Sometimes you just need to sow your wild oats.
Our Foundational Organic Grain Cleanser: Oats, Milk powder and traditional florals combine to form a gentle, cleansing and exfoliating facial wash.
Oats are known for their soothing and anti-itch properties while helping to physically remove dead skin build-up. Milk powder contains lactic acid, which provides a deeper (aha-type) exfoliation. Traditional florals, Elderflower and Rose, flush out impurities in your skin’s cells and help prevent clogged pores. Using three different types of exfoliation at once, rather than one type of a stronger exfoliant, will keep your skin healthy-looking and fresh, never irritated. Coriander seed, Elderfowers, Rose Petals, vetivert sandalwood, Neem leaf and Gotu Kola leaf soothe and nourish your skin.
This powdered cleanser should be mixed at a one to one ratio (1 tsp grain + 1 tsp liquid-making a runny paste) with:
water (for any skin type)
cream (for dry skin)
yoghurt (for hyperpigmentation)
honey (for healing)
Once a week, we recommend mixing your wild oats with honey (1 tsp grain + 1 tbsp honey) for a wonderful and natural masque. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and follow with your regular skin care routine.
Scientists at Waikato University recently documented that honey supports the skins' own cell renewal process, assists in the formation of stronger collagen which is responsible for the skins elasticity. Honey contains antioxidants and is a natural antimicorobial agent. Of course, the town-folk have known that since ancient times!
