The Science Behind Double Cleansing

In the ever-evolving world of skincare, one practice that has gained significant attention for its efficacy is double cleansing. This two-step cleansing method goes beyond the conventional single cleanse, promising to leave your skin not just clean, but truly revitalized. Let's delve into the science behind double cleansing and discover why it's becoming a staple in skincare routines worldwide.

The First Cleanse: Breaking Down Surface Impurities

The initial step in double cleansing involves the use of an oil-based cleanser. Contrary to concerns about putting oil on the skin, this first cleanse works on the principle that like dissolves like. The oil-based cleanser binds with sebum, makeup, and other oil-based impurities, breaking them down effortlessly. This step is crucial for lifting away stubborn, waterproof makeup and pollutants that water-based cleansers alone may struggle to remove.

The oil molecules in the cleanser adhere to the oil-based impurities on your skin, forming micelles. These micelles encapsulate the unwanted substances, allowing them to be easily rinsed away without stripping the skin's natural oils.

Double Makeup Remover


This oil-based makeup remover and cleanser are meticulously crafted with the enriching benefits of Soybean and Macadamia Seed Oil. Gently yet effectively, it dissolves even the most stubborn makeup, leaving your skin feeling nourished and refreshed. The power of Soybean and Macadamia Seed Oil not only ensures a thorough cleanse, but also imparts essential nutrients, promoting a healthy, radiant complexion.

How to Use:

  1. For eyes and lips: Soak an adequate amount on cotton pads. Leave cotton pads on the eyes and lips for a few seconds, then gently wipe off.
  2. For face: Take an adequate amount and mix with water. Gently rub all over the face. Finally, rinse off with lukewarm water. Follow up with a second cleanser, such as the Pore Mask or the Purifying Foaming Wash.

  2. Smooth over the skin using circular movements.
  3. Rinse off thoroughly with water. Pat skin dry.


The Second Cleanse: Targeting Water-Based Residues


Following the oil-based cleanse, the second step involves a foaming or water-based cleanser. This step is designed to address water-based impurities like sweat and environmental pollutants, providing a thorough clean without compromising the skin's moisture balance.

Water-based cleansers typically contain surfactants that attract water molecules on one end and oil molecules on the other. This dual nature allows them to bind with water-based impurities, facilitating their removal during rinsing.
