Moisturise, cleanse, exfoliate, nourish, repair and protect from one revolutionary little pot.
We have blended 100% Natural oils including Shea Butter, Babassu Oil, Macademia Nut, Jojoba Oils and essential oils with our home grown Calendula to create this Natural Beauty Balm.
Natually free of artificial fragrance and colour, by leaving out the water, we can also avoid all antimicrobial preservatives (like parabens and phenoxyethanol) and emulsifiers, making this product completely free of artificial chemicals and suitable for very sensitive skin.
Water-free also means you get 100% active ingredients bursting with a myriad of vitamins, antioxidants and beneficial compounds to nourish your skin and halt the free-radical damage that causes premature ageing. Because we only use cold pressed, unrefined oils and because we cold blend them, we maximise the beneficial compounds preserved in the final product.
We have chosen rich, yet light oils that are easily absorbed right into the deepest layers of the epidermis. Used correctly (sparingly) you will find this product absorbs remarkably quickly, leaving no greasy residue. And you will find a conveniently small jar lasts a very long time.
Dry skin is caused when skin barrier fails and excessive moisture escapes. The epidermis dries out, cracks appear, more moisture is lost and a vicious circle ensues. The epidermis keeps drawing moisture from the dermis below, if dry skin is left unchecked the dermis will eventually dry out and sag, causing premature wrinkling.
Applying a water-based moisturiser will initially help as the water in the product temporarily plumps the skin, but that water soon evaporates if skin barrier is not maintained and you have to quickly apply again (sound familiar?)
Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm moisturises and protects by repairing and maintaining skin’s barrier function, restoring skin's ability to seal in moisture. Undiluted plant oils contain all the fatty acids required to repair skin barrier, for plumped hydrated skin that lasts all day.
Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm is water-free so no need for emulsifiers, which can wreak havoc with your skin's delicate balance by emulsifying those vital natural oils.
The Oil Cleansing Method (or Hot Cloth Cleansing) is based on the principle that ‘like dissolves like’. When you try it you’ll see how easily natural plant oils dissolve dirty sebum, grime and make up, even waterproof mascara.
When you cease using soap or cleansers containing detergents on your face, you’ll stop stripping the skin’s natural oils, improve skin barrier function and instantly achieve better skin hydration. That means more youthful, plumped, glowing skin all day long. (For method see directions for use tab)
Many women are amazed at the transformation seen when switching to oil cleansing. If you have dry skin (which many of us do) you will have wrinkles that simply don't need to be there, they really are reversible - and oil cleansing will instantly remove those premature wrinkles.
Cracks in the your skin's lipid barrier also allow invasion by pathogens, causing spots, fungal or bacterial infections, allergic reactions and flare ups of chronic skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis (this can happen to oily skin too). Repairing and maintaining skin barrier will reduce breakouts and infections in both dry and oily skin.
Oily skin has traditionally been treated by stripping excess natural oils, but more and more people with oily skin are realising this can disrupt skin barrier causing breakouts and often makes the skin overcompensate, so it produces more sebum, exacerbating the problem. Regular moisturising with the right natural oils will rebalance the skin and reduce breakouts. We have been very careful to only include non-comedogenic oils in this Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm, this means it wont block pores or cause breakouts. Clary sage and Palmarosa essential oils naturally re-balance sebum production.
If you have oily skin definitely consider trying the Oil Cleansing Method to prevent stripping natural oils when cleansing and help your skin naturally re-balance. If you are not sure, try out our Beauty Balm for just £1.99.
Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm contains Calendula home grown on our farm. Calendula has been proven to promote collagen regeneration and speed healing of any minor inflammations. We also make a Calendula Cream which contains a much more potent dose of the herb.
This product does not contain a sunscreen and will not prevent you from burning. However, our blend of tropical oils that have evolved to be extraordinarily sun-stable by way of their high antioxidant content, will boost you skin's natural sun protection systems and reduce long term photo damage by neutralising free radical scavenger cells.
This balm can be used as a base under a mineral sunscreen (the safest and most natural type of sunscreen). Mineral sunscreens can be difficult to use, our beauty balm can be used to lubricate the skin making it easier to apply them evenly. To do this apply beauty balm a little more liberally than you would normally and apply sunscreen quickly afterwards before beauty balm completely absorbs.
This is a super rich natural beauty balm will tackle problem dry skin, perfect for lips, heels, ankles, knees, elbows.
We insist on 100% natural ingredients never treated with heat or solvents, but not always organic. We carefully choose organic ingredients when the benefits justify the cost. This is a very deliberate decision which enables us deliver the purest skin care at the best price. For further explanation of this see our organic vs natural page.
Each jar sold has a best before date and a batch number. The fragrance in this product comes only from the pure essential oils. There are no artificial colours or chemical preservatives in this product.
