How to indulge
Morning and night, apply Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser on a wet face and neck, and gently massage into skin. Never be aggressive! Rinse with lukewarm water.

An antioxidant cleanser that doesn’t mess up your skin barrier, lifting everything your skin doesn’t want while leaving what it needs—healthy pH, hydration, antioxidants and no irritation. Matcha and hemp seeds are here to boost the skin’s intake of antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Your skin and this cleanser might be a matcha made in heaven!

A group of mild and gentle cleaning agents. These surfactants are less likely to compromise your skin barrier whereas harsh surfactants (like SLS) can strip away everything including your natural lipids. And these, you don’t want to surrender.
Cleansers should cleanse. But what many people neglect is choosing a cleanser that also protects the skin barrier. Harsh cleansers that are alkaline, strip away everything and leave your skin tight do more harm than good. It weakens the skin barrier—which is the best moisturizer you’re naturally born with. In other words, your skin becomes drier, more sensitive and reactive. So choosing a cleanser that’s close to the skin’s natural pH and doesn’t mess up your skin barrier is essential for maintaining the skin’s health. And if you’re feeling lazy in the morning? Just skip cleansing. Respect mother nature by eating real foods and listening to what your skin craves.
No more Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser? It’s recycling time, fam! We know how confusing recycling can be, so here’s a basic guide:
Step 1: #SkincareCommitment: Use it up and rinse it out. If the cleanser doesn’t work for you, give it to a friend or family member. That way there’s no waste and it can go to a better home!

If not, look into organizations, like TerraCycle, to help you properly recycle your beauty products. It’s free (!) and all you have to do is gather your empty products together, print a recycling label and ship it out. That’s it! They’ll take care of the rest for you.
