three ways to use one product for more luminous skin
Komenuka is the word for rice bran, a super nutrient rich skin care food. Combined with rice bran flour and essential oils to boost the interaction between your skin and the interior organs that support luminous skin, our Komenuka Cleansing Grains are super versatile.
as a daily cleanser
Use with a splash of water to create a thin slurry and wash. Lightly exfoliating. You could easily use your favorite hydrosol or add a few drops of herbal castile soap. To boost efficiency, pre cleanse with oil or our Double Cleanser to remove make up and loosen gunk that clogs pores.
as a mask
In a small bowl or the palm of your hand, mix into a medium-thick paste and apply liberally to face and neck. Rest. Allow to dry. Rinse with plenty of warm water. Add a few drops of our BOOST oils for a literal 'boost'.
what's a gomage?
Gommage is a fancy word for a physical scrub that exfoliates. We use the Komenuka Cleansing Grains as a gommage in facial services to gently scrub off the dead cells that prevent the skin from drinking in nutrients and moisture.
To use the grains simply, mix a small amount in a bowl into a thick, barely damp ball of grains with water, hydrosol or our Double Cleanser. And before it softens too much, polish slowly and with intention along the jaw and hairline, the nose and nose creases. You can thin out the mix and do the forehead and neck and cheeks. Be extra careful around the eyes. Rinse, tone, moisturize.
