The Rice Facial Cleanser has become one of my most highly recommended products here on The Beauty Proof. Its ability to benefit a wide range of skin types is undeniable.
Why it rocks:
- It’s a cross between a foaming and a creamy cleanser.
- It works for all skin types, including some which typically require specialty products. In particular: sensitive, acne-prone, and mature.
- It’s free of ingredients I seek to avoid, such as parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. Also, Juara chose not to fancy it up with unnecessary—and potentially irritating—essential oils. I respect that.
- It won’t dry skin, but keeps it soft and supple.
Remove Makeup First
With this and all cleansers, I recommend removing makeup before cleansing the face. How to remove makeup is a matter of personal preference; however, two of my favorites are organic jojoba oil and these little individually-wrapped wipes.
That way, once the makeup is removed, you can focus on using this Rice Facial Cleanser as a therapeutic treatment for the skin, massaging and preparing skin for any serums or moisturizers to follow.
After switching to a double-cleansing technique, many people report that their skin is brighter, smoother and clearer. That was certainly my experience.
Inside the Ingredients
Although some of the ingredients in the Juara Rice Facial Cleanser may seem foreign, they’re safe and compatible with a green beauty routine.
Ingredients: water, decyl glycoside, polyglyceryl-10 caprylate/caprate, coco-glucoside, safflower oleosomes, glyceryl oleate, hydrolyzed jojoba esters, candlenut oil, rice bran extract, carrageenan, xanthan gum, sodium levulinate, potassium sorbate, citric acid, natural fragrance.
|Extremely Safe||Reasonably Safe||Proceed with Caution||Insufficient Data|
Decyl glucoside is a safe, mild surfactant (cleansing agent). Most surfactants have the potential to cause skin irritation, but decyl glucoside is different in that it’s derived from natural sources: glucose sugar from cornstarch combined with the fatty acid found in coconut.
Another interesting ingredient, rice bran extract, reduces redness and irritation. Rice bran has been used for hundreds of years throughout Asia to enhance skin’s suppleness and youthful appearance. It’s an excellent addition to this mild cleanser.
Candlenut oil is more familiar in Indonesia than it is here in the United States. Also known as kukui nut oil, it’s moisturizing and restorative, without greasiness. It’s rich in linoleic and linolenic acid, making it nutritious for skin.
