About the product
What Is It:
This cult favorite, K-Beauty Award-winning, mildly acidic gel cleanser purifies skin without stripping or irritation to maintain a healthy skin barrier. Great for all skin types, including dry and acne-prone, this cleanser with a pH similar to skin’s natural pH level (5.0-6.0) — a vital first step to getting the skin you really want — helps control oil and breakouts with tea tree oil and BHA, while the soothing gel texture won’t strip or irritate sensitive, dry skin.
Why a low pH cleanser? It may be the key to all your skin woes. Read more about why a low pH cleanser is a vital step in your skincare routine here.
