CLEANSING WITH SOAP AND WATER?
Your skin can be cleaner and healthier with
Cleansing Lotion and Skin Toner
|Although Facial Cleansing Lotions are a growing market, the
majority of women, and most men, still use soap and water to cleanse their face.
Soap is fine for the body. But if you are a woman who uses makeup and you're washing your face with soap and water, your face may note be truly clean.
And man or woman, if you live amidst city pollution or spend time near auto traffic, your face may not be as clean as you think it is.
Soap is an excellent surface cleanser for dirt or dust. But makeup leaves deposits deeper in pores; is not easily removed by soap and water. When makeup isn't thoroughly removed, it can clog skin pores. Many Dermatologists report cases of "acne cosmetic" due to insufficient cleansing of makeup.
And men who work outdoors or drive autos are exposed to a powdered garbage from auto exhausts called "acrolein". This, too, gets deep into pores and needs a deep Cleansing Lotion followed by Skin Toner.
What's more, daily soap-and-water cleansing can be drying to the skin. Beyond the drying effects of most soaps, tap water is generally hard and adds to the drying and lessening of skin radiance.
To prove soap's limitations, add some Cleansing Milk to a moistened piece of cotton. Then go over the area you cleansed with soap. You'll probably be surprised to see how much dirt is on the cotton from a face you thought was well cleansed with soap.

The Karité Tree
... a legend rediscovered
On the ivory coast of Africa, legend has it that ancient ladies of royalty used the butter-like substance from nuts of the Karité tree to keep their skin smooth and youthful, to soothe skin irritations and to avoid dryness to skin and hair. Many warrior husbands used it to heal their wounds.
Keeping skin youthful is no easy matter in a climate that combines the harsh tropical sun, mighty winds and sand storms. And yet the bountiful Karité defies weather extremes and remains strong and "fruitful" through generation after generation.
The remarkable virtues of the "nut butter" from the Karité tree was rediscovered several years ago, and has been widely used in Europe the past 3-4 years.
BOTANÉE introduces Karité to America in products that soothe and have natural anti-irritant qualities. Thus, skins that get irritated from general cosmetics, or sensitive skin, will have a particular fondness for the BOTANÉE line.
The Botanée Karité Collection
|Plant extracts (botanicals) are gentle, easily accepted by the
skin; and are probably the safest, most non-allergenic of all cosmetic ingredients.
Now, the natural extract of the ancient Karité tree, already popular in Europe and Africa, brings new excitement to the benefits of botanicals.
Although Botanée's advertising focus will be on its Cleanser and Toner, the cleansing duo is supplemented by two other Botanée products (1) Hand & Body Lotion (2) Daytime Cream Moisturizer.

|Botanée Skin Toner
