  • What is micellar water?

    Micellar water contains water and, as its name suggests, micelles, fine particles that trap impurities. Micelles are tiny spherical shaped molecules made up of surfactants. Surfactants have a water head and oil tail which act like a magnet to trap dirt and oil. The water and the micelles work together to eliminate impurities, excess sebum and makeup in a single step, without rinsing.

  • How should I cleanse combination or oily skin without irritating it?

    It is important to cleanse oily skin twice a day, in the morning and evening, to remove impurities that can clog pores and cause spots or blackheads to appear. Avoid soap and alcohol, which aggravate the skin and can promote sebum production. Opt for gentle products and non-greasy gel textures for a mattifying result. Exfoliating once or twice a week will also help to remove dead skin cells that can contribute to blocked pores.

  • How is micellar water applied?

    In the morning and evening, using a cotton pad (disposable or reuseable), wipe the miceelar water over your face and neck, including your eyes. You can use several cotton pads to ensure that no makeup residue or impurities are left. For waterproof makeup, you can use a makeup remover before applying micellar water.

  • What steps can I take to better cleanse my face?

    Do not try to “strip” your skin of all oil. Instead, gently cleanse it with clean hands and apply your makeup remover and/or cleanser using small, light circular movements all over the face. The most important thing is to cleanse until your skin is completely clean and there are no marks left on the cotton pad or towel. Ensure you are cleasning in both the morning and evening to remove anything the skin has absorbed throughout the day and night.

  • Is the Micellar Purifying Cleansing Water recommended for sensitive skin?

    Yes, our Micellar Purifying Cleansing Water is formulated to be kind to facial skin and is tested on sensitive skin.

  • What is the difference between Pure Skincare and Pure Actives?

    Pure Skincare products do not contain any active ingredients, to take care of skin every day, without needlessly irritating it. Pure Actives offer a targeted action to treat skin problems when necessary (1 Pure Active = 1 skin issue). Healthy skin with no particular issues does not need Pure Actives.

  • How can Pure Skincare products be effective without any active ingredients?

    They are specifically formulated to give healthy skin with no particular issues what it needs, to cleanse and moisturise it while preserving its natural mechanisms. Adding in active ingredients that the skin doesn’t need can damage it. Over 98% of the ingredients in our Pure Skincare products are biomimetic (global Biomimetic© patent), for perfect affinity with the skin.

  • Do your products contain fragrances?

    Our Pure Actives do not contain fragrances, nor do some of the other care products such as the Moisturising Eye Contour Fluid, the Melting Exfoliating Gel and the Express Purifying Mask. The majority of our Pure Skincare products are very lightly scented to make them pleasant to use while being kind to skin. We carefully select our fragrances, which we create ourselves, and make sure they are free from allergens and sensitising substances.

  • What makes Pure Skincare special?

    Pure Skincare products do not contain any active ingredients, to cleanse and moisturise the skin every day. The biomimetic formulation of all Pure Skincare products is in perfect affinity with the skin so as to strengthen the natural processes without overtreating. Healthy skin with no particular issues does not need superfluous active ingredients that risk irritating it.

  • Are your products tested on animals?

    No, in accordance with the applicable European cosmetics regulations, our products and the ingredients they contain are not tested on animals. Toxicology experts have evaluated our formulas’ perfect tolerance. And, of course, our products are tested under dermatological and ophthalmological supervision if necessary.

  • Do your products contain preservatives?

    In order to protect our formulas from contamination, we use the necessary amount of natural preservatives (black radish extract, potassium sorbate or capryloyl glycine). We also use airless bottles, pumps and tubes to limit the risk of contamination, and therefore the quantity of preservatives.
