Purity Facial Cleanser Review - The Dermatology Review

Purity Facial Cleanser Review



Purity Made Simple Cleanser is an award-winning facial cleanser by skin care brand Philosophy. It was created to have a 3-in-1 approach to cleansing, which includes deep cleaning pores, eliminating makeup build-up, and conditioning the skin with natural oil extracts. The Purity Made Simple Cleanser contains several mild surfactants, including sodium lauroamphoacetate, sodium trideceth sulfate, coco-glucoside, and PEG-120 methyl glucose dioleate. Surfactants attract and suspend oil, dirt, and other impurities on the skin and wash them away.

Another key ingredient in the Purity Made Simple Cleanser is meadowfoam seed oil. Meadowfoam seed oil can help to balance oil production because it closely resembles human sebum. It has a medium to light skin feel that absorbs very quickly without feeling greasy. It can form a protective film on the surface of skin that locks in moisture and delivers nutrients to the skin. In addition, meadowfoam seed oil can keep other oils from oxidizing and going rancid even when exposed to heat, light and/or air. Lastly, the Purity Made Simple Cleanser is infused with a twelve-essential oils blend that helps to soften, soothe, and rejuvenate the skin.
