Oil-Cleansing Facial Cleanser
Modern Hippie Facial Cleanser is moisturizing and gentle on the skin. Although it can be used on all skin types, it has been designed specifically for acne prone and sensitive skin.
This simple concoction of grape seed oil, safflower oil, raw honey, castile soap and essential oils will leave your skin cleansed, soft and smooth. This cleanser is not designed to strip away your natural oils, but instead, add them back into your skin.
Cleansing with oil is great for those with oily skin too, because as the "Oil Cleansing Method" states, oil dissolves oil and removes excess oil that's built-up on the surface of the skin.
Why grape seed oil and safflower oil? Both are high in linoleic acid. Acne patients have been shown to have low levels of linoleic acid in their skin surface lipids. Adding oils, which are high in linoleic acid to the skin, balances the surface lipids, which can decrease the number of acne breakouts. Also, both oils are between a 0-2 on the comedogenic scale, which means they won't clog pores.
Raw honey has powerful antibacterial properties, and is moisturizing and very gentle on the skin.
The specific blend of essential oils used in this cleanser are added for their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, and of course provide a beautiful scent!
