Founder's Note

“Cleansers always broke me out, left a residue, or stripped my skin. I was looking for something gentle enough for all skin types, but effective enough to remove makeup. As simple as it is, The Cleanse checks all of those boxes and more.”

— Sasha

Behind the Bottle

We design packaging with the planet in mind. Instead of glass—which would increase our carbon footprint—we chose HDPE (high-density polyethylene) and PP (polypropylene) plastics that are easy to recycle.

  1. Rinse the bottle, cap, and pump thoroughly.

  2. Place bottle + cap in your recycling bin.**

  3. Recycle the pump through Pact Collective. Download your free shipping label.

*Bottle only. **Curbside recycling programs vary by location. Check local guidelines for more information.

The Cleanse FAQ

Will The Cleanse remove my makeup and sunscreen?

Yes—The Cleanse is a foaming facial cleanser and makeup remover in one. It’s formulated to remove your daily makeup and mineral SPF (like Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40). To remove stubborn long-wear makeup, you may find that you need to cleanse a second time.

What skin types is it good for?

We created The Cleanse with all skin types in mind—dry, oily, sensitive, and everyone in between. It’s an intentionally simple, fragrance-free formula that cleanses effectively without drying or disrupting skin’s pH.

Can I use it morning and night?

The Cleanse is gentle enough to be used twice per day.

Does it have a scent?

Nope—The Cleanse is formulated without fragrance.

Is it vegan?

The Cleanse is vegan and certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny.

Is it safe to use around my eyes?

Yes. The Cleanse is ophthalmologist-tested and safe for sensitive eyes. It’s also suitable for contact lens wearers.

What does pH-balanced mean?

Good question. “pH-balanced” means that The Cleanse won’t change your skin’s natural pH—we clinically tested it to make sure. Skin’s happy place is a pH of about 4.5 to 5.5. If your skin’s pH becomes too high or too low, it can weaken its protective barrier and open the door to dryness, irritation—even acne. A pH-balanced cleanser is key to maintaining a healthy pH, which is why we created The Cleanse.
