This Micellar Water is very cleansing without drying out the skin. Perfect for use as an on-the-go make-up remover, because it can be used simply with a cotton wool pad without the need for washing off.
Containing soothing ingredients such as aloe vera and betaine (a natural osmolyte extracted from sugar beets), it moisturises while it cleans.
Suitable to use either on its own or with the addition of actives / extracts / essential oils.
Micelles are tiny balls of cleansing molecules which surfactants form when they reach a certain concentration in water. Micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin.
This water contains humectants such as xylitol (a naturally occurring alcohol found in most plant material), betaine and glycerine, which keep the moisture locked in the skin as the water cleans.
Most ideal for oily / combination skins, this water is like a cleanser & toner in one! But could also work for dry / mature skins with a few additions.
Floral Water / Aqueous Extracts - 1-5%
Vegetable Oils - 0-0.1%
