Good things can be so simple – when you know how they work. BABOR’s research team was guided by a simple but effective principle when developing the CLEANSING line: a gentle action with the added bonus of an anti-pollution effect. After all, effective protection against environmental stress is just as important as a gentle cleansing action.
Cleansing and Protection
This outcome is possible thanks to the innovative Anti-OX Complex of lemon bioflavonoids and aloe vera. Extracts of broccoli also stimulate the production of the skin’s own detoxifying enzymes, while specially processed apple water triggers an additional turbo effect. BABOR uses flash distillation to obtain Pyrus malus (apple) fruit water, which absorbs the valuable trace elements and minerals contained in apples and also enables the skin to form tiny channels to absorb active ingredients. This not only ensures that skin is cleansed deep down, but also improves its ability to absorb skincare components in any serums and creams. The skin can then breathe freely again. Besides HY-ÖL, the legendary bi-phase cleansing oil, the BABOR Cleansing range includes effective super-cleansing specialists in keeping with the new “anti-pollution purity law”.
Bi-phase cleansing with HY-ÖL and phytoactive BABOR HY-Öl
The hydrophilic oil, HY-ÖL, which is applied to dry skin (do not moisten beforehand), removes oil-soluble particles. Quillaja saponaria bark extract also acts like a dirt magnet. Mixed with water and a phytoactive, the oil becomes a milky emulsion, which also removes water-soluble dirt, and at the same time moisturizes and conditions the skin. 200 ml
The four phytoactives moisturize and condition the skin, even as you cleanse. All the phytoactives includes an extract of the herb Agrimonia eupatoria, which contains natural antioxidants to combat negative environmental influences, while the apple water helps the skin to absorb active ingredients.
