Lipid-Balance Cleansing Oil
It doesn’t get smoother than this silky oil cleanser. Soft as cashmere, it melts seamlessly into skin, then transforms with water into a milky emulsion that rinses away for a beautifully supple complexion. Safflower oil gently nourishes and smooths as it’s massaged into the skin. Vitamin E hydrates and protects to restore vitality and bounce to the complexion. Skin is left cleansed and restored, without feeling tight or dry.
HOW IT WORKS
The upper layers of the skin are made up of skin cells surrounded by a sea of oil-soluble lipids. Made up of fatty acids, cholesterol and ceramides, these lipids help to keep the skin’s essential barrier from letting out water and letting in irritants. Linoleic acid, or omega-6, is an essential fatty acid which cannot be synthesised by the skin, but plays a very important role in maintaining the skin’s barrier. Often dry or acne-prone skin types are deficient in linoleic acid levels in the skin. Lipid-Balance Cleansing Oil contains an optimised blend of fatty acids with an excess of linoleic acid to help rebalance the skin for a nourished and healthy-looking complexion. Based on safflower oil, which is made up of more than 70% omega-6, the formula also has a shot of extra linoleic acid to rebalance the skin. Meanwhile, vitamin E neutralises damaging free radicals which can accumulate throughout the day, while moringa oil gently whisks away harmful pollution particles. Oils dissolve in oil, so even stubborn oil-based waterproof make-up doesn’t stand a chance against this effortless cleanser.
