Facial Skincare without preservatives
Janice asked a question on Facebook that I think more people are interested in, so I will bring it up here in the blog too! 🙂
She wondered if we had any cleansers and moisturizers without preservatives. And while we always use minimal amounts of preservatives (and can do so, since the time between a product being made and put on the shelf is VERY short compared to a lot of big companies), I know that some of you want to cut them out completely. All products that have water in them has to have a preservative, so the clue is to look for products without water!
As a cleanser I would recommend either our Deep Cleansing Oil. We have added an emulsifier to the oils, so while it is oily when you massage it in it will rinse off clean with luke warm to warm water. If you want a little exfoliation you can use a wash cloth with it as well. It works on the system that “like dissolves like”, so it is really good at removing oils and dirt from your skin! Check it out, and read the reviews on our website!
Another product that would work well as a cleanser is our Cucumber & Chamomille powdered face mask. You can blend it with a little bit of water, green tea, milk or yogurt. To use it as a cleanser, massage it into skin and then rinse off. If you want to use it as a mask, apply a thicker layer over skin and leave on for about 10 minutes. The cucumber acts astringent and cooling while the chamomille is soothing and anti-inflammatory. I really like this mask!
As a moisturizer, all you probably ever need is our Golden Olive Serum. It has only has three ingredients, but what ingredients they are! Olive squalane, sea buckthorn oil and geranium essential oil. It will give your skin nutrients, it will hydrate and it will help your skin get balanced and healthy. If you need a little more protection from harsh weather elements, like in winter, you can use our Organic Whipped Shea Soufflés on any dry areas. It is also preservative free, and will give a nice protective layer to your skin.
