French women have been using the power of Micellar Water for decades!
Although in recent times it’s gained more popularity, making micellar water one of the biggest worldwide beauty trends, this product has been a staple in pharmacies in France for many years. The beauty conscious French have been shunning tap water in favour of cleansing water for some time now, for fear of the negative effects it has on their delicate facial skin.
Why has micellar water become so popular?
Understanding the popularity of micellar water gets scientific. Much like any other cleanser, it acts to remove various impurities like makeup, dirt and oils from the skin. Yet one of the no fuss perks of micellar water is there’s no need to rinse it off. So how does it actually work? Here’s the science bit...
Surfactants are chemical compounds which have a cleaning effect. Micellar water contains a mild surfactant which clusters into tiny balls called micelles. Micelles are clever groups of molecules which act like impurity magnets, attracting oil and grease. When you pour micellar water onto cotton wool before applying it to your face, these micelles rearrange themselves to provide optimal cleansing and soothing action for your skin.
