What Is It:


A gentle, lightly foaming cleanser with OTC-strength 1.5% salicylic acid that tackles breakouts and inflammation without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Unlike the traditional drying acne cleansers that you grew up with, there’s no medicinal smell; rather its sudsy lather feels quite luxurious and doesn’t leave your skin feeling uncomfortably tight.


Our insight:


In additional to the BHA salicylic acid, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories keep skin calm and healthy. Rich in antioxidants, apple fruit extract not only promotes skin health but also helps smooth skin and prevent premature aging. And that dreamy blue hue? That’s all thanks to blue tansy, an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties that calms irritation, reduces inflammation (the root of all skin woes, including acne), and soothes problem skin. (It also smells just as soothing.)


How to use:


  • Massage a small amount into wet skin for about 60 seconds. Rinse well with tepid water and pat dry.
  • Use morning and night.


Ingredients:


Key Ingredients: Salicylic Acid: Part of the BHA (beta hydroxyl acid) family, salicylic acid is one of the gold standard ingredients in acne treatments. It exfoliates skin, unblocking clogged pores to remove dirt, bacteria, and buildup. It also treats acne by reducing swelling and redness. Blue Tansy: This antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredient calms irritation, reduces inflammation, and soothes skin. This ingredient is also responsible for the blue hue of the cream. Apple Fruit Extract: This antioxidant-rich ingredient promotes healthy skin and helps prevent premature aging. Ingredients: Active ingredient: Salicylic acid 1.5 % Inactive ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Stearic Acid, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Propanediol, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Coconut Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Sodium Hydroxide, Hydroxyacetophenone,Sodium Isethionate, Xanthan Gum, Menthoxypropanediol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Tanacetum Annuum Flower Oil, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Mica, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Microcitrus Australasica Fruit Extract, Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Propylene Glycol, Tin Oxide, Sodium Glycolate, Sodium Formate, Lactobacillus Extract.

Clean skin with Versed ! The Keep the Peace Acne-Calming Cream Cleanser is a game changer ! With ingredients like blue tansy, apple extract and salicylic acid, this cleanser gently exfoliates and keeps skin smooth.
I used this cleanser twice per day and followed the instructions, which state to wash and lather for 60 seconds and rinse with cool water (don’t forget your jawline!). The lather is very gentle and almost creamy. It left my skin feeling soft and clean without that squeaky, tight feeling.
After the first few uses, I did notice a few small zits emerged, which... Read more

Versed Keep the Peace Acne-Calming Cream Cleanser is a nice change of pace from what you normally think of as an acne cleanser. When I used acne cleansers in the past they were harsh, medicinal smelling awful cleansers but they dried out my breakouts so I kept using them hoping they’d help. Instead it dried my skin so bad it made my skin worse. I did not fell any of this while using this cleanser. I had a couple of breakouts while using this and it cleared them up right away without any medicinal drying feeling.... Read more

VERSED Keep The Peace Acne-Calming Cream Cleanser is a luxury cleanser without the high-end price. And a two for one product at that. (Keep reading, I'll explain) I'm so impressed with this creamy to gentle suds cleanser. The active ingredients include Salicylic acid, Blue Tandy, and Apple Fruit Extract.
This silky blue cleanser contains 1.5% of salicylic acid. This acid is usually geared towards mild to moderate acne and pimples. It works by helping the skin shed dead cells from the top layer. It decreases redness, reduces inflammation and speeds healing.
Blue Tansy also... Read more

I have tried many vitamin C serums and Versed is now my 1 and only. I love that there is no smell that lingers on my face. Also the consistency is not thick or super oily, my skin felt smooth not greasy. My skin absolutely loved it. I have oily and sensitive skin so always a little nervous using something new. I was able to see changes in my skin in 3 days. It was brighter and so smooth. I started using it morning and nights but ended just wearing it in the mornings because I use a retinal at...

Having over 30 years experience in the beauty field, I am always interested in learning about new products and innovations. I have had the opportunity to try a few of the Versed products and I was very pleased with their performance.

I struggle with acne even at 30. This face wash worked wonders for me. I was very impressed at how well it was worked. I love the gritty feeling and how the wash is more of a thick cream based. It foams very well when working it in the skin. Being a vegan based acne face wash is amazing. Who wouldn't want to give it a try. I love the fact that it smells amazing and leaves my face feeling so soothing. Being a cosmetologist for 10 plus years I haven't really focused on my skin but like I said... Read more

Very impressed with this cleanser from Versed , a clean and vegan skincare line based in Los Angeles, California. As an esthetician who struggles with acne and blemishes, I genuinely am a fan of the Keep the Peace 1.5% Salicylic Acne Cleanser as it has proven its efficacy to my skin in as little as a week. This product has 1.5% Salicylic Acid which is comedolytic, meaning it prevents future breakouts and soothes inflammation. Upon use, this product lathers nicely and does not strip my face of its natural oils. This gentle yet effective cleanser helped control a breakout I... Read more

I have been in this industry for 17 years, I own my own salon and spa and have tried many different makeup lines within. Extremely matte concealer I do wear and have a very difficult time removing it. I will say I have tried many many different lines of cleansers…. I haven’t found anything that will remove my makeup completely, and of course my skin has breakouts because of the heavy makeup and the makeup that doesn’t wash off completely. After I tried Acne Calming Cream Cleanser by Versed it has done what I’ve sought after for years! It... Read more

I tend to rotate the usage of my cleansers. I have my favorite (from another brand) and now this Versed Keep the Peace Acne Calming Cleanser that I prefer to use in the morning. It is such a gentle formulation and it feels absolutely amazing on the skin. I could emulsify this forever into my skin. The OTC strength on salicylic acid tackles breakouts and inflammation without stripping the skin of it's natural oils. That part is extremely important to me as hydration is key in the avoidance of breakouts. The smell is also another great point to this cleanser.... Read more
