What is double cleaning?

Double cleansing consists of removing make-up from the face with a make-up remover oil and then cleansing it with a cleanser. In this way, the skin is both rid of greasy substances, such as sebum and make-up, and of aqueous molecules, such as sweat and pollution, allowing it to regenerate better. The final stage of the ritual consists of applying a lotion as a first moisturizing gesture to prepare the skin for the reception of the active ingredients contained in the products applied afterwards.

Contrary to popular belief, plant oils are suitable for all skin types, even oily skin. There are many plant oils, with a variety of different textures, able to provide each skin type with the required benefits.

      The effectiveness and benefits of oil makeup removal should convince you to adopt vegetable oils in your routine!

      Le Double Nettoyage

      1. Oil, the most effective way to remove skin make-up

      Indeed, the oil will capture the lipophilic molecules present on the skin such as sebum and make-up with more efficiency than a liquid body. Even the most stubborn and waterproof make-up dissolves gently. The skin is thoroughly cleansed of all impurities accumulated during the day.

      Using a makeup remover oil is also a way of take care on skin right from the make-up stage. This method makes it possible to promote significant oxygenation of the skin and delaying skin aging. For urban dwellers, this is also a great way to eliminate the pollution particles on your face that are pulling out very well with a fat body.

      Oil, even for combination or oily skins!

      People concerned about imperfections and shine may be afraid to include a make-up remover oil in their routine - wrongly so! Using a make-up remover oil is in no way a source of extra shine since it emulsifies on contact with water and is bound to be rinsed off by the cleanser. It is even the texture most likely to eliminate greasy substances already secreted by the skin.

      Moreover, it is often the cleaning and make-up removal stage that is at the origin of imperfections. Too abrasive or not efficient enough, bad make-up removal can cause your skin a lot of problems: imperfections, shine, tightness, skin dryness...

      Eco-friendly make-up removal

      Using a make-up remover oil is also a way to reduce waste production. In fact, a woman uses an average of 6 cotton pads per day in her cosmetic routine, which represents more than 2000 pads per year. Knowing that growing cotton is polluting and requires a lot of quantity water, reducing our consumption can only be beneficial for the environment. Moreover, for sensitive skin, the use of cotton can cause irritation and tightness. On the contrary, a finger massage allows an ultra-gentle make-up removal.

      The quality of the plant oil is a deciding factor.

      It is also important to know that not all vegetable oils are worth: their cultivation or extraction method can alter their quality. At Patyka, we use Virgin vegetable oils, obtained by first cold pressure, which preserves the quality of the active ingredients present in the oils.

      La qualité des Huiles Végétales

      Flash Cleansing Oil from the range CLEAN

      Cleansing Oil Eclair Consists mainly of a trio of organic vegetable oils and cold-extracted:

      - Organic sunflower oil is renowned for its wealth of Omega 9s. This oleic acid has great similarities with sebum and the hydrolipidic film. Thus, it brings hydration without disturbing the skin. Protective and antioxidant, Sunflower oil softens and soothes the skin. Its fatty substance is very effective in dissolving any make-up while allowing the skin to heal and renew itself. Its comedogenic index is equal to 0 It is therefore also suitable for problem skin.

      - Organic jojoba oil is widely used in cosmetics since it is the vegetable oil whose structure is closest to that of the sebum that our skin produces every day. Thus, it is regulating, protective, nourishing and healing. It eliminates bacteria and soothes inflammation. It hydrates the skin by balancing its pH (hydrogen potential), which strengthens the hydrolipidic barrier and allows cell regeneration.

      2. The foam cleanser step

      The next step is to use a foam cleaner. While oil removes lipophilic molecules, the cleaner attacks hydrophilic molecules such as sweat and dust. The skin is deeply cleansed and oxygenated.

      Respecting the skin's barrier

      It is crucial to pay attention to the pH of the cleaner you are using. If the pH is above 6.5, it directly attacks the skin's hydrolipidic barrier. Cleansers that are too abrasive are very often the cause of many skin problems: imperfections, tightness, excessive sebum production, inflammation, discomfort, etc.

      Indeed, by stripping the film from our skin, it can take up to several hours for it to be able to protect itself again from bacteria, and during this time the skin is vulnerable. In addition, the active ingredients present in our various everyday products are less effective because they take longer to penetrate the skin.
