When & how do I use it?

To cleanse wet face, massage Cleanse & Shave Nutrient Mud upwards, using small circular motions and remove with warm water and a clean face cloth. For best results use morning and evening.

To shave apply to half of your face, shave, then repeat on other side. To combine - first shave, then massage residue of the mud around face to cleanse. Rinse off and/or remove with a wet cloth. Pat face dry.

Then apply Hydration Pro Moisturiser: Gently massage in an upward motion, making sure to cover the entire face and neck. Apply every morning and evening after washing your face.

How much do I use?

To wash your face, use a small blueberry sized piece with water. To shave use a large blueberry sized piece. Wherever possible remove all cleansers with a clean face cloth. It produces a stimulating action, removing pore clogging dirt and reduces the chance of spot producing bacteria building up. 125ml/ 4.2 Fl Oz.

To moisturise, use coffee bean sized piece to cover your face & neck. This product is 50ml/ 1.7 Fl Oz.

Proverb is very concentrated so apply less than you instinctively want to, you can always add more.

BUILDING THE RIGHT MORNING ROUTINE

The Stepping Up Skincare Program is the first stage of really taking care of your skin. To keep your skin in peak condition, you need to commit to using your products every morning and evening. This routine is about skin, but also mindset. Take the chance to focus on yourself - concentrating your mind on your goals for the day while you cleanse + moisturise.

HYDRATION STARTS WITH REMOVING THE WRONG SKINCARE, INGREDIENTS & HABITS

Cleansing your skin is the cornerstone to having a good complexion. So many face wash and cleansing products contain harsh surfactants that dry and erode your natural acid mantle balance - crucial to keeping your skin in good health. Step one is to give up the face wash gels, soaps, shampoos or any cleanser that leaves you skin feeling tight after you have washed. Oh, and to remember that drinking a lot of water solves a lot of things for your skin and body!

MOISTURISER BUILT TO PROTECT SKINS WHO PLAY HARD

Ingredients taken from elite sports diet sheets formulated for skins under stress, frequently exposed to the elements that belong to a body that is driven to perform and always work hard.

Our dedication to natural & organic Greenwashing brands pretending to be natural, is rife and only getting worse. We will only ever tell you the truth about our ingredients, the sources and which elements are natural, organic or the legally required preservatives. We formulate with painstaking dedication to this mantra for your health but also as it ensures the elite grown version of each ingredient.

In vitro & in vivo lab proven actives? Yes, we have selected many active ingredients with strong in vitro and in vivo testing results for the individual ingredients. Combining this with researching the source, origins and ethics of each ingredient.

‘Clean’ brands tend to be younger and newer to market and thus don’t usually invest the large amount of funds needed to clinically trial products to prove results in an independent lab. Not us; we are firmly committed to do this as the clean, organic and natural sector has to prove it works. As we grow the brand, we will grow the investment into clinical testing as a priority but below are our test results so far!

Dermatological testing: All Proverb skincare has been successfully Dermatologically tested

Full formula clinical in vivo trials: Hydration Pro Moisturiser has been clinically proven to moisturise.* In a controlled study Hydration Pro Moisturiser outperformed the leading male skincare brand’s daily moisturiser.* This level of testing at launch from a young, new brand is unheard of in the organic and natural sector.

HYDRATION PRO MOISTURISER

Amino acids and peptide complex from coconuts - in vitro tests showed a 32% reduction in the number of wrinkles when used twice daily over a 42 day period.

Hyaluronic acid proven to reduce TEWL (transepidermal water loss) and increase skin hydration by up to 10% from the control group and more than 20% reduction of oiliness was seen in 12 weeks.

CLEANSE & SHAVE NUTRIENT MUD

Freeze-dried acai berry powder has the highest ORAC value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) of any other fruit/berry per 100g serving.

Stage one with the Nutri Mud is to get used to it as it is such a different texture to most face wash and cleansers! We are always truthful and it takes an open mind which once people conquer they tell us they would never go back! It helps to not use too much in this phase and ensure you use some water with it.

Your skin should immediately look calmer and more of an even colour tone once you have used the Cleanse and Shave Nutrient Mud.

After applying Hydration Pro Moisturiser your skin should feel immediately more comfortable and softer

We would expect within the first week that your skin will look brighter, less tired and feel more nourished.

The combination of ingredients is focused on reducing skin stress and improving hydration so your skin looks smooth and never dry or tired.

Remember as your skin cycle is approximately 28 days when you change to any new skincare you should commit to 4 weeks to ensure your skin likes it.

Cleanse & Shave Nutrient Mud

It has a very unique texture-like whipped mud that glides on and makes your skin feel cool. Apply it neat and it feels like a creamy clay mask texture. However, as soon as you add water to your face it becomes an emulsified creamy face wash allowing you to really massage the skin and boost blood and nutrients to the skin cells.

The combination of natural clays is crucial to the anti-redness and smooth, even skin colour, but they are white. All skins - but especially darker skins definitely need a clean face flannel or muslin cloth to remove it. This is a win, as the cloth will also provide a gentle exfoliation.

It is the Proverb aroma people report they love the most, it smells clean and calming. Citrus and a woody tone behind this.

Hydration Balance Pro Moisturiser

Citrus tones of bergamot, lemon peel and both sweet and bitter orange made more interesting with a unique blend of basil, thyme and mountain pepper so it is never too sweet.

A creamy texture that glides on and absorbs easily.
