Brown Rice Milk & Honey Shower Cream - for oily skin
The two hero ingredients in this non-foaming shower cream, Brown Rice milk and Honey, are as natural as they come and have been used for centuries to help soothe and balance oily skin.
We make the brown rice milk by hand from fair trade organic long grain brown rice. The raw honey is made by English bees who feed on fields of Borage to the East of London.
The rice milk is made by gently cooking brown rice in purified water. We then blend the rice in more purified water releasing the B vitamins and oils into the mixture. We force the pulp through a nut milking bag which lets nutrients out while containing the husks and fibre.
It is thought that centuries ago in Japan, Geisha used leftover water from washing rice as a skin care ingredient leaving their skin soft, smooth and luminous skin
We source our honey from Local Honey Man who has Bees that are fed on the tiny blue flowers of the Borage plant, the oil of which is also used in skincare. The Honey we buy is raw, meaning it hasn’t been filtered or pasteurised. Raw honey contains enzymes, antioxidantes and antibacterials that are all good for the skin.
We have included sea salt in this body wash to help cleanse, soften and re-balance oil production in the skin and remove bacteria that can cause acne.
Alongside the brown rice milk and honey we use a combination of low comedogenic (meaning they won’t clog pores) oils to moisturise and cleanse the skin.
Firstly we add fractionated coconut oil. During fractionation long chain fatty acids are removed from the oil to make it lighter on the skin while still helping to plump and firm. Sweet almond is a lovely spreadable oil that helps all of the other ingredients distribute themselves onto your body. It also softens the skin, allowing for better hydration. We blend in castor oil which helps nourish the skin. Finally we add evening primrose oil which contains gamma linoleic acid which can help to dilute skin sebum.
We have fragranced this moisturising body wash with a tiny amount of mouthwatering edible caramel scent combined with Clary Sage essential oil and Ylang Ylang - leaving your skin feeling smooth and perfumed.
All of our shower creams have pH balanced around 5/6 - the natural acidity level of the skin. This helps protect the natural biome on the skin keeping it healthy and glowing.
When your skin is damp it is more permeable and easily nourished. In the shower is the time to feed and lock moisture into your body with our luxurious shower cream. To use, apply to damp skin, leave for a few seconds and then wash off excess.
