Regular washing is one of the most traumatising things you can do to your skin. Your skin is tough, but it simply can't handle being stripped of oil all the time. Even if your skin is oily, overcleansing is not recommended as it could trigger your own skin's inflammatory response - to release the stored oil onto surface where it will sit instead of sinking in (when your skin is damaged by surfactants, the oil ends up in the wrong place). We believe that morning wash is not a necessary step for everyone. This toner contains a gentle emulsifier, which gently cleanses makeup residue and excess oil without stripping. It leaves skin hydrated, plumped, soft and smooth, ready for your next skincare step.
Suitable for: All skin types. Best for fussy, dehydrated skin. Restores moisture and radiance to thirsty skin in seconds. Best used as a morning toner/essence treatment. This is a pregnancy and breastfeeding friendly product.

White tea - The anti-inflammatory properties of white tea antioxidants can also help to reduce redness and inflammation caused by eczema.
Squalane - Similar to the skin’s sebum, squalane is one of the best natural emollients. It penetrates skin faster than any other oil, making it a great carrier for other actives. Squalane is also an antioxidant, prevents UV damage and the formation of age spots, promotes cell growth and is an antibacterial.
Eco glycerine - Our glycerine derives from rapeseeds and is organic and biodegradable. Ecocert
Pentavitin (Saccharide Isomerate) - A superior 100% natural and biodegradable emollient and humectant. Suitable to even the most sensitive of skin. Pentavitin is also wonderful at reducing irritation caused by acids. Ecocert
C-14-22 Alkyl Alcohol, C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside - An eco friendly, multifunctional and biodegradable emulsifier from a non GM origin. It creates a liquid crystal structure that has excellent skin compatibility and mimics the natural lipid layer of the skin's membrane. It has the ability to keep skin hydrated for up to five hours after application. Ecocert
Sunflower Lecithin - Lecithin is an emollient, which is a softening and soothing agent. Its powerful moisturizing properties help to keep the skin hydrated, making it an excellent additive for restorative creams, or for products designed for dehydrated and overworked skin. It also has the unique ability to deeply penetrate the skin, and carry substances deep into the dermis. It is composed of phosphoric acid, choline, fatty acids, glycerol, glycolipids, triglycerides, and phospholipids. Ecocert
Betaine - A multi-functional ingredient that acts as a humectant, anti-irritant and texture improver. Ecocert
Sodium Hyaluronate crosspolymer - Hyaluronic acid’s ability to replenish moisture is exremely impressive! One gram of hyaluronic acid can hold up to six liters of water. This moisture-binding characteristic is particularly important when it comes to skin aging. Hyaluronic acid can enhance moisture in skin beyond comparison with any other ingredient, and make skin look and feel softer, smoother and radiant. It really can instantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ecocert
Ceramide 3 - As skin identical lipids, ceramides restore moisture, reinforce the skin’s natural barrier and help protect it against harm from foreign elements. Ceramides are also particularly effective in treating the symptoms of eczema.
