Activated Charcoal // This is a charcoal that has been treated with oxygen which creates more active regions to chemically bind with impurities (hence it is called “activated” charcoal!). When applied topically, activated charcoal binds to dirt, oil and toxins, detoxifying the skin. Great for facial cleansers and masks that target cleansing the pores to prevent break outs.

Tea Tree essential oil // Tea tree essential oil has been extensively studied and has shown to have antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, and immune stimulating properties. Studies have also shown that topical application of the oil can help alleviate acne by killing the bacteria that causes breakouts.

Neem oil // The neem tree has been used in India as a medicinal herb for thousands of years and is still used today in Ayuverdic practices. The oil is rich, fragrant, and useful for problematic skin because of its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Dead Sea Salt // Dead Sea salt is rich in minerals like magnesium, calcium and bromide which, unlike sodium chloride which is what regular sea salt is made of, actually helps hydrate the skin. These minerals, when absorbed in the skin, also stimulate detoxification, reduce inflammation, help improve acne and psoriasis, and improve skin barrier function.

Great for occasional usage

It took me a little while to figure out this soap and how my skin was able to handle it best. At first I used the soap each evening but quickly realised that it was a little too strong for my particular skin. It caused some dryness and break outs. I know that this is not unusual when you introduce a new product and simply changed my regime. I now use this Complexion Soap two to three times a week just to get a really good deep clean either after a sweaty workout or to help clear my skin of excess make-up. I would love for Apoterra to introduce a lighter, perhaps cream based cleanser to support my more sensitive skin.

Expectations exceeded!!!

I've been using (and loving) many Apoterra products for quite some time now and having great results, while continuing to use one non-Apoterra product - a cleansing mud. I thought I'd give this soap a try to find out if I'd notice a difference using 100% Apoterra products. I figured I'd probably like it, but wound up being absolutely wowed!!! Not only have my pores become so much clearer in an incredibly short amount of time, the texture of my skin is literally being transformed and has become almost as soft to the touch as my toddlers'. I am thrilled with this product!

Use daily

I use this to wash my face every evening. It is gentle on my sensitive skin and has helped in preventing breakouts. I have been using this on my face for 4 years and have never had another soap help my skin like this one has. It keeps my face balanced without being too oily or too dry.
