Today, we are going to talk about anhydrous facial products. If you are note familiar with the term, it means that the facial product does not contain water. At Mao Radiance, we offer multiple anhydrous facial products, which is what we will largely cover here today. However, I also want to browse over our skincare products that do contain water as well, specifically because of the type of water that we use.
Anhydrous Facial Products
Look at many of the labels on drugstore facial products and you are going to see water, just plain water, as the main skincare ingredient. If that is what you are seeing in the product, as someone that wants you to have the best for your skin, we would recommend that you put that product right back on the shelf.
Skincare products, generally speaking, are not cheap. So do you want to use something that is probably made up of 75 percent or more of plain old water. You are supposed to drink water, not have a product that costs you $30 or as its primary ingredient. There is another downside to products that contain plain water as their main ingredient… they will have a much shorter shelf life than anhydrous facial products.
With the green movement that is sweeping the country, you can also proudly say that your skincare products are helping to preserve the eco-system. There are parts of this world that are already struggling to find natural water sources, and by the year 2050, some studies estimate that 25 percent of the world’s population will have freshwater shortages.
All that information is great, but how are anhydrous facial products more beneficial?
Now, if we were telling you to use ONLY anhydrous facial products, we would be hypocritical because we do have product that contain water. The difference being that in some of our products, you will find rose water and distilled water, which actually do offer some benefits for skincare.
For instance, distilled water helps to unclog pores by removing soap and foaming residues. Rose water contains anti-inflammatory properties, which are great to help soothe irritated skin. If you ever have burning, itchy skin, you can apply just a small amount of rose water and you will be amazed at the cooling and calming effect it has on your skin.
