What’s in This Depuff Ice Facial Recipe

Full Fat Coconut Milk

Full fat coconut milk is rich in healthy saturated fatty acids, proteins, and vitamin C and E2, which are all amazing for the skin. It helps nourish, moisturize, and soothe dry and irritated skin while maintaining skin elasticity. This ingredient also helps dilute the essential oils in this recipe to make it safe for topical use.

Rose Clay

We love using Rose (or pink) Clay for our DIY skincare products. It is rich in natural minerals and has skin-soothing, anti-inflammatory, and balancing properties3 that make it great for the skin. Rose Clay is also one of the most gentle clays, meaning it is suitable even to those with dry and sensitive skin.

Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense Essential Oil is already a known ingredient in skincare products. It can improve the appearance of skin by treating dry skin, evening out skin tone, and reducing the appearance of fine lines, age spots, and scars4.

Orange Essential Oil

Orange Essential Oil has incredible antimicrobial properties that can treat skin conditions such as acne5. It is also rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, which helps defend skin from free radicals and other harmful external factors, resulting in a smooth, soft and plumped skin.
