A gentle, oil-based balm for everyday cleansing and makeup removal.

This soap-free cleanser dissolves impurities both on the skin surface and deep within pores while simultaneously moisturizing the skin. The addition of water turns the oil-based mixture into a luxurious creamy white lather that washes away makeup, dirt, and grime. A blend of several oils chosen for their superior cleansing abilities removes, refreshes, and replenishes for a uniquely balancing clean.

The stars of this product are hemp seed and neem oils; hemp seed oil is high in linoleic acid, completely non-comedogenic, and great for reducing the appearance of pores, while neem oil removes bacteria from the skin surface and prevents break-outs. Jojoba oil helps to level out natural oil production, castor oil acts as a natural astringent, and olive oil simultaneously cleans and nourishes the skin, restoring moisture and elasticity. Finally, creamy mango butter acts as a powerful emollient to soften the skin without clogging pores, and rose floral wax lightly scents the blend without irritating eyes.

Suitable for all skin types. Can also be used as an intensive moisturizer - just massage a small amount onto dry skin, focusing on areas that need extra moisture.

This is an amazing product. It does an amazing job at gently removing makeup and leaving your skin feeling fresh and moisturized. It’s great for sensitive skin. Totally worth it because a little goes a long way. I also received a sample of the face oil which is also amazing and will probably be ordering. Thank you for making such wonderful high quality products!

I first want to say, OMG. Seriously, you have converted me into a client. I am obsessed with your emulsifying balm. It’s so gentle and removed all my makeup. I have totally loved using it this last week. I’ve never used anything like it before, truly blown away.

Ok. So I am sold 100% on the cleansing balm. I just wore a full face (liquid eyeliner, highlighter, blush, and lipstick) and I used it and wiped with a muslin. My god! No effort and my skin felt clean without feeling stripped. I use it daily but today I was like ‘Damn that is awesome.’

It absolutely is SO unique!!!! I can’t say enough positive about it. It’s my new ‘forever skin cleanser.’ I’ll never go back to anything else!! I love it.
