Savant Apothecary

Body Wash Milk Emulsion 500ml

$64

This is one of my masterpieces.  A cleanser for the body that is essentially a milk. Soft,washable, nourishing milk that washes away like a gel but without the dryness.  Very fine charcoal, that has been high temp steam cleaned, provides a fine polish that you barely feel until you have dried off and feel the smoothness and softness that isn’t screaming out for a moisturiser. 

It seemed ridiculous to me that we take so much care to not dry the skin on our faces by using heavy sufactants,  yet everyday we clean the driest skin on our bodies with them.......again and again.  Let me be the first to offer something better.  

How does this wash feel? It is very soft to touch in a velvety luxurious way and spreads exceptionally well. The softness in a way is an illusion as the fine charcoal polishes the surface and absorbs the oils and sweat compounds it’s so known for. Lastly this wash needs no encouragement to rinse off. It is still water soluble and rinses off the same as gel washes do. 

Its real promise is when you are out of the shower and you feel clean but your skin has a hydrated look. To me this is very imporatant.  Drying skin out in a shower everyday, year after year and decade after decade will effect how healthy it will be long term. 

The final part to tell you is the smell. This is made with Australian native essential oils but don’t think eucalyptus, think your subtle honey like wattles and fresh lemon balms. Mellow, warm sweet with that underlying freshness that our wonderfull native trees have. Lemon Myrtle, Kunzea, Fragonia, Lemon, Cedarwood.
