Skin toners are a classic in beauty routine, used for centuries in the form of floral waters such as rose water (rosa damascena or rosa centifolia). Our grandmothers used the floral waters to relax and as a skin remedy to take care of redness, acne and dry skin.

With all the high tech progress of modern cosmetics, it seems we have forgotten the reasons why your skin needs face toner today. Here they are for you:

Detox your mind

Rose hydrolat or hydrosol is one of the traditional herbal extracts that we love using in our products. It is like a close encounter with a rose, leaving your mind and skin refreshed. It is one the best and easiest ways to leave the day busyness behind and to start looking after yourself and your skin.

Detox your skin

With modern pollution and the daily use of make up and cosmetics the skin is exposed to all sorts of substances. Cleansing the skin has become an essential part of modern beauty routine. In fact effective and kind skin cleansing has become as important as nourishing the skin with good anti ageing beauty products. Utilising a cleanser or even an all in one cleanser toner to save time, does not quite do it. It is like having a bath without rinsing the dirty water off. In fact when iClear Skin Tonic is applied after the cleanser you can see residues of dirt still coming off.

Prepare your skin to receive

Modern skin toners can be enriched with deeply moisturising ingredients. This is an important function because the skin cleansing takes away from the skin. With the toner you start giving back to the skin gently to prepare it to receive deep nourishment.

Our Skin Tonic is enriched with

organic rose water,

brightening cucumber extract

moisturising amino acid from sugar beet.
