"A gentle, lightly scented emulsified oil cleansing balm to remove impurities, melt and absorb oil, and cleanse the skin. Can be used as a stand-alone cleanser, as part of a two-step cleansing method followed by a foaming facial cleanser, or as a makeup removing balm.

Made with a base of organic castor bean oil, organic meadowfoam oil, golden jojoba oil, and organic sunflower oil infused with wild harvested spruce tips, golden chanterelles, western red cedar leaf, and grand and pacific silver fir needles, raw Vancouver Island beeswax, and wildcrafted grand fir resin extracted in organic virgin olive oil.

The addition of cera bellina wax imparts a smooth, gel-like texture, and the use of a plant-derived emulsifier transforms this cleansing balm to a milky cream when water touches it, enabling easy and effective rinse off.

Organic castor bean oil: Contains humectant (helpful in preventing the loss of skin moisture) properties to draw moisture from the air into the skin. Contains triglycerides which are helpful in removing dirt from the skin.

Organic meadowfoam oil: Emollient, keeps skin soft and supple, balances sebum production

Golden jojoba oil: Nonallergenic wax-like oil with a chemical composition closest to sebum produced naturally by our skin and highly effective cleansing abilities.

Grand fir resin: Antiseptic and antifungal properties to help heal wounds, prevent infection and cleanse the skin of harmful bacteria

Western red cedar leaf: powerful astringent and cleanser that is very good at removing oil.

Organic marshmallow root: conditions, softens, ad moisturizes the skin, and relieves redness and irritation.

Wild golden chanterelles: good for reducing irritation and inflammation, contain phenolic acid which has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to smooth and hydrate."
