A gentle face wash with natural plant based castile that is enhanced with lavender and tea tree oil.
Castile soap is made exclusively from plant oils rather than animal fat or synthetic substances. You will notice some natural foaming action but not like a store bought soap wash, because we do not add any foaming agents such as sodium laurel sulfate.
Good for all skin types and gentle enough to be used daily. The pH balance of this face wash is approximately 8.5 - 8.9
While the exact cause of acne may not be fully understood, it is known that acne results from the blockage and infection of a sebaceous gland which produces oil. Some conditions that are known to cause acne are hormonal changes, pregnancy, menstrual periods, menopause, overproduction of skin oils, commercial products such as shampoo or moisturizer, processed foods, stress and poor diet. Other agents which have been linked include certain medications, steroids, and antibiotics.
Lavender is soothing and helps with redness; tea tree offers anti-microbial and anti-fungal effects. This face wash can additionally be used as a first aid wash for minor cuts, scrapes, athletes foot and nail fungus.
Gently shake the bottle and apply to a damp face cloth and use directly on the face in slow, circular motions to help bring up dirt and excess oils. Rinse face with cool water and pat dry. Follow up with the lavender facial serum as a moisturizer or raw organic shea butter. Only a small amount is needed, (dime size).
Complementary products - We recommend using our Lavender Face Serum to moisturize after cleansing and it additionally offers acne fighting properties.
A note about Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS) - a common ingredient in personal care products, which is an additive that allows foam in cleansing products. SLS is a moderate hazard that has been linked to cancer, neurotoxicity, organ toxicity, skin irritations, dermatitis and endocrine disruption (from the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database).

Hands down, best fave wash to use. Face had to adjust at first, however once the PH got to normal, my face was clearer than ever!
Both of my boys (teenagers) use this stuff and it really helps with their acne, as well as greasiness. Plus, it smells good and a little goes a long way.
Got this for my daughter and when used with the clay mask and lavender face lotion I could see a huge difference! Not harsh or drying either!
Has done a great job on clearing up my son's acne.
I and my teens use this daily AM and PM before applying the face serum. It truly is the best skin care routine I have had in my entire life!
