GENTLE CLEANSING GEL HAS A NEW LOOK! Same winning formulation but now in a recyclable aluminium tube - and 125ml instead of 100ml for the same price!

Cleansing shouldn't be a chore! This glycerin-rich mild & creamy pH friendly (5-5.5) cleansing gel for normal-oily & combination skin, is formulated with gentle surfactants, hydrators and a lipid layer enhancer. With a beautiful bouncy jelly texture and slip, it effectively cleanses without disrupting the protective skin barrier, leaving the skin feeling clean and comfortable, but not stripped. 

Low - no foam rinse off formulation. To understand why the presence of foam doesn't imply a harsh / stripping cleanser, read this post.

Skin type:  oily, combination, balanced

Skin goal:   gentle non-stripping cleansing, light make up removal, skin barrier health

Key ingredients:  sodium PCA, panthenol, green tea

Lightly fragranced: fresh, bergamot & orange blossom notes

Presentation: Recyclable 125ml aluminium tube with screwcap (+ optional tube squeezer key)

Sodium PCA: a component of the skin's NMF which increases water content in the top layer of the skin and helps to maintain healthy skin

Panthenol & glycerin: to hydrate, moisturise and soothe the skin

Green tea extract: offers antioxidant properties

Formulated with a light fragrance which contains none of the 26 allergens listed under EU cosmetic regulation.  

pH: 5-5.5

Apply 1-2 pumps of cleanser to damp skin and massage over the face and neck for around a minute, to break down make up, sunscreen & impurities. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Use alone (morning / night) or as a second cleanse, if needed. Can be used around the eye area, but use a dedicated eye make-up remover first for stubborn eye make-up, and avoid getting the product in your eyes.

Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

Shelf life is 12 months once opened
