CLNS 1.4
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 and effective

After years of using a leading acne line, I discovered this brand and found that acne products do not need to be harsh, either physically or chemically. This cleanser feels so good! It gently exfoliates without the plastic beads and strong perfumes of other products.


This is one of the very few face products that I've used the whole thing and bought another one. I will probably always use this cleanser. It's wonderful! I had severe adult / hormonal acne on my jawline that was just awful. I was looking for something more natural that worked without all the harmful chemicals that cause havoc on my hormones in the first place! Found this, and after reading the reviews gave it a shot. I'm so glad I did! Whole line is great! I do the oil cleansing method to remove makeup, then use this to wash away the remaining traces and in the morning.

love it

been using this consistently for about two years. it's been a fantastic cleanser and it has been improved during that time to have a gentle, herbal, fresh-cut-grass smell. i find it doesn't dry my skin out (i have fairly normal skin... early 30s) and i have seen a dramatic reduction in blemishes and improvement in skin texture in combination with the retin product. would definitely recommend.

Great for removing mineral makeup, non drying

Really like this. A little goes a long way. Nice texture, enough foaming action to feel like it's working but BEST of all it really, and easily, removes mineral makeup - something my last natural cleanser couldn't do. Skin feels clean but not tight or dry after. A+ I am personally a fan of natural essential oil fragrances and I would be delighted with a version of this that has something pretty smelling in it but only if PURE essential oil is used.

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).

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).
