Fan of the double-cleanse and curious about our new Fermented Camellia Creamy Cleansing Oil? Our first ever cleansing balm is finally back! Our Creamy Cleansing Oil is the next generation of cleansing balms -- what makes it so special is its D-Phase technology. It melts away makeup, oil and other impurities while leaving skin soft and nourished. Read more to learn all about what makes it so special.

Our Fermented Camellia Creamy Cleansing Oil is the perfect union of scientific advancement and nature’s green touch. This unique cleanser is a D Phase Gel powered by sugar derived surfactants and packed with linoleic-rich botanical oils and nutrient dense fermented camellia oil. D Phase Gels can be viewed as second generation oil cleansers but with some strikingly unique attributes. Like traditional oil cleansers, they make for a great first cleanse due to the primary solvent or composition being oil or oil soluble emollients. They effectively solubilize sunscreen, makeup, and sebum with ease and provide “sacrificial lipids” that a foaming cleanser removes in place of your natural skin lipids.




One unique feature of a D Phase Gel that sets it apart from typical oil cleansers is the incorporation of moisture binding humectants and water in a single translucent or transparent system. These systems contain 20-30% of a humectant like glycerin, an ingredient that every cosmetic chemist can wax poetic on. Glycerin is highly studied and extremely beneficial for the skin, relieving dryness, mimicking the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor, and softening the skin. Unfortunately glycerin is extremely sticky limiting the use level due to unpleasant aesthetics. The high oil load in D Phase Gels mitigates the stickiness of this moisture magnet lending a beautiful sensory experience to a highly efficacious product.


A huge benefit of incorporating humectants and water into an oil cleansing system, aside from skin moisturization, is the increased polarity they bring to the formula. Typically oil cleansers rely on PEGs to increase the polarity of the product making rinse-off with water easier. D Phase Gels have inherently more polarity than traditional oil cleansers and when diluted with water, D Phase Gels spontaneously transform into milky oil-in-water emulsions. Our Fermented Camellia Creamy Cleansing Oil uses natural, biodegradable sugar esters as our cleansing agents. These sugar esters are multifunctional and not only cleanse but increase the moisture content of the skin even after rinse-off for long term hydration and skin softness. These remarkable sugar esters also naturally thicken the oil based system creating a beautiful plush gel. Oils are inherently difficult to thicken and traditional oil cleansers are thickened into gels or balms by use of polyethylene or waxes. Our D Phase Gel allows for a very minimalist approach by using sugar esters that cleanse, thicken, and moisturize at once.


Our Fermented Camellia Creamy Cleansing Oil harnesses the power of fermented camellia oil. The fermentation process improves skin absorption, increases moisturization, improves makeup removal, and reduces greasiness when compared to the conventional oil. High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) also shows an increase in antioxidants released during the fermentation process making the fermented oil more nutrient rich. Our Creamy Cleansing Oil with fermented camellia oil and camellia extract provide a glowing complexion while a blend of phyto-nutrient rich jojoba oil, chia seed oil, and moringa seed oil imbue the skin with lasting hydration. This product works for every skin type and when used as a first cleanse pairs beautifully with our Fermented Rice Enzyme Cleanser.
