A Cleansing Routine without Harsh Chemicals

We cover both ends of the skin spectrum in our family. Incredibly sensitive skin through to problematic, hormonal teenage skin with the teenage ‘don’t want the pimples but can’t be bothered with too much fuss’ attitude.

I’ve just been using water and a washcloth for so long as I had given up trying to find a product that I could tolerate. I really wasn’t doing my skin any justice after not looking after it for so many years, and using a washcloth just seemed to move the dirt around – felt ok for a little while, but I yearned for that cared for, nourished skin feeling.

It was only when our children started to reach the age of needing some help with face cleansers, that I revisited our options, searching for a product with clean, nourishing ingredients, without preservatives, petroleum products or fillers, that we set about launching Whollygrail Face wash.

We knew we had a product that suited our broad needs at home (which meant we could easily have a jar in each bathroom instead of having a different product for each of us), and we spoke to so many people asking the same question – ‘what’s safe? what’s good?’.

Whollygrail Face Wash nourishes skin with silica and magnesium in Australian clay, and cleanses with our gentle and pure coconut soap and olive oil. All of these ingredients with the healing nature of lavender essential oil, leaves the skin clean and refreshed. Using a natural fibre cloth or sponge, such as the Kuu Konjac Sponges, ever so gently exfoliates and stimulates the skin surface.

The routine we recommend with the Whollygrail Face wash is a little different. Rather than providing you with another product to bring your skin back to it’s slightly acidic pH from the alkaline and drawing nature of the Face wash, we suggest you dilute a little lemon or apple cider vinegar (10:1) with water and lightly dab or splash on your skin. This is fresh, natural and brings your skin back to it’s preferred pH. Finally, simply sealing with an organic oil like our Jojoba or Sweet Almond Oil will lock in all of that goodness and have you feeling your best.
