Mild yet effective, Sykes’ Molecular Water elevates effortless skin care to new heights. This dual-action formula acts as both a gentle cleanser and a waterproof makeup remover in one. Tiny micelles act as magnets to trap dirt, oil, and makeup without stripping away natural moisture. Botanical extracts of Acai, Goji Berry, Pomegranate, Noni Fruit, Camu Camu, Green Tea, and Coffee infuse the skin with nourishing vitamins and antioxidants. In a single step, skin is cleansed, toned, and hydrated. Micelles are microscopic clusters of oil and dirt-absorbing molecular spheres. Hydrophobic at one end and hydrophilic at the other, micelles link together in a circle, leaving a space in the middle. When applied to the skin, the micelles attract impurities, holding them in the empty space and effectively sweeping them away. The superfruit extracts chosen for this formula were selected for their superior antioxidant capabilities. Together with the micelles, these botanical extracts are suspended in deionized soft water, to ensure gentle hydration.
