Our gentle cleansing oil restores balance without stripping the skin. The oil turns to a light cleansing milk on contact with water, washing away impurities, SPF and make up. Infused with anti-inflammatory seaweed to help soothe strengthen your skin barrier, and naturally anti-bacterial hemp extract, your skin will be left feeling soft and clean.
Free from essential oils and fragrance, our restorative Balance Cleansing Oil is suitable for all skin types.
The Oil Epiphany
One of the biggest concerns is the fear of putting oil onto oily skin but oil is one of the best antidotes to acne. The reason for this is that cleansing with harsh chemicals strips the skin of oil. When this happens your skin works to overproduce more oil to overcompensate, upsetting the natural balance of your skin.
Adding oil to your skincare routine, allows your skin to retain moisture, protect the skin barrier, infusing linoleic acid that helps pores remain decongested. Your skin receives a healthy dose of minerals and nutrients, while simultaneously removing dead skin cells and any dirt from the day. And the best bit is your face will feel good after cleansing and not tight or dehydrated. Remember: tight skin is thirsty skin. So if you have acne and you’re nervous it’s totally understandable but give it a try, you will never look back once you experience the oil epiphany for yourself.

Rituals for Use
Massage two pumps of the cleansing oil into the face. Splash with warm water and remove the cleanser thoroughly with a warm washcloth. While skin is still damp, follow with a few drops of Nurture Face Oil.
Take a moment for yourself, inhale deeply and exhale, relax your shoulders, release your jaw, and soften your shoulders.
Why P & P Skincare?
The seaweed used in Phoenix & Providence skincare is grown in the crystal clear waters surrounding the Isles of Scilly, 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. The seaweed is foraged from the shores of the beautiful island of St. Martin’s, dried in the Scillonian sunshine and infused in organic jojoba oil for a full lunar cycle.
You can find out more about Seaweed Harvesting on the Isles of Scilly on the Phoenix & Providence journal.
Seaweed is rich in anti-oxidants and essential vitamins that help promote collagen, improving skin tone, texture and elasticity. The anti- inflammatory properties of seaweed, along with a unique blend of minerals, help soothe and repair, making it the perfect ingredient for all skin types.
