Mint is well known for its delicious freshness, taste and fragrance. We know less about its purifying and detoxifying properties, and its benefits for combination to oily skin. Today, it is integrated into effective and practical care products, resulting from an eco-responsible approach.
Rich in polyphenols, active ingredients known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it is at the heart of the formulas of Klorane’s certified organic purifying face care range: mentha aquatica L. Indeed cultivated in organic farming in the Tarn on the lands of the brand, the extract used in the products is obtained by a patented process which uses neither water nor solvent and whose carbon footprint is reduced by 72%* . Cleanse your skin with this conscious three-step routine based on ORGANIC Aquatic Mint.
1. Cleanse your face morning and evening, gently
It combines the purifying properties of ORGANIC aquatic mint with the absorbent power of green clay. Practical, in its 100% recycled plastic bottle, the 3-in-1 Purifying Powder helps cleanse the skin on a daily basis, without drying it out. Just add a few drops of water and the powder transforms into a light foam. Applied in light massage, it cleans, purifies and exfoliates. Once rinsed, the skin is clearer, softer, rid of impurities and pollution particles.
2. Hydrate, mattify and purify
Combination to oily skin needs hydration, but also active ingredients that protect it against pollution and help regulate sebum production. Fresh and light, the Purity Cream combines the purifying virtues of ORGANIC Aquatic Mint with a 100% natural ingredient whose seboreducing properties are recognized: Monolaurin. The skin is mattified, hydrated for 24 hours and protected from pollution. Day after day, sebum production decreases.
3. Treat yourself to a detox break whenever your skin needs it
Do you want to freshen up but don’t want to embark on the tedious application of a classic mask? The Stick Mask with ORGANIC Aquatic Mint and clay is applied in the blink of an eye. Thanks to the stick format in a 100% recycled and recyclable plastic case, the gesture is precise and the right amount is applied to the entire face. The exposure time depends on your availability and your needs: 5 minutes for a boost of radiance, 10 minutes to purify and intensely mattify, 20 minutes for an in-depth transformation and skin protected against the effects of pollution. The skin is fresher and more luminous, as if immersed in a bubble of purity, and thanks to the 15% moisturizing agents contained in the mask, it remains supple and nourished.
4. Ever more responsible care
As a bonus? The Stick Mask and the Purity Cream have a nice A in the Green Impact Index by Pierre Fabre. It is an extension of the Conscious Care approach to which all Pierre Fabre brands have long been committed. It makes it possible to evaluate each product according to criteria such as the biodegradability and naturalness of the formula, its carbon footprint, or the water consumption that its design induces, etc. It is the possibility for consumers to have transparent information, and therefore to choose ever more responsible skincare products that respect nature and society as a whole. A very useful evaluation scale to make conscious choices!
