Why is it good for skin of colour?
The number 1 mistake when washing the face is to over-cleanse and strip the skin of its natural fats. Skin of colour already has less ceramides than Caucasian skin, which makes it easier for the skin barrier to be compromised, leading to sensitivity.
Our Micellar Gel Wash contains skin barrier strengthening Niacinamide, skin soothing Centella Asiatica and water magnet Glycerin.
Contains DermStim TM anti aging, anti pigmentation complex for skin of colour
It is 'NAFE SAFE' to minimise chances of irritation i.e. No Denatured Alcohol, No Fragrance and No Essential Oils.
Irritation can be more problematic for darker skin tones, and therefore it should be avoided where possible.
Who is this product for?
For most skin types (normal/dry/combination) & persons over 16 years and over.
Persons with oily skin can also use the range but will be more suited to use the upcoming 'Dr Vanita Rattan Trio Blemish' range for oily/acne prone skin instead
(e.t.a April 2022).
Not for persons with a history of reactions to skincare products or overly sensitive or damaged skin.

"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."
I am a trained Human Resource Professional with an MBA in Human Resource Management-Training and Development and have amassed fifteen (15) years corporate experience in that discipline.
I decided to embark on a new career path which led me to be involved in my family's Physiotherapy Clinic. During that period I became very aware of the multi-faceted world of wellness. I settled into the area of skin care and began immersing myself in the vast amounts of available knowledge. Some recommendations therein led me to experiment with my teenage daughter and myself as we both had skin challenges. I can say now that I am beginning to see the best skin of my life and regret not knowing about the regimen earlier.
I am the proud promoter of products and treatments which ensure minimum irritation but maximum efficacy.
The love of skincare has prompted the birth of the business Skincare Approved by G, to share and promote with those persons who believe in following a similar skincare philosophy.
Thank you for allowing me to take you on this journey.
