    Description

    This cleansing micellar water is enriched with a xylitol complex (0.5%) and sodium PCA (1%) to effectively remove face and eye makeup, sunscreen with SPF, and other impurities. Vegan-certified micelles based on medium-length glyceride help nourish the skin and restore its comfort. The xylitol complex uses a 3D hydro concept designed to maintain moisture circulation in all skin layers, increase hyaluronic acid synthesis and reduce skin irritation and inflammation. The use of Sodium PCA makes for a better moisturizer compared to glycerol, helping to restore the skin's proper moisture balance. Additionally, the polysaccharide inulin found in this micellar water has prebiotic effects, which aid in slowing down transepidermal water loss and nurturing the skin's microbiota. By using this product regularly, you can obtain flawless, clear, and glowing skin. [1][2]

    AQUA, PEG-6 CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC GLYCERIDES, PROPANEDIOL, SODIUM PCA, INULIN, FRUCTOSE, XYLITYLGLUCOSIDE, ANHYDROXYLITOL, XYLITOL, GLUCOSE, GLYCERIN, LACTIC ACID, PHENYLPROPANOL, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL.

    Scientific validity

    This micellar water contains a vegan certified medium-length glyceride, which is a combination of glycerol and fatty acid ester. It forms micelles that help cleanse the skin, removing impurities, makeup, and even SPF sunscreen while also restoring skin comfort.

    The xylitol complex is based on the 3d hydration hydroconcept, which helps to maintain moisture circulation in all skin layers, improve hyaluronic acid synthesis, and reduce skin irritation and inflammation.

    A 2017 study found that longer use of xylitol and glycerol can increase water content not only in the epidermis but also in the dermis, resulting in improvements in the biomechanical parameters of the skin, such as skin density. This is due to the increased protein content in the skin, which is the result of xylitol and glycerol-induced synthesis of filaggrin.

    The micellar water also contains the polysaccharide inulin, which has prebiotic properties that help improve skin microbiota and slow down transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Prebiotics promote the growth of beneficial bacteria that destroy acne-causing bacteria and maintain a healthy balance of the protective skin layer.

    To ensure the ingredients work together effectively, sodium PCA is added to the formula to help moisturize the skin and maintain the proper moisture level. Sodium PCA is a component of the skin's natural moisturizing factor (NMF), which helps restore the skin's protective barrier.

    Active ingredients

    AQUAXYL™ (INCI: XYLITYLGLUCOSIDE, ANHYDROXYLITOL, XYLITOL)

    AQUAXYL™ (INCI: XYLITYLGLUCOSIDE, ANHYDROXYLITOL, XYLITOL)AQUAXYL™ is a hydro concept that aims to keep skin moisturized by promoting moisture circulation throughout all layers and increasing hyaluronic acid production. The active ingredients in AQUAXYL™ control the skin's water circulation, as determined by cosmetogenomics, and enhance the production of essential lipids and proteins that form the skin's outermost layer. The skin's protective barrier is fortified, and water loss is prevented within 24 hours using this active ingredient blend. Use for 28 days, and experience softer and smoother skin with a regular rate of cell renewal due to AQUAXYL™ strengthening the skin's natural protective barrier. This ingredient has obtained COSMOS, ECOCERT, and Natrue certifications.


    Inulin (INCI: INULIN)


    The prebiotic properties of INULIN, a complex carbohydrate, can improve the skin's microbiome. In addition to chicory root and sugar cane, this ingredient can be found in wheat, onions, garlic, burdock, artichokes, and leeks. In cosmetics, inulin can benefit sensitive and reactive skin types, allowing them to tolerate common preservatives in beauty products better. In addition, inulin, a complex carbohydrate, can be advantageous for sensitive skin and slow down water loss by binding water to the skin's surface. Fructose is often added to inulin in cosmetic formulations for a combined prebiotic effect on skin moisture and the microbiome.


    Sodium PCA (INCI: SODIUM PCA)


    Skincare and cosmetic products frequently contain a natural amino acid derivative known as sodium PCA or pyrrolidone carboxylic acid sodium salt. Sodium PCA is an effective ingredient for deep skin and hair hydration. Sodium PCA attracts water to deeper skin and hair layers, helping retain moisture. The deep layers of the skin are hydrated due to this ingredient drawing moisture from them and locking it in the top layer. Sodium PCA's plant-based variation is made from oils and fruits derived from pyrrolidone carboxylic acid's sodium salt. Additionally, synthetic production of sodium PCA is possible, reducing its environmental impact.


    Lactic acid(INCI: LACTIC ACID)


    Containing both carboxy and hydroxy groups, lactic acid is an alkanoic acid that is identified by its INCI name LACTIC ACID. The clear, syrupy LACTIC ACID liquid is colorless or slightly yellow and can be effortlessly mixed with water and alcohol. Various bodily fluids, including sweat, muscle serum, kidney, bile, and saliva, contain L-(+) lactic acid. Being an alpha-hydroxy acid, lactic acid has moisture-absorbing abilities. Lactic acid lactates perform an essential function in metabolic processes by breaking down sugars during lactic acid fermentation. In addition to breaking down sugars during fermentation, lactic acid helps balance the skin's pH. This helps maintain a balanced pH value of the skin. Lactic acid's hygroscopic properties can assist in skin moisture and proteins, sugar, and urea. Lactic acid is frequently utilized in skin creams to address dry skin areas. A combination of other substances is typically used to regulate the pH level of skin care products and safeguard the skin's protective acid layer from harm. In addition, lactic acid's keratolytic properties that prevent keratinization are utilized in skin care and stratum corneum improvement products. Liquid soaps rely on lactic acid's ability to eliminate bacteria [12].

    Surfactants create micelles in micellar water, which cleanses without drying skin. due to their unique structure micelles "trap" the fatty components on the skin's surface.Is it necessary to wash off the micellar water?While it is not necessary to wash off Moon Cosmetics' cleansing micellar water, it is recommended to achieve the best results as surfactants remaining on the skin surface can reduce the penetration of other products.

    What happens if micellar water is not washed off? Can I use it daily?

    Since the concentration of vegan-certified micelles in Moon Cosmetics cleansing micellar water does not exceed 5%, it is gentle and suitable for daily use, even for the most sensitive skin. Micellar water can effectively double-cleanse oily, combination, or acne-prone skin without dehydrating it. Micelles can attract dead skin cells, sebum, and other impurities that lead to inflammatory acne, which can clog pores. Moon Cosmetics cleansing micellar water is gentle enough for eye makeup removal and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
