We all know about macronutrients- those big chunks of energy delivery like proteins, carbohydrates, fats and sugars- they are the subjects of much continuous controversy about how much of each we need to chow down on for optimal health. Micronutrients are rarely discussed with the same gravity. Yet micronutrients make it possible for the matter of our bods to move, to think, to detoxify, to be nimble and flexible and sane. Often, micronutrients are delivered in a compact and potent way by, you guessed it: plants. Medicinal plants with their concentrations of alkaloids, essential oils, flavonoids, terpenes, etc., supercharge the innate, functional processes of our human bods. In short, a diet high in micronutrients help us be the best versions of ourselves.
Don’t forget that nutrients (and toxins for that matter) ain’t just in what you eat. We are porous, creatures- sponge like really. Your skin absorbs more than you’d think. With that in mind, you can feed your epidermal layer like you’d feed your favorite pet guinea pig. We get you, and your deep love for your guinea pig. That’s why we made our latest cleanser, Earth Polish. Packed with micronutrients, you can literally feed your face with herbal medicine. Rhassoul clay draws out the impurities that are a part of the daily grind, while herbs like rosehip seed work to modulate the effects of oxidative stress/how the world makes you shrivel. Goldenseal root has a long history of going toe to toe with all matter of microbes and reigning supreme.
For a finer polish that soothes and sloughs, Earth Polish is a micro exfoliant that you can use on the daily. Excellent for those prone to the pimples, but also rocking the sensitive skin.
Earth Polish combines the primal powers of earth and herbs to deliver a cleanser that gets at the bottom of built-up grime.
Take it to the next level and mix with Moon Milk to make cleansing paste: your skin will flip out with joy, so make sure you’re far away from sharp edges or flights of stairs.
To use: Tap out a nickel size amount in your palm and mix with water until the consistency is smooth and spreadable. Massage gently into your face focusing on the zones around your nostrils, the chin and between the brows where skin gets stagnant. Leave on for 2-20 minutes, then rinse.
Follow with a Fat and the Moon moisturizer to keep that cleansing conscious.
Caution: Keep your Earth Polish dry
