CLEAN POTION: 5-in-1 Cleansing Treatment
For absolute freshness Clean Potion is cold-processed in very limited small batches to offer the most potent 5-in-1 purification for exquisite translucence and unparalleled comfort.
THE CLEAN POTION DIFFERENCE
Even if you think you are happy with your cleanser, we invite you try Clean Potion for at least a week so you can begin to see and feel the difference a truly ideal cleanser can make for the first time.
From acne to lines, many skin issues can begin with or are aggravated by improper skincare. Proper cleansing is one of the most important (but often overlooked) steps in skincare. Although cleanser remains on your skin for a short time, if skin-damaging ingredients are used repetitively, it eventually becomes a problem for skin health that can lead to a myriad of skin concerns including acne, dermatitis, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles.
Currently, nearly all foaming, cream and even many oil facial cleansers on the market break down or remove crucial barriers responsible for healthy skin. These include the hydrolipidic barrier, essential for protection against external aggressors and irritants, and the important microbiome - the good bacteria and good natural oils on your skin that help to keep skin's protective barrier strong and keep skin comfortable & healthy. If your skin feels squeaky clean or powder-smooth after washing your face (whether from cleansers or exfoliants), you've already weakened your skin barriers and stripped your skin.
Even naturally-derived oils with no surfactants that require washcloths for removal can put skin out of balance. Many we have seen do not have a proper balance of linoleic and oleic acids which can be a problem if you use the wrong ones for acne-prone skin or irritated, compromised skin.
Although in many cases the damage does not show right away, habitually compromised skin becomes weaker, less able to hold moisture, stressed and more vulnerable to breakouts, rough skin texture, blotchy or uneven tone, lines and other signs of environmental damage.
We believe in using less to do more and developed Clean Potion as an all-in-one cleansing solution that actually helps provide special care for your skin's crucial protective barriers during the cleansing process. At the same time, it easily dissolves water-resistant sunscreen, long-wear makeup and thoroughly lifts pollutants to rinse clean. Skin is infused with an anti-inflammatory blend of oils to help soothe the look of redness and irritation. Nature's own antimicrobial and sebum-regulators help to visibly calm excess oil & breakouts. A very precise combination of omega & EFA levels help promote a more balanced look and feel - whether your skin is more prone to dryness or has oily skin concerns. Skin is ideally cleansed, nourished, and in a receptive state for treatments to follow. Day after day, skin feels stronger and looks more balanced with calmness and clarity.
THE CLEANSING RITUAL
This complete multi-phase, oil-to milky foam cleanser removes the need for extra eye, lip and face makeup remover, second cleanser, softener, and toner. The elimination of excess steps in the cleansing process helps to prevent harm from excessive stress to delicate skin.
We suggest using 1 dropper, if used in the morning without makeup, and 2-3 droppers for evening cleansing to remove makeup, pollutants or other impurities that may have accumulated throughout the day. Begin by spreading the precious cleansing blend evenly on dry skin and lightly massage. Wet your hands and massage well again without pulling the skin. The addition of water transforms the silky blend of oils into a comforting, light milky foam as it thoroughly removes makeup and impurities from the skin. The more impurities that are on your skin, the milker it becomes to lift them away. Rinse clean with lukewarm water. No washcloth needed. While this cleanser is formulated to cleanse thoroughly the first time, if you wish, you can repeat without worry about drying out or stripping your skin. Skin is left ideally clean and ready to better receive the benefits of the next steps in your skincare ritual.
Luxurious, that's how this cleanser feels on my skin! I love how it cleans without stripping my skin. When I had questions about how much to use, Brendan reached out immediately to answer and advise me. I am confident in the quality and science behind this product because Brendan had devoted his life to improving skincare products. Thank you for providing high quality skincare!
This is my new favorite cleanser... I have rosacea and washing with this soothes it instantly. My skin LOVES this potion- it feels soft, looks plump, and GLOWS after each use... and never feels dried out or stripped. I am a nurse and this is helping so much with the maskne I've been getting during COVID. And the handwritten thank-you card from Brendan meant so much. Ladies and gentlemen you are worth this- buy it ASAP!
Been using this potion for about a month now. My face is super soft, doesn’t feel tight or dry, and I’m not experiencing any redness - huge relief for my sensitive, acne-prone skin.
Cleansing and nourishing at the same time.
I really put it through the wringer when I wore a full face of makeup this week (lots of eyeshadow, liner, and mascara). All melted away after one wash - no extra eye makeup remover or towel wiping needed!
Bonus: smells like a nutty vegan cookie and I am HERE FOR IT.
Lex & Jong always gets it right.
I have to admit I was skeptical but I love love love this product. I have rosacea and it has diminished significantly over just a few weeks, actually from the first time I used it . The fine lines around my eyes, forehead and lips have diminished quite a bit as well. Frankly I had given up on that ever happening 😊 I am still experimenting with how much to use and have concluded that it is dependent on multiple factors, such as how much I am outside and how warm the day is and if I have worn sunscreen or makeup. Love waking up with soft, clean skin.
I have been having issues with dry damaged skin for almost a year. I've tried several products, including several from House of Vartan that have worked to a degree. Now, I have found THE cleanser that works for me. It's step 2 in my daily regimen. First, I use HD Smoothing Scrub followed by Clean Potion. The last step is to apply Optimal Response Firming Repair Moisturizer. As a 50 year old who still gets compliments on my skin, I swear by these products!
