  • colloidal oatmeal, a gentle exfoliant, is considered to be one of the best ingredients for oily skin types. it removes dead skin cells while smoothing, absorbs excess oil, and restores the barrier function of the skin.
  • milk protein is highly valued in skin care for its soothing and softening abilities. the lactic acid contained in milk also gently exfoliates.

scent: oatmeal

to use, wash the face with warm water and apply cleanser. massage over face and neck for one minute. rinse well with warm water and pat skin dry. for best results, follow with lotus flower & rosewater toner and jasmine serum or facial oil while skin is still damp. use morning and night. for external use only, beauty.

what is a cleansing milk?

a cleansing “milk” is a creamy cleanser with a smooth consistency. like milk, it generally does not foam upon use, as there is a very low concentration of surfactants. while we do use milk protein in this formula, a cleansing milk doesn’t necessarily contain milk.

 

will my face still get clean if the cleanser doesn’t foam?  

yes, absolutely. surfactants are contained in most cleansers as they act as detergent and wetting agents and help to thicken formulations. they can also provide a nice foam. however, these foaming surfactants can also strip the skin of its necessary oils, leaving the skin feeling tight and dry. we use a lower concentration of natural surfactants which have less tendency to foam, preserving your natural oils while cleansing.

 

what type of skin is best served by a creamy cleanser?

all skin types can use this cleanser. while it was originally created for oily skin as colloidal oatmeal helps to reduce excess sebum, we’ve discovered that the oatmeal also works as a humectant, which retains moisture in dry skin types.

 

why is the bottle plastic rather than glass like the rest of your product?

we love the elegance and sustainability of glass but find that it’s not best-suited for this cleanser. glass bottles have a smaller opening which does not accommodate the larger pump required to extrude the cleanser. our glass bottles are also smaller in size, which would limit the quantity of cleanser which can be carried. so for now, our oatmeal cleansing milk will be in a recyclable plastic bottle.

 

can men use this product?

yes, this product is safe for men, even right after shaving.  it helps to soothe freshly shaved skin, too. we’re working on a little something especially for men, so watch this space.

Soothing!!

This is one seriously soothing cleanser. I absolutely love the short and simple CLEAN ingredients. This is a great cleanser for sensitive skin. Typically my Face will appear a little red after washing it but not with this! I think this definitely helps minimize my redness. This gentle cleanser also removes makeup really well!

Such a Gentle Cleanser!

I am really enjoying this cleanser! I wasn't sure how it would. be for my skin since I'm a bit on the dryer side, however, I love using milky type cleansers in the morning to start my skincare routine. This one does not strip my skin and leaves it feeling very soft but cleansed. I was surprised to learn that it has exfoliating properties which is also great for the morning time to remove those dead skin cells which occur after your skin repairs itself at night. Overall, a really great cleanser and I'm glad I got the opportunity to try it!

Perfect every day cleanser!

I received this lovely cleanser to try and it's the perfect cleanser for every day. I have very oily skin so I hope over time this helps with that. So far I have not noticed any difference but I hope to start noticing a less oily face soon. I love the creamy feel of this cleanser and I have really enjoyed using it!
