qualities of a good cleanse:
- Maintains a healthy functioning lipid barrier
- Does not damage the beneficial microbial flora
- Does not introduce additional toxicity
- Does not cause problematic inflammation
- Provides minerals and lipids to replaces lost nutrition during the cleansing process
The cleansing process should support and improve skin integrity without introducing toxicity. You may not think of a face cleanse impacting long term skin health, but it does. If the lipid barrier is aggressively stripped and inflammation is triggered on a regular basis from the cleansing process, collagen and elastin production can decrease and cause a loss is skin suppleness and elasticity. Damages to the microbial flora (from preservatives, anti-bacterial and aggressive active ingredients) can have major impacts on the skin's ability to fend off pathogenic bacterium.
what to expect:
This cleanse is not formulated with detergent and does not contain a high concentration of soap, so don't expect a big, fun and foamy lather. A lather is actually irrelevant to a functional cleanse. You may notice a very mild exfoliation from the clay blend, but this formula is pretty smooth. A small percentage of people may experience a little tingle or a very tolerable burning sensation. This is completely normal and characteristic of mineral rich dead sea salt.
pair it with a good moisture supplement:
While the cleansing process can have major impacts on skin health, following up with a good moisturizer is essential to maintaining a strong lipid barrier, fending off inflammation and supporting protein synthesis. Use our Lipid Matrix Face Serum or our Protective SPF Face Cream for best results. Both of these products are equipped with essential and supplemental nutrition to maintain strong, supple, resilient skin. These ZERO WATER formulas support completely functional without any novelty or toxic ingredients.
A good, mild cleanser and lipid moisturizer combo is the foundation of any health oriented skin care routine.
Very versatile cleanser and helped prevent stripping my skin of all of its oils. I also use it as a mask too!
I bought this as a gift for my mother for mother’s day. She said she loves it. So high five ✋🏼
