A cleanser is the first step of any skincare routine as it is so important to remove any dirt, impurities and pollution before you apply treatment products to the skin. However, it can be tempting to over cleanse skin, particularly if it is prone to oiliness or blemishes. This disrupts the skin barrier layer, which is created by the body from natural oils that help to seal in moisture, and is populated by friendly bacteria, defending against pathogens. Over cleansing leaves the skin vulnerable to dryness and can disrupt the skin microflora.
We have created 2 natural cleansers which are both designed to respect the skin's natural barrier layer:
Our Neutralise Cleanser is a gentle cleansing gel designed to minimise skin barrier disruption for combination and sensitive skin. It is oil free, making it lightweight on the skin, and contains soothing and calming ingredients. It cleanses gently yet effectively without irritation.
Our Nourish Cleanser is an oil based cleanser for normal to dry skin which can also be used as a make up remover for all skin types as part of a double cleansing routine. Massage this rich cleansing balm into dry skin and then apply warm water to turn it into a milk that can be rinsed away clean. It can optionally be used with a muslin cloth to remove heavy make up or for added exfoliation.
All S5 Cleansers are ideal for sensitive skin and are free from parabens, SLS/SLES, PEGS, DEA, Mineral Oil, Silicon, Propylene Glycol, GMO or synthetic fragrances.
