A micellar water is a special product in the beauty routine for men . A product that is very little used by men because many believe that its micellar water is reserved as a make-up remover. Well not only.

Micellar water is water loaded with fine particles called micelles. Micelles are particles of surfactants (surfactants are water-soluble molecules that aggregate at the interfaces between water and other poorly water-soluble substances, in particular fatty substances present on our skin) .
