Erno Laszlo Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse Review



Erno Laszlo Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse is a gentle morning cleanser that is said to cleanse overnight impurities from pores while smoothing away buildup on the surface. The key ingredient in this cleanser is sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, a type of anionic surfactant that can be derived from coconut. A surfactant works by lowering the surface tension between two substances, such as two liquids or a liquid and a solid. A surfactant molecule contains one end that is hydrophilic (attracted to water) and one end that is lipophilic (attracted to oil). This allows surfactants to attract and suspends oils, dirt, and other impurities that have accumulated on the skin and wash them away, leaving the skin clean. Anionic surfactants are those that have a negative charge on their polar head group, and are most useful for applications that require good cleansing and foam.

Another key ingredient in the Erno Laszlo Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse is Oryza sativa (rice) extract. Rice extract increases skin hydration and may provide anti-aging benefits. It
stimulates the synthesis of filaggrin, a protein involved in the structural integrity of the stratum corneum. Therefore, rice extract may be able to reinforce the barrier function of skin, which would help to prevent water loss and keep harmful environmental irritants out of the skin. Rice extract is also said to increase the synthesis of collagen, which can help to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles over time. There are other beneficial ingredients in the Erno Laszlo Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse, such as charcoal powder, aloe leaf juice, sunflower seed oil, kiwi fruit extract, and more. However, these ingredients are present in very low concentrations since they are listed after the preservative in this formula.
