I haven't washed my face in 20 years!
Why? Because washing with water based cleansers strip the skin's sebum, a combination of lipids produced by the body to protect the epidermis from transepidermal water loss and peroxidation. Washing also temporarily changes the skin's surface pH from mildly acidic (pH 5.5) to alkaline which can create a favorable environment for hostile bacteria. It diminishes the number of friendly bacteria that constitute the skin's own signature microbiome, the ones acquired at birth that help maintain proper immune function.
Cleansing with oil, on the other hand, effectively breaks up and sweeps away makeup, dirt, debris and pollutants from the surface of the skin without disrupting pH or microbiome. When you cleanse using our water-free method there is absolutely no need to double cleanse (which actually defeats the purpose of cleansing with oils in the first place). Our oil cleanser is formulated to be used in conjunction with our Saffron Rose Toning Mist to create a micro emulsion that mimics the skin's own lamellar structure balancing and conditioning the skin. Our water free cleansing method also helps lymph flow while gently exfoliating.

Spray some Saffron Rose Toning Mist onto a cotton pad before pumping on oil. Gently press and sweep starting with the eyes and moving out. This stimulates lymphatic drainage and increases capillary blood flow resulting in clean, glowing, supple skin. No need to moisturize at night. The oils in our cleanser will nourish your skin while you sleep without interfering with cellular respiration.
