Nimue Cleansing Gel for healthy skin – Nimue Cosmetics
Nimue Cosmetics are described as ‘cosmeceuticals’ rather than traditional cosmetics, which means they have pharmaceutical benefits and are not limited to concealing and beautifying but can actually change and rejuvenate the skin.
Nimue Cleansing Gel and cleansing gel lite are the first steps in the treatment of skin health. Formulated as a soap-free creamy gel and has the ability to remove traces of make-up, oil secretions and impurities makes it perfect for sensitive skin.
As the Nimue Company is growing, January 2020 saw new packaging for both products: Nimue Cleansing Gel & Nimue Cleansing Gel Refill.
Using a soap-free cleanser will bring a lot of benefits to your skin health (recommended for sensitive skin).
How Soap Affects the Biology of Skin
The stratum corneum is made up of layers of dead keratinocytes, or protein cells, that are constantly being shed. Once a single layer of keratinocytes reaches the outermost layer, they become corneocytes. When this happens, the cell loses its nucleus and cytoplasm and becomes hard and dry. Surfactants bind to these proteins and over-hydrate them, causing them to swell.
The swelling allows the soap ingredients to more easily penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, where they can interact with nerve endings and the immune system itself, leading to dry, irritating and itching skin. As the water evaporates from the skin, the corneocytes become even drier as the surfactants effectively strip the skin of its natural moisturizing factor.
Soap ingredients are able to get in between skin lipids which in turn help our skin to remain hydrated.
By using soap you disrupt the lipid bilayers which are the fat cells that surround and provide a protective barrier for all cells. The cells become more permeable and vulnerable to damage.
Replace your soap with Nimue Cleansing Gel which is soap-free.
