Everything you need to know about eco-friendly facial cleansing

When it comes to the topic of facial cleansing, we all have our own special routines and products we love. But what about vegan face cleansing? Read on!

HOW TO FIND THE BEST FACE WASH ROUTINE

What is the right way to cleanse your face?

We all want our facial skin to look its best — no impurities, dry or oily patches or large-looking pores. That’s we we try to find the best face wash routine that suits our skin’s needs.

There are ongoing discussions on how to best cleanse the facial skin: mornings or nights, gels or mousse, peelings or no peelings. In the end, we need to decide for ourselves, which routine and format works best for us.

The latest addition to facial cleansing are solid cleansers, so-called syndets. Our WonderBARS are vegan, plastic-free and pH optimised. And of course suitable for your individual skin’s needs! No matter if you’re prone to oily skin or are looking for a facial wash for dry skin — we’ve got you covered!

FACIAL CLEANSING FAQ

All your face cleansing questions answered

WHAT IS FACIAL CLEANSING?

When you cleanse your facial skin, you’re making sure to get all pollutants and dirt off your skin so it can breathe and regenerate.

WHY SHOULD YOU CLEANSE YOUR FACIAL SKIN?

During the day, your skin attracts dirt and other environmental stressors that need to come off before going to bed. In addition, your skin produces excess oils that you wash off at night.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU CLEANSE YOUR FACE?

You should wash your face twice a day; in the mornings and at night. While you sleep, your skin regen

WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK OUT FOR WHEN CHOOSING A FACE WASH?

Before choosing the best face wash for you, you need to be aware of the kind of skin type you have. If your skin is prone to oily patches, opt for a facial wash for oily skin especially. That way, the face wash can help your skin regulate itself.

FACIAL CLEANSING FORMATS

Mousse, gels, wipes, solid cleansers and more

  • Cleansing gel: this might be the most common type of cleanser. The gel-like texture cleanses pore-deeply and refreshes your facial skin. There are gel cleansers for all skin types.
  • Cleansing mousse: the texture of cleansing mousse feels great on the skin. Mousse cleanses gently but mildly while also moisturising the skin in the cleansing process.
  • Cleansing oil: the gentle formula of cleansing oils will melt away make-up and impurities, leaving your skin clean and soft.
  • Micellar water: micellar water works like a magnet to the facial skin, attracting dirt and other pollutants and leaving your skin with
    a healthy-looking, clean and fresh feeling.
  • Cleansing wipes: cleansing wipes are a great companion on the go or when travelling. You don’t need water to refresh your skin when using wipes. Plus, they’re great for a quick touch-up after the gym or in between meetings.
  • Exfoliants: if you’re looking for a deeper cleanse, exfoliants are your way to go. Use them twice a week to effectively remove dead skin cells, clear blackheads and deeply cleanse your pores.
  • Solid facial cleansers: even though they might look like regular soap bars, solid cleansers are much more than that. The pH optimised syndets (= synthetic detergents) are not only a great plastic-free alternative, they also come as cleansers, exfoliants and make-up removers.

CLEANSERS VS. SCRUBS

What are the differences between exfoliants and facial cleansers?
facial cleansers and scrubs

There are some clear differences that need to be addressed when talking about facial cleansing.

Face cleansers usually have a foamy or creamy texture. They are designed to remove surface oils and debris. Plus, they are developed for a daily usage.

Exfoliants, or scrubs are cream-based or gel-based. They contain peeling pearls or granules for a deeper cleansing of the skin. They exfoliate dead skin cells. Use an exfoliant only twice to three times per week.
