This cleanser has a lotion texture which leaves your skin soft, smooth, clean and nourished. Aloe, green tea, white tea and rooibos tea both have a soothing effect on the skin. Rooibos is a powerful player in the team of antioxidants this crème brings to your skin. Recently, Japanese scientists found that rooibos tea contains a mimic of the enzyme Super Oxide Dismutase (S.O.D.) which is an antioxidant that attacks the free radicals and limits their damaging effects on the skin. Green and white tea are both powerful antioxidants.
This Herbal-Tea Cleanser is a very effective cleanser for dry, mature, sensitive and normal skin types. It does not contain the typical surfactants that most cleansing gels contain.
It is composed of oils and fats which are mild and effective cleansing agents. All oils and fats are complex compounds called triglycerides. All oils and fats are a mixture of triglycerides with a different fatty acid attached. To further explain, an oil molecule is formed from one glycerin molecule and three fatty acid molecules. All fatty acid molecules are lipophilic and hydrophilic. Lipophilic means that it has a great affinity for oil. Hydrophilic means that it has a great affinity for water. The glycerin component of an oil or fat is an alcohol with three locations on its molecule where the hydrophilic molecule of the fatty acids attaches.
The hydrophilic molecules are attracted to water which helps the water "wet" the surface to be cleaned, permitting the water to reach more of the surface. With out the 'wetting" assistance of the hydrophilic molecules the product would bead up on the skin and not soak the surface. The lipophilic molecules act like a magnet and are attracted to dirt and oils, they embed into the dirt and remove it. The lipophilic molecules show infinity toward oil and the molecules squeeze together in an attempt to escape water. The action of the hydrophilic molecules and the lipophilic molecules allows product to break the surface tension and forces water into the skin, allowing it to and remove the dirt and oils beyond your skin surface.
Cleanse your face and neck every morning and night. Always cleanse in circular motions in an upward direction. Be gentle with your skin; you do not need heavy pressure to cleanse. You don't need to use anything but your hands; washcloths are optional.
