Ava Escentuals Organic Skincare Product Information
Cleansers contain a handmade liquid soap, made through the saponification of oil and lye, to create cleansing salts. These salts gently and effectively remove sebum, dirt, and other debris on the skin, allowing for the skin to breathe. The cleansing process enables the skin to better absorb the nutrients of any skincare product applied to the skin. Also found in a cleanser are handmade hydrosols and extracts, aloe vera, and essential oils. These provide many healing benefits to the skin. You will notice a reduction in blackheads and breakouts within a few weeks of using our cleanser, along with many more benefits.
Being gentle to the skin, the cleanser can be used up to two times a day, even by those with sensitive skin. Wet the face with warm water, take a small amount of cleanser into the palms and lather. In gentle, circular motions spread the cleanser onto the face for about 20-30 seconds. Rinse with cool water.
