This is not your average body wash. ACTIVATE may be used as both a daily cleanser or a deeply purifying mask. It has proven to treat even the most stubborn body acne as well as dry rough skin. It contains ingredients known to absorb impurities, soothe and soften skin, aid in cellular renewal, bring balance to oily skin, prevent and treat blemishes and help decongest both the skin and respiratory system.
To use as a cleanser apply ACTIVATE to damp skin. Massage to exfoliate, cleanse and nourish. Use circular, upward motions starting with the extremities and moving toward the heart. Although ACTIVATE should not stain, we recommend standing out of the water to avoid splatter and to concentrate product on your skin. It can also be applied as a mask prior to bathing. Massage onto dry skin and allow 3-10 minutes for product penetration before rinsing in the shower or bath. ACTIVATE is a welcome addition to warm baths and steamy showers during cold and allergy season as the steam will help volatilize the therapeutic oils of eucalyptus, balsam fir and palo santo.
Decyl Glucoside and Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate: combine to create an ultra mild surfactant blend that gently cleanses while moisturizing the skin. When clinically tested, it was shown that small amounts of sugar derived lactylate lay behind (still performing their moisturizing functions) after six weeks of wear and wash.
Dead Sea Salt: mineral rich and known to aid multiple skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne, hives and rashes.
Volcanic Ash: gently exfoliates dry skin to unclog pores, encourage cellular turnover and reveal smooth, radiant skin.
Activated Charcoal: proven to absorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances. Applied to the skin, charcoal helps draw out impurities to keep skin clean and clear.
Knotted Kelp: provides valuable sources of iodine, 14 vitamins, 16 amino acids and an endless number of unique marine-based compounds not found in terrestrial plants. Proteins, peptides, amino acids, fatty acids, polysaccharides, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants work in synergy with each other to soothe irritation, aid in cellular renewal and to eliminate impurities.
Vetiver Essential Oil: brings balance to oily skin and manages acne with antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic constituents. Regenerative qualities promote wound healing.
Eucalyptus Essential Oil: decongests pores, benefits the respiratory system and provides gentle immune support. Encourages healthy circulation and increased blood flow to the brain.
AROMA: Eucalyptus, Balsam Fir, Cedarwood, Vetiver, : Refreshing woods, resin, camphor.
