BONFIRE BUFFER | Charcoal face scrub with burnishing liquorice root
organic ingredients | cruelty-free | fragrance-free | made in the UK
This onyx clarifying facial scrub is the true epitome of elemental balance. From the earth we take liquorice root, an anti-inflammatory herb heralded as a skincare saviour for more than 4,000 years in traditional Chinese medicine. From the liquorice root we siphon glycyrrhizin acid + glabridin molecules, two enzymes which collide to form a nectarous sugar syrup that aids against ailments including hyperpigmentation, redness + irritation. Rich in amino acids + antioxidants, liquorice root is also a celebrated guardian of moisture, elastin + collagen, tightening + toning whilst fending against the free radicals.
From fire we take two things: exfoliating micro pumice + activated charcoal. Dirt, oil, chemicals, toxins + heavy metals are all pulled to the carbon fibres of natural charcoal, washed away with water, extracting pollutants from congested pores to clarify the complexion. When lava boasts a high content of water, gas is expelled from the volcano, discharging a bubbling froth which cools + hardens in contact with air to form a porous rock also known as pumice. This pumice polishes + buffs the skin without disturbing its delicate surface, a gentle abrasion which is as light as a bonfire’s ember and leaves behind nothing but fresh-faced, elastic lustre.
Apply a generous amount to clean, wet skin, focusing on the face + jawline but avoiding the delicate eye area as you go. Gently massage with the fingertips, in small slow circles, for one minute before rinsing away thoroughly with warm water. Don’t forget to apply your serums + face creams of choice after.
Caution: For external use only. Designed to be used on the face. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of the reach of children. Do not store in direct sunlight.

As a natural, noncomedogenic carrier oil, sunflower oil promises not to block pores, retaining moisture + defending against bacteria without a trace.
persea gratissima (avocado oil) - Another of nature’s most soothing pressed seed oils, avocado oil brings vitamin E, potassium + lecithin in abundance - all agents of anti-inflammation + defenders of a calm, balanced complexion.
