Description

Get your best skin back with the Gallinée Cleansing Bar

Get your best skin back with the Gallinée Cleansing Bar The Face & Body Cleansing Bar is made from gentle cleansing actives in a solid form, called a Syndet.
Our scientifically formulated complex of prebiotics and lactic acid nourishes and protects your skin’s good bacteria while eliminating the bad. Leaves your skin looking radiant, while cleansing, soothing, and nourishing it.

Gentle enough for face and body.
Suitable for sensitive skin and even skin prone to eczema.

Plastic-free cleanser - no bottles or plastic wrap!

Marie’s word, founder of Gallinée:
“The product I love the most because it was so hard to make. But it was worth the pain, it’s literally the best soap (without soap) that you’ll ever use. I use it to wash my face, body and …downstairs garden. Plastic-free and much more sustainable than shower gel, that goes without saying.”

Key Ingredients

PREBIOTICS: A mix of ultra-gentle fibres and sugars that feed your skin’s good bacteria and help support the skin’s barrier, with an antibacterial action against bad bacteria.

LACTIC ACID: The gentlest of AHAs, lactic acid helps the skin to stay at its optimal pH level and has hydrating and softening properties. Gallinée uses a slow-release form to suit even sensitive skin.

PHYSIOLOGICAL PH: All Gallinée products are made to match the optimal pH of the skin and the microbiome.

WITHOUT: Doesn’t contain soap, colourants, parabens, mineral oils, silicones, microbeads, phenoxyethanol or methylisothiazolinone.

Usage

Ideal for face and body. Wet the Cleansing Bar and lather in the palm of your hands. Massage into damp skin and rinse. Can either be used as part of your shower routine to cleanse your whole body or as you wash your face in the morning or evening.

RESULTS: Soothes, Softens, and cleanses the skin.

She has always preferred using face soap bars rather then foam, cream or gel washes from tubes etc and She really loves it. So much so that nearly half of it has gone within two weeks. When i dropped into see her last. She offered me to try it to wash my hands so i could see just how nice it was and i can tell you its the nicest soap on the skin and i do not usually use soap bars as i find them very drying. This though! It feels creamy with a really nice light lather and my hands felt so soft after with a slight glow . Its completely different to normal soap bars . My Mums skin has started to look really smooth and brighter, especially all round her nose and cheeks and she told me that she likes it that much she keeps using it to wash her hands. I am actually going to buy her another bar for easter. Its definitely worth the money. Its so nice you have to try it to know just how nice it is. I’m so glad i found this Company online.

It’s so good. I have ended up using it for my whole body and then face and now even my hair which it leaves really soft. It’s soap but not like soap I’ve used before, obviously high quality, not drying, cleanses but feels neutral for your skin. It feels good to just use one product to wash instead of 3 or 4 and will enable me to ditch the plastic.

I feel so clean and nourished after this. I had put off trying this as I wasn't sure about probiotic skincare and the lack of 'soap' in this product but I have never felt so refreshed and clean. There is a lovely delicate, elegant scent and it works well to clean all areas, including armpits, intimate areas and feet. I haven't yet used it as a face wash as I only have one bar. Six hours later I am still feeling and smelling clean and my skin doesn't feel tight at all, it feels nourished, soft and healthy.My only gripe is that the bar is reducing in size rapidly so won't last long. Maybe a bigger bar for the cost?

Purchased the body set which included this soap and still can’t believe how gentle it is on my skin. My experience with cleansing bars has always been my skin screaming for instant moisture the minute I rinse off. Generally, my go ~ to cleanse my body is always shower creams and shower oils because most products dry me out further. When I got this bar I was going to use this solely for my hands but I got curious and so happy I gave it a shot left me surprised. It’s non stripping and creates a rich fragrant foam which leaves my skin feeling silky and comfortable. It’s fantastic to use as a shaving medium, removes any sweat odor from underarms and body cream/oil residue. It’s also extremely gentle to use as an intimate cleanser without any irritation whatsoever. I love it’s peek~ a ~ boo box and fantastic ingredients. Love the square shape which is great for petite hands. I just wish this bar was thicker in size as it’s quite thin and for body use a thicker size would be ideal.’

I’ve used it several times now and I really like it! I’ve never liked the idea of using soap on my face - but this stuff is different. It does not dry my face one bit - it actually adds moisture. I also will use it on my body and lady bits which keeps your pH balance in check :) overall great buy and would buy again.

This did not! It makes a nice thick foam that rinses clean, and makes my skin feel... normal, instead of dry or irritated like other washes have. I also love that it’s a bar, trying to reduce my plastic consumption. Win-win in my opinion!

Read moreDe-sensitizes extremely sensitive skin while cleaning absolutely everything off Every single other sensitive skin foaming bar burns and dries out my face, except this. Also removed all traces of makeup and debris. Made my skin feel better and less sensitive in general after only one use. A one in a million product for extremely sensitive skin that doesn't feel good with most products claimed as being good for sensitive skin.

It's even, blemish free and has its radiance back. I suffer from perioral dermatitis and have had no more flare ups since using this soap. The foam is luxurious and I've started using it in the shower now, it leaves my skin unbelieveably soft. I've even started using it on my son who suffers from eczema. What a great product! I'll never use anything else.

Why a bar without soap? 

Soap is really drying for your skin: it dissolves oil and sebum. But your skin needs sebum – it protects the microbiome and keeps the skin soft and supple. If you strip all the oil off your skin, one of two things will happen:

  • Your skin will get all dry and scaly, or 
  • It will increase its sebum production, in order to compensate, and you’ll end up with extra-oily skin and/or breakouts.
  • Long term it can even lead to eczema when the skin barrier gets too damaged.

That’s why Gallinée decided to develop a Cleansing Bar without soap, very gentle for your skin and kind to the environment. On top of that, it’s plastic-free!

Can I use this Cleansing Bar for my face and body?

Our Cleansing Bar is a soap without soap and a must-have at Gallinée. It’s very gentle and helps you to keep your skin pH balanced as the Cleansing Bar is at a 5.8 pH. It only has 0.3% of perfume. 

It’s a convenient product as it can be used both on the body skin and the face! It also has been tested on most sensitive skins and skin prone to eczema with great success.

Why is there perfume in this Cleansing Bar?

We included a low level of perfume in our products so that using them is a pleasure range and because probiotics sometimes smell a bit like… yoghurt! But we chose a mostly synthetic perfume in order to lessen the risks of a reaction as certain perfumes can make the most sensitive skins react. Essential oils, in particular, are quite allergenic, more than synthetic perfumes. Our products with perfume have a really low amount of it, 0.3% for example for our Cleansing Bar. And you will not find any fragrance in products intended to remain on the face without being rinsed off. 

Our Cleansing bar is still extremely gentle and can be used on very sensitive skin. We even made a perfume-free version!

Is the Cleansing Bar free from phthalates?

Yes, our Cleansing Bar is free from phthalates. You can check all the ingredients present in the Cleansing Bar (including the fragrance) on the packaging and on our website in the product description. All potential allergens are also registered in the INCI list.

Is it suitable for rosacea-prone skin?

Unfortunately, we have not tested our products specifically for rosacea so we always recommend checking with your GP first.. This soft cleanser has been tested on most sensitive skins and atopy-prone skins with great success.

Can I use the Cleansing Bar on babies/children?

The Cleansing Bar in the Perfume Free version can indeed be used for babies and children, as it is so gentle.
