*Rose Cleanser & Toner is formulated with a multitude of vital herbs to feed your skin countless combinations of plant goodness as it gently cleanses. It heals as it soothes, refines, and balances, leaving the skin exquisitely clean, toned, and deeply nourished.
Rose Cleanser/Toner was born from decades of searching for products that DO WHAT I NEED THEM TO DO and NOURISH skin at the same time.
I have struggled with sensitive skin and a lack of appropriate skincare options my whole life. Most cleansers I tried, even specialized boutique formulas, burned my face and left my skin stripped and irritated. Others didn't hurt, but also didn't clean effectively. I was always looking for something else, something more. I wanted my skin to feel healthier AFTER cleaning than it did BEFORE.
In 2014 it had been nearly ten years since my family and I had moved from Los Angeles to Asheville, North Carolina. During that time, I had become obsessed with learning about the nourishing and healing powers of medicinal plants – this ancient knowledge is long associated with this particular part of Appalachia.
One day I noticed my cleanser-du-jour running low. I was not particularly excited about the product, so having to call and order from LA filled me with a dull, familiar dread. That moment is when it hit me -- If I want something that feels good and does what I need it to do, I will have to make it myself. And if I was going to do it myself, I was going to start with the timeless wisdom I had gleaned from the natural world.
That same day I gathered a list of plants I thought would be helpful to my skin and started figuring out ways to incorporate them into a cleanser. I wanted a product that would clean thoroughly but act gently. Feeding and healing my skin at the same time. I wanted a cleanser that would tone my skin as well. A "cleanser/toner". Why not?
That product turned into the Lavender Cleanser/Toner, and it was a huge success. After several weeks of LOVING my first formula, I started sharing my discovery with friends and family. The response was so positive that many of them asked for more right away. One dear friend loved it, too, but wondered if there was a way to make it even more suitable for her dry skin. So was born SOiL's Rose Cleanser/Toner. Rose is a buddy to all types but bestie to dry skin. It has a long list of antioxidants that neutralize damage from free radicals and protects from premature aging. Rose is an excellent emollient, and of course, it's nearly impossible not to love the smell! The synergy among the ingredients means the Rose Cleanser/Toner cleans, tones, and nurtures all in one. It was formulated to help those with dry or mature skin but supports all skin types.
Though not initially created to sell, I am thrilled that SOiL's Cleanser/Toners are out in the world to help others the way they've helped my loved ones and me. I hope they bring health to your skin by putting a little green medicine magic in your life -- with love and healing from the plants, to me, to you.
