What Is Double Cleansing?

Double cleansing is not new on the beauty scene, but we still receive many questions about it. So let's look at what double cleansing is all about:


What is double cleansing?

Double cleansing is the act of washing your face twice with two different types of cleansers: start first with an oil-based cleanser (like Skintella Cleansing Sherbet), then follow up with a water-based cleanser (like CoalFace Soap or CoalBerry Cleanser).


Why double cleanse?

Our skin typically has two types of impurities that we need to cleanse: oil-based and water-based. Oil-based impurities are makeup and skincare residue, and excess sebum. Water-based impurities are like sweat, dust, and dirt from environmental factors.

Double cleansing with two different types of cleansers is the most gentle yet effective way to remove oil-based and water-based impurities. Double cleansing is the best way to ensure the skin is thoroughly cleansed without stripping it and causing discomfort or long-term damage.


Who should double cleanse?

Double cleansing is for everyone! No matter what skin type or skin concern you have, you should double cleanse because everyone has both oil-based and water-based impurities on their skin that need thorough cleansing. Just make sure you choose the right cleansers and follow up with ample hydration, and moisturize!
