Cleansing milk for the face cleans and nourishes at the same time

A gentle cleansing milk is one of the most important basic products for cleansing and caring for the face. Traditional wash gel does indeed cleanse thoroughly thanks to the surfactants contained in it but it robs the skin of oils at the same time. Depending on the type of skin, the skin can react with irritation or dryness and feel tight.

Thanks to its mild formulation, the cleansing milk is especially suitable for dry, sensitive or mature skin. It contains numerous nourishing ingredients as well oil-replenishing and moisture-binding substances that help the skin to maintain its natural oily protective coat. They provide lasting protection against dehydration.
