Cleansing the skin is one of the most important aspects in proper skincare. Traditional cleansers can be loaded with cheap petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, and toxic chemicals that strip the skin of precious oils wreaking havoc on your skin. Using a cleanser that is too rich or drying doesn’t allow your skin to create a healthy metabolism.
The key to an effective skincare regime is finding the right type of organic or natural cleanser to fit your individual needs. Many people prefer foaming cleansers which create rich foam as you apply to the face. Foaming cleansers contain “surfactants” which is a fancy technical term for an ingredient that creates foam or bubbles as it cleanses. Natural foaming cleansers contain ingredients that are often derived from coconut or palm oil to provide generous foam yet maintain gentle cleansing. Foaming cleansers are usually best suited for people with normal or oily skin.
Many people can’t live without their favorite crème cleanser. Crème cleansers provide gentle and thorough cleansing and provide a bit more moisture than foaming cleansers. Nourishing oils such as sunflower, apricot, and almond oil are often found in crème cleansers. Crème cleansers are best suited for normal, dry, and mature skin types.
