Then I Met You
Living Cleansing Balm
This 12x award-winning cleansing balm created by founder Charlotte Cho will quickly be your favorite step in your skincare routine!
Every scoop is a sensorial experience, thanks to its signature sorbet-like texture that is rich in nutrients. The Living Cleansing Balm glides onto skin and melts away oil-based impurities such as excess sebum, sunscreen and stubborn makeup without leaving behind an oily residue. The star ingredient in the luxurious formula is antioxidant and fatty acid-rich seaberry (sea buckthorn) oil, which softens and protects skin, and gives the balm its distinctive bright yellow color. Other skin-benefiting ingredients include anti-aging and brightening persimmon extract and nourishing olive oil and vitamin E.

For the first step of your double cleanse, use spatula to scoop a dime sized amount onto dry skin and gently massage in circular motions. Add a splash of warm water to emulsify and remove oil-based impurities. Rinse thoroughly before moving to step two, a water-based cleanser.
SEABERRY/SEA BUCKTHORN OIL - Rich in fatty acids such as stearic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, and omega-6. The bright orange coloring is due to high lycopene and carotenoid content. With time the coloring will fade but does not diminish the effectiveness of the cleanser.
OLIVE OIL - This nourishing antioxidant has anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits and protects your skin barrier as it is high in oleic acids and hydrophilic phenols. Studies show that the combination of olive oil and sea buckthorn restores compromised barriers.
PERSIMMON EXTRACT - Also known as dispyros kaki, this extract is a free radical scavenger that prevents premature aging and photo damage. It is known for its skin brightening effect by reducing hyperpigmentation, and can also regulate sebum production.
GRAPE SEED OIL - An antioxidant-rich emollient, this plant oil derived from grape seeds nourishes the skin while removing oil-based impurities gently. It has a high content of linoeleic acid, vitamin E and phenolic compounds, and an anti-inflammatory effect.
VITAMIN E - Vitamin E is an essential component of healthy skin, that prevents premature aging due to its powerful antioxidant properties.
