Gentle Cleansing Gel
What is it? This cleansing gel effectively cleanses without disrupting the protective skin barrier, leaving the skin feeling clean and comfortable, but not stripped.
Notes from the Curator: Cleansing shouldn’t be a chore! This glycerin-rich mild & creamy pH friendly (5-5.5) cleansing gel for normal-oily & combination skin, is formulated with gentle surfactants, hydrators and a lipid layer enhancer. It has a beautiful bouncy jelly texture and slip.
Let’s Get Nerdy: The gentle cleansing gel contains Sodium PCA which is a component of the skin’s NMF that increases water content in the top layer of the skin and helps to maintain healthy skin. It also has Panthenol & glycerin to hydrate, moisturise and soothe the skin. It also has Green tea extract which offers antioxidant properties
Formulated with a light fragrance which contains none of the 26 allergens listed under EU cosmetic regulation.
- ABOUT THE BRAND
Natasha Dauncey, founder of Apothaka® is passionate about creating thoughtful formulations which support a healthy skin barrier through a "less is more" approach to skincare. Where so much of the beauty industry is focussed on an unrealistic goal around "perfect" or "flawless" skin, Apothaka® is here to reset the goal to healthy, happy skin (and healthy ageing while we're at it!) for everyone!
Natasha carefully designs her own formulations using the best of what nature & science have to offer (skincare doesn't need to be about one OR the other!). Everything is made in the UK, no pre-made bases are used, giving her full control of the ingredients, which she selects based on their benefits for your skin and their texture. Apothaka® products are about improving the way skin looks and feels but also about enjoying the experience of using them: like bringing a bit of the spa experience at home.
- HOW TO USE
Apply 1-2 pumps of cleanser to damp skin and massage over the face and neck for around a minute, to break down make up, sunscreen & impurities. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Use alone (morning / night) or as a second cleanse, if needed. Can be used around the eye area, but use a dedicated eye make-up remover first for stubborn eye make-up, and avoid getting the product in your eyes.
Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
