Benefits of Sugar-based Cleansing

Benefits of Sugar-based Cleansing

Discover the benefits of natural cleansing.

First off, the consistency of the cleansing product you use isn't at all important. What really matters is what’s inside it. Surfactants are the main ingredient in the majority of cleansing products. Sugar-based surfactants are extremely effective and thorough yet gentle. They don’t affect the skin’s natural protective acid mantle and they don’t irritate sensitive areas such as the skin around the eyes.

Generally speaking, there are four different types of surfactant: cationic, anionic, amphoteric, and nonionic. And the potential to irritate the skin decreases in that order. In other words, cationic surfactants can severely irritate the skin, while nonionic ones are extremely mild. Sugar-based surfactants fall into the nonionic category. They consist primarily of sugar (glucose) and plant substances such as coconut oil. Names such as coco glucoside and capryl glucoside are given depending on the ingredients making up the sugar-based surfactant.

As well as cleansing effectively, sugar-based surfactants also tick all the boxes when it comes to sustainability. They are made almost entirely of natural, renewable substances. Being effective, natural, and sustainable, they fit right in with the Susanne Kaufmann values.

Our collection of cleansers are made using premium natural ingredients and effective combinations of plant-based substances. It goes without saying that natural sugar-based surfactants are a big part of this. They all have one thing in common: the ability to remove all dirt and makeup from the surface of the skin and penetrate deep into the skin through the pores and take effect there.

Skin tonics are the perfect addition to the cleansing products discussed above. They boost the skin's antioxidant protection and get it ready for subsequent care. The Tonic Soothing and Tonic Clarifying in our cleansing range, nourish and soothe the skin on top of that.
