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 it to nourish the beneficial ones and remove the bad ones, and to create an environment favorable to the good ones - but not the bad 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 warm damp skin, were massaged and allowed 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 increase protect the fragile polyunsaturated fatty acids from rancidity by reducing the rate of oxidation.

- 1, 4.5 oz jar of OCM Exfoliating Powders to be mixed with the oils to create a gentle DYI paste scrub or mixed with other ingredients such as honey or yogurt!)
- 1 empty container plus a supply of small wooden spoons to mix and scoop your scrub.

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. The blends are also VERY LOW on the comedogenicity scale (meaning they should not clog pores!) and are intended for adults with normal to dry, combination skin with occasional breakouts or clogged pores (of course results vary). Everyone has different skin and no one product or approach to skincare is best for everyone. My oil blends have a balanced ratio of Linoleic to Oleic Fatty Acids and while Oleic fatty acid are vital for dry skin they can cause problems if you have very hormonally active skin and/or acne. (People with these issues will have better results with an OCM limited to oils very low in Oleic Acid and very high in Linoleic Acids).
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 may might not get good results and need a different blend of oils, or add a few drops of Castor Oil to your cleansing oils.

Overall, best results are achieved over time by avoiding soap and cleansers and exfoliating 4-7 times per week with the scrub you will create by mixing the OCM Deep Cleansing Oil with the OCM Exfoliating Powders. I like to use my scrub at night to remove my sunscreen and makeup.
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.
I recommend reducing or eliminating the use of SOAP and cleansers on your facial skin. They work great at stripping your skin of it's natural oils which is exactly what we are trying to avoid. This is because your skin is constantly attempting to rebalance itself, which can lead to itchy outbreaks, clogged pores, and sensitivities.
I also suggest minimizing the application of moisturizers to the face. "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.
