Why Medik8 Lipid Balance Cleansing Oil?
This is a Goldilocks cleansing oil: neither too heavy nor too light.

When you add water, it emulsifies beautifully into a light milky consistency that rinses away easily.
The Medik8 Lipid Balance Cleansing Oil uses naturally derived oils rather than cheaper mineral oil. These oils are rich in essential Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids.
Why are lipids important?
The top layers of the skin are made up of skin cells surrounded by lipids.
Lipids are made up of fatty acids, cholesterol and ceramides. These keep the skin barrier healthy, enabling it to block out contaminants out and hold in moisture.
Some fatty acids, such as Omea-6 and Omega-3, cannot be synthesised by the body and therefore are essential.
Acne, dry and sensitive skin types are often deficient in fatty acids.
The Medik8 Lipid Balance Cleansing Oil contains an optimum blend of fatty acids, with a high level of Linoleic Acid, as well as antioxidants Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
Medik8 Lipid Balance Cleansing Oil ingredients
Safflower Seed Oil is rich in essential fatty acids. It comprises more than 70% Linoleic Acid. It smooths and softens the skin, while also supporting skin barrier function. A healthy barrier makes the skin more resilient and better able to retain moisture so that it looks younger. For those with acne, it helps balance sebum levels.
Olive Fruit Oil gives this cleanser lovely slip and emollient properties. Olive Fruit Oil naturally contains Squalene and essential fatty acids, including Oleic, Palmitic and Linoleic, These are phenolic compounds that have antioxidant benefits.
Moringa Seed Oil dissolves and removes harmful pollution particles that accumulate in the skin. It also contains several bioactive compounds that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Moringa Seed Oil is rich in fatty acids, specifically Oleic Acid, which makes it very moisturising. Being similar to the oil in your skin, it absorbs deeply.
Vitamin E soothes and nourishes the skin, and may and protect it from damage caused by free radicals.
Sunflower Seed Oil is a calming oil that strengthens and soothes the skin. It contains a high level of Linoleic Acid, which is helpful for anyone with dry, irritated or compromised skin. Linoleic Acid supports the skin to produce its own lipids, including ceramides.
