Micellar water is a skin care product that cleanses and tones the skin. It is made using water, a humectant, and an astringent that will attract and suck up dirt, oil, make-up, and other residue on the skin without stripping or disrupting the acid mantle.
Cucumber hydrosol is the astringent that I use in Kumanu micellar water, as it soothes inflamed and irritated skin. Cucumber also acts as a mild toning agent so no toner is required after use. The glycerin is the humectant, drawing moisture into the skin.
Micellar water is incredibly versatile and well suited for just about any skin type, regardless of whether you have dry, oily, or normal skin. Plus, it’s free of alcohol and can help promote skin hydration while reducing irritation and inflammation, keeping your skin soft, supple, and smooth (1).
It’s especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin or conditions like rosacea, as it’s free from ingredients that can be irritating to the skin, such as soaps and alcohols (2).
What’s more, micellar water can be applied using just a cotton pad, which eliminates the need for facial brushes and washcloths that can spread germs and bacteria.
