Gentle Cleansing Gel



A hydrating, oil-free and soap-free milky gel to gently cleanse without stripping or disrupting the skin's delicate acid mantel. (pH approx. 5.5)

With congestion-prone and sensitive skin, harsh cleansers and over-exfoliation can cause long-term damage to the skin.  Focusing on supporting your skin's inflammatory response will help reduce breakouts and prevent scarring when eruptions do occur.

Soothing, fresh-distilled hydrosols of chamomile and cold-processed aloe calm redness while mild astringents of green tea hydrosol work to strengthen pores but do not inhibit natural, healthy oil production.

Clarifying whole-plant extracts of meadowsweet, licorice, and willow bark elevate the blend to target active congestion within the sebaceous glands and reduce reactivity to provide comfort.

Collectively, a botanical-focused cleansing formula to maintain a clear, fresh, and hydrated complexion.  Suitable for all skin types.

Slight formula adjustment as of July 2023, see the Ingredients section for details.  The notable change is to replace a now discontinued ingredient from our supplier: sodium lauroyl oat amino acids with coco-glucoside (non-GMO, sugar derived, bio-degradable, and suitable for ultra-sensitive skin).

Thoroughly massage a quarter size of the product on wet skin paying attention to congested areas. The product rinses clean but some may find improved results when used with a washcloth to wipe away excess water-resistant makeup.

Complete the Routine

Developed to be used with an Elixir to enhance the cleansing experience and support better absorption of facial oils and serums.  To use, saturate a cotton pad and sweep the skin.
