Micellar water is plain water suspended with tiny oil molecules known as “micelles”. Micelles possess both the hydrophobic and hydrophilic qualities and therefore have the ability to draw out impurities without drying out the skin. Like a magnet, these tiny molecules are attracted to dirt, sebum, and grime because of which it is widely used as a makeup remover. It is very soft on the skin and leaves skin perfectly refreshed and hydrating.
The formula was initially developed in France. It was to help the people living in Paris to cope with the harsh water supply of their region. Over decades it was popular in France. Presently, its popularity areas are expanding globally and it has become the essential product of daily skin care kit.
