- Extremely versatile – multi-tasking ‘three in one’ daily deep cleanser, make up remover, and nourishing and vitalising mask.

1. Take a chickpea size of the Vata Deep Cleanser and warm between your fingertips.
2. Massage all over your face and neck in circular upward and outward motions allowing the cleanser to melt deeply into your skin dislodging all makeup and debris.
3. To remove, drench a soft face cloth in warm water, ideally infused with Vata Ayuressence. Wring it out and compress over face and neck to steam skin and open pores before gently wiping off. Repeat if needed when wearing heavy makeup.
* As a deeply hydrating and revitalising weekly mask treatment smooth it liberally over cleansed skin and rest for 10-20 minutes.
› TIPS: Massage the Vata Deep Cleanser onto your skin before you step into the shower. The warm water and steam will help infuse the oils into your skin for a deeper cleanse with a softening effect. This is the perfect cleanser to switch to when the weather gets cold or your skin is starting to feel extra dry and dehydrated.

› Key Ingredients
- Argiletz Yellow Clay – a rejuvenating and revitalising clay this superfine Illite Yellow clay comes from the French region of Argiletz. Unrefined, non-radiated and full of living energy this active clay gently draws out toxins while oxygenating and brightening the skin. Essential earth minerals impart increased health, cellular repair and epidermal restoration.
- Macadamia Oil – rich in phytochemical compounds such as tocopherols, squalene and vitamins A and E, which protect against free radical damage, Macadamia is highly nutritious for the skin. It contains the perfect balance of essential fatty acids as found in skin, particularly Omega 7 Palmitoleic Acid and anti-inflammatory Omega 9 Oleic acid which decrease as we age. It penetrates deeply to moisturise, improve skin’s barrier function and promote scar healing and cellular regeneration, decreasing the effects of fine lines and wrinkles and preventing premature ageing of skin.
- Cardamom – Known as the ‘queen of spices’ cardamom is warming, sweet and pungent and is a natural skin cleanser promoting detoxification and circulation to give the skin a natural glow. It is anti-bacterial, stimulates digestion and is an excellent anti-oxidant. It alleviates fatigue and helps the mind from over thinking to bring about a state of clarity.
- Vanilla – Vanilla is anti-inflammatory and high in anti-oxidants and B vitamins including niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and B6, all important for skin nutrition. It is a natural mood enhancer and its warming aroma has a calming and sedative effect on the mind.

Hands down the best cleanser I have ever used. A little goes a long way, it feels like a luxurious ritual rather than a chore. Removes all traces of makeup and leaves skin dewy and supple. I usually have dry areas after cleansing but this left my skin feeling very soft, hydrated but not oily at all. Highly recommend! Now I want to try all of the other products in the range.
