THE CLEAN POTION DIFFERENCE

Even if you think you are happy with your cleanser, we invite you try Clean Potion for at least a week so you can begin to see and feel the difference a truly ideal cleanser can make for the first time. 

THE INSPIRATION

From acne to lines, many skin issues can begin with or are aggravated by improper skincare. Proper cleansing is one of the most important (but often overlooked) steps in skincare. Although cleanser remains on your skin for a short time, if skin-damaging ingredients are used repeatedly, it eventually becomes a problem for skin health that can lead to a myriad of skin concerns including acne, dermatitis, redness, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. 

Currently, nearly all foaming, cream and even many oil facial cleansers on the market break down or remove crucial barriers responsible for healthy skin. These include the hydrolipidic barrier, essential for protection against external aggressors and irritants, and the important microbiome -  the good bacteria and good natural oils on your skin that help to keep skin's protective barrier strong and keep skin comfortable & healthy. If your skin feels squeaky clean or powder-smooth after washing your face (whether from cleansers or exfoliants), you've already weakened your skin barriers and stripped your skin.

Even naturally-derived oils with no surfactants that require washcloths for removal can put skin out of balance. Many we have seen do not have a proper balance of linoleic and oleic acids which can be a problem if you use the wrong ones for acne-prone skin or irritated, compromised skin. 

Although in many cases the damage does not show right away, habitually compromised skin becomes weaker, less able to hold moisture, stressed and more vulnerable to breakouts, rough skin texture, blotchy or uneven tone, lines and other signs of environmental damage. 

THE SOLUTION

We believe in using less to do more and developed Clean Potion as an all-in-one cleansing solution that actually helps provide special care for your skin's crucial protective barriers during the cleansing process. At the same time, it easily dissolves water-resistant sunscreen, long-wear makeup and thoroughly lifts pollutants to rinse clean. Skin is infused with a blend of oils that helps soothe the look of redness and feelings of irritation. Nature's own antimicrobial and sebum-regulators help to visibly calm excess oil & breakouts. A very precise combination of omega & EFA levels help promote a more balanced look and feel - whether your skin is more prone to dryness or has oily skin concerns. Skin is ideally cleansed, nourished, and in a receptive state for treatments to follow. Day after day, skin feels stronger and looks more balanced with calmness and clarity.

THE CLEANSING RITUAL

This complete multi-phase, oil-to milky foam cleanser removes the need for extra eye, lip, and face makeup remover, second cleanser, softener, and toner. The elimination of excess steps in the cleansing process helps to prevent harm from excessive stress to delicate skin.

We suggest using 1 dropper, if used in the morning without makeup, and 2 droppers for evening cleansing to remove heavy makeup, pollutants, or other impurities that may have accumulated throughout the day. Begin by spreading the precious cleansing blend evenly on dry skin and lightly massage. Wet your hands and massage well again without pulling the skin. The addition of water transforms the silky blend of oils into a comforting, light milky foam as it thoroughly removes makeup and impurities from the skin. The more impurities that are on your skin, the milker it becomes to lift them away. Rinse clean with lukewarm water. No washcloth needed. While this cleanser is formulated to cleanse thoroughly the first time, if you wish, you can repeat without worry about drying out or stripping your skin. Skin is left ideally clean and ready to better receive the benefits of the next steps in your skincare ritual.
