Lightwave Enzyme Cleansing Balm
What is it? Lightwave is a true cleansing workhorse with the grime-removing power of cleansing oil, a gentle biodegradable emulsifier, and the sumptuous feel of a balm!
Notes from the Curator: Lightwave is a truly sensorial cleanse, with a warm spicy-floral scent without any essential oils or fragrance for those who are sensitive. A great way for those who can’t tolerate AHA’s in leave-in products to experience gentle exfoliation.
Let’s Get Nerdy: Botanical Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) and Papaya fruit enzymes to gently exfoliate dead skin cells. Organic Turmeric extract provides skin-brightening antioxdants. Skin is left soft and radiant without any stripping or disruption to its natural microbiome.

Massage a thin layer of balm over dry skin with dry fingers. Once applied, wet hands with warm water and emulsify balm into a milk. Rinse clean with warm water or a damp washcloth. Lightwave can also be used as a flash mask. Simply leave on the face for 5-10 minutes before emulsifying and removing.
