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).

My daughter and I use this faithfully. We each have our own bottle. Our skin feels and looks great.
Purchase this for my son and it has done wonders in clearing up his face.
After using this my face feels clean without being dry. It's a liquid so you don't need that much to make it foam up and it has a nice light smell.
I bought this for my teenage daughter for her breakouts and she loves it. I 'accidentally' used it when I ran out of my regular brand. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING!! I don't have breakouts but this evens out my skin tone and feels like it actually tightens my skin. I wear much less foundation now. I am going to stock up because it's that good!! 10 stars in my book!
I have purchased this many times from Oakwood and it does a great job keeping breakouts and oil under control. I purchased this recently for a friend who had acne go crazy from pregnancy. She says its clearing up nicely and the soap smells great!
