The Oil Cleansing Method for All Skin Types
We’ve discovered the secret to improving dry, aging, sensitive, and even acne-prone skin. Our search for the perfect cleansing oil led us to a special oil that beautifies and purifies all skin types.
The Skin Care Secret That Started It All
Ancient beauty rituals have always informed and inspired my daily skin care routine. Traditional ingredients like pearl, sea kelp, and pomegranate are at the core of Rosa Y Fruta’s collection, and for good reason: modern science has revealed that these time-tested ingredients offer potent beauty benefits.
Despite their heavy white makeup and scarlet lips, we wondered how geisha maintain such lovely skin. A closely guarded secret of traditional geisha, we finally discovered their timeless ritual for soft, youthful skin: the oil cleansing method. Luckily for us, this ancient practice is just as effective for modern beauty mavens.
Why Traditional Soap-Cleansing Methods Backfire
With the widespread availability of soap, the oil cleansing method became less common. But we now know that foaming soap disrupts skin’s natural pH and strips the acid mantle, leaving your skin either too dry or too oily.
After the birth of my twins, my skin went from glowing and healthy to parched and lifeless. That is, until I discovered the oil cleansing method.
Why the Oil Cleansing Method Works
Unlike soap, oils bind with oils and dirt on your skin. They gently remove makeup and dissolve pore-clogging sebum, leaving your skin vibrant and hydrated and balancing your skin’s natural oil production.
There are many different oils used for cleansing: olive, castor, jojoba, almond, coconut, and grapeseed oil. However, many are inappropriate for certain skin types. In our quest for simple skin care, we searched the globe and found the best cleansing oil for all skin types…
White camellia oil, extracted from the white tea leaf, is both gentle and effective. Known as the “beauty oil of Asia”, white camellia oil is the geisha’s secret to flawless skin and is known for its anti-aging and antioxidant properties. We fell so in love with this precious oil that it became the basis of our entire collection.
Knowing that different clients needed different results from their cleanser, we created two versions of our premium white camellia oil: our pure white camellia spa oil for intense hydration, and a rinseable version to leave all skin types skin feeling clean and fresh.
How to Use the Oil Cleansing Method
The oil cleansing method is remarkably simple. First, rub the oil into dry skin to break up dirt and oil. Add a few drops of water and massage into a later. Then wipe off the excess oil with a washcloth or rinse clean.
Some clients have no difficulty transitioning to the oil cleansing method, but it’s normal for your skin to take a week or two to adjust. You may notice extra oiliness or breakouts at first due to the detoxification process your skin is going through. Please be patient while your skin corrects itself, and your skin will soon look better than ever.
