OIL CLEANSING METHOD - STARTER KIT
My OCM Kit makes a great gift. I include full sized components and some of my favorite cotton towels so you have everything needed to get started as soon as the order arrives.
Many centuries ago, long before people discovered how to make "soap" from oils and fats, people used just oils to cleanse. If you are familiar with "OIL PULLING" for the mouth, then you know how it works, but on the skin it works it even MORE effective!
Today beauty diva's everywhere are rediscovering this ancient secret to strong, resilient, youthful skin.

Preserving the skin's Biome
Scientist are learning that our skin has a biome, it is teeming with microbes - some bad some good. The goal of oil cleansing is to nourish the beneficial ones and remove the bad ones, while creating an environment favorable to the good ones .... READ MORE
Many centuries ago, long before people discovered how to make “soap”, the people of the Mediterranean used olive oil to cleanse their skin. Heated oils, or oils applied to dry skin, massaged in and allowed time to soak deep into pores and hair follicles where the nutrient rich oil dissolves sebum, along with dirt, grime, and debris so it can be wiped and rinsed away.
PRESERVATIVE FREE - Rosemary Oil Extract and Vitamin E are added to the oil blends to protect the polyunsaturated fatty acids from rancidity but no synthetic chemical preservatives are needed and are not included.
1, 2 oz bottle of OCM Deep Cleansing Oils (this is a wildcrafted creation, varies seasonally)
1, 15 ml dispensing bottle of my wildcrafted infused Alpenfleur Facial Oils.
1, 2 oz jar of OCM Perfection Scrub.
Instructions come with the kit and there is more information here on my website.
Today we are rediscovering the long lasting benefits associated with the regular practice of cleansing with just oils to achieve strong, resilient, soft, supple, radiant, youthful skin.
My OCM Deep Cleansing Oils and OCM Nourishing Facial Oils are rich in antioxidants and Omega 3,6,9 fatty acids which should not aggravate sensitive skin issues such as Rosacea, Seborrhea, itchy or allergy prone skin.
My cleansing oil blends are also VERY LOW on the comedogenicity scale (meaning they should not clog pores!) and offer a balanced ratio of Linoleic to Oleic Fatty Acids. Adults with normal to dry, combination skin with occasional breakouts or clogged pores (of course results vary) will LOVE this blend.
Individual kit components can be found here:
This kit is formulated for those with DRY - NORMAL skin, with occasional sentatives, outbreaks and clogged pores. Those with very oily, hormonally active, or acne prone skin I suggest adding a few drops of Castor Oil to your blend.
FOR BEST RESULTS - complete instructions
Overall, best results are achieved over time by avoiding soap and cleansers, cleansing twice a day with the Oil Cleansing Blend, exfoliating 4-7 times per week with the Perfection Scrub and applying the Alpenfleur Facial oils twice a day to WET SKINI
You may find your skin needs to undergo a period of normalization when OCM is adopted. Improvement in skin issues may take some time to achieve depending on your unique skin properties. The average amount of time require for your skin cells to do a complete turnover is 30 days, less when we are younger, and more as we age. With this in mind, it will take an adult at 1 -2 months to see REAL RESULTS! Good things come to those who wait.
STOP WASHING WITH ANY SOAP & REDUCE THE USE FOAMING CLEANSERS
I recommend reducing the use of SOAP on my facial skin altogether, and limiting foaming cleansers to 2 times per week. This helps preserve your skin's natural oils, allowing the skin to rebalance itself. Over cleansing with foaming cleansers and soap leaves your skin in a state of distress - working day and night to replace natural skin oils, leading often to acne, itchy outbreaks, clogged pores, and sensitivities resulting from an impaired skin barrier.
REDUCE OR ELIMINATE THE USE OF LOTIONS & MOISTURIZERS ON FACIAL SKIN BY SWITCHING TO FACIAL OILS INSTEAD!
I suggest minimizing the application of moisturizers to the also; "Skin creams can actually increase signs of aging due to the emulsifiers that must be used to create suspension of oil and water ingredients", according to David Pollock, a beauty-product developer turned consumer advocate and author of the book "Just Stop the Lies! Secrets the Beauty Industry Doesn't Want You to Know". Emulsifying waxes are binding agents which allow oil and water to mix in moisturizers and lotions. These leave a residue on the skin which often disrupts the skin's lipid barrier, allowing water to evaporate from the skin faster! You get a fast shot of moisture that eventually fades, so you use more lotion, and your skin gets drier, and the cycle just continues as imbalances create a cascade of problems.
A Note on Allergies and Sensitivies: It is always a good idea to test any skin product by applying a small amount and waiting to see if any reaction occurs. My blends should not irritate sensitive skin issues or clog pores. There are nut oils in the OCM Oil blends. As with any product discontinue use if your skin becomes irritated, itchy, inflamed, or reactive.
This product is formulated to provide best results for those with NORMAL - DRY skin which occasionally experiences sensitivities such as itchy outbreaks, clogged pores, comedones, and/or dry patches. Those with very oily or very dry, acne prone and/or hormonally active skin may not get the best results with this particular blend of oils and may benefit from a different combination of oils. Stay tuned for additions to the product line for these skin issues.
