As the beauty industry grows, so do its products. Powder cleansers are the newest addition you need to know about. They are replacing regular liquid and gel-based face washes in the beauty industry, and for good reason. These powdered cleansers are much better than the conventional ones, especially for sensitive, acne-prone skin. Here’s why you need to make the switch too.

1. They are gentle and inexpensive

Liquid face cleansers contain abrasive cleaning agents like Sodium Laureth Sulphate, which can irritate the skin. Those with mild surfactants are typically more expensive. On the other hand, powder cleansers are less expensive and made with organic surfactants like oats and clays.

2. They contain no harmful chemicals

Since water is a crucial component of liquid face cleansers, most of them utilise chemical and harmful preservatives to increase shelf life and prevent contamination. However since powder cleansers have a dry formula where no preservatives are necessary.

3. They are concentrated and more efficient

As powder cleansers don’t include water, they are strong and more effective than liquid face cleansers because the active chemicals stay concentrated and undiluted. You may decide how much water to add while using it.

4. They exfoliate the skin gently

Most liquid face cleansers contain harsh chemicals and synthetic colours, which can further irritate sensitive skin, while powder-based cleansers are often made of natural and plant-based substances.
