Gen­tly washes off dirt

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BMS INDULGE -

AL­THOUGH there are sev­eral dif­fer­ent skin types, the ba­sic chem­istry of body wash is usu­ally the same. Most skin cleans­ing prod­ucts are gen­er­ally made up of two parts: a lipophilic part, which is fat-sol­u­ble, and a hy­drophilic part, which is wa­ter-sol­u­ble.

Dirt it­self is lipophilic, which means that it won’t dis­solve in wa­ter. Sim­ply rins­ing yourself with wa­ter af­ter you’ve got some dirt on yourself won’t get you clean. Only some­thing with a fatty prod­uct will dis­solve the dirt and lift it off your skin.

Some liq­uid skin cleansers ac­tu­ally don’t in­clude fatty acids. These are called “syn­dets”, which is short for syn­thet­i­cally pro­duced de­ter­gent. In­stead of fats, syn­dets are made with petro­chem­i­cals, which are de­rived from petroleum, or oleo­chem­i­cals, which are de­rived from fats and oils.

The most com­mon Syn­det is Sodium Lau­ryl Sul­fate (SLS) and is found in most com­mer­cially avail­able soaps and sham­poos, but be­ing a com­mon in­gre­di­ent doesn’t mean it’s harm­less. It can cause skin ir­ri­ta­tion, eczema, itch­i­ness, and even dam­age to the eyes. SLS has been known to dam­age hair fol­li­cles and causes scalp prob­lems in­clud­ing dan­druff.

There is a need to un­der­stand the nat­u­ral chem­istry of the hu­man skin and skin cleans­ing prod­ucts in or­der to choose one that is suit­able for your fam­ily mem­bers. Just as with any type of skin cleanser, the type of body wash you use will de­pend on your skin type. There are four com­mon skin types – nor­mal, oily, dry and sen­si­tive.

If you have dry skin, strong soap may be too harsh for you, be­cause it re­moves a lot of the oils that your skin al­ready lacks. In­stead, use a mild cleanser, MooGoo, Aus­tralia’s leading nat­u­ral skin­care brand, has de­vel­oped a full range of prod­ucts that is suit­able for people of all skin types by us­ing al­ter­na­tive in­gre­di­ents that are nat­u­ral yet ef­fec­tive. which will of­ten have the words “cream” or “oil” in the name.

If you have nor­mal or oily skin, you don’t have to worry about us­ing mild cleansers – reg­u­lar soap or body wash should work fine.

There are also many types of body wash in the mar­ket de­signed es­pe­cially for oily skin. Some are even de­signed to help clear up body acne caused by ex­cess oil.

People with sen­si­tive skin may have the hard­est time de­cid­ing which body wash to use. If you have al­ler­gic re­ac­tions to cer­tain beauty prod­ucts, such as red­ness or itch­ing, try to avoid body washes that have fra­grances or a lot of preser­va­tives, since sen­si­tive skin will com­monly re­act neg­a­tively to those two in­gre­di­ents

There are nat­u­ral prod­ucts in the mar­ket that are spe­cially for­mu­lated to take into ac­count the chem­istry in­ter­play be­tween the hu­man skin and the need for ef­fec­tive cleans­ing that is not dam­ag­ing to the skin.

MooGoo, Aus­tralia’s leading nat­u­ral skin­care brand has de­vel­oped a full range of prod­ucts that is suit­able for people of all skin types by us­ing al­ter­na­tive in­gre­di­ents that are nat­u­ral yet ef­fec­tive to achieve the out­come of cleans­ing with­out dam­age.

MooGoo Milk Wash uses nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents to pre­vent dry­ing of the skin. Milk Protein (ca­sein) is sim­i­lar to the skin’s own protein and helps main­tain sup­ple­ness.

The nat­u­ral ester Glyc­erol Oleate pre­vents skin wa­ter loss and leaves the skin smoother.

MooGoo Milk Wash does not cre­ate big bub­bles like a syn­thetic de­ter­gent. It washes gen­tly and with­out dry­ing of the skin. Be­cause it is so gen­tle it is also a no tears for­mu­la­tion in chil­dren’s eyes.
