Rationale #4 The PreCleanse Balm

Rationale #4 The PreCleanse Balm

#4 The PreCleanse Balm is a restorative prelude to your evening cleansing ritual, nourishing as it elevates moisture levels and gently removes all traces of makeup, sunscreen and impurities. Skin feels refined and hydrated as it is perfectly prepared for your second cleanse. This formulation is designed to be massaged gently over dry skin, then followed with a Client’s recommended RATIONALE Cleanser before rinsing clean. #4 The PreCleanse Balm will replenish intercellular lipids to restore skin integrity, helping to balance, nurture and rehydrate skin. You will be left with skin that feels comforted, softer and more supple, ready to apply your RATIONALE Essential Six formulations for the evening. 

Two particular actives of interest within this formulation are Vitamin E (Tocopherols + Tocotrienols) and Jojoba Esters. Vitamin E (Tocopherols + Tocotrienols) are lipid-soluble antioxidants which prevent the formation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) within the skin, alleviating oxidative stress and reducing signs of solar damage, erythema and oedema. A complete complement of Vitamin E molecules enhances the synthesis of Natural Moisturising Factors (NMF’s, elevating skin hydration. Jojoba Esters work to regenerate and repair damaged skin cells. Rich in Essential Six Fatty Acids, powerful antioxidants and vitamins, these naturally derived compounds help to alleviate skin sensitivity, reduce reactivity, and stimulate the synthesis of intercellular lipids. 

Rationale #4 The PreCleanse Balm, RRP $120 (50g).
