THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT…
OVERALL CLINICAL DATA ON SPECIFIC INGREDIENT(S) & HOW THEY FUNCTION:

Rarely do you see a body wash ingredient deck where the first ingredient listed is not water. Our Glow Getter Multi Oil Body Wash is a concentrated formula with over 50% glycerin combined with phyto-lipids for a skin softening and intensely nourishing experience. Glycerin is hygroscopic and draws moisture to the skin while limiting irritation by reducing surfactant-skin interaction. Surfactant molecules aggregate in aqueous solution to form micelles. A micelle is a spherical ball of surfactant molecules oriented with hydrophobic tails interacting and hydrophilic heads interacting. These micelles are responsible for cleansing and bring impurities and oily substances into the core where they can be removed upon dilution of water. These micelles can penetrate the skin and cause irritation from protein denaturation and skin dryness from solubilizing crucial skin lipids. Glycerin hinders the ability of surfactant micelles to penetrate into the skin barrier through the stratum corneum’s aqueous pores. A study showed that the addition of only 10% glycerin was able to reduce the radius and pore number density of these aqueous pores, preventing micelles from penetrating and disturbing the skin.1

Glycerin is the bulk of this oil-to-gel formula driving skin hydration and maintaining the skin’s barrier and acid mantle. We blended in upcycled apple extract high in polysaccharides which act as moisture magnets to plump the skin and leave a dewy hydrated glow. The combination of these two potent humectants, glycerin and apple extract, prevent stripping of skin lipids during the cleansing process. Our Glow Getter Multi-Oil Body Wash also contains biocompatible squalane and a linoleic-rich oil blend including jojoba, rosehip, and sea buckthorn oils to replenish and nourish parched skin. We incorporated a cationic polymer which forms a protective film on the skin for additional skin conditioning. Formulated at a skin appropriate pH of 4.25-4.75. This formula is made without high foaming anionic surfactants that can cause irritation in low pH systems. This sensorial body wash transforms from a luscious oil to a fine, gentle lather, cleansing without stripping to reveal glowing and radiant skin.
