If you’re new to using an Oil Cleanser, it might feel unusual for your skin to feel hydrated and dewy after cleansing, but this is exactly what our oil cleanser is designed to do – remove makeup and impurities, while leaving a healthy and hydrating lipid profile.
If you are cleansing in the shower, I recommend cooling the water temperature slightly to cleanse your face compared with the heat you’re likely using on your body.
Clinical Testing and Ingredients
Our formulations focus on the physiology of the skin, determining how multiple ingredient combinations can work in synergy with each other to deliver superior results.
Developed by scientists and physiologists with over 100 years combined experience, our formulas are engineered with up to 25 meticulously chosen ingredients that are individually efficacious, but in combination work to amplify each other to provide next generation results. The most powerful way to interact with the skin is naturally, therefore we only use natural ingredients, harnessing both bio-identical ingredients found within the skin as well as the specialised, scientifically proven natural plant extracts. These bio-active ingredients work in harmony with the skin to trigger powerful cellular responses that deliver unparalleled results.
While our formulation is 100% natural, naturally derived and nature identical, we recommend doing a patch test or consulting your medical practitioner before using any new skincare product, particularly if you have sensitive skin or allergies.
