The Oil Cleansing Method

 Oily skin is frequently a result of excessive oil production. The use of astringent cleansers can disrupt the skin’s natural microbiome, removing an excessive amount of sebum. This disturbance to the innate balance of our skin often leads to an increase in oil production, further exacerbating the issue.

Sebum plays a crucial role in protecting the skin. It serves to safeguard cell walls, combat bacteria, aid in wound healing, and prevent moisture from evaporating from the skin's layers. When we strip this away, the skin tends to overcompensate, triggering a heightened production of oil in an attempt to replenish what was removed. This cycle can lead to the skin producing more oil than necessary.



The most effective way to break this cycle, is by using products formulated with low, or non-comedogenic plant-based oils that mimic the skins natural sebum. These oils are less prone to clog pores, a primary factor contributing to breakouts.
"Undesirable oils," such as oxidized sebum, grime, and other impurities, are gently eliminated, and the skin is rejuvenated with fresh oils enriched with nutrients, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids.

Our facial cleansing oil features sunflower oil (with a comedogenic score of 1) and camellia oil (with a comedogenic score of 0). In other words, they are known to be non-comedogenic which means they closely resembles our skin's natural sebum and can help balance oil production. This makes them ideal for oil cleansing as they won't aggravate acne related conditions and are suitable for all skin types.
