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.

Gentle Effective Cleanser

Cleanser is gentle on sensitive skin, and when I say sensitive skin, I’m referring to skin that reacts slowly over time to other “gentle” cleaners either by excessive drying, redness, acne, etc. My teenage daughter has been using this for over a year and her skin has improved immensely overall. She not only uses it as a face wash but as a body wash as well and she loves it.

Is this the same cleanser?

First of all it really took a long tine to arrive. Next time I will order off Amazon. Secondly it is very liquidly and the color is green instead of brown and it has a much worse smell. I'm a little concerned. Last but not least when will the Salic Formula be ready?

My favorite cleanser! I’ve been using it for 1+ years and I’m not going back if I can help it. I have dry and lightly sensitive skin and this thing is perfect for me

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.

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).

Artboard 2Acne Bacteria growth vs pHP.Acnes growth in a cultured dishGrowth (24 hours)pH4.

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).
