Yasuni Face Balm


Description +


Featherlight balm for sensitive skin

This lightest-in-the world vegan face balm is an ideal choice for acne-prone, blackhead-prone, hyperpigmentation-prone, and oily skin types, especially if the skin is also sensitive to essential oils. An enzymatic, fruity, lean balm, it delivers protection and emolliency in sufficient amounts for combination to oily skin types, and it is a superior problem solver for blackhead-prone skin: Yasuni can be used all over the face or only on the blackhead-prone zones to reduce oil production and to decrease blackheads substantially over time. Dry skin types can also benefit from the resurfacing and revitalizing properties of this balm by layering it over a rich moisturizer or an oil, or even blending Yasuni with a face oil for dry skin. Appropriate for very sensitive skin, it is formulated without essential oils. The light scent of this balm comes from the green coffee beans and from cranberry and raspberry oils.

Skincare Benefits:

  • This balm can become a replacement for a moisturizer, especially for normal and combination skin types.

  • The balanced noncomedogenic formula includes hydrating marula oil and cupuacu butter, firming tucuma butter, penetrating bacuri butter, spot lightening acai oil, and revitalizing raspberry and cranberry oils.

  • Contains a few fruit oils that act like light natural enzymatic exfoliators, especially acai fruit oil. For this reason, Yasuni can be used as an overnight exfoliant in place of a retinol product, but without the side effects of irritation or redness. It also keeps oil production in check and reduces blackheads.

  • Can be used as a spot treatment for acne breakouts: the betacarotene in buriti oil and the enzymes in acai, cranberry, and raspberry oil work to dry up breakouts quickly.

Skin Type Recommendations: For all skin types, including blackhead-prone, congestion-prone, allergy-prone, and sensitive.

Color and Texture:​ A smooth, soft balm that melts on contact with the skin. The color is a non-staining light brown with hints of olive green.

Apply day and night all over the face or just on the more oily, acne-prone, and blackhead-prone areas. Your balm may melt in transit, so open the jar carefully upon arrival. If it melts partially or completely, place it in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes (just until it solidifies; don't leave it there for too long because then it tends to crack), then store at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Texture changes in 100% natural vegan products are natural under fluctuating temperatures, and do not in any way affect the product's performance or shelf life.
