TRIPLE TEXTURE. DOUBLE CLEANSE. SINGLE STEP.
We are doubling down on clean because we believe that cleansing the skin properly is arguably the most important part of all skincare. It’s why we’ve taken years to perfect our most requested launch with our Cleansing Oil Balm a triple texture cleanser and makeup remover that serves as a double cleanse to dissolve makeup and debris as it nourishes the complexion to restore softness.
DOUBLE DOWN ON YOUR MOST IMPORTANT SKINCARE STEP
WHY IS A DOUBLE CLEANSE NEEDED?
In today’s harsh modern environment, a single cleanse is no longer enough. Our innovative 3-in-1 cleanser is the single step needed to get skin’s most important step done properly.
The first step in any skincare expert's routine is a Double Cleanse. This technique involves an oil-based cleanser, followed by a water-based cleanser to effectively prepare the skin for next steps. Seeking a natural alternative to surfactants that deplete the skin barrier and disrupt the microbiome, we’ve infused olive leaf water into a rich olive oil balm for a comforting double cleanse for a luxurious facial-level clean in single wash.
CLEANSE PHASE ONE: OLIVE OIL
Our Sicilian olive oil is a magnet for acne-causing oils and debris deep within the pores. By massaging the balm into its oil phase, olive oil surfactants break down and attach to impurities like makeup, sunscreen, and dirt to draw them out of the skin without stripping skin of natural oils. Skin is left meticulously clean while calming and moisturizing Olive Squalane, fatty acids, and vegetable peptides deeply condition the skin so skin feels soft and never stripped or uncomfortably tight.
CLEANSE PHASE TWO: OLIVE LEAF WATER
Packed with potent antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory plant actives, our antioxidant-rich Olive Leaf Water provides a second level of cleansing by rinsing away all water-soluble particles, such as unseen dirt, dead skin cells, and pollution. Activating the milky lather rinses away the residue that is left out the outer level of the skin. All while deeply restoring skin hydration long after rinsing.
Adjusts pH to preserve skin’s natural acid mantle while balancing both moisture and antioxidant levels to leave the skin opimal for treatment and sunscreen or makeup application.

Wet hands and work water into circular motions to experience the triple texture change into the final light milky lather.
Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.
Note: For heavy makeup wearers, you may want to spend up to two minutes massaging away makeup layers or repeat your cleanse 2x until all the balm has been wiped away.
WHAT COMES NEXT?

WATCH TRIPLE TEXTURE TECHNOLOGY IN ACTION
The rich balm melts into a luxe oil on contact with skin and then transforms into a light milky lather once activated by water. The transformation into a lighter texture enables the formula to rinse clean without leaving a trace of residue or a tight, uncomfortable feeling.
SHOULD I USE A CLEANSING OIL BALM IF I HAVE OILY OR ACNE-PRONE SKIN?
ABSOLUTELY! Water and oil are the fundamental elements for balanced skin. If your skin doesn’t have enough water it feels dehydrated, when it doesn’t have enough oil, it feels dry and lacks moisture. When skin lacks oil, it begins to overproduce, which leads to over cleansing that then causes skin to be stripped of its natural oils. It’s a vicious cycle... To ensure skin gets complete, balanced nutrition, we created an interlocking cleansing system that uses both oil and water to provide a comprehensive approach to detox skin and remove impurities all while improving hydration and moisture. Our organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Olive Lead Water work synergistically to not only cleanse the skin, but give skin both the oil and water based nutrients it needs.
SHOULD I USE A CLEANSING OIL BALM EVERY DAY?
Gentle enough for eyes, lips and sensitive skin types, the Triple Texture Technology is the perfect morning and nighttime cleanser as it will not strip skin’s natural oils or leave you dry or greasy. It protects the skin’s natural moisture barrier and balances skin’s pH while improving skin texture over time. Once you’ve prepared the skin, you’re ready to treat, moisturize, and replenish your skin.
HOW TO LAYER YOUR FURTUNA SKIN PRODUCTS
DO I NEED A CLEANSING OIL BALM EVEN IF I DON’T WEAR MAKEUP?
For optimal skin health, the answer is yes. Even if you only wear skincare products or SPF, our modern environment packs on layers of unseen grime like nasty pollution, dirt, and dead skin build up that can clog pores. Cleansing Oil Balm works as a multitasking cleanser to remove unseen impurities as it calms, nourishes and replenishes the moisture barrier to leave skin soft, supple and free of residue.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Cielo Puro, which translates to Pure Sky, was inspired by the crystal-clear skies and fresh, clean air of a perfect spring day in the unspoiled Sicilian countryside. Like the island’s pure skies with nary a cloud in sight, our heavenly cleansing balm leaves skin pristine, with no cloudy residue obscuring its glowing beauty.
KEY INGREDIENTS THAT DRIVE PERFORMANCE
ORGANIC OLIVE OIL
Packed with phenolic antioxidants, Vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids, our nourishing olive oil protects against a range of free radical effects, rejuvenates fatigued skin and moisturizes skin without clogging pores. Harvested from mighty olive trees on our Sicilian La Furtuna Estate, our exclusive extra virgin, single origin olive oil has won awards around the world and earned the USDA organic qualification and Bioagricert certification so you know it’s the highest quality you can find.
ORGANIC OLIVE LEAF WATER
Rich in phenols and super antioxidants like oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol, our exclusive olive leaf water protects, soothes and replenishes skin with moisture. We make our own plant water by pruning the leaves of the olive trees on La Furtuna Estate and submerging them in hydro-glycerin for a quick extraction of phenolic content via our Southbath™ Method. We use this olive leaf infusion in place of plain water in our formulas because it amplifies the nutrients available for skin.
Similar to the squalene produced by the body’s oil glands, the olive plant version – called squalane with an “a” – adds to skin’s fast-dwindling supply of these lipids to help repair the moisture barrier. A nutrient-rich emollient oil, olive squalane helps boost hydration, seal moisture and alleviate dryness to leave the complexion glowing and rejuvenated with no greasy finish. It’s also a protective antioxidant against environmental stress.
FERMENTED SICILIAN MANNA
Ancient roots, innovative results. Rich in amino acids, polysaccharides, antioxidants and essential nutrients, Manna brings its next level nourishing and hydrating benefits to cleansing. Its efficacy as a natural moisturizer gives our balm cleanser the unique ability to leave skin dewy-soft and smooth, never stripped.
Gently harvested during the summer months in Sicily’s Madonie Mountain Range, the precious sap of the ancient European Ash Tree is drawn from the bark by hand, carrying on a centuries-old tradition. Manna then undergoes a fermentation process, a buzzy beauty trend destined to become the future of skincare because it delivers an exceptionally potent form of ingredients. Fermentation releases enzymes that break down molecules for easier skin absorption while intensifying the concentration of nutrients and beneficial bacteria for a better skin microbiome.
WILD-HARVESTED QUILLAJA AND SOAPWORT SAPONINS
Plant purifying power. Sustainably grown, natural origin saponins from Quillaja Saponaria (aka Soapbark) and the Saponaria Officinalis (aka Soapwort) are plant-based surfactants with exceptional cleansing, foaming and conditioning abilities. Saponins are the soaps of nature, a kinder, gentler alternative to harsh synthetics for cleansing that’s good for skin and earth.
