Cleansing twice daily is recommended, but if your skin is tight, burning or generally irritated after washing, it may be time to look into the ingredient list and switch to plant-based nutrients. Most face cleansers are not even made with real soap like days gone by. They are primarily comprised of sulfates that dehydrate and irritate your delicate facial tissue throwing off your pH levels. When this happens, your sebaceous glands will go into over-drive producing a protective, waxier than normal sebum, that traps dirt and bacteria in your pores. This is your skin's natural defense against ingredients that were never intended to be there in the first place.
If you are experiencing flakes, blackheads, irritation and excessively oily or dry skin it is time to make a change in the first step of your skincare routine. You may notice in our line that fruit, seed and nut oils are a big part of our product list. There is a term in chemistry called "lipophillic", which means oils dissolve oils. They cleanse the canal of each pore with emollients and antibacterial agents that have stood the test of time. Oils have been used to cleanse skin for thousands of years. Additionally, apothecary infused oils have a history dating back 4 thousand years in Egyptian medicine. We specialize in creating 39 Botanical Solar Oils that utilize the same technique used back then. Each of our herb, tea and root infused oils takes a minimum of 6 weeks to create. These organic infusions provide the best nature has to offer for cleansing away impurities, firming, refining pores, brightening and protecting our skin's lipid barrier.
Sweet Life Spa's "Sweet Face" Wash is crafted with real Organic Castile Soap, hydrating botanicals, Vitamin C dense super fruits, detoxifying clay with Aloe Vera as it's first ingredient. We stand firmly on the belief that skincare should be gentle. As someone that has struggled with extremely sensitive skin, developing a soothing face wash, cleanser, buff and mask was top priority for me in 2012. Our repeat customers rave about our face wash, cleansing grains and tropical masks and how they not only love the scent, but their skin feels healthy and soft after using our products. Not only are our products ultra-concentrated and long lasting, they are formulated without water, cheap fillers, sulfates, soy, petrochemicals, parabens and phthalates.
Our Damascus Rose & Hibiscus "Sweet Face" Wash is petal pink and perfect for most skin types with a mild rose and fruit scent. If you are experiencing extremely oily or acne prone skin, we recommend our light citrus and floral Green Tea Ylang-ylang formula with deep detoxifying Bentonite and Moroccan Red Clay. Both formulas are unique blend of a mild foaming cleanser, the Oil Cleansing Method and a detoxifying face mask. There's nothing else quite like it on the market!

They are crafted with moisturizing Organic Bananas, Oats and Marshmallow and detoxifying ingredients like Plantain, Yarrow, Rhassoul Clay and Banana Flour. There is no need to wash your face after using our cleansing grains, but do remove your eye makeup and foundation with a tropical cleansing oil or our Sweet Cream of Coconut (below) first. Always moisturize after cleansing or the use of a face mask. We have serums and a face butter that are perfect for acne, scars, redness and excessive flakes or oiliness!

For makeup removal, including water-proof mascara, our "Sweet Cream" of Coconut has a fresh and tropical aroma and is loaded with essential fatty acids that hydrate and cleanse without irritation. This is the purest form of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil we have found on the market. It is cold pressed form mature coconuts within 2 hours of harvest, not dried and dirty copra often from China, like most coconut oils on the market. Due to its purity, we would consider "Sweet Cream" of Coconut to be a low 2 on the comedogenic scale. It deeply cleans and conditions with a vast amount of essential fatty acids and antibacterial properties. Your skin is radiant and refined after using this island beauty oil.
