glue dead skin cells to the surface. They work straight away without any rubbing or scrubbing and are hence recommended for exfoliating sensitive skin. The enzyme helps unblock congested skin. The same skin cell shedding also helps skin to age well. As it boosts the skin cells replacement cycle - something that slows down as you get older.

The results? Papaya enzymes boost cellular turnover and reduce pore congestion. They exfoliate the skin without causing signs of irritation and help to reveal healthy skin.
