Augustinus Bader's The Cleansing Balm is a rich, nourishing cleanser that gently removes dirt, oil and makeup, without disrupting skin’s barrier. The balm works to nourish and protect the skin’s integrity, while encouraging its natural renewal cycle. The formula is designed to bind with oils and pollutants without causing harm or inflammation to the surface, which can accelerate signs of aging. It replenishes the skin’s natural oil balance and eliminates harmful microbes that stimulate the overproduction of sebum to maintain a healthy and clear complexion.
The formula’s amino-acid-based, Trigger Factor Complex repairs skin down to its cellular levels. The formula also includes FC8, vitamin E and squalane, along with a blend of conditioning butters, as well as irritant-and allergen-free oils including avocado, olive, coconut, sunflower and grapeseed.
