This delicate and well-balanced formula with its rich long-lasting foam provides a gentle and effective cleansing for a variety of skin types, while respecting the barrier function of the epidermis. The formula is a synergistic combination of delicate surfactants derived from oat (Avena Sativa) lipoamino acids designed to selectively cleanse impurities from the skin without stripping the lipid barrier. This sebo-normalizing activity helps reduce the appearance of irritation associated with traditional cleansers while leaving the skin’s protective barrier intact.
In addition, aloe leaf juice, provides hydration and a multitude of nourishing plant compounds, while hydrolyzed corn starch & beet root extract help increase the skin’s concentration of natural moisturizing factors (NMF) for a long-lasting moisturizing effect.
For those with “dry” skin, you may experience a short transition period, or skin ‘tightening’ effect, as your skin adjusts to a new cleanser. We recommend reducing the frequency & duration of cleansing to suit your comfort level, until the transition has passed.
For those with "oily" skin, you may wish to double-cleanse for an extra squeaky clean feeling.
The Clarifying Cream and Gentle Foaming Cleanser were tested under the control of a dermatologist. These products have produced no signs of continuous irritation nor of skin sensitization. They are therefore considered non-irritant and hypoallergenic.
Can your products be used on all skin types?

A good practice before incorporating a new product into your routine, is to conduct a 24 hr patch test. Here's an easy way to help predict if you will have a negative initial reaction to a new product.
Apply a small amount of the product onto a clean area of skin on the upper forearm.
Keep the area dry.
After 24 hours rinse the area.
If any redness, burning, itching, blistering or irritation is observed at any time throughout the test, do not use the product.
Is your product gluten-free?
Yes. The ingredients in our Gentle Foaming Cleanser are gluten-free. We have tested for gluten in our final product and it is not present.
