Calypso Cleansing Balm || Soap-Free Moisturizing Facial Cleanser
This combination of powerfully regenerative oils rich in fatty acids, plus potent, traditional healing herbs results in this soap-free face cleanser that will not only remove makeup, but leave your skin surprisingly soft, moisturized, glowing, & rejuvenated.
Organic & unrefined shea butter, coconut oil, and castor oil are carefully balanced so as to provide a base that not only melts with body heat but is both cleansing and moisturizing without being too much of either.
These oils are then infused with rose petals and calendula flowers two gentle yet potent plants that have long been held in high regard for their healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
Why not just use soap?
Soaps and other lathering cleansers can strip our skin of the oil that it naturally produces, leaving our largest organ to try and repair itself. Each time we strip the oil away, our skin over-compensates for the lack of moisture by creating even more oil than is necessary. This puts us in a cycle of being tight and dry, followed by an oil slick. Cleansing with oil is based off of the fact that "like dissolves like", washing away dirt, makeup, and excess sebum while still leaving skin with a balanced, healthy, protective layer.
On top of their drying effects, commercial products are also highly-scented. Fragrance is one of the top skin irritants and even "unscented" products usually contain fragrance. This cleanser is infused with whole plants in order to provide all of their benefits and subtle scent, without the irritation.
So can you use this if you have oily or acne-prone skin? Absolutely. Your skin needs moisture and needs oil. That's why it's already producing so much. Denying skin of healthy oil doesn't prevent breakouts, it makes them worse. Feeding your skin with healthy oil is one way to break the over-drying cycle and balance your own natural oil production in order to get your skin back on track.
