Cleansing is a key element in any skincare routine.


Cleansing your skin twice a day will remove dirt, skin residue in the form of dead cells, excess oil and leave your skin looking healthy and radiant.

Cleansing increases blood flow and circulation, especially if you wash in a circular motion or massage yourself a little.

In addition, on clean skin, cosmetic treatments act more effectively.

The high performance active ingredients would simply sit on your skin and not be unable to perform their intended functions without thorough cleansing.

There are many different types of cleansers on the market, to suit all skin types and preferences. 


Why is it not enough to clean your face with water alone?⁠

Water alone may not be able to:⁠
🔹Remove makeup and dead skin cells⁠
🔹Remove oil, dirt and other pollutants⁠
🔹Cleanse pores and prevent skin conditions such as acne.⁠
