Gentle cleansing gel
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.
