An oil for cleansing? Yup. The oil helps to lift dirt and infection helping to heal and cleanse skin. It was originally used in clinic for cases of acne yet this oil has helped with damaged skin, inflammation, and rashes. Hence the name change from Acne Oil to Healing Cleansing Oil. The Tamanu oil and Jojoba oil are combined with healing essential oils including New Zealand Kanuka. They provide anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Tamanu oil will help with scarring through skin regeneration and is anti-inflammatory. We use Tamanu oil from Vanuatu where it supports local businesses there.
Jojoba oil closely resembles natural oils of the skin and helps to lift and remove dirt and toxins and unclog pores. We use unrefined Jojoba oil.
Directions for Use:
Apply oil to affected area(s) and leave for 5-10 minutes.
Remove with a warm, damp flannel.
Wash with a solid cleanser such as our Healing Cleanser or Naturalus' Acne Soap (yes, this is another company but, like our products, it has been formulated by a medical herbalist.)
Use Healing Toner and moisturise.
You will notice a difference in your skin.
Very rarely there can be an initial flare up in acne as toxins are removed from the skin. It should clear in a few days (if it happens at all.) Remember, if you have any concerns or questions get in touch. We are always happy to help!
