Rich and Hydrating
Oil cleansers offer a rich and nourishing formula that’s designed to break down unwanted oils and makeup. These cleansers use botanical oils and natural extracts which act as solvents – pulling away impurities and excess oil, to leave the skin feeling clean and moisturised. Oil cleansers are formulated to be lightweight and rinseable, making them suitable for all skin types. But they’re particularly great for those of us who wear long-lasting or heavy makeup and are looking for a deep cleanse. Yep, you can use a plant-based oil as a natural eye makeup remover. When using an oil as an eye makeup remover, you simply rub it over the face like a cleanser as step one in a double cleanse or you can add it to a cotton wool pad and use it as a wipe. Sassy Organics only selects the purest natural and organic oil cleansers to feature in its growing range, so you can be sure your skin will be left cleansed and nourished.
Try the Unexpected
Although it might seem counterintuitive at first, an oil cleanser is also perfect for oily or acne-prone skin. Often, foam and cream cleansers will use surfactants, which can strip the skin of its natural moisture – leading to excessive oil production and acne. But carefully formulated oil cleansers, like this Australian made one from Black Chicken Remedies, will draw toxins out of the skin while protecting its natural oils. A jojoba oil cleanser is a popular option as jojoba oil shares a similar structure to our natural sebum/skin oil. Those with oily skin are definitely safe to try a jojoba oil cleanser as it's not oily and it's proven to balance natural oil production to prevent acne.
