How it Works: 4 in 1 Efficiency – a calming, deep cleansing daily face wash, shaving cream, anti-redness soother and weekly face mask. Avocado, Inca Inci and Acai anti - oxidants and omega fatty acids are combined with lab proven Antarctic Glycoproteins, showing protein synthesis, wrinkle reduction and cryoprotection of skin lipid membranes. The natural nutrient clay minerals then work to regulate oil, reduce shine, deep cleanse pores, stimulate healing and protect against the environment.

When & How do I use?

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.

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.

Proverb is very concentrated so apply less than you instinctively want to, the mineral clays are very white - so always use a cloth to remove it. 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. Used twice a day as directed it will last 4- 6 weeks.

Protect, restore, and strengthen your skin day after day

To truly solve your skin concerns it starts at stage one – cleansing. You need to concentrate your energy here before you run off to serums and moisturisers - remember Proverb means truth! Cleansers, face wash and shaving products in most ranges tend to have the cheapest ingredients with high levels of dehydrating, irritating surfactants. Proverb is the antithesis to this. Remember your skin should never be left feeling tight after washing, squeaky clean is not a good thing!


Cleanser for an active life, and a body that doesn’t want unnecessary toxins

The perfect training partner - the natural clay base helps deep cleanse the skin and prevent blocked pores, reducing skin shine. It is ideal after heavy sweating to wash away the dirt and grime post training, while calming the skin and reducing redness. In combination avocado, acai and sesame will ensure your skin is moisturiser and nourished even at stage one - washing!

Natural & organic? Entirely natural with organic ingredients. Most brands would happily say 100%. Proverb means truth. All emulsions made in the UK have to have a preservative. We use the organic certification allowed preservative dehydroacetic acid. Although you are allowed to label it natural it isn’t truly. There is 0.6% in the bottle as legally require.

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 legal 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.

Made in England? Yes, formulated and made in England where our headquarters are. Ingredients are sourced sustainably from around the world. Lifefuelled humans using the products globally.

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.

Lab tests on individual ingredients

Antarctic glycoproteins- With its natural cryoprotective properties against water loss and dry skin allied with increased Collagen synthesis by up to 34% and the ability to reduce wrinkles depth by an average of 44% in just 30 days, this sustainably sourced marine supplement will lead to a younger and firmer-looking complexion.

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.

Skin should never feel tight or dry after washing or showering. So, if this normally happens to you - we would expect over the first 2-3 weeks this should reduce, especially if you are combining the Cleanse & Shave Mud with any of our moisturisers.

You should feel fresh and clean every time you use it.

If you suffer from shaving rash then we would expect this to reduce every time you use it till ideally you no longer suffer with it. You need to rinse your blade with very hot water to remove the mud residue from the metal during shaving.

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.

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 smells clean and calming, citrus with a woody tone.
