Stop washing your face with harsh soaps and start cleansing your face for healthier skin using micellar water from MyChelle.
Traditional make-up removers and facial cleanses use harsh chemical solvents to dissolve make-up pigments. These solvents often strip the skin’s natural protectors, leave behind residues, and cause skin tugging as you wipe them away. Enter micellar water, the well-kept French secret that is finally making waves across the pond. Micellar water is a gentle skin cleanser for all skin types that removes dirt, oil, and make-up in a single no-rinse step without leaving an oily residue behind.
Micellar water sounds like something straight out of the future, but it was actually developed over 100 years ago in France to deal with the notoriously harsh water there. Micellar water is composed of micelles, which are tiny spheres of oil cleansing molecules, suspended in soft water. The micelles are made up of double ended molecules where one end loves water (hydrophilic) and the other end prefers oil instead (hydrophobic). Put in water, they form tiny spheres with a water loving outside and a water-hating, oil loving, inside. When you gently apply micellar water to your skin the spheres break up, attract all the oil, dirt and grime, and then close up again, capturing them as you wipe them away.
Mychelle takes micellar water to the next level with strawberry and kiwi extracts that help soften and refresh all skin types along with anti-oxidant rich lotus flower and bamboo extracts. These ingredients work to form a barrier that protects the skin from pollutants, irritants, and damaging free-radicals. Pick up a bottle today so you can feel (and see) the MyChelle, micellar water difference.
