Environ Skin EssentiA Cleansing Gel
Softly cleanse and refresh your skin with the silky-feeling Low Foam Cleansing Gel from the expert skincare brand Environ. It effectively lifts makeup, oil, and impurities from your pores – without removing valuable natural oils.
This Environ Cleanser uses a clever gel formula to efficiently but gently exfoliate and hydrate, ensuring that your skin’s natural pH balance isn’t disturbed. It’s easy to rinse away when you’re done, and leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean, and beautifully radiant.
If you’re in search of a non-soapy cleanser to keep your skin looking bright and youthful, Environ Low Foam Cleansing Gel could be just the solution. With regular use of the Environ Cleanser as part of your daily skincare routine, you’ll soon see beautiful results.
What are the benefits of Environ Low Foam Cleansing Gel?
Many cleansing products contain sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), which is the foaming ingredient that’s responsible for the tight, dry, and stinging feeling you might associate with old-school cleansers and toners. However, Environ Low Foam Cleansing Gel is completely SLS-free.
Perfect for most skin types, the Environ Cleansing Gel uses panthenol (Vitamin B5), decyl-glucoside, and hydrolysed oats to provide low-foaming action that cleanses the skin without drying it out. Instead, this water-based cleanser works to deeply hydrate and restore your skin’s moisture balance.
The non-greasy formula leaves your face feeling refreshed, moisturised, and smooth, helping to reduce fine lines and restore youthful radiance to your visage. Excess oils and impurities are easily wiped away, leaving your natural skin barrier intact and strong.
How does Low Foam Cleanser work?
Instead of using SLS as a foaming agent, this Environ Cleanser uses decyl-glucoside, a mild surfactant derived from corn and coconuts. It also uses coco-glucoside as an additional foaming agent and emulsifier, also derived from coconuts and fruit sugars. These botanical and biodegradable ingredients stabilise mixtures of oil and water, and lather up gently without causing dryness.
Panthenol, a derivative of pantothenic acid, is absorbed by the body as Vitamin B5. Its presence in the Environ Gel Cleanser soothes and moisturises the skin, softening the surface while promoting wound healing and reducing water loss and inflammation. The result is smooth and hydrated skin with improved elasticity, without irritation or redness.
For even more moisturisation, it also contains hydrolysed oats (soluble oats made by splitting whole oat molecules with water). This humectant draws in moisture and plumps up the skin via deep hydration, decreasing the visibility of lines and wrinkles. As a co-emulsifier, hydrolysed oats also ensure that your face feels velvet-smooth afterwards with no sticky or greasy residue left on your skin.
Additionally, glycerin acts as another humectant, while tocopherol (Vitamin E) works as an antioxidant. It’s an anti-inflammatory agent that helps to lock moisture in and protect your skin against damage from UV rays or environmental pollution. When using the Environ Cleanser, your skin’s natural barrier is maintained, and your skin is soft and supple.

Environ Cleanser FAQs
You may think that soapy foaming cleansers do a better job of washing your skin, and wonder why this Environ cleanser is marketed as ‘Low Foam’. This is because overly-foaming cleansers can be harsh on the natural skin barrier, drying out your skin and potentially leading to further damage.
Gel cleansers like this one are water-based, with a slippery texture, and produce few bubbles. They provide a milder cleanse using more natural ingredients like plant-based oils. Foaming agents can cleanse more deeply, but at the cost of a pH imbalance and unpleasantly tight and stinging skin.
Non-foaming or low-foaming gel cleansers are perfectly effective at cleansing your skin of oils and bacteria, and are especially suitable for those with easily-irritated sensitive skin. This gel cleanser can clean out your pores without compromising your skin, leaving it feeling soothed instead of raw.

How to Apply+
Environ Low Foam Cleansing Gel is gentle enough to use both morning and evening, every day. Ideally, you should use this product after pre-cleansing, as follows:
1) Pre-cleanse your skin with a suitable product, such as Environ Dual Action Pre-Cleansing Oil, to break down surface oils and any makeup.
2) Apply 1-2 pumps of Low Foam Cleansing Gel to clean, wet hands, then apply to the skin on your face and neck while it’s still damp.
3) Use your fingertips to massage the product into your skin for 60 seconds until it forms a smooth lather, then rinse off completely with tepid water.
4) Follow up by applying your Environ toner, moisturiser, and serums to your freshly cleaned skin.
Warning: Please avoid contact with eyes. If you do get some of the Environ cleanser in your eyes, rinse it out carefully with warm water.
