Why Cleansing Powders?

Cleansing powders originated in South East Asia and have made their way over to the West for good reason. They are typically multifunctional; and can be adapted to the customers specific cleansing needs and often can be used as deep cleansing masks. They can be customised to suit any skin type; whether they want something light and gentle or deeply exfoliating.  The level of cleansing is related to how much water they add.   The customer is involved in adjusting the product to their needs which also offers an additional 'ritualistic' element to their beauty routine.

Cleansing powders have become a popular addition to skincare brands because they are easily adapted, suitable for all skin-types including sensitive skin and once formulated well, are very easy to manufacture.  The process requires no heat, simply combine the ingredients, and they are ready to package.
