Your anti-ageing skincare begins with cleansing and is necessary to remove makeup, pollutants, micro-organisms and biological byproducts. As the epidermis is constantly replicating cellularly it is important to have a formulation that effectively emulsifies environmental toxins, pollution and cellular metabolites away and off the skin before active ingredients can be adequately absorbed via percutaneous pathways.
No cleanser would be complete without a surfactant and Alkyl Glucoside is a sugar derivative that gently works to emulsify and remove impurities away from the skin by creating temporary barrier disruption without defatting the lipidic function of the Stratum corneum.
The active ingredients in the Gentle Dermal Cleanser are known for their anti-oxidant properties and restorative effects. The vitamins selected are specific to controlling pigmentation and colour regularity and the plant extracts of Gotu Kola and CoQ10 contribute to anti-ageing benefits and scar reduction.
Ideally follow with Dermal Eye repair around the periorbital area then apply day/night serums 1,2 and 3 to the rest of the face and neck.
Can be used in the morning if needed* or as a non - inflammatory shaving lubricant for both Men and Women in facial and body areas.

* At Civona we recommend only cleansing in the morning if exposed to excessive free radicals (You have been out for the night etc) as over cleansing is a cause of many adverse skin issues. A couple of examples are increased Sebum production causing breakouts and diffused redness from inflammation. In the mornings we recommend just a warm water rinse to remove any night products still present before the application of the day serums and creams.
