Sweet almond oil is the perfect natural skin care ingredient in an organic skin cleanser.
Physical beauty begins with a well-cleansed face. We must clean up all the dead skin debris and aid in the process of new cellular growth. The simple purpose of a cleanser is to remove dirt, oil and grime from your skin. This is the foundation of any skin care regime because you must start with fresh skin for the rest of the program to function properly. A quality organic skin cleanser helps the skin to breath better by helping remove debris without removing moisture and disrupting the skin’s acid balance.
I feel the best organic skin cleansers are made from almond oil soap, lily, vegetable glycerin and essential oils of lavender, rosemary, sage and lemon juice. A good cleanser should go on easily and be a pleasure to wash with.
