Your skin is hydrophobic, meaning that water can dry it out; but, your skin is also lipophilic, which means that it absorbs oil. There are not many things that can make it through the epidermis to the actual dermis of your skin, but essential oils do, which is amazing because they are also a great bio available nourishment!
At Pranic Forest, we have two cleansing oils, both which are incredible for facial cleansing, body adornment, or even added to a bath.
Viridis oil contains comfrey, which is grown by Amanda, our master herbalist, and is then broken down into an oil. Comfrey contains a large amount of allantoin, which makes your skin produce more rapid cells and heal itself. It also contains essential oils that really clears out pores, including mint, which is super cooling to the skin.
Ingredients: virgin apricot kernal oil, camellia seed oil (green tea seed oil), coconut oil, comfrey, and essential oils of cypress, hinoki, eucalyptus radiata, peppermint, Himalayan Cedarwood, and sweet orange, and yarrow
How to use:
**if you are highly sensitive, avoid the eye area
Pour a small amount of oil onto palms and work onto face and neck, cleansing the skin and removing makeup. Once cleansing is complete, take a soft cloth with hot water and begin to wipe the oil clean. It's very important to use a cloth with this method, as just splashing water alone on the skin will not remove the oil.
Follow up with Hyaluronic Acid Serum, and then your Facial Oil.
Comes in a 4 ounce frosted glass dropper bottle.

My face feels so renewed and fresh after using this clarifying oil. I love how forest-y it smells.
The older & newer formulations of Viridis have been perfect for my skin. I have combination skin which deals with acne, hormonal acne, blackheads, dry patches, dry & oily patches, and balanced areas. This cleanser seems to keep every part of my face happier than any other type of cleanser that I've used (including other oil cleansers). One suggestion I have, is looking into other packaging options for transport, as about 1/8th of my oil had leaked from the bottle into the tissue packaging & the shipping box from my order. It might help to have a separate cap that has a firmer seal for transport, and include the dropper on the side.
From the very first use, I felt a huge difference in my skin. I have been using harsh detergents on my skin for a long time and it never occurred to me to use oil to pull oil out. My skin feels soft but younger too.
I started using this cleanser after battling a never ending cycle of cystic acne all over and around my chin. It would never go away, left my skin scarred, and throbbing. This cleanser is pure magic. Not only has oil cleansing restored balance back to my skin, but it has also helped it heal. Pranic Forest products are made with intention and love, and you can feel the difference.
