Why do most cleansing products contain so much water?

Because we need it.

Cosmetic products have become an essential part of our daily routine. We use them to cleanse, moisturize, and protect our skin. But have you ever wondered why most cosmetic products contain water? The answer lies in the science of skin hydration and the role of water in cosmetic formulations.

Water is an essential component of our body, and our skin is no exception. It is made up of 64% water, and this water content plays a critical role in maintaining its health and appearance. However, when we cleanse our skin using soap or other harsh products, it can strip away the natural oils and moisture, leaving our skin feeling dry and irritated. This is where water-based cosmetic products come in.

Water-based products are formulated with a high water content to help hydrate and moisturize the skin. They help to replenish the water that is lost during the cleansing process, and by doing so, they maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier. This barrier is essential because it helps to protect the skin from external factors such as pollution, UV rays, and other environmental stressors.

Another benefit of water-based cosmetic products is that they are lightweight and non-greasy. They are easily absorbed into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. Water-based products also tend to be more stable than oil-based products, and they are less likely to go rancid over time.

Water is everywhere

Laurette Pharma Lavender Soap Bar
Even our soap bars contain water. Thanks to the high portion of glycerin, the water is easily absorbed by your skin’s outer layer, replenishing its moisture levels and keeping them soft throughout the day.

Ocean Infini Hand Wash
Contains a good amount of water to keep your hands healthy and hydrated.

At Laurette, we understand the importance of water in our products. That is why all of our cosmetic products (that come in direct contact with the skin) contain the necessary amount of water content. We use purified water to ensure that our products are free of impurities that could potentially harm the skin.

Another benefit of our water-based products is that they contain natural ingredients that are gentle on the skin. We use plant-based ingredients such as essential oils, which give our products a vibrant color while still being natural. Essential oils are rich in antioxidants and other beneficial compounds that help to nourish and protect the skin.

In conclusion,

water is an essential component of cosmetic products. It helps to hydrate and moisturize the skin, replenishing the water lost during the cleansing process. Water-based products are also lightweight and non-greasy, making them easy to absorb into the skin. By using water-based products, you can help to maintain your skin’s natural moisture barrier, keeping it looking and feeling healthy and radiant.
