Dry/Mature/Normal/Combination/Sensitive. Leaves your skin soft, smooth, clean and nourished. Aloe, Green Tea, White Tea and Rooibos Tea have a soothing effect on the skin. Rooibos is a powerful player in the team of antioxidants that this brings to your skin. Recently, Japanese scientists discovered that Rooibos tea contains a counterpart of the enzyme Super Oxide Dismutase (S.O.D.), which is an antioxidant that attacks free radicals and limits their damaging effects on the skin. Green and white tea are both powerful antioxidants.
It does not contain the typical surfactants that most cleansing gels contain. Instead, it’s composed of oils and fats, which are mild and effective cleansing agents. Oils and fats are actually complex compounds called triglycerides. All oils and fats are mixtures of triglycerides with different fatty acids 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 a substance has a great affinity for oil, while hydrophilic means that a substance 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 acid attaches.
The cooperation of the hydrophilic and lipophilic molecules allows the cleanser to break past the surface tension of the skin and remove the dirt and oils beyond your skin surface. The hydrophilic molecules are attracted to water, which helps the water dampen the skin surface deeper and more thoroughly than normal. Without the dampening assistance of the hydrophilic molecules, the product would simply bead up on the skin. The lipophilic molecules act like a magnet to dirt in the skin; once the molecules encounter the dirt, they cling to it and allow it to be washed off. Likewise, lipophilic molecules show affinity toward oil, which is washed away in the same fashion.
