The Fine Print
New Surfactant in Pumpkin Cleanser
With every formulation, our first consideration is to achieve results. For over 15 years, Rhonda Allison’s Pumpkin Cleanser has been treating photo-aged, dehydrated skins and providing valuable nutrients and deep-cleansing benefits. And just like fine wine, the formulation just gets better with time.
Thanks to new discoveries and cutting-edge science, Rhonda Allison is now able to provide a natural sugar-based, sulfate-free surfactant that allows an ultra-mild experience with all the expected benefits of Pumpkin Cleanser. In addition, this gentle surfactant works in tandem with the Lactic Acid (L) to boost the formula’s effectiveness.
So exactly what are “surfactants”?
Surfactants, short for “surface-active agents”, are a type of raw material that possess both water-soluble and oil-soluble characteristics capable of dissolving oils and holding dirt in suspension so it may be rinsed away with water. Along with adding lathering capabilities to formulations and working as surface-tension reducers, surfactants mainly function as water/oil stabilizers that help to break down oils and fats from our skin.
Dry to Normal, Combination – Photo-Aged, Dehydrated
Pour a small amount of Pumpkin Cleanser into hands and dampen fingertips. Apply cleanser to skin and massage for several minutes to loosen surface residue. Rinse well with warm water and a soft gauze pad. A second rinse may be necessary. Follow with an application of Pumpkin Rinse. AHA products may cause sun sensitivity – use sunscreen (SPF30). CAUTION: NOT RECOMMENDED for someone who is AHA sensitive.
By providing the same great formula with a mild, natural surfactant, Pumpkin Cleanser
- reduces potential irritation and dryness – great for most skin types.
- provides a more creamy consistency and richer foaming action.
- offers more conditioning with the same great exfoliating action.
- allows for better penetration into the skin.
- improves slip action for maximum effect during a dry cleanse.
