    Delicate Facial Cleanser

    $18.00

    Properly cleansing your face truly is the starting place for healthy glowing skin. 

    Our Moisturizing Facial Cleanser, a perfectly pH balanced organic facial cleanser is formulated with the same wonderful and nutrient rich ingredients we use in our moisturizers (and more!). 

    Your skin will be gently cleansed, deeply moisturized and properly nourished. Never dry or stripped of it's natural oils.

    Hand formulated without synthetic foaming agents or toxic thickeners, our natural, organic Moisturizing Facial Cleanser is simply a very pure handmade liquid soap with it's pH ideally adjusted with carefully selected organic ingredients to compliment and nourish your skin. 

    Funny thing about soap. There's no better way to cleanse your facial skin than a properly made and properly pH balanced soap. When people say "Don't put soap on your face" it's because they don't really understand skin. Or the true nature of soap. What they should be saying is don't use anything on your skin that challenges the natural pH balance of your skin. Do use products that are nourishing. 

    If your skin is oily, dry or if you have unpredictable combination skin chances are your facial cleanser has one or more ingredients your skin perceives as a threat and is attempting to defend itself. Don't worry, your skin will forgive you now that you're considering an upgrade to healthy skincare.

    Facial Cleansing Instructions

    You Have To Gently Shake Your Luminance Natural Cleanser Before Each Use:  
    You'll notice that your facial cleanser separates into a clear soap on the bottom and oils and herbal extractions floating on top. So it's important to give the bottle a shake before every use; before shaking the cleanser pH is a bit too high for facial skin, but after a gentle shake or two the nutrient rich emollients and herbal extractions blend with the soap at a low pH that's just perfect for your skin.
    And sure we could easily add something to bind the ingredients and keep them mixed and always ready, but it wouldn't be as healthy. Or as nice.
    Adjust Water Temperature:
    Not too hot and not too cold; adjust the water temperature as you let it flow over your hands until they say "Mmmmm that feels nice"; that's your skin telling you the temperature is just right. Skin is very smart and if you listen carefully it will you what it likes and needs to be healthy. Lovely and glowing.
    Now You're Ready To Cleanse Your Face.
    Always remember. Easy does it. Be gentle. Never do anything that irritates, scratches or in any way hurts your skin. If it hurts even a little bit that's your skin's way asking you not to do that. So no wash cloths. No sponges and for heavens sake no machines should ever be used to treat your facial skin. Hands only. Skin on skin becomes so obvious when you think about it.
    1. Ok now that you have your water temperature just right, wet your face and your hands with water. Give an additional quick shake of your cleanser and then spray 3 or 4 spritzes into your hands and work the cleanser into a nice delicate lather. 
    2. Gently massage the lather onto your face using only your hands and fingertips applying lite to moderate pressure. No sponges, wash clothes or anything scratchy, just your fingertips and palms. As you move the lather around your face, in addition to deeply and gently cleansing your face, you'll be giving yourself a gentle and toning muscular massage, stimulating moisture enhancing circulation and softly exfoliating. The more contact your hands have with your skin the more your skin will glow with health.
    3. After a few minutes of cleansing, close your eyes, and splash your face with a couple of splashes of water, being careful not to over-rinse; this very natural cleanser is therapeutic in many ways so to leave a little bit on your skin is very beneficial.
    4. Now while your skin is gently cleansed and nicely moisturized by the cleanser, it still has a bit of typically highly alkaline Tap Water residue. This is where the Rosewater Toner is so critical to rebalance the pH of your skin. So give a few spritzes, move it around your face with your hands and let it almost dry.
    5. If you're using a serum now is the time to apply and then follow with your moisturizer.

    A Few Words On Ingredients:

    Obviously, pristine super quality ingredients are very important. Every constituent of a skincare product should be either organic or wildcrafted; ours are. Ingredients considered separately should all be what skin readily considers a nutrient source and non threatening; ours are. And lastly formulating an ideal skincare product is a lot more than just randomly assembling a list of good ingredients, it's understanding the secondary and sometimes tertiary interactions and achieving the ideal ratios, we do.

    Rosewater Toner

    $18.00

    Spraying yourself with our Rosewater is like swimming in freshly plucked rose petals. It's fragrant, pure, and will leave your face dewey with rose oil.

    Toner should be a pH adjustment.  Tap water is too alkaline for your face (sometimes gets into the median 8's). Your face is happy in the upper 6's. So any and every time tap water touches your face for any reason spritz a few spritzes of our Rose Water onto your face. Your skin will thank you for it. 

    By the way, this is a critically important step to correcting dry facial skin, oily facial skin or skin that vacillates between the two (combination skin).

    Our rosewater is not a hydrosol. It doesn't have any alcohol, solvents or astringent. Just pure rosewater.

    Tips:

    For those of you with acne prone skin, don't be scared off by the word oil. The oils we use are good for your skin and won't clog your pores. 

    If your makeup isn't blending well (we all have those days) spray some rose water toner on after you've put on your powder and it will become seamless with your skin ;)

    How To Use Our New Nite Skin Butter.

    As A Night Time And Morning Moisturizer:
    After you have cleansed, toned and moisturized, wait a few minutes. And then apply a small amount to your fingertips and massage it into your skin; a little goes a long way so start out with a small amount and increase as your skin demands. And then reapply your toner to help drive the butter deeper into your skin.
    Tip: Just before you go to bed massage a small amount onto your skin. And then reapply your toner to help drive the butter deeper into your skin. 
    .
    As Pre-Cleanse Oil:
    One thing you can do to infuse even more moisture during your daily regiment. Use the Night Time Facial Butter as a Pr-Cleanse. So before you cleanse your face with a cleanser, apply a little bit to your fingertips and massage it into your skin. It will penetrate quickly and deeply both replenishing deep moisture and give you a deep oil cleanse. Wait a few minutes and follow your daily regiment.
    .
    As A Touch Up During The Day: 
    Now if you find yourself out in the cold, simply dab a little bit on your fingertips and massage into your skin for extra protection. Just be sure remember this is an extremely rich butter and a little goes a long way.

        A new product and an instant best seller!

        Our Anti Oxidant spray is formulated to provide a broad spectrum of naturally occurring and stable floral antioxidants and vitamin C, in a blend of organic rosewater and Borage Oil to help dissolve already coagulated sebum. 

        Important because as we age our skin produces less and less beneficial, age deifying antioxidants. And vitamin C is just a miracle; but be careful, most Vitamin C Serums use a derived Vitamin C and these can be extremely harmful to your skin.

        A must for acne prone skin which in particular tends to burn through antioxidants quickly, making the skins sebum susceptible to coagulation, typically becoming a black head or pimple.

        Simply spray your face morning and evening, or as frequently as you wish to replenish, refresh, protect and stabilize your skin. Naturally.

        $18.00

        This clarifying mask is considerably more tingly than the White Clay mask. The trace amounts of carefully selected essential oils in this mask are there help kill the bacteria, removes impurities, and eliminate excess oil. And then the magic of Meadow Foam  Oil to help reduce inflammation and deeply moisturize your skin.

        This is the ideal mask for people who are having a hard time with oily skin and break outs. 

        Tip: The first time you use this mask wash it off in 5 minutes. And then increase the duration of the mask by 5 minutes each time you apply until you reach the full 15 minutes. This is because the mask uses Tea Tree Oil and while the amount used is very small, some folks will experience mild discomfort if left on too long. Just sneak up on it as you discover how your skin reacts.

        Organic Eye Cream With German Blue Chamomile

        $22.00

        We hand-craft this organic and completely natural eye cream with a wonderfully nutritious collection of therapeutic ingredients. And like all of our products we leave out all the synthetic nasties that just ought not to be there in the first place.

        This eye cream is raw and vegan and just excellent for puffiness and dark circles.

        The skin around your eyes is the most delicate skin you have on your body and it's no place for nasty chemicals. So meet an eye cream without alcohols or astringents. Without synthetic wax. Without harsh preservatives. Solvents, Metals or synthetic fragrances. As always, what we don't use is as important as what we do.

        So I could talk your ear off about this eye cream but here's what we've accomplished and how. Briefly.

        1. Herbal Extractions for increased circulation. Enhanced blood circulation helps the delicate skin above, below and around the eyes brings water into the tissue for greater hydration. Calendula, Honeysuckle, Ginko, Chickweed and Holy Basil to name a few.

        2. A very specific collection of oils. Creates a barrier so that the enhanced hydration stays in the skin while allowing the skin to breathe. A small touch of Jojoba (more in the blog explaining why too much Jojoba is not a good idea). Kukui, Meadow foam and Avocado.

        3. German Blue Chamomile Essential Oil. A gentle muscle relaxant which helps with fine lines. It also is amazingly therapeutic, instantly calming inflamed skin. The antioxidant and detoxing properties of this essential oil will also help reduce dark circles under the eyes. And it smells like heaven.
