The Oil Cleansing Method, or OCM for short, is a daily cleansing routine for removing make-up and dirt. Use high-quality oils that bring your skin back into balance and supply it with important nutrients. You will love the effect!
Many are initially sceptical when they hear that you should clean your face with oil. How does it work? Here you can find a simple principle that you may still know from chemistry class: “Like dissolves like” - the applied oil dissolves blackheads and dirt when it is massaged over the skin. It removes impurities and cleanses thoroughly.
You don't have to worry that your skin will get dry from the intensive cleansing. Because we use 100% natural and organic oils for our cleansing oil, it also contains many vitamins and essential fatty acids that care for the skin and do not dry it out.
Many conventional cleansing, washing lotions, and make-up removal products contain substances that destroy your skin barrier and make it permeable. We recommend the oil cleansing method because it is gentle and thorough, and does not cause irritation.
The method is suitable as a daily cleansing routine for all skin types and, this may surprise you, is particularly helpful for oily skin, as the oil has an antibacterial and healing effect and helps to regulate the skin's own sebum production. If your skin is very dry, you can remove the oil with a reusable make-up removal pad instead of washing it off. Make sure to use the oil every day to remove make-up; the result is a cleaner complexion and greater relief for your skin.
And this is how oil cleansing works:
- Pump a few drops of oil onto your fingertips
- Now massage your face gently to distribute the cleansing oil over the skin. Make sure you take your time and don't miss any spots - you can do this massage for up to 10 minutes
- Leave the oil on the face for a minute or two (we like to brush our teeth in between).
- Wash your face with lukewarm water - done!
Our cleansing oil can do even more!
Our Organic Cleansing & Detox Oil frees you from make-up and dirt in no time at all. Because oil cleansing is also good for acne, we use calendula extract and wild rose oil, which promote wound healing. Both have a strong regenerative effect on the tissue, and wild rose oil also counteracts redness, eczema, and psoriasis.
A particularly nourishing ingredient is avocado oil, which is characterised by its hydrating properties. It effectively reduces skin imperfections, refines the skin texture and also promotes wound healing.
Apricot kernel oil and jojoba oil are used as additional moisturising and stabilising components. Both have a strengthening effect on connective tissue.
A particularly high proportion of oleic acid makes it easy to apply the cleansing oil while also allowing the skin barrier to open temporarily, in order to achieve deep cleansing and to supply the skin with active ingredients.
Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory components such as essential oils, rosemary extract, olive oil, and apricot kernel oil also prevent inflammation.
Integrate oil cleansing into your daily skincare routine - your skin will thank you for it!
