What if I told you, you could cleanse, exfoliate and lightly moisturize your face all by using one 100% vegan cleansing bar? Thought so! While you can’t do that with most cleansers, you can with Wonderbar… Despite being a bar, it’s actually technically not a soap, but a pH-balanced cleanser that is perfectly compatible with the acid mantel of the skin. Not only does the bar cleanse, but as it cleanses the lather exfoliates – not like any exfoliation you’ve ever felt – in fact, you’ll feel nothing, but it IS doing it.
As skin cells start at a neutral pH and then turn to an acidic pH of 5.6 or so. Once the cleanser exfoliates, skin is then ready to accept the natural detox and moisturization that come from its potent and highly lauded ingredients of Deep Moor Clay and Chlorey’nahre, a European product made from algae, (which has long been known to be a rich, natural source of anti-oxidants, vitamins, trace minerals and amino acids, that in turn assist in the production of lipids and glucids. Using nanotechnology along with these ingredients, the bar is excellent at detoxifying and healing skin.
While the application technique may be counter-intuitive (it’s recommended that a lather be applied to a dry face initially), when used regularly, a really really lovely complexion reveals itself. You can also use it as a mask by applying a light film over dry skin and letting it dry, whereupon it pulls impurities to the surface. All the better to bring those comedones out! You may also find that your other skin care products work better as the skin cells may be much more receptive.
What is also great about this product is that as it is a solid, it is great for travel, and in a pinch works extremely well at cleansing the scalp. Wonderbar stresses that this product is super effective–so much so that in clearing one’s skin of embedded impurities, it is not unlikely that a percentage may experience a healing crisis, or a “gets worse before it gets better” phase. (I myself had this experience, but for me, was worth the inconvenience.) STAY INTREPID! This is because several different strains of bacteria and candida live on the skin and as the acid mantle is stabilized, those bacteria may respond until optimum conditions are reached.
It is also possible that one may experience some initial dryness, but that subsides, and skin conditions like acne, rosacea and melasma have been shown to improve if one continues through the phase. Ready to get started? Head to their site or find a retail location here.
