Soap is formulated to clean our skin, but it also strip the natural oils from our skin. The natural fat/ oil our bodies produce is good for our skin — it provides a first defense barrier for the external factors (like bacteria's).
Instead, the oil cleansing method works based on the idea that "oil is able to dissolve oil". If we choose to simply dissolve our original oil (the sebum) with new and pure natural oil, we can clean our skin without disrupting its balance.
First and foremost, it is extremely important that you choose high quality, cold pressed oils that have not been obtained by chemical extraction methods. When possible, choose unrefined and organic.
