Viritida Ritual Cleansing Balm
What is it? Viritida is a euphoric balm-to-milk cleanser made from organic, cold-pressed Hemp Seed Oil. It completely melts away makeup and grime without compromising the skin’s natural acid mantle, leaving skin feeling thoroughly cleansed and moisturized.
Notes from the Curator: The scent is composed of verdant notes with a slightly floral edge from oils of Clary Sage, Rose Geranium, and Green Tea, while a wisp of Violet Leaf hovers suggestively. Viritida brings a sense of ritual and ceremony to your daily cleansing routine.
Let’s Get Nerdy: Cold-pressed, unrefined Hemp seed oil is high in omega acids and linoleic acid which hydrates the skin while modulating oil production, making it an excellent oil for both dry and acne-prone skin types. Clary Sage and Geranium essential oils both help tame the inflammation and redness associated with hormonal breakouts and irritated skin. Violet leaf is cooling and calming, while Green Tea leaf extract provides antioxidants.

The choices of ingredients in Arcana's exquisite products are informed by the biodiversity of the places that have shaped Erin and her partner Glen: Scotland and Southern Appalachia.
- How to Use
Scoop a small amount out of the jar using your dry, clean fingers. Massage well into dry skin, then run your fingers under warm water and massage again to emulsify the cleanser into milk. Remove all traces of cleanser and makeup with a damp cloth, or simply a few splashes of warm water.
