Charcoal Face Wash combines three well-known ingredients in Japanese skincare - organic Camellia oil, activated charcoal, and Konjac root. This unique formula suspends activated coconut charcoal and kaolin clay in a cream-gel base with absolutely no harsh surfactants or synthetics. Aster + Bay have also added bentonite clay, with its unique detoxifying powers, and calamine powder, to help soothe irritation. For all skin types.
Directions: Apply a few pumps of cleanser to damp skin and massage in circular motions. Rinse with warm water. Can be followed by our Cleansing Oil as part of the double cleansing method, or simply finish with Rosewater Mist and facial serum.
Aster + Bay was founded by Erin Hammond in 2012 as an outlet to create self-care products while she studied western herbalism. Prior to that, Erin received her graduate degree in Architectural Conservation from the University of Edinburgh. It was during her study of architectural history in Scotland that she developed a love for traditional craft and the preservation of craft methods. Turning to a slightly different medium once back in the States, she began to investigate and study botany, plant folklore and herbal alchemy. Created in Erin’s Atlanta studio, we love that every aspect of the collection is made in house from formulating to designing products. Beauty with background. Sign us up.
