Cleansing is known to be important to our skin - but sometimes, we need to go a little deeper! Exfoliation goes one step further, ensuring to polish and buff away residues and dead skin cells. At the same time, it can be seen to reinvigorate skin, leading to a fresh and renewed appearance. But many products take a harsh approach, using harsh chemicals that can be uncomfortable on sensitive complexions. At the same time, while they may be used to reduce an oily look, they can push skin too far, and lead to an overreaction in sebum production. With all the amazing abilities of nature, why wouldn’t we want to make use of them in every aspect of our skincare?
We may think of these amazing plants as belonging in the kitchen cupboard before making their way into a steaming hot brew - but they can do so much more!

They contain high amounts of tannins, compounds associated with aiding in addressing the look of redness in skin, as well as numerous protective, innately cleansing factors. With a rich, layered texture, and varisized particles, they can address skin’s needs at every level. Now employed by luxury spas and in cosmetic products everywhere, they’re surely the next big thing for us and our complexions.
