The Science Behind Micellar Face Wipes

What is Micellar Water and why are micelles so good at gentle cleansing? Get to grips with this very popular, cleansing technology.

How do Micelles Work?

Micelles act like they are tiny magnets, with the in-built technology to remove dirt, make-up, and other impurities from your face. The secret is in their structure. Micelles are soft on the outside and strong on the inside. 

What are Micelles?

Micelles are clusters of microscopic molecules and cleaning agents. They are made up of ‘water-loving’ (hydrophilic) and ‘fat-loving’ (lipophilic) parts. Efficient face cleansers allow you to remove water-soluble and fat-soluble dirt, as well as make-up from the face. Micelles are perfect at this. As micelles are naturally attracted to water - the type of microscopic dirt which can be found on your face allows Micellar Water to cause an almost magnetic effect, removing dirt and make-up from your face smoothly. This is natural phenomenon is used in all NIVEA products containing Micellar technology. 

Why are Face Cleansers so Important?

Regardless of make-up, the skin on your face is exposed to different dirt and bacteria all day long - whether from touching your face or speaking on your phone, to playing with your pets! Removing this dirt, bacteria and any make-up you have on helps to stop the pores from becoming clogged up. NIVEA Daily Essentials 3 in 1 Cleansing Micellar Wipes also help the delicate skin on your face look naturally healthy and glowing.
