The Purist Oil Cleanser
The Purist Oil Cleanser
An Ayurveda-inspired oil cleanser. Gently remove dirt, makeup, and other impurities without harming your skin’s acid mantle or microbiome. Oil cleansing helps maintain your skin’s barrier function—no emulsifiers, preservatives, or foaming agents needed. The combination of oils in The Purist have a complete omega profile, and are targeted to penetrate deep into all three layers of the skin to reduce inflammation and deliver antioxidants. The Purist soothes dry, itchy, or otherwise “problematic” skin without clogging pores, and glides easily to help release dirt and debris while soothing rough and chapped skin.
Size: 4oz (120mL)
Sesame oil has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. It’s highly antibacterial and antifungal; it’s also anti-inflammatory and a potent antioxidant. As it’s easily absorbed, it carries these healing properties deep into the lowest layers of the skin. Sesame oil helps moderate the production of sebum, which is helpful for naturally oily and acne-prone skin.
Sacha inchi, or the Peruvian mountain peanut, is high in alpha-Linoleic acid, making it ideal for dry, itchy, scaly, or otherwise problematic skin. The oil is rich in phytonutrients, and vitamins A and E.
Castor oil has also been used for millennia as a topical skin healer. It has an unusual fatty acid structure that makes it more polar and water-accepting than other oils; it also is readily able to penetrate the skin, providing a thorough, deep clean without disrupting your skin. In other words, it really pulls the gunk out.
Blue tansy and turmeric are both powerful anti-inflammatories, and ginger helps bring blood to the surface of the skin.
With clean hands, apply 2-4 pumps of oil & massage into your face for at least 30 seconds. Remove oil with warm water and a washcloth (washcloth can be dry or damp).
Important: If you’re not used to oil cleansing, your skin will need time to adjust. You may see blackheads or breakouts at first; this is your skin’s way of purging. Keep at it for 2 weeks and your skin will begin to glow.
