Clean & Simple Skincare: Cleanser 101
Facial cleanser, it’s an essential part of everyone’s skincare routines. Some might think that any cleanser will do the trick and clean their face at the end of the day – but the cleanser you use actually makes a huge impact on your skin’s health.
If you use the wrong cleanser, you can immediately throw your skin out of balance. We have a protective film on our skin called the acid mantle, which helps us fight off harmful bacteria and prevents us from losing moisture. Many cleansers strip this acid mantle & overdry skin, especially with a common ingredient in conventional cleansers, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (one of our Top Ingredients to Stay Away From).
Clean cleansers, on the other hand, nourish and keep the skin in balance. Our cleansers have natural cleansing agents like clays & plant extracts to encourage cellular turnover & detox pores. We recommend using a natural cleanser once a day (at night) to remove makeup, oil, dirt, dead skin cells and other environmental pollutants from your face.
If you’re not using a clean cleanser already, it’s time to switch. Find your match below based on your skin type, and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our experts.
