If that wasn’t enough, you can just imagine how proud and excited we were when we got the news that we had won our second Healing Lifestyles – Earth Day Beauty Award! That’s right, folks! Huna’s Revitalize Cleansing Creme + Make-up Remover with organic mango butter, unrefined ucuuba + jojoba is the winner of the 2019 Earth Day Beauty awards in the category of ‘Best Cleanser’! *Cue happy dance* This creamy enzymatic cleanser moisturizes and balances, while gently exfoliating and brightening skin. It removes all traces of cosmetics- even eye makeup, sunscreen, and impurities. Your skin is left feeling and looking incredibly clean, revitalized, hydrated, soft, smooth, and fresh. Cleanse on natural beauties!
Unrefined ucuuba butter comes from the ucuuba tree, native to Central + South America. Ucuuba is rich in essential fatty acids and replenishes moisture, firmness + tone to skin, while boasting ultra-healing and anti-bacterial qualities. Ucuuba butter is non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog pores. We are so in love with Ucuuba- it has a unique natural earthy scent that we love. It contributes to the characteristic rich and intoxicating aroma-benefits making this organic creamy cleanser a calming aromatic ritual.
Organic mango butter provides rich, creamy moisture, vitamins A + C, and balances skin without feeling greasy or clogging pores. Mango butter is uber-rich in antioxidants and offers emollient qualities which soften skin. Pineapple and papaya extracts contains bromelain and papain enzymes (respectively) which gently exfoliate, brighten and rejuvenate skin. Organic jojoba oil is great for balancing skin, as it mimics skin’s natural sebum and is very rich in vitamin E. Jojoba oil deeply cleanses pores and breaks down pore-clogging impurities, while improving skin elasticity, softening, and moisturizing.
