Micellar water first appeared in France in the 1990s. Initially, the cosmetic solution was intended for women with sensitive skin. This agent replaced hard tap water. For a long time, micellar water could be found only in French pharmacies. But soon, Europeans and Americans grew fond of this cosmetic product, and it quickly gained popularity.
The main feature of such a cosmetic is that it is a natural and hypoallergenic item, suitable for women with any skin type. The main task of this cosmetic care is delicate makeup. Therefore, it doesn’t contain soap, alcohol, silicone, and aggressive surfactants. You can even use it to remove eye cosmetics. The product received its name from the world “micelles”(these are the microparticles that cleanse the dermis from residues of decorative and skincare cosmetics, sebum, dust, etc.) It gently cleanses without causing irritation/dryness or damaging your protective barrier. As a rule, the tonic has no color or smell.
A multifunctional product for cleansing and care
The agent can be found in an assortment of many cosmetic brands. These products may differ in composition. Thus, they can have a moisturizing, softening, soothing, and toning effect. As a rule, they can be used to:
gently cleanse dirt and sebum;
care for acne problems.
Depending on the composition, the treatment can be used for daily cleansing and toning. The products with organic composition not only cleanse, but also fight acne and keep your skin fresh and healthy.
Micellar water doesn’t replace tonic. It can only tone up your face. We recommend you to use special products to effectively prepare your face for make-up.
