Skin Type: Ultra Sensitive, Eye Area, Oily/Problem, All types and ages
Free is a duo-purpose, restorative gel cleanser for when you need to remove difficult makeup and all the day’s dirt in one easy, energizing wash.
Free is the ideal match for the most reactive and allergic skin types due to it’s super pure, simple, and elegant botanical construction. Its ingredients may be easy to understand, but don’t underestimate the uniqueness of how they work together. Together in this beautifully balanced gel herbs, soapbark, and gentle organic oils come together to rinse skin clean and balance it all at once.
Organic, food-grade Soapbark extract makes a slightly bubbly gel for your face that everyone can enjoy. An infusion of organic Yerba Mate sweeps over your skin bringing with it 196 bio-active compounds. That’s more than the ever-popular Green Tea.
The 11 Polyphenols Yerba Mate boasts help improve the appearance of skin on a daily basis. Combined with hydrating Olive Leaf, Linden, Self Heal (Prunella), and gentle Cornflowers your skin has every reason to be restored. Even the delicate eye area can be easily washed free of waterproof makeup without tugging or any skin distress.
This gel rinses to a lighter and almost “squeaky” clean than our Fresh Mild Rice Cleanser. It’s still free of any actual soaps though, and is the correct, skin-friendly, acidic PH. A bit of organic Sunflower seed oil adds Vitamin E and keeps skin from being overly dry post-cleanse.
Free is also decidedly and appropriately “free” of even natural origin irritants. Free is unscented and smells pleasantly only of the natural base ingredients, has no ethyl alcohol (grain alcohol), gluten, or nut ingredients, and avoids the usual list of synthetic nasties that never appear in our recipes. If you have really reactive skin then this cleanser is suitable for you.
Awards and reviews for our Best Facial Cleanser – Sensitive Skin and Oily Skin
Free won Best Facial Cleanser in the Kiwi Natural Beauty Awards in 2015.
Kristen Arnett of Green Beauty Team named this face wash gel the “Best Facial Cleanser for Oily Skin” in her 2016 Best of Green Beauty Awards.
How to use
Moisten face. Dispense 2 or 3 pumps into hands and apply to skin including eye area for gentle eye makeup removal. Massage gently to remove daily impurities. Remove with warm water, using a washcloth for extra exfoliation and waterproof makeup removal. Pat dry. Tone and moisturize.
Using hands alone will generally not pick up enough makeup, especially if you have larger pores where makeup tends to settle, or particularly stubborn waterproof makeup. Use a washcloth and make sure to use warm water instead of cold to allow the cleanser to work its best for complete removal of makeup.
Each 4 oz container is approximately a 1 month supply when used twice daily.
