With three forms of deeply-calming and anti-inflammatory chamomile (including a CO2 extraction of German Chamomile, which is known for its high levels of matricin - a powerful agent of healing), a slow infusion of vibrant and resinous calendula, and grounded by an impeccably-sourced, antioxidant-rich olive oil, the deeply healing and purifying effects of RAPHA are felt far beyond the surface layer of the skin. It is a cellular-level communicator: speaking the language of peace and harmony to skin. RAPHA’s foundation infuses nutrient-rich oils with herbs complimented by antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and highly soothing essential oils, giving skin a pathway to health and framework for vitality.
This cushiony oil cleanser soothes and moisturizes as it removes makeup, dissolves impurities, and helps maintain the skin's natural oils for optimal cleansing without depleting the skin of its moisture. And the scent? Enticing. Calming. Grounding. Delightfully peaceful for the nerves as a nighttime cleanser, and spirited and uplifting in the morning. A beautiful, expansively nourishing self-care ritual to begin and end the day.

In the morning: massage a small amount of cleanser into damp skin. With a warm, damp cloth, steam face for a minimum of 10 seconds. Gently wipe away remaining oil.
In the evening: massage 4-6 pumps of cleanser into dry skin. Allow the nutrient-rich herbal oils to fully dissolve makeup and debris. Steam and remove as above. Follow with a gentle exfoliant when necessary.
May also be massaged into dry skin and removed with a dry cloth if cleansing with water is not the preferred method.
When Bee Simonds, the founder of H is for Love, entered the world of clean skincare, it wasn’t after years of working in the beauty industry or as a business woman who recognized a market opportunity. It was as a clean living expert. A wealth of knowledge about all things natural, holistic, and healthy, she wanted skincare made with the best ingredients in the world that valued integrity every step of the way. From harvesting practices to their environmental footprint as a company, the H team knows that every choice made has an effect. Therefore, it must be intentional. And sourcing is a foundational core value for H is for Love. All herbs are sourced directly from small, organic farms, and extracts are created in-house with so much love and intention. Essential oils are highly vetted to ensure authenticity and purity, and carrier oils are sourced after expansive research into their quality and integrity. Small batches of all H creations are brought to life by hand in their beautiful Spokane, Washington studio.
H is about returning to connection with nature and each other. It’s the little things, like writing personal notes to pack in each order, Bee making herself personally available through Instagram or email, and visiting difference cities to teach workshops. It’s about creating a web of love and care that stretches between us all…and out into the world.
