On the fence about foaming face wash? If you're in need of a new face wash that is good for sensitive skin and removing grime, we've got you covered. The grace & stella foaming face wash has nutritious ingredients that will get you to your skin goals in a snap. Keep reading for the dish on our of our all-time favourite products!
To avoid removing oils and causing skin irritation, we've chosen only the best ingredients. To keep our face wash gentle and calming, check out the following goods we did (and didn't) include in our facial cleanser.
Sodium Hyaluronate or Hyaluronic Acid is a derivative of Hyaluronic Acid, which has a cult following in skincare for a reason. Its ability to maximize your own skin's hydration is pretty unmatched in skincare.
Our bodies even naturally contain Hyaluronic Acid! (That's why it's such a good ingredient for our natural skincare products.)
We covered the many benefits of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in this blog post, but here's the skinny:
HA can create dewy, supple skin
It can reduce fine lines and wrinkles
It can protect against environmental toxins by sealing your skin barrier with hydration
And HA keeps skin bright and bouncy
Did you know that pollution affects your skin? Whether you live in a city or the country also affects your skin. Skin ageing, inflammation, and even allergic skin conditions can all be exacerbated by environmental factors. That's why we use Hyaluronic Acid.
We chose to use Hyaluronate Acid in our foaming face wash because it promotes hydration and healthy-looking skin, which we all need in our lives.
Rosa Damascena Flower Water
AKA, rosewater: sensitive skin's BFF. This magic ingredient keeps your skin moisturized for optimal facial hygiene. Rosewater actually helps restore your skin's pH, which can get thrown off from all sorts of external factors. We put it in our wash (and many other products) to keep your skin supple and hydrated.
Rosewater also reduces redness and inflammation. It's also naturally antibacterial which helps with what else? Dreaded Acne. Calm your pimples with rosewater!
Using rosewater in our face wash helps prevent acne by cleaning out clogged pores and replenishing them instantly with the many benefits of rosewater.
Aloe Barbadensis Extract
Also known as Aloe Leaf extract, is commonly used in natural beauty products. We all know that aloe is great after too much time in the sun, but why is it used in so many skincare products?
Aloe is rich in vitamins and has two main functions: to soothe and moisturize the skin.
In our face wash, aloe does just that. In combination with other hydrating and anti-inflammatory ingredients, aloe is the cherry on top.
Switching skincare products can be a bit daunting, which is why we're here to quell your fears. We've got all your questions on our foaming fash wash, answered.
How Do I Use a Foaming Face Wash?
Cleansing is always the first step in your morning and evening skincare routine. Pump once into your palm and lather into a moist face. Once you've covered from your forehead to just below your jawline, rinse and pat dry.
Once you're done, you're all ready for your toner, serum, mask or moisturizer.
Will My Skin Be Red or Irritated?
It's normal for some slight redness after cleansing, and be sure you don't use water that's too warm. If you have skin irritation or redness that persists, stop using the product and chat with us to find a solution.
But ultimately, you shouldn't have any irritation when using this product.
Does This Product Have Any Certifications?
All of our products are vegan and Leaping Bunny Certified! This means that in addition to using only natural ingredients, our products are cruelty-free and not tested on animals. It's better for the planet and better for you, our beloved customers.
Does This Product Have Any Sketchy Ingredients?
We publish our ingredients front and center on the product page so you know exactly what you're putting on your body. We don't include any fragrance in the product, so everything you smell is naturally derived from the aloe and rosewater.
You won't find any sulphates, dyes, or parabens in our products either, because we don't like that stuff!
How Does It Feel?
Oh so fresh! Our face wash won't leave your skin feeling tight or dry like others. Skin exfoliating ingredients can leave you feeling dry in your first skincare routine step, so we avoided that feeling for our foaming face wash.
Wait, What Are Those Other Ingredients?
There are a handful of ingredients you might not recognize in our face wash, but they're pretty harmless. Check them out on the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Database if you need more information! They're all rated low in categories that address cancer, immunotoxicity, and reproductive health.
Essentially, we need a couple of extra ingredients to keep the product fresh for you. Without preservatives, the product wouldn't last as long.
