Micellar cleansing water is a type of facial cleanser made up of micelles dispersed in a solvent such as water. A micelle is an aggregate of surfactant molecules suspended in a liquid colloid. It consists of aggregated amphiphiles, which possess both hydrophilic and lipophilic properties and are in equilibrium with free amphiphiles while being in micellar solution. Generally, micelles are spherical but sometimes can be present in cylindrical and oblate shape. They have been recognized since earlier times and used as micellar water in France since 1913. Micellar cleansing water is a multi-functional skin care product used to remove makeup and oil from face due to its hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties. Micelle molecules act as a magnet to remove makeup, oil, dirt, and impurities from skin. The purified water, moisturizers, and mild surfactants present in micellar cleansing water are claimed to promote skin health and hydration.
