what is a cleansing milk?
a cleansing “milk” is a creamy cleanser with a smooth consistency. like milk, it generally does not foam upon use, as there is a very low concentration of surfactants. while we do use milk protein in this formula, a cleansing milk doesn’t necessarily contain milk.
will my face still get clean if the cleanser doesn’t foam?
yes, absolutely. surfactants are contained in most cleansers as they act as detergent and wetting agents and help to thicken formulations. they can also provide a nice foam. however, these foaming surfactants can also strip the skin of its necessary oils, leaving the skin feeling tight and dry. we use a lower concentration of natural surfactants which have less tendency to foam, preserving your natural oils while cleansing.
what type of skin is best served by a creamy cleanser?
all skin types can use this cleanser. while it was originally created for oily skin as colloidal oatmeal helps to reduce excess sebum, we’ve discovered that the oatmeal also works as a humectant, which retains moisture in dry skin types.
why is the bottle plastic rather than glass like the rest of your product?
we love the elegance and sustainability of glass but find that it’s not best-suited for this cleanser. glass bottles have a smaller opening which does not accommodate the larger pump required to extrude the cleanser. our glass bottles are also smaller in size, which would limit the quantity of cleanser which can be carried. so for now, our oatmeal cleansing milk will be in a recyclable plastic bottle.
can men use this product?
yes, this product is safe for men, even right after shaving. it helps to soothe freshly shaved skin, too. we’re working on a little something especially for men, so watch this space.
