Moisturise, cleanse, exfoliate, nourish, repair and protect from one revolutionary little pot.
This product is made from 100% natural plant oils. The absence of water means it does not require emulsifiers or harsh anti-microbial preservatives (parabens, phenoxyethanol, formaldehyde etc). We naturally omit artificial colour and fragrance.
The Oil Cleansing Method (or Hot Cloth Cleansing) is a cornerstone of Lyonsleaf waterless skincare system, once you start oil cleansing you can have a complete skincare regime without a single artificial chemical and without compromise. Oil Cleansing is based on the principle that ‘like dissolves like’. When you try it you’ll see how easily natural plant oils dissolve dirty sebum, grime and make up, even waterproof mascara. Use a Muslin cloth for extra exfoliation when cleansing.
Not only will you find you effectively remove dirt, make up, even dead skin cells, but because you are not stripping the skin's natural oils, you will find that skin barrier function is much improved. That means moisture is sealed in and skin stays hydrated all day long. Hydrated skin is plumped, soft, and more youthful looking than dry skin (think of the difference between a grape and a raisin).
Skin barrier function is not just about hydration. Cracks in the skin's protective outer ‘wall’ also allow invasion by pathogens, causing spots, fungal or bacterial infections, allergic reactions and flare ups of chronic skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis (this can happen to oily skin too).
Oily skin has traditionally been treated by stripping excess natural oils, but this can disrupt skin barrier causing breakouts. Stripping oils also often makes the skin overcompensate, so it produces more sebum, exacerbating the problem. Lyonsleaf Beauty balm will re-balance both dry and oily skin.
Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm is made only from unrefined plant oils. 95% tropical. These tropical oils have evolved to be very sun-stable by way of an incredibly high antioxidant content. Antioxidant halt free radical damage caused by exposure to the sun and to toxins in the environment.
