The Cleansing Ritual

 Skincare Saturday


What am I cleansing my skin with, and what cleanser is right for my skin?

The ritual of skin cleansing dates back to the ancient Egyptians more than 6,000 years ago. The Egyptians made paste out of clay and olive oil to clean their skin. Later, the Greeks mixed berries with milk and applied the mixture to their faces. In Europe, cucumbers, aloe vera, and rosemary were used as cleanser.

Today, our Botanical Kinetics line honors the rituals and plant-derived ingredients our ancestors swore by for healthy, radiant skin.
