Facial Cleanser with Oat Bran


This is a cleanser especially suitable for oily and acne prone skin or otherwise irritated skin. Oat is an old household remedy known to be soothing, it has light exfoliating properties and also soaks up excess oil without drying the skin. This is blended with light oils and some Pure Olive Oil Soap. The essential oils have antiseptic properties and help reduce skin irritation due to bacteria. Some people with very oily skin may think they do not need to use a moisturiser afterwards. I recommend the regular use of my Light Moisture Facial Cream or the Organic Facial Oil for the Day to further improve the skin condition.

Suitable for people with Coeliac Disease
