Inspired by the classic Ayurvedic beverage that Apis’s founder was introduced to by Indian relatives when she was still a tween, this balm takes oil cleansing to a whole new level. A deep whole-plant infusion of cooling, reparative herbs organically grown on our own farm joins with rich, nourishing butters and oils to soothe and moisturize damaged, acne prone skin. A healthy dose of turmeric Co2 extract modulates and prevents inflammation while cardamom opens the sacral and heart chakras, helping us feel calm and comfortable in our own beautiful, unique skin. It is capable of fully removing even heavy make up. Most importantly, no steaming necessary which can irritate already inflamed skin- this cleanser preserves and builds our skin’s intuitive, all-important moisture barrier.
To Use: With dry hands, massage a pea-size amount onto dry skin for 1-2 minutes, really giving attention to every corner of your face. Then, moisten your hands and massage your skin again, transforming the balm into a milk. Splash with warm water until your face feels clean and moisturized.
