Tea Tree essential oilTea Tree essential oil

Oil for your skin? It might seem counterintuitive, but Tea Tree essential oil has incredible cleansing properties that make it a popular choice for skin care products. This oil is great for all skin types but is especially suited for use on oily skin.

How to use it:

  • Try it as a spot treatment by placing a drop on the end of a cotton swab and dabbing lightly onto blemishes.

Rosemary essential oil

Tea Tree isn’t the only oil that’s great for healthy-looking skin! We love Rosemary essential oil for more than its energizing herbal scent. It’s also a great addition to your facial cleansing routine, leaving your skin feeling fresh and bright!

How to use it:

  • Combine 1 drop of Rosemary with 4 drops of V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex. Dip a cotton ball in the solution and apply it after you wash your face.

Maximum Strength Acne Treatment

Our Maximum Strength Acne Treatment is packed with naturally derived ingredients! Maximum strength salicylic acid from Wintergreen helps clear acne blemishes, and essential oils such as Tea Tree and Manuka offer additional benefits for your skin. Aloe and chamomile extracts help keep skin soft and moisturized for a treatment that’s both powerful and gentle.

How to use it:

  • Wash your face thoroughly and cover the entire affected area with a thin layer of Maximum Strength Acne Treatment 1-3 times daily.

Note: Even though this product is formulated to be gentle, drying can occur. Begin with one application daily and gradually increase to 2-3 times daily if needed. If dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to one time a day or every other day.

Orange Blossom Facial Wash

Successful skin care starts with a great facial cleanser! When it’s time to wash your face, reach for our Orange Blossom Facial Wash. It’s made from naturally derived ingredients, including Lavender essential oil, and is great for sensitive skin. The hypoallergenic formula gently cleanses surface oils and removes dirt and makeup without making your skin feel overly dry or tight.

How to use it:

  • Create a clean slate for your morning and nighttime skin care routine. Wet your face with warm water and gently rub a small amount of Orange Blossom Facial Wash into your skin; rinse with warm water and pat dry.

It’s formulated to benefit oily skin without irritation from harsh chemicals!

How to use it:

Charcoal Bar Soap

Activated charcoal has powerful absorption properties, making it perfect for pulling out dirt and impurities without stripping your skin’s natural moisture. Our Charcoal Bar Soap has a naturally derived formula that includes powerful skin-cleaning agents, moisturizing ingredients, and a bright, fresh scent. It’s great for multiple skin types and especially benefits combination, oily, or acne-prone skin for a clear, healthy-looking complexion.

How to use it:

  • Use as a facial cleanser by working the soap into a lather and applying it to your face in a gentle, circular motion; rinse thoroughly with warm water.
