Yasuni Face Balm from Earthwise Beauty was specially crafted with fruit oils that have particularly high and wide-ranging phytonutrient levels and enzymatic action to act like retinol on the skin, exfoliating and resurfacing it, but with none of the irritation, redness, or peeling often caused by actual retinol products. It is also an ideal balm for reducing the appearance of acne, blackheads, and oil production.

The star of this balm is its enzymatic mild exfoliation from fruit oils while also leaving the skin feeling nourished and supple. The açai oil exfoliates and resurfaces the skin similarly to retinol but doesn't over-exfoliate or cause redness or intense peeling. Yasuni also features buriti oil, which is exceptionally high in beta carotenes, helping sebum oil production so oily skin types can look and feel less shiny and reduce the appearance of blackheads and breakouts.

How to use

Apply day and night all over the face or just on the more oily, acne-prone, and blackhead-prone areas. Yasuni may be blended with our Farizad's Veil Sun Reflector to add sun protection and to mattify the skin. Yasuni may also be blended with a few drops of a facial oil of choice for a looser, juicier balm.

Key Ingredient

Açai oil

Though it exfoliates and resurfaces the skin similarly to a retinol product, açai oil will never overexfoliate or cause redness or intense peeling in the way a true retinol can. The deep green, whole-fruit açai fruit oil we've sourced is also the acne sufferer's dream come true: this very light, extract-like oil heals and dries up acne due to its enzymes and high vitamin C content, and unlike most other effective acne ingredients, it is nonirritating.
