The ingredients that make a difference


Apricot seed powder acts as fine solid particles that promote the removal of damaged skin cells from the skin's surface, thus leaving behind a softer, smoother skin texture.


Sea Buckthorn promotes skin hydration, elasticity, cell regeneration, and even helps treat and prevent acne. Sea Buckthorn oil has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce swelling and redness associated with many skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.


Black currant keeps the skin hydrated, firm, and younger-looking. It also contains antioxidants to nourish dry skin, and can help with eczema.

Anna's Tip's

Best used as the first cleanse to break down makeup, SPF, and any oils (sebum, sweat) on the surface of the skin. Follow with a water-based cleanse, like our Chai soaps, to remove any impurities in the pores.

Jazmin's Tip's

"Toss your makeup remover wipes and use this instead. No pulling and it removes everything."
