SOS CLEANSE & TONE
Skin is naturally slightly acidic (pH 4.5). The water we use to bathe & shower is quite alkaline (pH 7 to 9) so …. it makes sense to cleanse the skin with a product that is also slightly acidic to save the body the effort of reestablishing it’s own pH balance (this can take over 12 hours depending on how long you swam/soaked/showered).
Like any other natural bodily function and immune response, the body must reestablish it’s natural condition and levels before it can properly combat: blemishes, aging, toxins, daily damage, injury, or illness.
SOS Cleanse & Tone uses organic apple cider vinegar with organic rooibos tea and the SOS Blend powerhouse essential oils of tea tree and frankincense oil to minimize the appearance and intensity of blemishes, blackheads, whiteheads, redness, puffiness and swelling as well as reduce the likelihood of scarring, scabs and large pores while cleansing and, most importantly, balancing pH.
FOR FACE: Spray our delicious, fragrant SOS cleanser & toner straight onto the face (eyes closed) and massage in well before wiping excess away with a DRY cloth at least 3 times a day OR spray liberally on a dry disposable or washable wipe to cleanse face in upward – outward strokes at least 3 times a day. Using a wipe is my favorite for the very satisfying look at all the dirt and gunk that came off my face onto the wipe.
FOR BODY: use water only in the shower with a loofa or bath brush. Then, after toweling dry, mist the entire body concentrating on underarms, private areas and feet to quickly reestablish pH levels while deodorizing. Every time you do this you save the body the effort of re-balancing it’s own pH while maintaining cleansed, natural oil and flora levels. Many people, even those with severe acne on the face, find SOS Cleanse & Tone too strong for the skin on the body causing dryness and tightness. Check out our GLOW Cleanse & Tone to alleviate this issue.
Organic compounds naturally occurring in SOS blend: limonene, linalool
