Ever used a waterless cleansing balm before?
Posted on January 14 2020
I've always liked balms and it was therefore an obvious addition to o.Moi range of products to have a cleansing balm.
It took me more than a year to finally reach the one that was totally satisfying in terms of texture, scent and results, the perfect blend of plant oils, clays, and essential oils among other ingredients.
The Moringa & Cherry Cleansing Balm is 100% natural and has a waterless formulation. Therefore since it is devoid of water, there is no need to have any preservatives.
The 5 plant oils that were meticulously chosen for our cleansing balm are:
Moringa Oil :
The Moringa oil used, is 100% pure and contains in excess of 70% natural Oleic acid, making Moringa a very penetrative oil which naturally has excellent cleansing ability whilst moisturising. On top of that, Moringa is a powerful natural antioxidant.
Hemp Oil : Hemp Oil is nature's richest source of polyunsaturated fatty acids, renowned for their excellent emollient properties and to increase the moisture retention of the skin, keeping it soft and supple.
Cherry Oil : It is light oil, rich in Vitamin A, antioxidants and Oleic acid and provides excellent emollient results in improvements of dry skin and refinement of large pores.
- Olive Oil : Cold-pressed from Italy, olive oil has excellent moisturising properties as well as is ideal in cleansing the skin.
- Castor Oil : It is naturally antiseptic, anti-fungal and anti-viral, has great moisturising properties and helps in smoothing wrinkles.
There is also the addition of 3 different kinds of clay: White, Red & Bentonite.
White clay or Kaolin is a gentle clay that acts as a mild exfoliant, ideal for sensitive skin, leaving it clarified and glowing.
Red clay is high in iron and effective for a skin detox, by drawing out impurities and dirt from the skin, hence toning and deep cleansing it.
Bentonite is also excellent for detoxifying and removing impurities, excess sebum from the skin as well as has calming properties on inflamed breakouts.
To impart our holistic signature and instant well-being upon application of the cleansing balm, the cocktail of Ylang-Ylang, Bergamot, Eucalyptus and Lime has been added.
How to use it:
Depending on how much makeup you have, scoop some of the Moringa & Cherry Cleansing Balm and warm in between your fingers before gently massaging it on your face and eyes. The balm will melt into an oil texture and dissolve your eye and face makeup. Then damp your fingertips and massage again the face and eyes. The oil texture transforms into a milky lather upon contact with water.
Afterwards, use a damp cotton pad to remove the dissolved makeup and rinse with lukewarm water. Pat dry with a face towel.
The skin feels soft, cleansed, fresh and clarified without any feeling of greasiness.
