This Cleansing Face Balm combines finely ground apricot stones, blackcurrant seed, blue tansy, oat and sea buckthorn oils with candelilla wax.
Finely ground apricot stones are rich in antioxidant Vitamin E and a by-product of the apricot oil industry. Repurposing the apricot stones helps reduce waste and encourages a circular economy.
Sea buckthorn is high in Vitamin C and E and Omega 7 fatty acids that helps skin retain its elasticity.
The oat oil is rich in Vitamin E, Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and antioxidants helping to soothe maturing, sensitive and damaged skin. It also protects against pollutants and supports skin elasticity.
Candelilla wax can help reduce the appearance of age spots and helps the cleansing balm spread easily. It absorbs quickly providing rich nourishment to your skin.
The scrub comes in a glass jar with an aluminium lid and packaged in a cardboard box. All the packaging is recyclable.
Size: 50 ml
Use as the first cleanse because it breaks down make-up, SPF, sweat and sebum on the surface of the skin. Warm a small amount between your fingers and once it’s softened, massage onto your face in an upward circular motion.
Remove with a warm, damp cloth and follow with a water-based cleanse (like soap) to remove any impurities in the pores.
Use daily as part of your evening facial care routine.

100% of the ingredients are from natural origin.
The founders of Upcircle, William and Anna Brightman, noticed that a lot of coffee grounds were going to waste every day, and decided to give them a new lease of life. They began collecting coffee grounds from one coffee shop and now collect from hundreds across London.
Expanding their range, Upcircle uses other ingredients that would normally go to waste, such as aromatic chai spices, apricot stones and olive pips.
They create quality skincare products that are 100% natural and care about creating a positive environmental impact.
As a result, they’ve created skincare products that give great results and do the planet some good too. Upcircle are the pioneers of circular / by-product beauty and, like us, they want to leave the world better than we found it.
