Organic Balance Facial Toner – 4 oz
With cooling action and an herbaceous scent, our Balance Toner works to control excessive oil production with nutrients that hydrate while nourishing the skin. Pure aloe vera, rosehip and wild-crafted witch hazel hydrosol protect and heal the skin through antioxidants and the promotion of cell turnover while Melissa (aka Lemon Balm) hydrosol cools the skin for a refreshing effect and the astringent properties help balance oily skin.
Why is toning so important? The primary function of a toner is to bring the skin back into ph balance. The ph of our skin can be thrown off easily through foaming agents in skin cleansers, but almost always will be affected by the tap water we use to cleanse with. Without toning, it takes approximately thirty minutes for our skin to regain it’s ph balance on it’s own without assistance. That’s thirty minutes of unnecessary stress that we can prevent! When the skin is ph balanced it is functioning more optimally enabling it to utilize more efficiently those nutrient rich facial oil serums, tonics and moisturizers that we apply afterwards, making your efforts and hard earned dollars worth so much more.
