According to dictionaries, micelles are submicroscopic objects formed by the combination of a few dozen molecules formed in aqueous solutions. These so-called amphiphilic compounds are characterized by a molecular structure that includes one or more hydrophilic parts (with a high affinity for water) and one or more lipophilic parts (with a high affinity for oils). This property makes them particularly effective in capturing impurities and other stains on the skin before removing them and leaving the epidermis clean and fresh. A single step to replace the cleansing milk + lotion combination, guaranteed performance and softness… explain the success of micellar waters. Here is a selection, all tested, evaluated and finally recommended by the experts at CosmeticOBS.
