I ask each new client which skin care products they use at home. While most use correct serums and moisturizers, I find the answer for which cleanser they use is often “whatever is around”. This could be anything from bar soap, antibacterial hand soap, or even shampoo! Not all cleansers are created equally, just because its good for one part of your body doesn’t mean its good for your face.

Cleansers made for hands and body can be too stripping and harsh for your face. This will leave your skin irritated and with an impaired barrier function. Cleansing is the first step in s proper skin care routine, this sets up how well your skin absorbs your following products, regulates your pH and sebum production to keep your skin functioning as it should.
 Naturopathica carries three different daily cleansers. The first and most popular is their Aloe Cleansing Gel. This cleanser is good for all skin types and conditions, plus contains over 50% aloe! Aloe is incredibly soothing and repairs damage done to cells by reducing redness and inflammation. This gel effectively washes away dirt and makeup without being over striping.
Second is the Chamomile Cleansing Milk. This is perfect for normal to oily skin. It is also great for hormonal, dehydrated and those who suffer from rosacea. This cleansing milk contains German Chamomile extract which is known for inhibiting the production of free radicals, is anti inflammatory and helps repair broken capillaries. Rose water balances the skins oil content and moringa seed extract is nutrient dense seed that helps diminish the appearance of wrinkles and acne.
Lastly, we have the Sweet Lupine make up remover and cleansing cream. This is a 2 in 1 cleanser designed for normal, dry, and sensitive skin. It gently removes make up, cleanses, hydrates, and plumps the skin. Sweet lupine protein is high in amino acids that stimulates the repair response in the skin, this amps up the collagen production and improves barrier function. Wild mango kernel butter repairs and protects dry skin and sea fennel extract regulates the regeneration of keratin and helps remineralize the skin for a softer, smoother appearance.
Stop by today and let’s set you up with the right cleanser for you and get you on your way to more beautiful skin.
