SS is a viscous and intense cleaning balm for the face formulated with highly-concentrated, very-unrefined Ayurvedic plant surfactants unsupported by any modern cleaning technology. SS contains no purified or synthetic surfactants, sulphates, oils, esters or micellar technologies. It is a pH-balanced suspension of the amino acid, Lysine, in saponins from the Ayurvedic plants shikakai and sapindus mukorossi.

Ayurvedic saponin are unrefined and messy. They borrow their colour and smell from a place far away from today's madding crowd of refinement. But their near-perfect equilibrium between deep cleaning and respecting skin integrity is evidence that — somehow, somewhere — they connected to humankind.

With continued use, SS targets all forms of build-up, blemishes, congestion and impurities. It is suitable for all skin types. After the first use, SS leaves the skin looking nearly pore-free and its surface exceptionally cleaned — as if it's radiating from within.

DIRECTIONS:

Use once every other day in the AM or the PM. SS can be used more frequently if desired. Wet face thoroughly. Massage SS between your palms for a few seconds to form a paste-like lather. Apply to the entire face and massage gently, avoiding the eyes. Rinse thoroughly, keeping your eyes closed. Dry with a towel.


NOTES:

1. While SS is pH-balanced, plant saponins (and plants in general) can mildly irritate the eyes. While this sensitivity can be avoided by keeping your eyes closed during cleaning, if you develop any mild sensitivity around the eyes, it will disappear within a few minutes.

2. Within the first few minutes after using SS, you may feel that your skin feels mildly dry. This temporary feeling is a direct result of SS having removed skin oils gently to encourage recycling of these oils. This feeling is very short-lived and, within a few minutes, you'll notice your skin returns to normal.

3. For committed users of SS, the product can be applied for a deeper cleaning treatment as follows: Clean the skin with water and dry with a towel. Wet the palms of your hand. Massage a generous amount of SS into your palms until a mild lather forms like a paste. Apply to dry skin, avoiding the eye areas entirely. Leave on for 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with your eyes closed. Dry with a towel

Firm

This is a magical facewash: within minutes, I could feel my face firming up. Not tight, like after a soap cleanser, but firm. Pores are visibly reduced in size after each wash, and the skin feels smoother to the touch, almost like a wax candle. It does clean deep in the pores, like a scrub, so it might not be the best daily cleanser, but I have decided to use it every second day, as suggested on the packaging.

Only downside: I hate the smell, which makes it easy to avoid wanting to use every day.

It's not upto my expectation

I just fell for the word Sanskrit. I thought it could be chemical free but it contains many chemicals. Also its not gentle to the face.
