We’ve created a solid face oil bar made with just a handful of natural plant ingredients, which doesn’t need packaging. This is part of our new ‘Leave Only Footprints’ range, as we are very keen to look at how we can still have gorgeous, effective, natural skincare but that doesn’t leave you with a load of packaging at the end.
This solid face oil bar is a blend of just eight high-performing, natural plant ingredients that will leave your skin feeling nourished, hydrated and calm. The key ingredients are amazing Camellia Seed Oil and Apricot Kernel Oil – full of natural antioxidants, nutrients and skin smoothing properties.
It’s gently scented with just a touch of cedarwood and patchouli essential oils, both herbal, unisex aromas which makes this suitable for men and women.
It is wrapped in a tiny piece of grease-proof paper (which is FSC, compostable certified unbleached and totally chlorine free) inside a small paper bag, both of which can be composted or recycled. We recommend keeping the bar on the piece of grease-proof paper and keeping it somewhere cool and dry – it will melt if you leave is somewhere warm and sunny. You can, of course, buy the re-usable tin just once and keep it in that, if you prefer.
How to use your solid face oil
Just very gently warm the bar in the palm of your hand and gently rub it to release some of the oils into your hands, then massage this into your face and neck at night, or whenever you feel the need. Then place the bar back onto the grease-proof paper, or into the tin. You will soon get to know how much you need to warm and use.
The grease-proof paper is biodegradable and compostable.
I recommend keeping the bar wrapped or resting on the grease-proof paper somewhere cool and dry and out of the way of curious dogs.
Or invest in these new re-usable tins, which we’ve sourced at customers’ requests.
Here’s the key ingredients:
Apricot Kernel Oil: a light oil which is easily absorbed in the skin, high in essential fatty acids, linoleic and oleic acids, very nourishing and good for sensitive, dehydrated and mature skin, perfect for smoothing fine lines.
Camellia Seed Oil: the oil comes from the seeds of the tea plant, so it is high in antioxidants, and has high levels of oleic acid (more than 80%), as well as linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, stearic acid, triterpenes, saponins, and squalane. It locks in moisture, minuses wrinkles and keeps the skin looking young and healthy. It is also high in vitamin E and promotes new skin cell growth. It is light and non-greasy and absorbs quickly.
Jojoba: similar to our skin’s own sebum and is therefore very protective and prevents skin from drying out; it is rich in proteins and minerals and excellent for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Cornstarch: soothes irritation, helps to absorb excessive oil in the skin, so will balance sebum. Reduces redness and will calm acne and pimples by absorbing excess oil.
Shea Butter: a rich creamy butter, rich in nutrients and an excellent anti-aging ingredient, diminishes the appearance of skin blemishes including scars, burns, and rashes and is great for eczema.
We make this solid face oil bar weekly in small batches so it is always still full of skin-loving nutrients when it reaches you.
