Notes from the Curator: This gentle cleanser is specially formulated for even the most sensitive skin, to lightly exfoliate and help keep blackheads and dead skin cells at bay. Encapsulated salicylic acid helps fight breakouts for clearer, softer skin. This gentle pore Cleansing Oil is great for congested skins. It helps soften impurities for easier removal, it is very effective at removing pollution and debris, leaving the skin feeling hydrated and very well nourished.
Let’s get Nerdy: Double encapsulation of Salicylic Acid is a multi-layer technology. The Salicylic Acid is contained in sub-micron spheres (0.1-2 microns in diameter) which are then re-encapsulated into larger microspheres (30-50 microns in diameter). The wall of the microsphere ruptures when the product is rubbed onto the skin when in the presence of water. At this point, the sub-micronspheres are released onto the skin. Salicylic Acid double encapsulated technology extends the release of the Salicylic Acid onto the skin. Itexposes the skin to small amounts of acid over a longer period of time, rather than one large amount at once. This unique feature allows higher levels of Salicylic Acid to remain on the skin for several hours. for better efficacy and acne-fighting power without irritation.
- About the Brand
Lovinah was created by Joy Ekhator as a modern interpretation of the ancient herbal traditions she grew up experiencing in her native Nigeria through her grandmother who was an herbalist, a traditional doctor, bone setter & midwife. Lovinah was initially started as a hobby, as Joy worked in tech in the U.S. Three back to back pregnancies, coupled with the frustration of not getting the promotions she deserved, the stress & hormones took a toll on her skin & health. She says, “I quit my job & went to Africa to seek peace & brainstorm on my next month. I came back to the States & started working on Lovinah full time".
