About the product
What Is It:
What’s the #1 tenet in the K-Beauty bible? Thou shalt protect thy moisture barrier!
Whether you’re a longtime K-beauty hobbyist or new to Korean skincare, there’s one thing you should be doing: using a pH balanced, slightly acidic water-based cleanser for your second cleanse, and PURITO Defence Barrier pH Cleanser is just what you need.
If you’re looking for a gentle, effective, well formulated cleanser that will keep the skin’s pH at the ideal 4.5 to 6 pH range, the Defence Barrier pH Cleanser comes in at a perfect 5.5 to do exactly that. It removes water-based dirt and debris without stripping your skin, all while maintaining the moisture barrier of your skin.
What’s the difference between Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser and other high pH products? Highly alkaline soap or cleansers strip the skin’s moisture barrier, resulting in irritation, sensitivity and dryness. That creates the perfect storm for breakouts! In sharp contrast, Purito Defence Barrier’s low pH formula is made with healing Centella asiatica, tea tree oil, royal jelly extract, and hydrolyzed collagen. The low pH formulation along with the soothing, skin beneficial ingredients helps to control oil, boost healing, fight bacteria, hydrate, and soothe skin as it removes every last bit of residue from the day. You’re left with clean soft skin, and most importantly, your moisture barrier intact!
Breaking out? Reactive? Dry and flaky? If you’ve tried everything and nothing’s worked, it just may be your cleanser. A water-based cleanser with a pH of about 5.5 is a must for anyone looking to make a real difference in your skin. Find out why here.

Deriving its name from the English word “purity” and the Chinese character for “soil” (土), PURITO wants to be open and transparent about what its customers are putting on their skin. To that end, they utilize pure and natural ingredients derived from the earth, ensuring that their ingredients are EWG Green (safe) and toxin/chemical-free whenever possible. Aware of the “green-washing” going on in the beauty industry, PURITO aims to be open and honest with its customers, providing products that are truly natural and safe, even for a child’s skin. One example is their use of purified water instead of extract water, which can sometimes irritate sensitive skin types.
PURITO also doesn’t believe that fancy packaging or expensive marketing or spokesmodels are indicative of a great skincare product, so they spend their money on the formulation and ingredients, not “appearance.” They strive to use eco-friendly packaging, they never test on animals, and they believe in making great skincare affordable so everyone can use it.
