The Science Behind the Product
This cleanser contains volcanic ash that gently exfoliates and polishes the skin while stimulating cellular production. It also helps kill surface bacteria while regulating sebum production by reducing the need of the skin to produce oil.
Here is why exfoliation is so important
The average human generates a new layer of skin every two to four weeks (cellular cycle). At the end of the cycle, the old, dead cells on the surface are shed. In the event the cells are not shed, a build-up of cells results. The skin will start to appear dull, the texture becomes rough and the skin’s capacity to absorb moisturizing products is reduced. Stress, pollution and UV rays also tend to slow down epidermal turnover time. If the old, dead skin cells are not removed, bacteria builds and together the bacteria, oil, and dead skin can clog the sebaceous pores leading to superficial spots or blackheads. If you do not exfoliate on a regular basis your skin will become clogged with toxins and will not be able ‘to breathe’. This will result in dull, oily looking skin and may cause skin conditions such as acne. It also means that blood cannot circulate adequately, and toxins will continue to build up.
Impurities, dirt and bacteria from the atmosphere, are oil based. Water and oil do not mix. Because oil-based impurities do not dissolve in water, a cleanser without the use of harsh detergents and strippers is a must to makes impurities soluble (mobile) enough to be washed away. SeneGence 3-in-1 Cleansers (and SeneDerm Body Wash) contain a molecule that has, on one end, an oil molecule to attract and bind to the oil base impurities. The other end of the same molecule has a liquid molecule to mix and bind to water. Once applied, the molecule binds to impurities with one end and water lifts (water attracts water) and washes away the entire cleansing molecule removing the oil-based impurities that attached to the one end of the molecule.
Our four smooth luxurious unique formulations contain the finest ingredients nature and technology have to offer for dry, normal to dry, and normal to oily skin types. Enriched with plant extracts and vitamins, our 3-in-1 suds-free cleansers are designed and formulated to clean, tone, and exfoliate in one easy step! Blended without the use of harsh detergents, but containing the necessary mixtures, exfoliants, and toners, the SeneDerm 3-in-1 cleanser formulations effectively remove oil where needed without discoloring the skin. The SeneDerm cleanser formulations add moisture to dry skin or maintain the moisture content as appropriate, restores the skin’s proper pH balance, and exfoliates dead skin while preparing the skin for the next step.
