Our herbal Face Wash is a contradiction – it is extremely mild and gentle, yet is a super effective cleanser that will remove all pollution, oil, grit and grime, as well as make-up (if used) from your skin without causing it to dry out or stripping the skin of its natural acid mantle protection.
There are few face washes that actually contain the amount of active ingredients that you will find in our Herbal Face Wash.
Although a face wash or cleanser is meant to rid the skin of all unwanted dirt, grime, pollution, make-up etc - it can at the same time do so much more to combat the ravages of every-day living, and at the same time promote a softer, wrinkle-free and younger-looking skin.
The unique formulation of the face wash will help to calm and soothe the skin. If any skin complaints or problems are present, it will also help sort them out, and also prevent any skin problems from starting.
A facial toner is not required, as the pH of the skin is not compromised with the facial wash, and no grimy residue is left - so there is no reason for using a toner - which again is a money-saving feature.
Our Face Wash has an unique and extraordinary formula, in which a blend of
various pure herbs and natural ingredients are combined to create this
To place these herbs in perspective, and the reason for their inclusion in our Face Wash, we have included a short summary of each ingredient used. For more information on each individual ingredient, please click the hyperlinked text.
Horse Chestnut Extract
This extract has a direct influence on improving the health of veins and capillaries in the skin, which in turn leads to proper circulation and maximum skin functioning.
It has a strengthening effect on the venous system, and prevents capillary fragility – which could result in "leaking" and so cause edema (water retention) within the skin, which in turn leads to an uneven looking skin.
Apart from this, it inhibits collagenase and elastase in the skin – and therefore leads to healthier collagen and supportive skin structure, that in turn results in a healthier younger looking skin, while at the same time fighting inflammatory conditions, which if left unchecked, could lead to premature aging.
- Alpha hydroxy acids - Natural Mixed Fruit Acids
- They help to minimize photo-damaged skin, which is a major contributing factor to ageing and can be a great boon to promoting younger looking skin, minimizing the effect of ageing.
- They rid the skin of unnecessary dead cells, and also have a moisturizing effect on the skin, by increasing the moisture content of the upper skin and so smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, as well as reducing dryness and combating flakiness.
- Long-term use of low concentration AHA's can also increase collagen and elastin synthesis, and also boost protein regeneration in the skin.
- Beta hydroxy acid - Salicylic acid
- This natural extract not only has anti-microbial properties but is also a great anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory ingredient that helps to improve skin thickness, the skin barrier functions, collagen production as well as cell renewal.
- Some people have reported a side effect from using salicylic acid - but this has always proven to be from using a synthetic salicylic acid, and for that reason
we use natural salicylic acid, obtained from willow bark, which does NOT have this side effect.
- Salicylic acid, as apposed to alpha hydroxy acid, has the power to penetrate and clean out the inside of the pores, effectively reducing blemishes, blackheads and whiteheads, while at the same time removing dead cells.
- BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) - which is what Salicylic Acid is classed as - vary from Alpha Hydroxy Acids as it penetrates into the pores to work its magic - while AHA cannot. So where AHA can help cleanse the rest of the skin, the salicylic acid - being a Beta Hydroxy Acid - can help to clean within the pores.
- Although people see jojoba as oil, it is really a wax ester, and is non-oily or greasy and contains high levels of tocopherols, which have an antioxidant effect on the skin.
- Skin absorption studies at the University of Michigan demonstrated that jojoba is quickly absorbed into the skin, which is apparently via the transappendegeal mechanism and occurs through the pores and hair follicles. Because it is so rapidly absorbed, the pores and hair follicles remain open and thus maintain their proper functioning ability.
- It is an excellent moisturizer and softens the skin in a dual action – firstly by forming a non-greasy lipid layer, which is partially occlusive (thereby preventing water-loss through the skin) and secondly by the diffusion of jojoba into the intercellular spaces of the stratum corneum to soften this tissue.
- apricot kernel
- Apricot kernel oil is a fine textured, smooth and lightweight carrier oil, which the skin easily absorbs, without leaving the skin feeling oily and it is high in poly-unsaturated fatty acids.
- Grape seed oil has a fine texture and is almost odorless, light in texture and is easily absorbed by the skin. It has mildly astringent qualities, which help to tighten and tone the skin, which makes it useful for all skin types and particularly for acne and other skin complaints.
- One of its main functions is in increasing circulation, but it is also known for centuries for its great wound healing properties.
- It stimulates the fibroblast and
collagen in the skin, yet prevents excessive proliferation of fibrous tissue in wound healing.
- Centella is particularly helpful in healing damaged and injured skin and maintaining healthy skin tone and elasticity.
- The triterpene components are principally responsible for fixing amino acids (alanine and proline) onto the
- It is mainly used for its antiseptic and anti-dandruff properties, but also has antibacterial, spasmolytic (relieving spasms) and local pain killing actions.
- It contains ursolic acid, which is not only antibacterial, but also active against lipid oxidation and inhibits elastase (elastase results in tissue degeneration, inflammatory processes as well as tissue degradation, such as psoriasis and eczemas).
- The rosmarinic acid and polyphenolic derivatives have good antioxidant properties, which are helpful in countering aging.
Silk amino acids
- Sweet almond oil is a noble oil with highly emollient properties. The unsaturated fatty acids contained enhance the regulation of the lipid phase of the cutaneous mantle.
- It is extremely well tolerated and is thus used in cosmetics for its moisturizing, lubricating, sebum-restorative and re-epithelizing properties.
- The un-saponifiable part of the product, comprising mainly of squalene, tocopherols and phytosterols (principally campesterol, stigmasterol and sitosterol types) provide the skin with highly nutritive substances.
- The topical application of sweet almond oil acts on the connective tissue of the skin and improves the tone and elasticity.
- This exotic ingredient has excellent water binding properties, which helps to prevent dehydration of the skin. On top of this, it also has good antioxidant qualities.
- Apart from the moisturizing, soothing and softening effect that it has, it contains polyunsaturated fatty acids (vitamin F) also known as essential fatty acids (EFA), and when they are absorbed through the skin, they convert to prostaglandins (PGE), which are involved in cellular membrane and tissue regeneration.
- Because of this, rosehip oil brings about skin regeneration, enhancing wound healing. It furthermore contains trans-retinoic acid, which is responsible for skin rejuvenation, quicker healing time and repairs skin subjected to excessive sunlight and the resultant photo aging.
- The linoleic and linolenic acids in rosehip help reduce pigmentation of the skin and when used regularly, rosehip has been shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

- I never thought that a cleanser can make such a difference!!!! My face feels really clean after using it, and there is no stiffness or tenderness. I have always used cleansing cream, but though that with all your interesting herbs included in the wash that I will give it a try - and what a pleasant surprise. Keep up the good work.
