What makes our Daily Detox Cleansing Gel different from many other facial cleansers today? Most people think of gel cleansers as a harsher option than creamy cleansers. The truth is, it all comes down to the formula. The consistency of a product vs. its surfactants and soothing ingredients makes all the difference. When creating Daily Detox, we knew we needed a formula that works for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.
"When formulating Daily Detox, I knew I wanted a gentle face cleanser that cleaned my skin without over-drying it. I was dealing with a major cystic acne breakout and needed something to compliment the extremely drying dermatology-grade products I was using. I made Daily Detox around that, and used it every day twice a day during that time period." - Melissa, founder.
Let's get into the ingredients:
Gentle Surfactant Blend: Daily Detox Cleansing Gel uses gentle surfactants like Coco-glucoside and Decyl Glucoside to create a rich, creamy, bubbly lather. These two cleansing agents are derived from natural plant materials and can gently clean your skin without over-drying, making Daily Detox an excellent face wash for most skin types.
Green Tea Extract: Green Tea is a key ingredient in Daily Detox and one of the inspirations behind the product. Green tea contains a catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Catechins are natural antioxidants that can help protect your skin from free radicals, help reduce inflammation, reduce sebum production, and increase moisture retention.
Ginger Extract: Ginger, native to Southeast Asia, has been used worldwide for centuries to treat many conditions, both internally and topically. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in Ginger and has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects that help increase collagen production and reduce skin inflammation. Ginger promotes the preservation of protein levels in the skin, improving skin elasticity. It is also known to soften the skin and maintain hydration and moisture.
Chamomile Extract: Chamomile is one of our favorite ingredients to formulate with. This calming, anti-inflammatory ingredient has several abilities, best known as a skin soother. Chamomile also has antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiseptic properties, leaving your skin calm, healthy, and happy. These healing properties reduce the appearance of breakouts and inflammation in the skin.
We chose to use gentle plant-derived healing ingredients in Daily Detox because we want the best for you and your skin. Daily Detox Cleansing Gel has quickly become indispensable in so many people's skincare routines because it is truly made to work with your skin and fit perfectly as the first step in your skincare routine.
