The only secret about this cleanser is how utterly ordinary and boring it is. Actually, given the price the formula is downright insulting. This mineral oil-and wax-based moisturizer lacks anything state-of-the-art for skin. There are no antioxidants, skin-repairing ingredients, or cell-communicating ingredients but there is lots of fragrance. What a shame fragrance isn’t skin care! In fact, fragrance is a problem for all skin types (see More Info to find out why). You would be far better off using just plain mineral oil (it’s the first ingredient in this product) if you prefer an oil-based cleanser.
This product contains two extracts of lilies, one from the Nile and the other from India. As exotic as this might sound they have no properties that are helpful for skin. Even if they did, the amount this contains is infinitesimal.
- Overly fragranced.
- Ordinary, standard formula easily replaced by superior options.
- Shockingly overpriced for what you get.
Daily use of products that contain a high amount of fragrance, whether the fragrant ingredients are synthetic or natural, causes chronic irritation that can damage healthy collagen production, lead to or worsen dryness, and impair your skin’s ability to heal. Fragrance-free is the best way to go for all skin types. If fragrance in your skin-care products is important to you, it should be a very low amount to minimize the risk to your skin (Sources: Inflammation Research, December 2008, pages 558–563; Skin Pharmacology and Physiology, June 2008, pages 124–135 and November-December 2000, pages 358–371; Journal of Investigative Dermatology, April 2008, pages 15–19; Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, March 2008, pages 78–82; Mechanisms of Ageing and Development, January 2007, pages 92–105; and British Journal of Dermatology, December 2005, pages S13–S22).
