Ingredients

AQUA

Solvent. Water. The main vehicle for our Milk Cleanser.

CANOLA OIL

Emollient and skin conditioning. Sustainably produced, deodorized and purified Swedish canola oil (from rapeseed oil) gently dissolves makeup and dirt. Canola oil is commonly used in cosmetics and is well-tolerated, skin wise. It is slightly higher in oleic acid (at around 60%), with linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids at a total of just over 30%, making it a good all-around oil for most, and especially for drier and eczema prone skins.

GLYCERIN

Humectant and skin protecting. Technically a sugar alcohol, glycerin is one of the oldest, most common and most versatile humectants used in cosmetics. It moisturises and protects the skin, accelerates skin barrier recovery and has antimicrobial properties, among other things. We use the vegetable, organic kind, made from rapeseed, corn and soy.

POLYGLYCERYL-3 DICITRATE/STEARATE

Emulsifying and surfactant. An emulsifier, put simply, enables the mixing of water and oil into an emulsion. This particular one is gentle on the skin, non-ionic, based on glycerin, stearic acid and citric acid, and is made from rapeseed and RSPO certified palm oils.

SODIUM LEVULINATE

Skin conditioning and preservative. Sodium levulinate is the sodium salt of levulinic acid, an organic acid that in this case is derived from sugarcane. Together with sodium anisate and plant derived glycerin, it makes up the preservation system we use for our Milk Cleanser. At the appropriate pH, the salts transform into acid, and voilà – product preserved.

CETYL ALCOHOL

Thickening and emulsion stabilising. A fatty alcohol made from palm oil. Please note that like sugar alcohols, e.g. glycerin or xylitol, fatty alcohols are not the same as denatured alcohol (ethanol); both sugar alcohols and fatty alcohols have moisturising and conditioning properties, whereas denatured alcohol has a completely different function in skincare products (and can be drying on skin).

SODIUM ANISATE

Antimicrobial, flavouring agent and preservative. The salt form of star anis derived organic acid. The other half of our preservation system.

XYLITOL

Humectant and skin conditioning. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol and moisturises and conditions skin, whilst possessing anti-bacterial properties. There is some interesting research that suggests xylitol has the ability to inhibit bacterial biofilm on skin, which in turn may be the cause of many skin issues. The one we use is made in Finland from European hardwood.

XANTHAN GUM

Gel forming, thickening and emulsion stabilising. A natural and commonly used thickener in cosmetics, xanthan gum is a polysaccharide produced from sugars through fermentation. Fun fact: it derives its name from the species of bacteria used in the fermentation process, Xanthomonas campestris.

CITRIC ACID

Buffering agent. Citric acid is a commonly used buffering, i.e. pH adjusting, agent in cosmetics. It is made through bacterial fermentation and shifts the pH of the product into the acidic range. This is closer to the natural pH of the skin, which may range from 4 to 7, but is usually thought to be between 5 and 6, with recent studies, however, indicating it to be below 5.

Erittäin riittoisa ja puhdistava tuote. Ei jätä ihoa kuivaksi. Poistaa meikin erinomaisesti ja tätä tulen ostamaan lisää.

The perfect product for my dry skin. Love it. Makes my skin soft and keeps it hydrated.

Best cleanser I’ve ever used.
My skin is dry, sensitive and acne prone and for the last few years I’ve been battling hormonal cystic acne. My skin instantly loved the soothing effect of the cleanser – it’s the only product that has been able to calm down my skin. My skin was less red and felt much smoother already after one day. Now after a week it feels like is also is helping to speed up the healing of the acne bumps. I’m using this with the facial toner.

Perfect for my sensitive and acne prone skin for which the gel cleanser was only a little bit too potent. Leaves skin soft and hydrated. I love how this cleanser doesn’t really smell like anything. Plain and simple but it works wonderfully!

The best cleanser! <3

Great product! Lovely really “creamy” looking (but not greasy at all) cleanser, that does what it is supposed to do. Rinses off really well and leaves a soft and clean skin, and what most important, doesn’t dry skin at all. A real “go-to” milky cleanser, and I love the package. I don’t use heavy makeup so cannot comment on how this works for that, but I’ll think it will be no problem at all.
