It’s truly a multitasking must-have!
To prevent breakouts on the body: CLn Sportwash

Designed for athletes, this antibacterial body wash purifies the skin of bacteria and unclogs pores to prevent back and chest breakouts.
Pro Tip: Hop into the shower after a workout, work it into a rich lather and let it sit on the skin for a few minutes before rinsing.

This powerhouse product addresses a wide range of scalp and hair concerns, including an itchy scalp, clarifying the scalp of product build-up and improving microcirculation. Why is this important? It lays the foundation for healthier, stronger and thicker hair. It’s formulated with 100% essential oils, including rosemary, sage and cypress to stimulate the scalp as well as lemon and eucalyptus oils to clarify and remove impurities.
Why You Should Try It: It’s not often you find a hair product that benefits both dry and oily hair types, but this one does! Given its unique essential oil formulation, this nourishing scalp product won’t add weight to oily strands or strip moisture from dry hair.
Unlike your average H2O, micellar water is made of micelles that attract and dissolve dirt, oil and impurities, gently lifting them away without harsh rubbing or rinsing. Given its gentle formulation, micellar water is often a great choice for those with sensitive or dry skin.

In addition to the dirt-encapsulating micelles, this makeup removing cleanser is also formulated with La-Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water to soothe skin. Plus it contains zinc to remove excess oil as well as an additional cleanser that is so gentle, it’s often used in contact lens solutions.
The effects of pollution and other environmental aggressors have been established as playing a key role in accelerating aging. But, what about hair? Dust, smoke, dirt and soot take a major toll on tresses, including scalp irritation, breakage, dryness and even exacerbating hair loss. Adding a protective product to your hair care regimen shields hair from pollution. Klorane’s mist features a 95% natural origin formula and specifically protects the scalp while detoxifying, purifying and protecting hair with aquatic mint.
