This emerald gel cleanser is suitable for even the most sensitive skin and is gently foaming while it soothes, hydrates and deep cleanses. An innovative prebiotic complex nourishes your skin’s protective microbiome ecosystem while powerful fructose-rich actives regulate inflammation at the gene level.
FREE FROM FAKE
Containing whey proteins, A and B vitamins, minerals, moisturizing lactose, gently exfoliating lactic acid and plumping and hydrating hyaluronic acid; the gel soothes while it deep-cleanses. Perfect for daily use, this soap-free formula removes make-up, impurities, pollutants and dead skin while perfectly preparing the skin for the optimal absorption of actives.
Plus get the benefit of potent microbiome protectors!
Even if we can’t see them, more than 1000 species of microbes call the upper layer of our skin their home and new research shows that balancing our skin microbiome composition is critical in terms of healthy skin.
(Think of your skin as a delicate ecosystem. If you strip away the good while cleaning away the bad, then your skin will become inflamed and sensitive.)
To prevent this, the Cleansing Elixir contains actives rich in yogurt constituents and prebiotics extracted from chicory which support skin-friendly bacteria while discouraging the growth of barrier-disrupting, unfriendly micro-organisms (think Staph aureus which contributes to eczema).
And last, but by no means least, a super-ingredient.
Powerful fructose-rich actives cross over into the realm of cosmetogenomics by regulating the gene expression of our skin cells through its exceptional affinity for their membrane receptors. This super-ingredient not only provides intense hydration but regulates inflammation and taps into the fountain of youth by supporting the longevity of proteins.
So much more than a cleanser. Your skin deserves it.
Our exclusive complex of Chlorophyll, Malachite, Curcumin and Spirulina lightens sun spots and improves skin texture. Nothing short of extraordinary.

How to Use
THE MIRACLE OF THE DOUBLE-CLEANSE
I don’t believe it’s necessary to cleanse in the morning apart from a splash of water, but I recommend a double cleanse at night. Apply the cleanser to damp hands and gently massage over the face while it lathers for 30-60 seconds to allow the surfactants to work. Wash off with lukewarm water. Lather up again, rinse with warm water and gently dry the skin. If you are using the MultiMasker, use the Cleansing Elixir for the first cleanse and the MultiMasker for the second cleanse.
