Oatmeal - This forms the base component of Face Cleansing Powder. A humble yet highly nutritious food that is also beneficial when applied to the skin. It contains saponins, natural soap-like substances that gently mop up dirt and degrade bacteria, as well as anti-inflammatory mediators – this is why oatmeal baths are a traditional treatment for soothing itchy inflamed skin. In addition it contains anti-oxidants, helps restore moisture balance to the skin, and has anti-fungal properties.
Neem powder - Neem is known in India as the ‘village dispensary’, because of its use in Ayurvedic therapies for a wide variety of disorders. Virtually all parts of the neem tree are used, where they may be taken internally or externally, depending on the condition. Our Face Cleansing Powder contains dried neem leaves, which have anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory actions as well as extremely potent anti-oxidant properties.
Lemon peel powder - Lemon peel is a natural astringent, bactericide and antiseptic. It contains a number of acids, including citric acid, which aids in lightening the skin, breaking down oils and skin debris, and encouraging skin renewal. It is also rich in anti-oxidants, including vitamin C.
Coconut flour - this is made from the coconut ‘meat’ after extraction of coconut oil. It is highly absorbent and also has fine exfoliating properties. It contains trace minerals, vitamin C and other anti-oxidants.
Rose petals - Dried rose petals retain small amounts of precious rose oil, in addition to other beneficial components not present in the oil. They contain vitamins A , B and C as well as minerals. They are anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, mildly astringent and help regulate sebum production.
Green clay - Like all clays, green clay is extremely rich in minerals. Its main function in Face Cleansing Powder is to absorb oils, dirt and other impurities from the deeper layers of the skin, as well as providing gentle exfoliation. When left to dry, clay raises the temperature of the skin, helping to draw out excess sebum and improving circulation.
Tulsi leaf - Also known in India as ‘Holy Basil’, Tulsi is widely used internally in Ayurvedic treatments for a variety of conditions. Rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, as well as iron and zinc, it is also anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal.
Wheatgrss - Well known as a rich source of chlorophyll, vitamins, enzymes, minerals and anti-oxidants.
