The science behind Micellar Water

DISCOVER THE KINDEST WAY TO CLEANSE WITH MICELLAR WATER

MICELLAR WATER IS ON EVERY BEAUTY EXPERT’S LIPS. BUT DO YOU KNOW HOW IT WORKS? EXPLORE THE SCIENCE OF MICELLAR WATER AND FIND OUT HOW IT CAN BENEFIT YOU.

Micellar Water Explained

What are micelles?

Micelles are microscopically small congregated molecules. They consist of a ‘water-loving’ (hydrophilic) and a ‘fat-loving’ (lipophilic) part.

To remove water-soluble as well as fat-soluble dirt and make-up from the face, you need both parts for an efficient face cleanser.

For micelles to be formed, there needs to be a certain amount of surface tension reducing compounds called surfactants.

When this happens, the molecules within the liquid begin to rearrange themselves and form what we know as micelles.

This is a natural phenomenon that is used in NIVEA products containing micellar technology.

How do micelles work?

Micelles act like a magnet. They attract dirt, make-up, sebum and other impurities.

The secret is in their structure. Micelles are soft on the outside and strong on the inside. The ‘water-loving’, outer part lets the micelles stick to the wipe, while the ‘fat-loving’ centre attracts and binds impurities.

THE KINDEST WAY TO CLEANSE

Micellar water is a kind and gentle way to cleanse the skin and remove make-up. Furthermore it is caring and also mild enough to use on the delicate eye area.

The formula effectively targets dirt and grime without smudging or requiring rubbing or rinsing.
