How and When to Use
Use daily to gently remove makeup, pollution and impurities. Can also be used to remove mascara and eye makeup.
With dry hands take a coin-sized amount and massage between your fingers and onto face in upward circular motions. Remove with a warm, damp cloth to reveal a clearer, brighter complexion. Best used as the first cleanse to break down make-up, SPF and any oils (sebum, sweat) on the surface of the skin. Follow with a water-based cleanse (like our chai soaps) to remove any impurities in the pores. Suitable for daily use.

Product Origin / Manufacture
Made from waste / by-product materials by UpCircle, right here in the UK.
"Our ultimate mission is to leave the world better than we found it by transforming ingredients that would otherwise be discarded into natural, organic beauty products – better for you, better for the world. Each product in our range sources and rescues by-products from other industries – the food and drink industry in particular.
The circular economy sits at the heart of what we do – we even named ourselves after it! If we can provide competitively priced, high performing products from upcycled ingredients then we are demonstrating that the beauty industry can become a lot less wasteful – it is an innovative approach and a fresh perspective."
