sodium lauryl sulfate - surfectant
This is one of the most common used ingredients in facial cleansers and is actually doing a whole lot of damage!
🙅🏼♀️ This ingredient is what causes the foaming effect in your cleanser. The truth is that this is responsible for stripping your skin of its natural oil and hydration. Doing this can cause your skin to go into dehydration mode and you will notice a ”tight“ feeling after cleansing. This is a clear signal that the cleanser is too stripping! This leads to:
💥 Irritated and itchy skin
💥 Overly sensitive skin
Do yourself a favor.. check your cleanser and if this ingredient is listed, stop using it. Opt for a PH balanced cleanser like the Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser or Max Stem Cell Facial Cleanser from @imageskincare which will remove dirt and build up fron the day without disrupting your moisture barrier.
We carry Image Skincare at The Facial Room because everyone deserves plant based skincare that is effective 🙃👌🏼
