Ritual: Did you know that despite being one of our best selling products, our O/C Cleanser is still one that we also get the most usage questions about? Often when people are just using a non-foaming cleanser for the first time, they express that their skin doesn’t feel ‘clean’. Really, this ‘unclean’ feeling is just your skin’s natural barrier! Make friends with this important part of your skin! It prevents aging and inflammation by protecting you from the elements and is home to a plethora of beneficial bacteria. Without your skin’s protective barrier (which foaming cleansers remove), you are making your skin more vulnerable to damage and harmful bacteria. If you have been using stripping cleansers for most of your life, then this transition to feel comfortable ‘in your skin’ can take as much as 2 weeks.
