Enjoy the benefits of a product so natural you could eat it probeautysolutions.com.au and moisturisation along with the lather and wear rate associated with traditional soaps. Transparent soaps are formulated with a high level of humectants (such as glycerol). These products do contain active “soap” and an alkaline pH, but the potential irritation caused by these factors is offset by glycerin, humectants and a low concentration of fats. Combars As the name implies, combars usually contain natural soaps and milder synthetic surfactants. The synthetic cleansing agents offset the potential for irritation associated with soap. Syndet bars Composed entirely of synthetic surfactants, syndet bars are often formulated with fatty acids, waxes and esters as well. With a neutral pH, syndet bars are the mildest of the cleansing bars. The most common surfactant ingredients in syndet bars are alkyl glyceryl ether sulfonate, betaines, sulfosuccinates, sodium cocoyl monoglyceride sulfate and sodium cocoyl isethionate. Saponins Derived from plants, saponins are a good ingredient for natural or organic cleansers because of their ability to produce foam. The most common sources for saponins are alfalfa, peas, chickpeas, horse chestnut trees, soybeans, daisies and desert plants. The effect cleansers have on the skin During cleansing, moisture levels immediately increase since the stratum corneum absorbs water. However, this hydration rapidly evaporates after cleansing, causing a feeling of tightness. Beyond this short-lived side effect, stronger surfactants (such as sodium lauryl sulfate) remove natural moisturising factor (NMF) and lipids from the skin, compromise the skin’s barrier and cause dryness, flaking, redness and irritation. This is why selecting a cleanser appropriate for one’s skin type is crucial.
