Top Reasons To Start Using A Facial Oil Cleanser Today
Many people are used to using soap-based facial cleansers. When they hear about oil cleansers, it sounds strange to them. However, there are several drawbacks to soap-based cleansers, and oil cleansers have many extra benefits.
Even the most gentle soap formulas will dry out your skin. They strip the natural layer of good oils from your face. They also tend to be acidic, which creates a PH imbalance in the skin. Disruption of the skin’s acid mantle leads to accelerated signs of aging.
Soap also leaves a residue on your skin. This is particularly true in areas with hard water, which doesn’t play well with soap products. You may not have noticed a residue left by your soap cleanser, but that doesn’t mean it’s not there. It may just be masked by chemicals.
Many manufacturers of facial soap cleansers add tetrasodium EDTA to reduce soap scum residues. This substance is a derivative of formaldehyde and serves as a penetration enhancer. This allows other unnatural ingredients in the formula to penetrate the skin and tissues, possibly even entering the bloodstream.
Oil cleans your skin better. It is a superior makeup remover and also removes dirt. It loosens dead skin for easier removal. When you wipe your skin clean you are also removing any excess oil that was on your skin’s surface when you started the cleaning.
Oil-based facial cleansers moisturize your skin while they are cleaning. Unlike soap that dries you out and disrupts your PH, oil deeply moisturizes and nourishes your skin. Many moisturizer products use chemical-based humectants, but a quality oil-based facial cleanser will be formulated from powerful natural healing oils that feed your skin.
