Micellar Water

Micellar water is a facial cleanser that helps remove excess sebum and impurities from your skin.  The water-based cleanser was invented by Jean-Noël Thorel, the French founder of the skincare line Bioderma. Micellar water contains a chemical that forms into micelles (= small groups of molecules).

  • Micellar waters can be bad news for people with congested skin that's prone to breakouts. This is because the ingredients used in micellar waters leave a surface residue on the skin which can act like a film, blocking pores and oil disrupting oil production.
