Pumpkin has a high content of vitamin A and beta carotene, two potent antioxidant ingredients. Combined with natural surface lipid reducers and essential oils, this natural, all-purpose daily cleanser not only provides a wonderful pumpkin spice aroma but is gentle enough for ultra sensitive skin while providing a deep pore cleanse. Great for normal to oily skin types; may be mixed with Foaming Peptide Cleanser for a creamy, luscious cleanse.
How you wash your face lays the foundation for your entire skincare regimen. Well-cleansed skin is more able to drink in vital nutrients, therefore boosting the efficacy of every other product you apply to your face.
New Surfactant in Pumpkin Cleanser!
Thanks to new discoveries and cutting-edge science, Rhonda Allison is now able to provide a natural sugar-based, sulfate-free surfactant that allows an ultra-mild experience with all the expected benefits of Pumpkin Cleanser.
In addition, this gentle surfactant works in tandem with the lactic acid (L) to boost the formula’s effectiveness.
So exactly what are “surfactants”?
Surfactants, short for "surface-active agents", are a type of raw material that possesses both water-soluble and oil-soluble characteristics capable of dissolving oils and holding dirt in suspension so it may be rinsed away with water. Along with adding lathering capabilities to formulations and working as surface-tension reducers, surfactants mainly function as water/oil stabilizers that help to break down oils and fats from our skin.
By providing the same great formula with a mild, natural surfactant, Pumpkin Cleanser:
- reduces potential irritation and dryness – great for most skin types.
- provides a more creamy consistency and richer foaming action.
- offers more conditioning with the same great exfoliating action.
- allows for better penetration into the skin.
- improves slip action for maximum effect during a dry cleanse.
Who Will Love It
This cleanser is especially loved for its marvelous scent. Normal, combination, and photo-aged skin do best with this cleanser. Dry/dehydrated skin types will like to mix this cleanser with Foaming Peptide Cleanser.
CAUTION: NOT RECOMMENDED for someone who is AHA sensitive.
Pump onto fingertips and massage onto dry skin. Dampen fingers and massage for several minutes to loosen surface residue. Rinse well with warm water and a soft gauze pad. A second rinse may be necessary. Follow with an application of Pumpkin Lotion (which is a toner). AHA products may cause sun sensitivity; use sunscreen (SPF 30).
