Derma Botanica No. 1 cleansing oil balances your skin and locks in hydration — the perfect cleansing oil for sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Unlike traditional soap or detergent-based cleansers, Derma Botanica No.1 helps to preserve your skin’s natural lipid layer and protects the “good” bacteria that live there.
Traditional cleansers can irritate your skin, cause excessive dryness and can even make acne worse. Our skin is home to millions of bacteria, fungi and viruses — the skin’s microbiota. Our skin’s microorganisms are like those in our gut and have a vital role in the protecting our skin from invading pathogens. Many cleansers are too harsh and strip the skin of this natural protection.
There’s a myth that using oil on your face will cause breakouts and clog pores. The truth is your face will thank you when you nourish it with facial oils. “Like dissolves like”, so an oil-based cleanser will completely remove the oils found in most foundation, lipstick and eye make-up.
