What Is Micellar Water?

Omumsie Micellar water is a Parisian skincare innovation that has taken the beauty world by storm. Created in response to the city's notoriously hard tap water, which can be harsh on skin and hair, micellar water is a liquid cleanser that doesn't require lathering or rinsing.

At Omumsie, we love the simplicity and effectiveness of micellar water. It's a gentle yet effective way to remove dirt and oil from your skin without the need for harsh chemicals or rinsing. Imagine a soap that cleanses your skin without the need for lathering or rinsing - that's micellar water in a nutshell.

Keep reading to learn more about why Omumsie micellar water is an essential addition to your skincare routine.

How Does Micellar Water Work?

If you're wondering how micellar water can be effective without lathering or rinsing, there's a fascinating scientific explanation behind it. Micellar water contains micelles, which are special molecules that act like magnets for oil and dirt.

At Omumsie, we understand the power of micelles and their ability to gently but effectively remove dirt and oil from your skin without stripping away moisture or causing irritation. When you wipe a cloth that has been dipped in micellar water across your skin, the micelles attract and remove all the gunk and grime.

In short, Omumsie micellar water works by using micelles to sweep away dirt, makeup, and oil from your skin, leaving it clean and refreshed. Keep reading to learn more about why micellar water is a game-changer for your skincare routine.

Is Micellar Water Safe For Babies?

As a parent, it's important to consider the ingredients in the skincare products you use on your baby. So, is Omumsie micellar water safe for your little one? The answer is yes, absolutely! Omumsie Micellar water is a gentle and safe way to cleanse your baby's delicate skin.

However, it's essential to choose the right micellar water for your baby. Some adult formulations may contain alcohol or other harmful ingredients that can irritate your baby's easily irritated skin. It's best to avoid these types of micellar water, especially for newborns and babies with extremely sensitive or dry skin.

Another chemical to be cautious of is sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) or sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS). These surfactants are safe for adults but can irritate your baby's skin and eyes. So, it's crucial to check the ingredients and ensure that the micellar water you choose for your baby does not contain SLS or SDS.

Lastly, avoid harsh chemicals like parabens,, and phthalates. At Omumsie, we understand how important it is to choose safe and gentle ingredients for your baby's skincare routine. That's why our micellar water is free from harmful chemicals and formulated specifically for delicate baby skin.

Ingredients To Avoid

Alcohol : Synthetic alcohol can dehydrate and irritate both your skin and your baby's skin, and may even trigger skin allergies or sensitivities. Nonetheless, not all types of alcohol are harmful, as some fatty alcohols can be beneficial for your skin. It can be confusing to identify the good and bad alcohols because they can have similar names in the ingredient list. To ensure that your skincare product does not contain harmful alcohols, you should avoid synthetic benzyl alcohol, synthetic phenethyl alcohol, SD alcohol, ethanol or ethyl, isopropyl, and methanol.

Sulphates : Sulfates are a type of surfactant that creates lather and foam, giving you the feeling of being thoroughly cleansed. They are commonly found in shampoo and other cleansing products. However, sulfates are a synthetic ingredient, and while they can be derived from natural sources like coconut or palm oil, they are usually made from petroleum.

The first issue with sulfates is that they can cause dryness by stripping the natural oils that keep your skin moisturized. They can also cause irritation in people with sensitive skin. Additionally, there are concerns about the manufacturing process of the sulfate SLES, which may involve a substance known to cause cancer.

Fortunately, you don't need sulfates to achieve a good level of cleanliness. To avoid these issues, stay away from sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS).

Parabens : Parabens are a common preservative used in skincare products because they are inexpensive and effective at preventing mould and bacteria growth. They can be found in a wide range of products, such as moisturisers, shampoos, and sunscreen. However, the downside of parabens is that they can mimic the hormone oestrogen in the body, which raises health concerns. Therefore, at Omumsie, we choose to avoid the use of parabens altogether. We believe it's better to err on the side of caution and prioritise the health and safety of our customers.

Phthalates : Phthalates are a chemical ingredient commonly used in skincare products, such as soap, shampoo, and nail polish, as well as in toys, food packaging, and vinyl flooring. They are plasticizers that make plastics more flexible and durable. In cosmetics, they're used to reduce stiffness or enhance scent. Although there isn't conclusive evidence, there are concerns about the potential effects of phthalates on the human body. They may act as endocrine disruptors, linked to neurodevelopmental disorders in children, and contribute to asthma and allergies in children. Therefore, we prefer to avoid using phthalates in our products. Apart from harmful ingredients like the ones mentioned above, micellar water is a safe option for your baby's skincare routine. Micellar water is a mild and gentle cleanser due to the oil-grabbing properties of the micelle tails. 

We recommend considering the following three micellar water products that are safe for your little one (and for you too!).

Certified Organic Micellar Water With Olive Oil And Aloe

Our dermatologist & paediatrician approved Organic Micellar Water with Olive Oil and Aloe is not your typical micellar water, and it even won many hearts for sustainability.

We carefully formulated it using clean ingredients, with 99% of them naturally derived. Two of the essential ingredients are organic aloe vera and organic olive oil. These ingredients go through a cold-pressed extraction process to maximise their potency and skin-nourishing properties.

This fragrance-free micellar water is not only good for your skin but also for the environment, as it's designed to be eco-friendly, both inside and out. The formula is biodegradable, and the packaging is sustainably sourced.

Omumsie no rinse micellar cleansing water gentle enough for your baby's skin while being effective enough to use in your makeup-removing routine.

No Rinse Cleansing Water

If you're in search of the perfect micellar water for your baby, look no further than Omumsie's No Rinse Cleansing Water. It's an alcohol-free and hypoallergenic micellar water, specially formulated for babies and safe to use even on newborns.

With 98% of its ingredients derived from natural sources, including Omumsie's avocado, this micellar water helps protect your baby's delicate skin. It also features aloe vera leaf extracts that work to soften and soothe the skin.

As with all Omumsie products, No Rinse Cleansing Water is free of parabens, phthalates, and phenoxyethanol. It has been thoroughly tested under both paediatric and dermatological control, ensuring complete peace of mind when using this product on your baby.


How Do You Use Micellar Water?

Now that we've covered what micellar water is, how it works, and why it's safe for babies, let's discuss how to use it properly. Follow these simple steps to safely and effectively use Omumsie's No Rinse Cleansing Water on your little one:

  1. Spray the cleansing water onto a washcloth or cotton pad. Apply generously, but avoid saturating the fabric too much.
  2. Gently pat the cloth onto the area of your baby's body that you want to cleanse. Hold it against the skin for 3-5 seconds.
  3. Wipe the wet cloth along the same area of your baby's skin that you held the cloth against in step 2. You can wipe the same area several times if necessary. When cleaning your baby's diaper area, always wipe from front to back.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for all other parts of your baby's body that need cleansing.

Using micellar water on your baby is easy, safe, and effective. Here are a few additional tips to keep in mind:

  • If you're cleaning your baby's diaper area, it's best to use cotton pads instead of a washcloth. This way, you can dispose of each pad after use.
  • If you choose to use a washcloth, be sure to select a soft and gentle cloth that won't be too harsh on your baby's delicate skin. Also, use different areas of the cloth to cleanse different parts of your baby's skin. After each use, discard the used cloth and use a fresh one.

By following these tips, you can effectively use Omumsie's No Rinse Cleansing Water to keep your baby's delicate skin clean and healthy.


When Should You Use Micellar Water?

As we mentioned earlier, micellar water was originally developed in Paris to provide a gentle and effective way for men and women to cleanse their faces without using the city's harsh tap water. Nowadays, many women use micellar water as a makeup remover or as a gentle cleanser when traditional lathering and rinsing isn't possible. Omumsie's Micellar Cleansing Water is a great option for those looking for a gentle and effective cleansing solution.


But what about your little bundle of joy? When is it appropriate to use micellar water on your baby? The answer is that micellar water can be incredibly useful in a variety of situations:

  • During diaper changes, especially after particularly messy ones. Omumsie's Micellar Cleansing Water is especially helpful in these situations.
  • When travelling or on vacation. Omumsie's No Rinse Cleansing Water comes in convenient 250 ml bottles that are perfect for long trips or quick cleanups.
  • When you don't have time for your baby's full hygiene routine. While micellar water can't replace a bath, it can be an effective substitute when life gets hectic.
  • If your baby has dry or eczema-prone skin. Bathing too frequently can strip your baby's skin of moisture, so using Omumsie's No Rinse Soothing Cleansing Water can help keep their skin clean and hydrated between baths.

Micellar Water As A Makeup Remover

While we've focused mostly on how Omumsie's Micellar Cleansing Water can be used to care for and cleanse your baby's skin, it's also a great option for makeup removal. It's perfect for use in a pinch when you're out and about and unable to give your face a proper cleansing.

However, when you're at home, we recommend thoroughly removing your makeup and using your regular facial cleanser, especially if you wear a lot of makeup. Micellar water can be a great addition to your established face care routine, but it shouldn't replace your regular cleansing routine.

Other Ways To Use Micellar Water

As you can see, there are numerous ways to use Omumsie's Micellar Cleansing Water beyond just cleansing your baby's skin and removing your makeup!

For instance, this versatile product can be used to freshen up after a workout or to clean your hands when soap and water aren't available. You can also use it as a facial toner or to clean your makeup brushes.

Who knew that micellar water could be so useful? And the best part is that it works its magic naturally, gently, and safely!

Speaking of natural, gentle, and safe ways to cleanse your and your baby's skin, let's discuss a few other options for when it's bath time at home. After all, while micellar water is great in a pinch, it's always good to have other natural products on hand for everyday use.


Natural Cleansing Products

One of the recommended natural cleansing products is the Organic baby body wash & baby shampoo with Oats and Aloe. This sulfate-free hair and body wash is made with 97.5% naturally derived ingredients and is gentle enough to cleanse your child's skin without stripping it of its natural oils. It's suitable for children of all ages, including adults.

Our Gentle Cleansing baby wash and Gentle baby Shampoo are recommended for babies with normal skin, eczema-prone skin. It contains shea butter to soothe and soften irritated skin, sunflower oil distillate to maintain the skin's moisture barrier, and plant-based glycerin to lock in moisture for long-term relief.

On the other hand, Omumsie baby soap effectively cleanses the body while soothing sensitive, rashy, or reactive skin. The chemical-free formula helps relieve bothersome symptoms of very sensitive skin, like tingling and tightness.

Regardless of your baby's skin type, there's a suitable cleanser available to make bathtime a fun and relaxing experience.


Micellar Water For You And Your Little One

It's clear that micellar water is a versatile and convenient skincare product that can be used for a variety of purposes, from cleansing your baby's skin to removing your makeup. Omumsie Organic no rinse Micellar Water with Olive Oil and Aloe is the best skincare product for your daily need.
