X Cleanser Shop Now Cleanser has the exact same ingredients as always. However, I was able to increase the amount of foam it produces by increasing the amount of a couple of cleansing/foaming ingredients in the formula. The more foam you generate, the more your hands can glide along your skin as you wash, which creates less physical irritation.

I also increased the amount of extracts (Sage Extract, Cucumber Extract, White Oak Bark Extract) in the formula. Sage Extract helps fight inflammation, Cucumber Extract calms the skin, and White Oak Bark Extract helps with cleansing & astringency, so with increased amounts of each you should notice an overall more soothing cleansing experience.

You may notice a slight change in the scent of the Cleanser as well. This comes from the fact that I increased the amount of all of the above ingredients, particularly the extracts. It’s still fragrance-free but it may have a slightly more noticeable scent.


Feedback from Volunteer Product Testers
I sent samples of this Cleanser formula out to my volunteer product testers, and so far the consensus is that most people can get away with using only 1 pump of this increased foaming Cleanser with The Regimen. I’ve changed The Regimen directions to reflect that feedback. As more feedback comes in, that may need to change again, so we’ll see. Please let me know how it goes for you, and if you’d like to be a volunteer product tester, email me and I’ll put you on the waiting list. Cleanser

You can now use 1 pump (nickel size amount). Read More



When treating acne, the first step is to cleanse the skin. Cleansing removes oil, dirt, and pollution so that the treatment you apply can effectively penetrate. However, cleansing should be performed correctly, with only bare hands, using a featherlight touch for 10 seconds or less. This might seem fast, but any form of skin irritation can make acne worse, so it is vitally important to stay gentle and brief when washing your skin.

I made this generously sized, ultra-gentle liquid cleanser so we would have a pH-balanced cleanser which doesn’t overdry and is gentle enough for people with sensitive, acne-prone skin. It also lathers extremely well, which helps reduce drag on the skin, further helping to prevent irritation.

It is also unscented and dye-free. Fragrances and dyes can sometimes irritate the skin, and since irritation can lead to acne, it’s best to opt for unscented and dye-free products.

Does it take off makeup?

Yes, it works at removing foundation, BB/CC cream, powder, blush, and bronzer. For long-wearing makeup, lipstick, and eye makeup, Moisturizer or Organic Jojoba Oil may be a better choice.

How do I use it to shave? Cleanser is an ideal shaving “cream.” Dispense a quarter-size amount into your palm and get a nice thick lather going. Apply the lather as you would shaving cream and off you go. It’s as good or better than almost all shaving creams/gels/foams/soaps and helps you avoid potentially irritating ingredients in these products. See the guide to shaving for more detailed instructions.
