▶ Product Description
This oil-free cleanser combines makeup removal and cleansing into a single step, leaving your skin feeling refreshed after every wash. While conventional cleansers strip tend to stress the skin by “melting off” dirt and makeup using petroleum-based synthetic surfactants, the Amino Acid Facial Cleanser works to gently “lift” only dirt and dead skin cells, leaving the skin underneath undamaged. This Ph9.2 alkalescent cleanser softens skin, regulating turnover. Moreover, its alkaline-neutralizing capacity brings out the skin’s natural moisturizing properties. As hydration comes from deep within, it halts secretion of excess face oil. Continued usage will restore natural skin barrier functions, eliminating skin dullness.
＜Amino Acid Micro-emulsion＞
Using a method similar to sake brewing, amino acid extracts are meticulously kneaded over flame in small quantities and are carefully aged for a period of 3 months.
This product is manufactured by a Japanese cosmetics company with a Cosmetics Manufacturing and Sales Business License. Ingredients have been tested as hypoallergenic. *Not guaranteed as completely irritant-free for all customers.
▶ How to Use
Dispense one to two pumps of the Amino Acid Facial Cleanser into the palms of your hand and apply gently onto a dry face. Generously spread over porous areas prone to clogging, such as the area around the nose and the T-zone. Gently massage with fingers over closed eyes when removing eye makeup. Leave on the skin for more than one minute until the dirt and makeup has lifted off. Rinse with lukewarm water, and gently pat dry with a towel. Recommended for daily use in the morning and at night. As the Amino Acid Cleanser works only where it is applied, make sure not to leave out areas prone to whiteheads and blackheads, such as the top of the forehead and the temples.
Do not use this product if you use steroids. In rare occasions, the cleanser may tingle if used on problem areas and skin severely damaged from repetitive use of peeling agents and scrubbing cleansers. In such cases, dilute the Amino Acid Facial Cleanser with water and use it for 2 to 3 days, leaving it on the skin for no longer than 30 seconds before rinsing. By continuously using this product for a few days, its alkaline-neutralizing capacity will bring healthy skin back. Although Amino Acid Facial Cleanser stings when it gets into the eyes, it should not pose any problem as it is not hazardous. Rinse gently with water if the product gets into the eyes. This product is sensitive to temperature changes and bacteria. Avoid storing under direct sunlight, in places with high temperature and humidity, and areas where temperature changes are extreme.
