Healthy beautiful skin begins with clean skin. Therefore, it is important to cleanse the face regularly to remove impurities and dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. Accumulated dirt, sebum and dead skin cells do not only result in dull and lifeless skin but also prevents your skin from absorbing the beneficial ingredients from your skincare products.
Hada Labo has identified some of the common skin problems among Asians and has therefore developed various different cleansers that can be found in the market today. Among them are the Moisturising Face Wash, es Foaming Wash, AHA/BHA Cleansing and the Whitening Face Wash. This year, Hada Labo is introducing three more products to its face wash product category namely Deep Clean & Blemish Control Face Wash, Deep Clean & Pore Refining Face Wash and Hydra & Whitening Face Wash with each of these targeting specific skin problems.
Hada Labo’s new face wash products are formulated with Bentonite Clay that has over 70 traces of minerals from the natural volcanic ash sediments. The clay that is included in the face wash formulation effectively absorbs excess dirt, oil and impurities from the skin. Despite its fine texture, the clay is able to exfoliate dead skin, thus cleaning up the pores and improving the skin’s texture.
Just like any other Hada Labo products, the Hyaluronic Acid is also a key ingredient in the face wash products. It has excellent moisture retention capacity and is able to replenish the skin’s essential moisture while preserving the optimum moisture balance while it cleanses, allowing the skin to stay hydrated and plump.
The new face wash products have a soft cream texture that foams up easily. Skin feels refreshed and moisturised after a wash. They are pH balance and free from alcohol, colorant, fragrance and mineral oil which makes them perfect for all skin types.
