Good Medicine ASHES: Reincarnation Cleansing Grains
Dust your palms lightly with Ashes, then add water to the hands. As the grains burst and bubble, rub your hands together several times, and, like magic the cleansing powder becomes a silky liquid. If the solution feels sticky, add a little water until it glides smoothly over your skin. Before rinsing away, let it rest on the skin for a moment to complete the cleansing action.
Potato, sodium bicarbonate, citric acid (vitamin C), 50+ trace mineral sea salts, organic sugar cane, organic milk and powdered pearls.
Essential oils and attars of juniper berry, pine needle, cedar wood, lime, vetiver, rose geranium and lily of the valley.
Good Medicine is a gift from the desert. The beauty lab is a collaboration of 5 women who have come together, inspired by the place we love most – the Southwest desert. Our lab, friendship, and workspace embodies passion, laughter, soul and at times courage – to remain true to our roots and not sway with the trends. We laugh, dance and are all creators.
We are a 3 generational family founded company, born out of the spa movement in the early 1960’s. We have been handcrafting our wild desert formulas for over 20 years and have been in the "clean beauty" industry for over 40. Each beautiful formula is made with love and bottled fresh, in small batches right in our own lab. This is unique and truly special because we can ensure all of our ingredients are pure, fresh and of the highest quality. Each life-giving formula is specifically designed to bring aliveness to the user. After all, where ever we see aliveness, we see beauty.
Living sustainably is vitally important to our health and the health of the planet. We harvest wild desert botanicals with respect, taking only what we need, and leaving no trace. We source locally first and gravitate towards like-minded suppliers who share our same high quality standards and love for the planet. To us, it's about choice.
