We would like to introduce you to our FACE CLEANSING OIL. Ta-dah! It was one of the very first products that KOZMETICS created and it still is one of our go-to essentials.
What is it?
FACE CLEANSING OIL was created for use in the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM), a method that is quickly gaining recognition as one of the most gentle ways to free your skin from everyday dirt and make-up. It is very important to use the right balance of oils. For our FACE CLEANSING OIL we have incorporated Jojoba Oil for its close affinity to human sebum with Apricot Kernel Oil known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, Castor Oil that has strong cleansing, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties and Camellia Oil (Tea Leaf Oil) for nourishing purposes. This blend of precious oils massaged gently into the skin dissolves the mixture of oils and impurities leaving skin feeling refreshed and nourished instead of “squeaky clean” and taut. And it easily removes even waterproof make-up!
Why should you try this method?
The concept of Oil Cleansing is based on the most basic law of chemistry that “like dissolves like” and in this case oil dissolves oil. This blend of oils massaged gently into the skin dissolves the natural oils and waxes produced by our skin (known as sebum) that are mixed with the impurities and stuck in the pores. The best way to remove this mixture of make-up, dirt and oil is by using a hot cloth; steam opens the pores and the mixture is removed. Ok, we admit, it is hard not to be sceptical about the idea of rubbing oil into your skin in order to clean it. But it really works!
How to do it?
- Start with putting 5 drops of our FACE CLEANSING OIL onto your hand. If you feel that your skin needs a little extra TLC or you are wearing a lot of make-up, it’s ok to use more.
- Gently massage it into your skin for a minute or so. Don’t need to rub and make sure you don’t drag the skin, especially around the eyes.
- Remove it with a warm towel or cloth. This can be repeated once or twice, depending on the need.
- Pat your face dry and use a moisturiser of choice. Our Luxurious Rose Face & Neck and Re-balancing Lavender Face & Neck Elixirs ideally complement this method of cleansing!
