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.

    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.

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).
