An everyday cleansing balm to gently remove makeup, pollution and impurities. Skin is deeply cleansed, soothed and hydrated.
Reused, repurposed, reloved. This cleansing balm is made with the finely-ground powder of discarded apricot stones, a natural by-product of the apricot oil industry and rich in antioxidant Vitamin E.
The balm is suitable for all skin types. The apricot stone powder is combined with skin-calming blackcurrant seed, blue tansy and sea buckthorn oils.
This balm is best used as the first cleanse as it breaks down make-up, SPF and any oils (sebum, sweat) on the surface of the skin.
Follow with a water-based cleanse (like our chai soaps) to remove any impurities in the pores
The balm was awarded "Best Value" product in the Women’s Running 2020 Product Awards.
Each product in the UpCircle range sources and rescues by-products from other industries – the food and drink industry in particular. In recent years they have seen the dramatic rise of natural, then organic, then vegan and cruelty-free beauty, but they believe circular / by-product beauty will be the next step – UpCircle are proud to be pioneering that movement.
Packaging - Housed in a glass jar with aluminium lid in fully recyclable packaging.
