Benedetta's Crème Cleanser for Most Skin has surpassed what Julia Faller, our Founder and Formulator, set out to accomplish in a cleanser.
A deliberate and concise mix of fresh, certified organic filleted aloe vera, nutritive oils, rose water, clay, and bee propolis are just some of the ingredients that make our Crème Cleanser for Most Skin a product that stands on its own. But suffice it to say, there is far more to this outstanding preparation than any single ingredient. Our micro-batch prepared Crème Cleanser for Most Skin is made over the course of 2 days and is always made with reverence for the intended user. Julia tells us constantly that there is a blessing in every bottle.
This authentic formula was based on Julia's own experience as an esthetician creating customized aromatherapeutic treatments for her clients. The first step in these facial treatments was to encourage circulation, move the lymph, and stimulate purification at deeper layers while also moving waste through the skin and back into the blood stream. Julia wanted to move away from harsh chemical-based solutions like your typical soapy, sulfate cleanser and instead opted for an oil-based approach. The challenge was to design a preparation that was capable of creating similar, if not better, results for home use, and get it stabilized in a bottle without petrochemicals like phthalates, parabens, and the like.
After 3 years of development, Benedetta's Crème Cleanser for Most Skin is the foundation for both our 5-Step Daytime Facial Regimen and 3-Step Nighttime Facial Regimen. Now 25 years since it was first created, we couldn't be happier and more humbled by its function. Designed to bring your skin into balance, our Crème Cleanser for Most Skin clears out congestion, exfoliates dead skin cells, and removes debris at even the deepest levels without stripping your skin of its natural hydration.
Both our 5-Step Daytime Facial Regimen and 3-Step Nighttime Facial Regimen begin with the same step: Step-1 Cleanse. This step is designed to prepare your skin for its best uptake of the following steps. In order to get the most out of your cleanser, we suggest first taking off your makeup, preferably with organic coconut oil or a similar non-sulfate based product.
