Pangea’s Australian Wild Plum & Willow Facial Cleanser

- By: Aimee Regur

Cleansing our face is the harshest part of healthy skin care ritual, yet it’s very important. Throughout the day our pores do an amazing job of attracting dirt, toxins, and bacteria. In addition, the oil that our skin produces (sebum) also gets trapped under a layer of “the day” This stops our skin from doing its work of staying healthy and full of vitality. So cleansing is a must.

Pangea goes to great lengths to create cleansers that are as gentle as possible so that they remove what we don’t want and leave what we need. Our cleansers have what I call the art of the scientific balance of surfactants and active botanicals.

First we use gentle surfactants that are created using plant oils like olive and coconut that are gentle yet effective. Along with these surfactants we use some of the worlds most effective and bioavailable herbs and oils the earth has to offer.

Willow Herb: An excellent natural alternative to hydrocortisone, it’s a naturally soothing, anti-inflammatory botanical. Most issues we experience with our bodies can be rooted back to inflammation. It can be caused by what we eat,what we put on our skin, and what just ends up on our skin. Pangea has anti inflammatories in every product we create.

Wild Plum: Our Wild Plum is harvested in Australia and has three functions. It brightens the skin giving you that glow we are all looking for, it soothes possible irritations, and has amazing humectant properties that help the skin retain its natural hydration.

Elder Berry: These supercharged berries store substantial free-radical battling characteristics. The elderberry anti-oxidant content maintains the skin cells natural healthy state of being, leaving you with glowing, vibrant skin. Elderberry substances additionally behave as natural detoxifiers keeping the skin free of unpleasant skin disorders such as acne breakouts and dark spots.

Linden Flower: Simply put, this flower extract is the number one plant extract on earth to calm skin down. Are you seeing a trend here?

Argan Oil: Argan oil is unique in many ways: it’s a very light oil that absorbs quickly and is rich with vitamin A and vitamin E. However, argan oil is also packed with anti-oxidants, Omega-6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid. Because it is easily absorbed into the skin the tocopherol from the vitamin E helps to boost cell production – a pivotal key in a true longterm anti-aging regimen.

In short, as with all things in life the first step is the most important. I recommend gently cleansing your skin in the morning (while in the shower is best as your pores are open) and right before you go to bed. Gentle cleansing is a key part of a powerful anti-aging regimine.
