Why we love it: It creates a perfect step between cleansing and caring for your skin! A toner that is purifying, soothing and reparative, pores look smaller, skin brighter. It is high tech for a toner. Gallinée has 2 patents on it.
The face vinegar acts as a pivot between what you remove from the skin surface when you cleanse and what you replenish it with afterwards. This special toner contains actibiome, a novel prebiotic that works to calm stressed skin and prevent it from further irritations alongside postbiotics that allow the skin’s beneficial bacteria to flourish. The second active is hibiscus vinegar, extracted from the hibiscus flower that’s native to Central America, the vinegar improves skin in three distinct ways:
Purification: rich in acetic acid, with astringent properties, to gently dislodge dirt and unhealthy bacteria. Another important ingredient is tannins, which has been found to regulate sebum.
Protection: full of antioxidants that help stop free radicals from attacking and degrading skin cells. Oxidative stress is reduced so the skin can remain protected from external ageing factors.
Proliferation: a recognised AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), the gentle exfoliating action stimulates cell renewal for a smoother, refined finish. It also helps minimise the appearance of blemish scarring.

Hibiscus Vinegar: known for its astringent, exfoliating and soothing properties.
Algae Prebiotics: a brand new ingredient using extracts from green and brown algae, sea water and marine polysaccharides. Together they act against signs of stress on the skin.
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 ones.
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.
This face vinegar acts like a toner. Once any unhealthy bacteria has been cleansed away, this purifies and eliminates dead skin cells that could inhibit the absorption of the extra ingredients and healthy bacteria about to be left on skin from serums and creams. To be used morning and night, soak a cotton pad in the vinegar and swipe across cleansed skin, avoiding the eyes.
