Finding the right cleanser for your skin

Finding the right cleanser for your skin

You may have been able to get away with that inexpensive Grocery or Drugstore cleanser in your 20's and 30's, but post 50 you will find these type cleansers are a mistake.  
Your facial cleanser should always be chosen with the utmost care.  It's the foundation of your skin care routine. It should be right for your skin and its needs.
Does your skin feel tight, and dry after washing? You want to opt for a cleanser that's ultra-gentle and hydrates as it cleans. On the flip side, some of us have oily skin or blemish prone skin.  Look for a product that cleanses pores deeply without stripping the skin.
Using the right cleanser doesn't just clean your skin, it thoroughly prepares it to absorb the serums, moisturizers, and other treatments you should be using immediately afterward. It maximizes their effectiveness.
Why we love our two cleansers:
  gentle cleanser, natural, organic, honey, sensitive skin, dry skin, make up remover, toxin free, EWG verified, approved, NO SLS
Our gentle cleanser appeals to those with normal to the most sensitive skin. One of the key ingredients in Creme Fraiche Cleanser is organic Honey.  The sugars in honey act as natural humectants and emollients that increase the water content and reduce dryness in the skin even after they have been washed off.

Honey also contains proteins, amino acids, vitamins, enzymes, minerals, and probiotics. The high antioxidants and powerful botanical compounds neutralize wrinkle-causing free radicals on the skin surface and deep within tissue before they cause damage.

Ingredient Super Stars
  • organic honey
  • organic oatstraw extract
  • hydrolyzed wheat protein
  • pro-vitamin B5
What's NOT in our cleanser--

No Sodium Lauryl Sulfates (SLS), Sulfites, Artificial fragrances, Phthalates.

anti blemish cleanser, acne gel, activated charcoal, oily skin face wash, toxin free, sensitive skin, EWG verified, approved No SLS    
The beauty of our cleanser for oily skin is it's ability to cleanses pores deeply without stripping skin of the natural oils we need.  The more we try to "dry out" oils on our face, the more our bodies want to produce oil.  It's a vicious cycle.  

Activated Charcoal is the secret ingredient in our Anti-blemish cleanser and what gives it the cool pale gray color. 

Used in a cleanser or mask, activated charcoal absorbs toxins, pollutants, and can pull the unwanted excess oils from your skin, without soaking up the healthy oils and moisture your skin needs. It's Certified Vegan, too!

Toxin FREE: 

No Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfates, Artificial fragrances. Phthalate-Free. Gluten-free. 
Are you stuck in a rut with your cleanser?  Why do you like the one you use? Have you considered trying something new?

See what people are saying!

My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
