Bi-Phase Micellar Water has two layers that enable the removal of all types of makeup, even waterproof makeup. (1) Micellar layer: This layer is made up of tiny micelle particles suspended in soft water. These tiny particles cluster together to capture dirt, oil, makeup and other impurities without drying out your skin. Acting like a magnet, impurities are lifted off your skin, leaving it thoroughly cleansed with no additional rinsing required. The effectiveness of these breakthrough micellar molecules guarantees a gentle cleanse that requires no harsh rubbing even for heavy makeup! (2) Cleansing layer: This unique formula specifically removes waterproof makeup while hydrating and moisturizing the skin. The best part is there is no presence of “nasties” in the formula – no oil, fragrance or alcohol – to irritate even the most sensitive of skin types.
