Cleansing the skin with Imperial Peony

For thousands of years, Imperial Peony has been recognized for its soothing properties, making it the perfect solution for gently cleansing your skin!

The dangers of poorly cleansed skin

Although you probably know the answer, let’s start by asking one very basic question—why is it so important to cleanse your skin both morning and evening?
The skin is constantly exposed to environmental aggressors, leaving it covered in residue such as pollution or dust. This results in the formation of free radicals, which damage cells and suffocate the skin, causing premature aging, imperfections and a dull complexion.
At night, skin works hard to repair damaged cells and eliminate the waste that pollutes it from the inside out.
Cleansing your skin both morning and night is an essential step in any beauty routine, simply because it is the secret to healthy, balanced skin. Jowaé’s make-up removal products take things one step further by focusing on restoring the skin’s balance for a healthy, glowing complexion!

Why Imperial Peony?

Considered to be the queen of flowers, Imperial Peony is used for its emollient and soothing properties.” (Professor Ki Hyun Kim)

Peony is a perennial plant native to the Far East.
And, because it’s always interesting to know the story behind a name, we thought we’d share this one with you. The Peony owes its name to Paeon who, in Greek mythology, was known as the physician of the Gods. After healing Ares and Hades using a mixture of plants, Paeon was assassinated by Asclepuios, the God of Healing and was then transformed into a plant capable of producing the most magnificent flowers: the Peony!
Another interesting fact: as early as 1500, under the Ming dynasty, the Peony was included in the book of traditional Chinese medicine because it was found to have exceptional properties.

Indeed, this particular plant is rich in paeoniflorine, responsible for its soothing properties, which among other things, can help impede contact hypersensitivity. The Peony is also known for its emollient properties and for its anti-bacterial properties, mainly because it controls bacterial growth on the surface of the skin.

Choosing the best Imperial Peony cleanser for you

There are two types to choose from—each made for a specific skin type.

Both are made with Imperial Peony, combined with JOWAÉ’s patented Antioxidant Lumiphenols, which help rebalance skin subjected to daily aggressors. Along with these two key ingredients, each product contains ingredients made specifically for different skin types.

You’ll instantly see the results: skin is clean and free of make-up, impurities and excess sebum, leaving it looking fresh and radiant, and ready for the next steps in your skincare routine.

The second option, which is ideal for normal to dry skin, is the Soothing Cleansing Milk: 96% of the Milk’s ingredients are of natural origin and it effortlessly removes impurities and make-up while preventing skin from drying out.
Great for sensitive skin too, removing all traces of make-up on both the face and eyes!
No need for rinsing—in fact, leaving it on keeps your skin nourished with Sunflower and Jojoba Oil, and hydrated with Vegetable Glycerine.
