To do so we’ve developed a range of synergistic topical formulas, which, combined with holistic, actionable advice based on peer-reviewed studies, present what we believe is the most effective and side-effect free solution to most skin conditions. We spend very little on advertising and marketing and with a low overhead, we reinvest almost all the profit made back into research.
We’re collaborating with a handful of skincare professionals, notably Dr Angela Hunt, a naturopathic doctor who sees a lot of patients with skin issues that are not helped by conventional drugs.
My teenage daughter and I have been using this cleanser for the last few months. I have used Skin By Pom's Benzoyl Peroxide lotion to control my acne for the last few years. I love that this brand creates effective products using minimal ingredients.
My daughter loves this cleanser, she says it helps keep her breakouts to a minimum - it doesn't completely eradicate her pimples, but it helps to lessen them.
On a recent trip, my daughter had to bring a different cleanser with her. When she came back home, she told me that she did not like the other cleanser as much, she said it dried out her skin and made her breakout. She much prefers the CLNS cleanser, it doesn't dry out her skin and it controls her breakouts.
CLNS Green Tea and Lactic Acid Cleanser removes makeup fairly well, you still need to use something to remove your eye makeup, but it effectively cleans the foundation off my skin.
This cleanser lasts a long time, we have used it for 3 months and still have half of a bottle left. You only need a little bit to clean your whole face. It has a light lather and doesn't leave my skin feeling dry or tight.
Scent and Texture
A light herbal scent with a slightly runny texture.
This cleanser has a light lather. I use about 2-3 pumps of product morning and night.

Decyl Glucoside is a gentle yet effective natural coconut derived surfactant that effectively cleans, but doesn't strip your skin of its healthy fats.
Is rich in minerals and inherently anti-bacterial. Used at the same concentration as seawater to mimic its skin healing effects.
Lactic Acid reduces pH to 3, helping to gently exfoliate the skin and slow bacterial growth.
Organic sencha green tea and a proprietary botanical extract blend gives it anti-oxidant properties and a natural green tint.
