A micelle is a complex structure composed of gentle non-ionic surfactants (cleansing agents), in the form of an invisible microsphere.

Micelles have 2 characteristics:

  • a hydrophilic head that is water soluble
  • and a lipophilic tail that attracts oily materials and is incompatible with water.

This double affinity allows them to attract all kinds of impurities and attach them to the cotton wool. This means they can remove external residues from the environment (make-up, impurities from air pollution, etc.) and impurities related to the skin’s natural functions (sebum, sweat, desquamation, etc.)

Micellar water mode of action

BIODERMA’s micellar solutions are recommended by dermatologists and make-up professionals love them.

Your Skin - Sensibio

They are the leading micellar products because they are made from rigorously selected ingredients.

These include:

  • a specific fatty acid ester called glycerol ester, which is a biomimetic active ingredient that is very similar to the skin’s composition. This is why BIODERMA's micellar water guarantees such high tolerance, even for sensitive skin.
  • high purified water with a unique physiological pH that is the safest available, offering the highest level of chemical and microbiological purity. This is why you do not need to rise off micellar solutions. 


They are hypoallergenic and contain no alcohol and parabens, perfectly matching with the skin and preserving its hydrolipidic film.

How are they different from water ?

Tap water has calcium and chlorine, which may irritate the skin. Thermal waters have no cleansing properties. Their composition varies depending on the season, region and more.

 

 

Why are there several micellar water formulas ? 

Laboratoire Bioderma has designed specific micellar solutions based on what each skin type needs. They provide perfect tolerance and optimal comfort for all skin types, including sensitive, intolerant and oily. They even have a product designed for delicate baby skin. 

Key points

Daily cleansing

  • You can use a micellar water to cleanse your face before applying facial care products.
  • Each evening at bedtime, it is very important to cleanse your skin, even if you do not wear make-up because you need to remove the many impurities that have accumulated during the day on your epidermis, including pollution residue, scales, sweat, dirt, etc.
