What is in CLEAN SLATE and why does it help with anti-aging?

CLEAN SLATE is an all-natural cleansing cloth that was designed to be more than a wipe.  Made in Canada, CLEAN SLATE is a package of 30 wipes that can be thrown into your gym bag, into your purse or placed on your bathroom vanity to be used daily.

The cloths are soaked in essential oils and anti-aging properties that will cleanse and tone your face. The cloths are biodegradable, and the solution is vegan, and free of latex, alcohols, parabens, formaldehyde, and dyes.

But what are the ingredients? What helps with anti-aging?

Let me tell you!

HYALURONIC ACID (HA):

As we get older, our skin loses the ability to hold onto moisture. This results in the visible loss of firmness and plumpness, aka wrinkles and fine lines appearing.  With the introduction of HA into our daily skin care, like in CLEAN SLATE, we can replenish moisture.  This will make your skin look and feel softer, smoother, and hydrated which in turn improves those fine lines and wrinkles. But, in our ingredient list we listed HA as Sodium Hyaluronate?

Sodium Hyaluronate is derived from Hyralonic Acid and has the same benefits but absorbs into the skin easier!

Hyaluronic Acid is not one of those trendy ingredients that you hear.  HA is naturally produced by our bodies to aid in all skin types:  rosacea, eczema, oily, sensitive or breakout-prone skin. Our skin suffers daily from sun exposure, harsh skincare, and other environmental impacts.  HA works as an anti-oxidant against the environment.

Just this ingredient alone makes me want to use CLEAN SLATE wipes everyday!

ALOE:

Aloe was added to CLEAN SLATE because of its soothing, antioxidant, and hydrating properties.  Ever get a sunburn?  Aloe is a great skin-soothing ingredient and gives a refreshing sensation.  Who doesn’t want that in their cleansing cloth after a workout or when they are taking off their makeup? I know I do!

WITCH HAZEL:

Witch Hazel acts as a natural toner.  It works to remove excess oil deposits from your skin and clean pores. A dermatologist at New York University Medical Center said that “Witch hazel can help under the eyes to reduce puffiness and can tighten pores and reduce breakouts in acne-or rosacea-prone patients”

For men, the anti-inflammatory antioxidant effects of witch hazel also help sooth irritated skin, making it a great ingredient for post-shaving.

CHAMOMILE:

Chamomile has antioxidants that provide skin soothing benefits for your skin.

WILLOW BARK

Willow bark is a simple and beneficial ingredient.  It simply has soothing benefits for your skin.

LEMONGRASS

Lemongrass is packed with vitamin A and C.  It works by keeping your skin healthy, minimizing pores, and keeping the oil levels balanced.  It has anti-fungal properties, which also aid in cutting down on acne.

Using CLEAN SLATE with lemongrass acts as a toner to balance out the oils in your face.  Great for after a workout or before applying makeup!

As you can see, CLEAN SLATE was made with the best natural ingredients to provide the most benefits to your skin.  There are no harmful chemicals that you will find in other drugstore brands.  Ingredients such as formaldehyde, parabens, alcohols, etc. Instead we have soaked our wipes in ingredients that will be beneficial to your skin and help keep you looking youthful!

Don’t believe me? Try them out for yourself. You will feel the effects of the wipes working right after you use them.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to send me an email!
