If you’ve been wanting to experience the power of cleansing oils, but you’re intimidated by the idea of a traditional cleansing oil (especially if you have oily skin), you’re in luck. shu uemura is one of the leading brands when it comes to cleansing oil, their most prominent being the ultime8∞ Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil.
You’d think that Asia’s no. 1 Cleansing Oil couldn’t get any better, but it just did — introducing the ultime8∞ Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil-In-Foam.
Non-comedogenic and suitable for all skin types, the fuss-free formula is designed to clean the skin with just one step. Perfect for those who prefer a more efficient skincare routine, the foamy texture speeds up the cleaning process and leaves skin feeling fresh. A concentrated emulsifier is present — bound to the exterior of the foam, it detaches and wraps up dirt from the skin, making it easy to wash off, all while retaining the potency of the original formula. It’s capable of removing impurities and both light makeup (including long-lasting lip and face makeup), while leaving the skin moisturised and smooth after use.
Infused with 8 precious oils, ultime8∞ provides nourishment to the skin while ridding it of any sebum and dirt that was built up throughout the day. Precious Tsubaki Oil is created from carefully handpicked seeds from Japanese islands like Toshima Island — only the first pressed oil is incorporated into the formula. The main component of Tsubaki Oil is is Triolein, which is also one of the main components in sebum, which prevents the evaporation of water from the skin. This key ingredient helps the skin to remain soft and supple, as its nourishing qualities ensure that the skin isn’t left dry or sticky after use.
98% of the ultime8∞ formula is derived from natural origins, tracing the source of each natural ingredient through a meticulous extraction process. Sustainability doesn’t stop at the formula alone — even the bottle is made with at least 75% post-consumer recycled plastic (PET), along with an Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified cardboard carton. The brand aims to use 100% PET for all cleansing oils by the end of 2020.
