The concept of cleansing one’s face with oils and fats is something that has taken the beauty world by storm. Oil cleansers and cleansing balms offer a deep down clean by helping to dissolve oils that builds up and clogs the pores. Formulators have discovered that this concept can be customized endlessly by swapping out carrier oils, adding extracts and essential oils, and by working with specialty castor oils like our Organic Castor Oil or our Black Castor Oil.
Cleansing balms combine the benefits of oil cleansers with the ease of use of a solid balm or cold cream. These formulations rely on solid oils, such as coconut or babassu to give them texture and body. For added firmness, jojoba esters or wax can be added as well.
Take a look at the following cleansing balms offered by popular clean beauty brands for inspiration on crafting your own.
