|Meet the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel. If you’re into skin care, then you already know that this cleanser has a cult following around the world.
This really is no ordinary cleanser and unlike any gel cleanser you’ve used before. And, yes, it does live up to all the hype. This is a gel-to-oil cleanser that melts beautifully into the skin. It quickly and gently removes impurities and makeup.
It’s a non-foaming cleanser that thoroughly but gently cleans. The texture is more like a gel balm that transforms into a luxurious oil, so there’s nothing drying about it.
Your skin will feel clean and balanced; never tight or dry. And day by day, your skin will become softer and brighter.
Why Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel?
The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is packed with vitamins, proteins, minerals and lipids to leave your skin in better condition than before you cleansed. It contains vitamins and enzymes so your skin gets a healthy dose of nutrition and some gentle refinement too. You’ll find vitamins A, B, C, E, Magnesium, MSM, ferment extracts and Borage Seed Oil to promote skin health.
Your skin will not only look more radiant, but also be soothed, smoothed and hydrated.
MSM is Oskia’s signature ingredient. Methylsulfonylmethane is the most bio-available source of sulphur and is involved in 150 body function and processes, including amino acid formation. It helps increase collagen and elastin production, as well as having excellent anti-inflammatory and detoxifying properties.
Lactobacillus/Pumpkin Fruit Ferment Filtrate is a gentle alternative to AHAs. It removes dead skin cells, refines the texture of the skin and imparts a radiant glow. It’s made by fermenting pumpkin fruit with Lactobacillus Lactis. This results in complex biomolecules being broken down into phytochemicals, such as antioxidants and enzymes. These protect and enhance the skin. A 5% concentration is claimed to be as effective in cell renewal as 4% Glycolic Acid. But, unlike Glycolic Acid, Lactobacillus/Pumpkin Fruit Ferment Filtrate isn’t at all irritating, not even on the eye area.
Borage Seed Oil is super rich in Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), an Omega 6 Fatty Acid. GLA helps maintain the health of the skin and strengthens its barrier function. Applying it to the skin improves eczema, seborrheic dermatitis and other inflammatory skin issues. by strengthening the barrier function, it also helps the skin better retain moisture.
You can use this cleanser alone or as part of a double cleanse in the evening.
The first cleanse works to remove heavy makeup and mineral sunscreen, which have been developed to stay on the skin. The second cleanse actually removes pollutants and impurities from your skin. Double cleansing improves the health of your skin and helps give you a clearer complexion. You can read more about double cleansing in our blog article on the oil cleansing method.
