Preparation method:
In a glass/bowl, prepare phase A: mix the water with the pineapple powder, sprinkle with xanthan gum and mix vigorously until the gum disperses completely. The composition is left to rest for about 10 minutes, until the gel is formed, after which it is mixed again.

Over the gel formed, add the ingredients of phase B one by one and mix slowly, thoroughly, after each one. Excess foaming should be avoided. The cleanser thus obtained is transferred to the dedicated container. pH: ~ 7

The result is a gel cleanser, suitable for cleansing the skin, especially for mixed/oily skin with blackheads, congested or with acne tendencies. Contains ingredients for skin sanitization, purifying and sebum-regulating substances. Also contains ingredients for enzymatic and mechanical exfoliation. Take a small amount and spread it on wet palms, then massage on the skin with fine circular motions. Rinse well with lukewarm water.
