Why All the Fuss About Exfoliation?
Exfoliation is more than just a beauty process. It is truly one of the best things you can do to improve the appearance and health of your skin. Pores get filled with dead skin, oil, external particles, etc. and because of this, there is nothing better than a good, regular, gentle exfoliation to keep skin fresh and healthy. It also helps move blood flow and lymph tissue. Think about it this way…Mother Nature sheds you about once a month. If you shed you more often, like 1-2x a week, your skin will always be smoother, softer and more polished.
As we age (and we all do), the process of cell turnover decreases, and skin can start to look drier and less glowing. Since exfoliation increases cell turnover, the skin appears younger and feels tighter too. Yay!
The biggest reason we have so much trouble with commercial skin care products is that they strip the oil out of our skin. Each time we do this, our skin over-compensates, trying to repair itself by replacing the oil that was taken away. This causes the dry/oily syndrome. For many people, the simplest way to clear up acne, blackheads, pimples, blemishes, rashes or outbreaks on your face is simple: STOP using soap & other harsh cleansers & moisturizers, & turn instead to the most natural, time-honored facial trick of all: Cleaning your skin with natural oils.
When you use natural botanical oils to remove grease & dirt you’re employing a cool chemical process called “like dissolves like.” Natural oils are close enough in their basic structure to bind to dirty oils chemically and then to dissolve all the gunk on your skin and face. Pretty cool, huh?
Do not be afraid of applying oil to your face. Oil, alone, will not bring you pimples and blemishes. These are mainly a result of several different factors, which include hormones, bacteria, dead skin & the buildup of all of these. Your skin produces Sebum oil because it is a natural skin softener and moisturizer. Not only does this beneficial oil lubricate skin, it also heals, protects, and moisturizes, so that it may function properly. This results in beautiful, clear, and glowing skin. Working with your skin, and not against it, will make it shine with health, not extra oil.
Our products are never tested on animals, unless of course it’s our dogs getting a good “Scrubzing” themselves. (The natural oils are great for their coat.)
Handmade in small batches, since 2006. Even though we use the finest ingredients, we always suggest testing any product on a small area of skin, first.
