Evan Healy Tea Tree Gel Cleanser

This non-detergent cleanser is specially formulated for congested/acne-prone skin, without any harsh ingredients that could strip the skin’s protective oils. Evan Healy skincare is known for gentleness, and her acne products have worked wonders for many, many people who finally realized that the harsh products they’d previously been using were doing more harm than good.

Evan Healy’s Tea Tree Gel Cleanser lathers well, and doesn’t leave a residue on the skin. A little goes a long way, which means this bottle lasts and lasts.

Ingredients: watersodium cocoamphoacetateglycerinlauryl glucosidesodium cocoyl glutamatesodium lauryl glucose carboxylatecoco-glucosidesea buckthornorganic matricaria extractrose geranium leaf extractorganic oat leaf extractlemon balm leaf extractstrawberry leaf extractlavender leaf extractcitric acidsodium benzoate,organic tea tree leaf oilorganic lavender flower oilorganic lavandin oil, and flower essences.

One of the primary ingredients is sodium cocoamphoacetate. Although it sounds like a chemical nightmare, in reality it’s a safe organic compound derived from coconut oil. Relatively gentle, it aids in cleansing your face of oil-based muck. Non-irritating and non-sensitizing, sodium cocoamphoacetate is a preferable surfactant (cleansing agent) to the ubiquitous sodium lauryl sulfate often found in similar–but lower quality–products.

A simple way to boost the purifying power of this cleanser is to add a little clay to the cleanser in the palm of your hand. As you wash your face, you’ll also benefit from mild exfoliation..

Evan Healy’s Tea Tree Gel Cleanser is $29 for a very pretty 4 oz. glass pump bottle. Works best for normal to oily skin.

*Products get makeovers too. Be sure to check if this product has been recently re-formulated before using it yourself. {View original post at TheBeautyProof.com}
