Recipe for an Organic Cleansing Cream
Make Yourself: Recipe for an Organic Cleansing CreamA few years ago, my fascination for all things green began with Dr Hauschka Cleansing Cream. This pretty basic exfoliating cleanser is ridiculously expensive, but it smell gorgeously, and the results were really good.
After one tiny tube (the cream is sold in small tubes lasting approximately 2 weeks) my skin looked smooth and I think the post-acne marks slightly faded. The cream came with a precise instruction how to apply which was detailed to the point it explained how you were supposed to breathe in the process.
While this all looks funny to me at the moment (there’s no need to perform breathing excersises while you exfoliate your face with almond meal puree), the cream still has an aura of luxury that many organic beauty products unfortunately emit.
Organic doesn’t need to be a luxury if we want more people to use green products!
Back to the cleanser. A few days ago I received a lovely message from a friend, She wanted to share her recipe for a homemade version of Dr Hauschka Cleansing Cream.
I tried it - and it came out even better than the original! Perhaps due to the lack of alcohol which is notoriously overwhelming in Dr H products.
