Use twice daily, in the morning and evening. Wet face and neck with tepid water. Dispense a nickel-sized amount into palm of hand. Lather in hands. Using fingertips, gently massage onto face and neck using circular motions. Avoid eye area. Rinse thoroughly with water. Pat skin dry. Contains acids which may make the skin more sensitive to the sun. We recommend the use of Multi-Protection Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 or Intellishade®.
Which skin types should use this cleanser? Brightening Facial Wash can be used by most skin types, including normal, mature, combination and oily/acne prone skin. However, it does contain Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid, which can be irritating to sensitive skin. It should not be used to remove eye make-up.
Which ingredients are used to brighten the skin? Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid help to brighten the skin through surface exfoliation. It also contains Vitamin C (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate), Licorice and Lily Extract to naturally brighten the skin by inhibiting melanin production.
What are the cleansing agents in Brightening Facial Wash? Cocamidopropyl Betaine, derived from Coconut, and Sucrose Laurate are the main cleansing agents, or surfactants in Brightening Facial Wash. They are both gentle and suitable for most skin types.
Will this cleanser make me sensitive to sunlight? Yes. Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid exfoliate the top layer of skin, making it more sensitive to sunlight. It is important to protect skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays when using products that contain acids.
Salicylic Acid. A natural, oil-soluble Beta-Hydroxy Acid that deeply cleans pores.
