Product Spotlight - Gentle Renewing Facial Cleanser

 

Your skin care regimen plays a significant role in your skin's long term health and beauty.  The natural skin care movement is becoming a force all its own as more and more people rediscover healthy ingredients that have been used for generations to heal and renew in a way that our bodies and skin recognize as biocompatible.  Our natural, holistic skin care is about providing earth-derived nutrients to enrich skin with regenerating, healing elements to clarify, renew, soothe, promote radiance, elasticity, and overall skin health - gently.  Read on to learn more about the beneficial ingredients we have carefully chosen as key components within our luxury, holistic skin care ritual.

It Starts With A Gentle Paraben-Free and Sulfate-Free Facial Cleanser

If you are like most women, you likely wear makeup, and are exposed to pollution, stress, and a variety of other impurities throughout your day.  The essential first step in your skin care routine is a gentle, non-drying cleanser to effectively remove toxins, while maintaining your skin's proper moisture balance. 

Gentle Renewing Facial Cleanser is a creamy, soothing formula that contains beneficial, natural ingredients to calm and renew:

  • Cupuacu butter:  This antioxidant-rich butter is derived from the seeds of the Cupuacu tree found in tropical rain forests and has been prized in Brazil for centuries.  It contains a rich content of phytosterols to moisturize and help heal dry, damaged skin, and polyphenols to combat free radicals and environmental damage.  It has anti-inflammatory properties and its high fatty acid content helps promote skin elasticity.  It is hydrophilic (water loving) for moisture retention.
  • Argan oil:  Derived from the nut within the fruit of the Argan tree, this nutritious oil has been used for generations in Morocco.  Argan oil contains high vitamin E, vitamin A, and Omega-6 fatty acid and linoleic acid content.  It has traditionally been used in Morocco for wound healing and as a skin nourishing precious oil, as it has been used to help ease inflammation, promote elasticity, and soothe skin. We use high quality organic Argan oil in our gentle cleanser.
  • Calendula:  Calendula is extracted from the petals of the calendula flower.  It has been used for centuries for its healing properties and the ancient Egyptians considered it rejuvenating.  It contains high concentrations of antioxidant flavonoids and linoleic acid which are known for their anti-inflammatory properties.  It is considered an antiseptic, antimicrobial, and antiviral herb.  Calendula has been used to help heal eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, acne, sun burn, spider veins, and bruises. The Calendula extract we use is from organic farming.

 

  • Aloe vera: The gel of this amazing plant contains a host of beneficial and healing bioactive compounds, including amino acids, minerals, and vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B12 and folic acid.  It contains powerful antioxidant polyphenols, has antimicrobial properties, can increase skin elasticity, and is detoxifying.  It has been renowned for thousands of years for its ability to soothe and calm distressed, inflamed skin. 
  • Bilberry:  Extracted from the berry of the Bilberry shrub, Bilberry is high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory flavonoids resveratrol and quercetin.  It is nourishing to the skin and nutrient rich with vitamins A, B, C, E, K and excellent mineral content, including copper, chromium, manganese, zinc, and iron.  Its natural lactic acid content, used at extremely gentle levels, provides exfoliating benefits for the skin.
  • Sugarcane:  Derived from the perennial sugarcane plant, this extract is high in protective antioxidants and flavonoids, and is a natural source of glycolic acid which is known for its exfoliating properties.  Incorporated into our cleanser in gentle levels, it helps to smooth the skin, increase cell turnover, and remove impurities.
  • Pumpkin enzymes: Derived from pumpkin fruit, these natural enzymes are unique due to their capacity to exfoliate and cleanse the skin of impurities at a deeper level, while being ultra gentle for sensitive skin.  They contain antioxidants, vitamins A, B, C, and E.  These natural enzymes assist in cell turnover, and help smooth and brighten skin.

In addition to these beneficial ingredients, we use gentle, natural, Ecocert approved cleansing agents derived from coconut and sugar. Our Gentle Renewing Facial Cleanser contains NO sulfates, parabens, silicones, toxic solvents, artificial colors, or fragrances.  We subtly scent our Gentle Renewing Facial Cleanser with natural essential oils of rosewood, sandalwood, rose geranium, neroli, and tangerine for a calming, yet uplifting skin care experience.
