Science of Santé

Removing your makeup and cleansing is a must for healthy skin. However, a lot of skin care products contain nasty ingredients, or aren’t gentle on your face. A common example is makeup wipes, which are bad for your skin, your wallet and the environment. Santé replaces disposable wipes. Our range of handcrafted fibre skin care products effectively remove makeup, cleanse and exfoliate - by just adding water. Keep reading to see the difference and understand the science of Santé.

 

Guilty of still using makeup wipes?

An alarming number of people are still using wipes to remove makeup. We get it, makeup wipes are convenient and they appear effective. However, the harsh texture of makeup wipes and force required for their use, is incredibly damaging to your skin. Used regularly (for example daily makeup removal), they over exfoliate the skin and can cause micro-tears. The abrasive surface also destroys the skin’s natural acid mantle. The acidity not only protects against bacteria, but also preserves the skin's structural integrity.

Makeup wipes also aren’t formulated to keep pores clear or break down waxes or oils contained in your makeup. So, whilst your face might look makeup free when you’re done, these wipes don’t actually cleanse your skin and tend to leave behind a residue that isn’t doing your skin any favours.

In short, makeup wipes are no good. Used regularly you’re doing long-term damage to your face. You’re also not doing the environment any favours— as it’s a lot of unnecessary waste!

 

Make the Switch

There are environmentally friendly options available that are just as convenient and much more friendly on your face.

Santé’s make up removers lift and trap all traces of makeup and impurities. Santé skin care works by removing the build-up of dirt, dead skin cells and excess oil gently. Our patent ENJOtex fibres are 100 times finer than a human hair and can remove makeup with zero chemicals – simply add water! By just using water, Santé avoids aggravating or dehydrating your skin with chemicals or fragrance (often found in makeup wipes). The fine fibres slough away skin cells to reveal healthy cells underneath and prevent pores from becoming blocked. To see Santé’s smart fibre technology at work, watch this video.

All Santé products are machine washable and reusable for 3 years, so you’ll save a substantial amount no longer buying makeup wipes. You’ll also create less waste. Now that’s skincare that loves your skin and the planet!
