OC Ritual for Dry skin
What it is?
The reason you have dry skin is either a genetic disposition, incorrect products causing imbalance or a natural function of age. In every case it needs healing. Your skin also tends to show certain signs of ageing like wrinkles, a little sooner than you would want it to. But a simple oil-based ritual could turn around all your concerns.
So where do you start? Start slow, and simple. Give Double cleansing a go, the combination of the Cleansing Gel and the restorative African Black is a balanced and effective cleansing routine. Follow it up with our Moisture Replenishing Skin Tonic for instant hydration. Our Under Eye Elixir is next, and it will help slow down the appearance of wrinkles. If your skin is severely dry and stretchy, we suggest you could try adding 1-2 drops of the Elixir to our Ultra Nourishing Crème, and apply it to your face. It will help hydrate and nourish your skin at the same time.
How It's Made?
Pollution Defense Cleansing Gel
Cold pressed oils of Grapeseed, Extra Virgin Coconut, Castor; Mango Butter; Essential oils of Lemon, Sweet orange, Cinnamon; Vitamin E, Stearic acid*, Olivem 1000**; Spectrastat G2N **. *Plant Derived **COSMOS approved.
Using cold pressed Grape Seed oil and Castor oil, with unrefined Mango Butter and steam distilled Lemon essential oil, is an ancient method of oil cleansing. It gently removes dirt and waterproof makeup from skin without stripping it of its natural oils, while preventing blackheads.
Mesmerising African Black Cleansing Potion
African Black Soap*; Essential Oils of Lavender, Orange, German Chamomile, Rosewood, Geranium; Gum Acacia, Spectrastat G2N**, Deionised Water. *Handcrafted Using Traditional African Methods, with Healing Herbs **COSMOS Approved.
This potion is a 100% natural, centuries old recipe by West African natives; using Palm oil, Shea Butter; Cocoa Pod and Plantian Skin ashes and local herbs; enriched with therapeutic essential oils of Lavender, Sweet Orange and German Chamomile.
Moisture Replenishing Skin Tonic
Aloe Vera juice, Witch Hazel (Non-alcoholic), Sandalwood Hydrosol; Essential oils of Patchouli, Neroli, Lavender; Campul S12L*; Spectrastat G2N**. *EWG approved. **COSMOS approved.
Steam distilled essential oils of Patchouli, Neroli and Lavender blended with Aloe vera and Witch hazel, makes an aqueous serum that adds instant radiance and hydration.
Intensive Under Eye Repair Elixir
Cold Pressed Oils of Tamanu, Seabuckthorn, Sweet Almond & Rice Bran, Essential Oils of French Lavender, Eucalyptus, German Chamomile, Rosewood, Lemon, Myrhh, Vitamin E*. *Vitamin E used as a natural antioxidant.
Cold pressed Tamanu oil penetrates through 3 layers of skin to boost collagen. Our Tamanu oil differs in colour from batch to batch, freshly extracted Tamanu oil is darker because of its chlorophyll content. It gradually becomes pale as chlorophyll oxidises. However that does not impact the therapeutic value of the oil as the percentage of fatty acids remains the same. Steam distilled Lavender essential oil is known to aid restful sleep.
Ultra Nourishing Creme
Cold Pressed Oils of Argan, Sweet Almond & Shea Nut, Essential Oils of Chamomile, Lavender, Neroli, Patchouli, Frankincense; Mango Butter, Cetyl Alcohol*, Vegetable Glycerin*, Aloe Vera Juice, Montanov L**, Spectrastat G2N**, Deionised Water *Plant Derived **COSMOS Approved.
Cold pressed Argan oil and Sweet Almond oil are high in Vitamin E, and induce cell regeneration and repair skin. Cold pressed Shea nut oil hydrates damaged skin. Steam distilled essential oil of Chamomile is anti-inflammatory.
You should ideally do the ritual once during the day after shower, and once at bed time.
