I love using this cleansing balm in the shower! It feels like silk going on! I let it sit on my face while I shower and then wipe off. My face feels great after using this. Not dry as it usually is after a shower.
CLEANSING BALM (2 oz)
Oil Cleansing Method fans know the power of “like dissolves like,” so we take this concept to the next level with our Tallow Cleansing Balm! Tallow is especially beneficial because of its biocompatible properties that closely match the oils on our own skin. It makes sense then that tallow is the primary oil in this product. We infuse our 100% grassfed tallow with organic flowers and lemon peel for a pleasing cleansing blend that’s perfect for all skin types. We add a small amount of hydrogenated castor oil to create a solubilizing effect. This means that this balm wipes away more cleanly, making the Oil Cleansing ritual a more user-friendly process for the less patient.
For the full experience, select our Kit. Kits include a microfiber cloth and wooden spoon and comes in a durable eco friendly hemp + PEVA plastic zipper bag for easy travel.
Directions: Scoop out a quarter sized amount of Cleansing Balm and massage onto facial skin with circular strokes. Wet a soft cloth with hot, steamy water and lay it over face. Relax and allow the cloth to cool. Wet the cloth again with warm water and wipe away the oil, taking care not to scrub. Your face will be left soft and moisturized. No need to follow with anything at all -- simply allow your skin to rest.
Natural Ingredients for Skincare and Their Benefits
Unrefined 100% Grassfed Tallow — Homegrown and dry rendered in-house, this exceptionally nutritious fat is the basis of all our products. Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid found naturally in high concentrations in tallow. Stearic acid has a double function - as a surfactant and emulsifier. Surfactants are compounds that lower the surface tension between two substances, such as two liquids or a liquid and a solid. In other words, surfactants reduce the surface tension so that water can penetrate the skin more easily. Stearic acid also acts as an emulsifier, meaning that it helps the product contain both oil and water without separating. Additionally, tallow is highly emollient and non-comedogenic, meaning it will not clog pores. Read more about our tallow here.
Hydrogenated Castor Oil - Functions as a surfactant, a solubilizer, an emulsifier, an emollient, and a cleansing agent. We include it in our Cleansing Balm to help this product rinse away easily, in addition to acting as a barrier against the loss of natural moisture.
Organic Lavender Flowers— We infuse this calming herb directly into our tallow! It is a counter irritant, increases circulation, and promotes a healthy mood.
Organic Calendula Flowers — Infused directly into our tallow! It promotes circulation and assists with wound healing and skin trauma thanks to its concentration of carotenoids and flavonoids.
Organic Rose Buds — Also infused right into our tallow. Rose is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, relaxing has as calming scent. It is moisturizing, toning and rejuvenates and replenishes to soften skin.
Organic Lemon Peel — Contains a high amount of calcium, vitamin C, and citric acid, making it a natural detoxer, antibacterial, and gentle exfoliator. We also use it to lend a wonderful scent to our products.
About The Oil Cleansing Method
Dirt, pollution, and other impurities trapped in the pores contribute to acne, inflammation, and glycation (wrinkling). Contrary to popular belief, oil is necessary for skin health and can dissolve and dislodge these impurities when applied during the Oil Cleansing Method. Doing so is a relaxing way to restore skin's optimal barrier function and glow.
I had sampled this product about 1 year ago and forgotten how much I loved it. It's the perfect product for a deep, but gentle, cleaning particularly after a long day or when I've been wearing makeup. I recommend starting with the cleansing balm (a little goes a long way) then I use the honey & milk soap (with the Konjac sponge) for a double cleansing. I finish with the Brighten Toner spray, quickly followed by the Night Balm and Eye Revive as well as a Tallow Bar on the neck & décolleté. Thank you, Shalley!
I LOVE the Cleansing Balm!! I have recently received my 2nd jar!! I recommend ordering the cloth EACH time you order! I did not request it this last time and I regret it! For an additional spa experience, I occasionally use my face steamer with my facial scrubber before I rinse off!! It’s heavenly!
Love it! It’s the only product that heals my eczema.
I love the cleansing balm! My skin feels clean and hydrated after using this product.
As someone with red, easily irritated skin especially around my nose, I am always cautious to try new products on my face. But when I saw this product was made of all natural ingredients and using the oil pull technique I was intrigued. I have used it the last few days and loooove it. It's like a little spa treatment at home getting to relax and love on my skin. My face has never glowed so much! I love the smell of the product, too. I'm a believer!
I can't believe how much dirt came off my face when I used this cleansing balm. It had a pleasant scent and left my skin moisturized afterward. It's a keeper!
This is a really nice cleanser........it spreads really well and putting a hot wash cloth over my face with this on my face feels so nice. It seems to do the job of cleansing really well.
Skeptic here! Boy, was I blown away by the way this product both cleans and softens my skin. I am fully converted to oil cleansing with tallow now. Love the light flower scent, too!
I love this cleansing balm as it moisturizes and cleans at the same time...........
