The beauty of Natural Essence™ 

Specially formulated for oily and combination skins, the Sh’Zen with Natural Essence™ range blends five restorative essential oils with two EFA-rich plant oils. 


Extracted from the rind of the bergamot fruit, a cross between an orange and a grapefruit, this oil has a refreshing citrus aroma that lifts the spirits. It helps regulate sebum output, plus it has antiseptic and antibacterial properties to help fight the bacteria that cause spots to spread. 


Camphor oil, extracted from the wood of the tree, has a soothing, medicinal aroma that brings clarity to the mind. It’s a strong decongestant, ideal for clearing out blocked pores, plus its anti-inflammatory properties make it useful in treating the inflammation associated with acne. 


Cypress has a comforting aroma that helps soothe anger. Extracted from the needles of the tree, it functions as a diuretic and drains excess fluids, so helping clear away congestion. It’s also an astringent and works to stabilise sebaceous secretions, plus strengthen connective tissue. 


The sharp, fresh fragrance of grapefruit essential oil lifts the spirits and imparts a renewed zest for life. Its antiseptic and disinfectant qualities help treat bacterial infection and clear congested pores. It also stimulates circulation and lymphatic drainage to help rid the body of toxins and tone the skin. 


Lavender’s light, fresh aroma calms the nervous system. It is one of the most versatile essential oils and has countless therapeutic properties. As an antiseptic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory, it helps heal damaged skin and prevent scarring. It also stimulates the lymph system, tones and revitalises skin and helps prevent blocked pores. 


Aloe Ferox oil is packed with the vitamins, enzymes, proteins and minerals that support all skin functions. It maintains moisture levels, stimulates circulation, tightens and rejuvenates tissue, treats infected pores, and restores a natural radiance. JOJOBA A liquid wax produced in the seed of the jojoba plant, this plant oil is rich in Vitamin E and other antioxidants, and absorbs well to nourish skin without leaving it feeling oily. It also has an excellent antiinflammatory action on congested, inflamed skin





Cleansing twice a day is the first step to beautiful, healthy skin. In the morning, it clears away stale skin acids and oil from the night before, eliminating impurities and allowing skin to breathe. In the evening, it removes pollution, make-up and excess oils and leaves skin refreshed and bacteria free.

How to cleanse with Sh’Zen with Natural Essence™ 

Purifying Cleansing Wash is the perfect natural foaming gel wash for all oily and combination skin types. It contains active plant oils to treat shine, repair tissue and act as an astringent on dilated pores. 

1. Foam it up with wet fingertips. 

2. Massage it all over the face and neck using upward circular movements. 

3. Rinse off thoroughly with a facecloth or facial sponges soaked in warm water. 

4. Follow with a spritz of Balancing Toner


Purifying Cleansing Wash 

This lightly foaming, milky cleanser has a delightfully fresh scent and works to thoroughly cleanse skin without stripping it of essential moisture. Use daily, both morning and evening.

How it works 

The Natural Essence™ blend of essential oils has a natural antibacterial action and helps to control the spread of spot-causing bacteria, decongest pores and purify skin deep down. l Bergamot and Cypress regulate sebum output to prevent excess oil production, treat shine and re-balance skin. l Sweet Almond oil nourishes and restores skin. l Active plant oils repair skin and act as an astringent on dilated pores. For added benefits l Always rinse off the Purifying Cleansing Wash thoroughly and follow with a spritz of Balancing Toner to restore comfort to skin. l Skin that feels taut or dry can be beautifully restored with a few drops of Skin Life Oil.


Toning, or spritzing, is always the second step in the cleansing process and must never be omitted from your twice-daily routine. It restores the skin’s protective acid mantle and removes the last cleansing residue to leave skin in the best condition to receive the benefits of further beauty treatments.

How to tone The Sh’Zen with Natural Essence™ 

Balancing Toner removes the last residue of the Purifying Cleansing Wash, leaving skin fresh and revitalised. It’s the ideal choice for oily skin types as it contains plant actives with natural antiseptic and astringent qualities that work to control excess shine.

Three specialised treatments offer concentrated benefits to optimise your skincare regimen. 

Exfoliate: An essential part of any good beauty routine, an exfoliator frees skin of dull surface debris to reveal a layer of fresh new cells and restore radiance to the complexion. 

Deep clean: A mask absorbs excess oil and impurities, rebalances skin and softens its texture. It’s the gentlest and most natural way to treat imperfections and clear breakouts. 

Massage: A facial massage boosts circulation, releases tension, restores suppleness and softens signs of ageing. It is particularly effective when using a facial oil, which penetrates deep into skin to stimulate its natural renewal processes.
