Solid Facial Cleanser (Grapefruit - for Oily Skin), by Lamazuna
Make your bathroom even more plastic-free, with this vegan solid facial cleanser for oily skin, made in France by Lamazuna.
This cloud-shaped facial cleanser works to deeply and gently cleanse your skin every day! Its formula helps to remove impurities and excess sebum, and unblock pores, leaving skin clean and moisturised.
Morning and/or evening, moisten the cloud and rub it gently over wet skin to produce a fine, creamy lather. Then massage your face before rinsing thoroughly with clean water.
As with all Lamazuna products, the smell is delicious - this cleanser smells of sweet citrus, and screams clean :-).
A bit about the botanical ingredients that make up this solid cleanser...
- Sodium cocoyl isethionate: surfactant derived from coconut oil; gives a soft and creamy lather.
- Stearic acid / palmitic acid (vegetable stearin)**: these waxy substances are used as thickening agents and are found naturally in plant oils. Contrary to what its name may suggest, palmitic acid does not necessarily come from palm oil. In this case, these two ingredients are derived from olive oil.
- Cocos nucifera oil*: coconut oil, used for its nourishing action.
- Prunus amygdalus dulcis oil*: sweet almond oil, protects and nourishes the skin without clogging pores.
- Decyl glucoside: gentle surfactant derived from coconut, used as a cleansing agent and for its foaming properties.
- Fragrance**: from naturally derived ingredients.
- Gardenia jasminoides fruit extract/maltodextrin**: gardenia extract used for its skincare benefits! It uses a natural plant- based sugar as a carrier.
- Tocopherol/helianthus annuus seed oil**: plant-derived antioxidant ( Vitamin E), prevents the oxidation of botanical oils and essential oils; diluted in sunflower oil to make it easier to use.
And the mineral ingredients too...
- Aqua: water, used as a solvent.
- Volcanic sand**: gentle exfoliating agent.
- Moroccan lava clay**: also known as rhassoul or ghassoul, this volcanic clay works to draw out impurities and cleanse the skin, ever so gently.
