This article will discuss:

The Purpose of Skin Cleasner

Skin cleansers are not just reserved for those in need of teenage and adult acne treatment or those who are experiencing dryness, oily-skin, or any other troubling skin condition. It is important to wash your face no matter your gender, age, skin condition, or skin type. Cleansing the skin removes surface impurities that are a result of exposure to inevitable environmental factors experienced on a daily basis.

Washing your face also removes dead skin, cleans out pores, and refreshes the skin. Cleansing the skin is an essential part of skin health.


When it comes to coming clean, sifting through the plethora of confusing ingredients can make choosing a cleanser a messy endeavor.

However, there are two ingredients that have far-reaching benefits for every skin type:

  • DMAE
  • Olive Oil Polyphenols

DMAE is a highly effective anti-aging and anti-inflammatory chemical that works as a firming agent. It firms the skin by facilitating the synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, the precursor to choline which stimulates the production of phosphatidylcholine, a substance that builds and repairs cell membranes. The acetylcholine produced by DMAE also acts as a stimulant for muscles to combat sagging skin and provide toning effects.

In addition to the effects of acetylcholine, DMAE’s antioxidant properites work to prevent cell membrane deterioration by stabilizing cell membranes and keeping them in tact, thus protecting them against free radical damage and inflammation. Since cell membrane deterioration and inflammation leads to signs of aging in the skin, DMAE is an essential anti-aging ingredient.

When applied to the skin DMAE can:

  • Firm and smooth the skin
  • Reduce lines and wrinkles
  • Improve tone of skin

Olive oil polyphenols possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory power that help to slow the aging process by providing the skin with protection and hydration.

The most potent element of olive oil polyphenols that protects the skin is hydroxytyrosol. It slows the aging process by stabilizing the cell plasma membrane which protects the skin against free radical damage such as exposure to ultraviolet rays.

Oil components within olive oil polyphenols provides a moisturizing effect on the skin without clogging pores.

Olive oil polyphenols can provide the skin with:

  • Nourishing and hydrating effects
  • Cell plasma membrane protection
  • Overall radiance

  22. Everyone needs a gentle cleaner. It removes make-up, dead skin cells, and the ravages of pollution. Even if a person wears minimal make-up or no facial make-up at all, cleansing the face is still critical to reduce break-outs. For more mature people, cleansing can provide a small reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, by removing debris that might have settled in fine lines. Anti-oxidants are a helpful tool in the anti-aging arsenal.

    This is a cleanser that a man doesn’t have to be embarassed to have in his bathroom, and that a woman will enjoy having on display. Visitors will see where that great skin comes from.

    I’d love to a Perricone tester. Thank you.
