I was recently invited to a preview of Odacité Skincare Green Ceremony Cleanser by The Detox Market at The Haute Spot’s Pop-Up at Bayview Village Shopping Centre. Odacité makes skincare products using pure organic ingredients. All products are blended fresh and delivered immediately to you, which means that they don’t have to add preservatives or harmful chemicals to their products.
In fact, Odacité Green Ceremony Cleanser is so pure, you can eat it. The two key ingredients are Matcha and Spirulina. Other ingredients include food-grade baking soda, Aloe Vera powder, honey powder and Citric Acid.
As Laura Townsend of The Detox Market explained, there are several principles that are behind the development of Odacité Green Ceremony Cleanser. These principles are derived from the Japanese Tea Ceremony and include Purity (of ingredients), Respect (for the delicate skin barrier), Harmony (Aloe Vera reduces redness while Matcha and Spirulina reverse free radical damage) and Tranquility (transform powder to foam and enjoy a tranquil moment while massaging cleanser into skin).
Laura demonstrated how to use the cleanser. Since it’s in a powder form, you need to add a few drops of water. The Green Ceremony Cleanser comes with a small plastic scoop. Just fill the scoop with the powdered cleanser, then pour the contents of the scoop on the back of your hand. Add a few drops of water to your hand and mix it in with the cleanser. You’ll see the product turn into a foaming mixture. Apply the cleanser to your face and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. Laura advised me that she sometimes leaves the cleanser on for 30 minutes. People with oily skin can use the cleanser every other day while people with normal, dry or mature skin should restrict use to three times a week.
Since Odacité Green Ceremony Cleanser is made from Matcha, the organizers emphasized this fact with a lovely afternoon tea with fresh flowers, finger sandwiches, scones and…you guessed it: Matcha Tea. What a lovely touch!
I have tried the Green Ceremony Cleanser several times and love how clean my face feels afterwards. I usually leave the cleanser on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. It’s very easy to remove with the muslin cloth that comes with each Green Ceremony Cleanser. I’ve noticed that the cleanser has helped reduce my rosacea.
Odacité Green Ceremony Cleanser comes in a 150 ml bottle and retails for $55. You can purchase Odacité products at The Detox Market at 420 King Street West (at Spadina Avenue) and 96 Scollard Street in Yorkville.
As my skin gets older….ugh…I am finding that I have to find a new skincare routine. I have not heard of this and it looks great for my type of skin. I may be investing in this. Thank you for the review.
I hadn’t heard of Odacité Skincare before reading your post. I love that they make their skincare products without preservatives and with natural ingredients. Sounds like a brand for me! The Green Ceremony Cleanser sounds like a product worth checking out as well.
Sounds like a fun event! I need to revamp my skincare soon 😏
How interesting. I have never seen a face or skin cleanser that comes in a powder form and you simply add water. This defiantly grabbed my attention. I am interested in hearing more about your long term results with this. I have very sensitive skin and I have to be very careful what I use, especially on my face.
So it bubbles because of the baking soda and vitamin C (citric acid), just like in baking.
Looks like a wonderful event!
