Micellar water is an oil-free face cleansing water that removes makeup, oil, and other debris. Simple to use and easy on your skin’s natural barrier, micellar-water is a skin-healthy option for everyday cleansing.
The science behind micellar water is more interesting than you might think: the formula contains tiny molecules called surfactants, which are attracted to both oil and water. Water and oil normally repel each other, making water less than ideal when it comes to cleaning oil from your face. The beauty of these surfactants is that they can scoop up oil from the surface of your skin, and form clusters around these oil particles that prevent the water base of the micellar water from repelling them.
