Fabula Botanicals staff are celebrating with family over Christmas and New Year and trying to get some time on our local beach and walks (for a change). While we still be around and working a little bit, please accept our apologies if we take a little bit longer to respond to or process your enquiry or order from Christmas Eve until 10th January.
Originally developed for women opting to go chemical-free during cancer treatments, this lovely vegan cleanser is now hugley popular with women everywhere because it cleanses AND feeds the skin.
It contains a lovely mix of the most gentle plant-based ingredients - grapeseed oil is extremely light, it tones skin and is rich in flavanoids which inhibit allergic reactions. Apricot oil is anti-inflammatory and leaves the face feeling soft and supple. Raspberry seed oil is full of vitamins A and E and essential fatty acids. Marshmallow root is extremely soothing and healing, gotu kola is considered the most rejuvenating herb in Ayurvedic medicine and is very beneficial for collagen formation and skin hydration, horsetail is full of skin-loving silica (which is essential for healthy skin) and has astringent properties to shrink pores and tone skin. Lavender pure essential oil is caring and nurturing and is thought to bring the warmth of protective love from Mother Earth. It lifts the spirit, bringing emotional balance to the psyche - so perfect in this cleanser.
Standard cleansers which foam or contain detergent ingredients can make the skin feel tight and dry and even start to cause irritation - it makes sense to choose products which feed the skin with healthy, healing ingredients rather than strip the natural acid mantle. An oil-based makeup remover is gentlest on an extremely sensitive skin, but suitable for all skin types - and it's so easy to use.
Best used with one of our makeup removal sponges (listed under 'Other') - wet sponge with warm water, squeeze out, then pop a little cleanser on the sponge and remove makeup with light upward strokes. Rinse sponge with warm water and repeat. You can even leave the cleanser on the face for a few minutes to let the healing botanicals absorb and then remove with warm water.
Fabula products are handmade and contain NO synthetic fragrances, sulphates, parabens or harmful colours.
