Riversol | Micellar Water - Oak + Tonic

A nourishing, dermatologist developed Micellar Water to completely remove even waterproof, or long-wear make-up without irritation.

Overview

This powerful make-up remover won't irritate even the most sensitive skin. Pair it with our Microfibre Make-up Removal Cloth for the best clean your skin has ever had.

How it works:  Micelles

The Riversol Micellar Water uses hyper-effective cleaning molecules called "micelles" to remove all make-up efficiently and more gently than traditional make-up removers.

These dual-ended micelle molecules are attracted to water on one end (the hydrophilic "head"), while the other end is attracted to the grease, oils, and make-up on the skin (the surfactant "tail"). This molecular arrangement is the key to micellar water's impressive make-up removing power, and its ability to be non-irritating on even the most sensitive skin.

 

Micelles

The key components in micellar water are called "micelles". These dual-ended molecules are attracted to water on one end (the hydrophilic "head"), while the other end is attracted to the grease, oils, and make-up on your face (the surfactant "tail"). When applying micellar water to a cotton pad or a microfibre cloth, the hydrophilic head is attracted to the hydrophilic fibres of the cloth or cotton. This leaves the surfactant side sticking up, ready to attract any oils and dirt, and make-up.

This molecular arrangement means that micellar water is more efficient, effective, and gentle than traditional make-up removers or soaps.
