CLNS Clearing Cleanser
Lactic Acid & Sea Salt

Our mild, coconut-derived cleanser effectively dissolves dirt and excess oil to reveal soft, hydrated skin. Its blend of sea salt and lactic acid provides gentle exfoliation and stops the growth of acne-causing bacteria. By stimulating ceramide synthesis, it strengthens the skin’s barrier, helping it retain more moisture. Organic green tea acts as an antioxidant, giving CLNS its signature lime tint.

  • Face & body.  
    Directions 1. Gently massage into wet skin and wash off with warm water twice daily. Use a wash cloth for extra exfoliation, leave on 1 minute for deeper cleansing.

    2. Pat dry the skin with a towel before applying other products.

    Not for removing heavy makeup. Expect visible results in 2 weeks.

My new favorite facial cleanser!

The Clns facial cleanser is AMAZING! Cleans completely without over drying. My skin actually feels moisturized after using it! I love the texture and the fact that there are only natural preservatives.

Love love love.

I’ve been using this cleanser for a couple of years now, and I love it. Both my husband and adult daughter use and love it as well.

One- whether it’s recommended or not I don’t actually know, but I use it to clean my entire face, including eye makeup. It’s gentle, but does a great job removing makeup as well as mascara and liquid eyeliner, without burning my eyes.

Two- (slightly off-topic) about a year ago, I switched to Lumé deodorant, which will *only* work for me because I also use CLNS in the shower on my pits beforehand as a antibacterial soap, (but without the yucky ingredients)!! It’s seriously a game changer in that department. I am a hair stylist, so I have my arms up all day, couldn’t do it w/o this power combo.

I have had to address my 40-something, sensitive, acne-prone skin primarily through diet and natural hormone support, but CLNS is the most favorite cleanser I’ve ever used. It never leaves me feeling too dry, so I feel my skin’s natural barriers stay intact—leaving it neither too dry, nor overly sensitive.

Been using this for years and I don't plan on changing to anything else. Works great for my skin and isn't too harsh. Great product!

Science

Artboard 1Cleanser pH 5.5Soap pH 10Acne reduction (4 weeks) 2%40%23%-5%Irritation rate (4 weeks)Soap vs Cleansers for Acne

Low pH cleansers reduce acne, while soap increases acne. Non-inflammatory acne decreased 11% in the cleanser group. The study concludes that soap is irritating and should be avoided for facial cleansing (1995 Korting).

Acne-causing bacteria can only grow when pH is over 4. Hence, in a cleanser, a pH of 3.5 is likely ideal to help reduce bacterial growth. Acne sufferers have also been found to have abnormally high skin pH (2017 Prakash).

Compared to two of the most commonly used detergents, decyl glucoside is considered only slightly irritating, and one of the least irritating detergents on the market (2007 Mehling).
