Option 1: use as a foam cleanser – take a pea sized drop and mix with a few drops of water and lather into a foam. Massage onto face and then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Option 2: as a clay mask – apply a even layer to the skin (whole face or areas that are excessively oily or troubled) and let it sit for a minute. Massage gently with lukewarm water and rinse off.
Because of the clay in the formulation, which is great for sucking out excess oil and impurities, this cleanser may be a bit drying for some. You can still benefit from this cleanser by using this 2-3 times a week in rotation with your regular foam cleanser to soothe and target acne-prone skin.
Why we like it
The double fermented artemisia is mixed with bentonite and koalin to deeply cleanse while also soothing irritations.
Artemesia Annua Extract – Artemisia is also know as mugwort and is somewhat of a wonder ingredient. It helps calm and soothe redness and assists with preventing acne/breakouts. It’s also packed with Vitamin A which is great for skin renewal and regeneration (goodbye fine lines and wrinkles!) as well as Vitamin C which is a skin brightening and antioxidative ingredient!
Kaolin – A naturally occurring clay mineral known for its adsorbent properties. Kaolin’s adsorbent properties make it a popular ingredient for oily skin as it adsorbs excess sebum and oil from your pores to assist with preventing acne.
