This sub-acid resurfacing gel cleanser has a pH of 4.5, which is an optimal pH for maintaining our acid mantle – our protective outer skin layer – to shield our skin from environmental pollutants. It is formulated with a gentle, non-ionic (less foamy but less skin-irritating) surfactant derived from coconut to keep the pH level balanced. Its sulfate-free formula is enriched with sodium hyaluronate and betaine to hydrate and plump skin. Salt is used as a natural thickening agent, while its essential minerals help absorb dirt and impurities to deep cleanse pores, soften skin, and restore hydration. Willow bark extract, a natural BHA, helps exfoliate dead skin cells. Dense micro bubbles effectively remove traces of makeup impurities and debris, and unclog pores without stripping skin of its natural oils.
