How to

1. Thoroughly massage a coin-sized amount onto dry skin with clean fingers, add water and then rinse away.

2. For an even deeper cleanse, wipe off with a damp washcloth

3. Heavy, waterproof makeup may need a pre-cleanse with our Milk Cleanser.

4. Tip 1: Our Gel Cleanser is on the runnier side - we recommend that you always remove the cap with the tube opening in an upright position.

5. Tip 2: The Gel Cleanser doubles as a light exfoliant. Massage onto dry skin and let sit for 5-10 minutes before rinsing with water or a washcloth.

6. Tip 3: The Gel Cleanser is an excellent gentle alternative to shaving foam.



Solvent. Water. The main vehicle for our Gel Cleanser.


Humectant and skin protecting. Technically a sugar alcohol, glycerin is one of the oldest, most common and most versatile humectants used in cosmetics. It moisturises and protects the skin, accelerates skin barrier recovery and has antimicrobial properties, among other things. We use the vegetable kind, made from rapeseed and organic corn and soy oils.


Surfactants. Low foaming, non-ionic surfactants, actually solubilisers, made from castor, rapeseed, palm and coconut oils. A surfactant acts as a cleansing agent and emulsifier. The combination we use has excellent and proven makeup removing capabilities, and is mild on the skin and eyes.


Thickening. Basically the Gel in our Cleanser, cetyl hydroxyethylcellulose is a water-dispersible polymer. Made from natural, wood derived cellulose, which has been synthetically modified.


Humectant and skin conditioning. Betaine is highly purified sugar beet extract, chemically speaking an amino acid derivative, that maintains skin moisture balance and strengthens the skin barrier even under very dry conditions. It is a so-called osmolyte, controlling water balance in living cells. The one we use is made from Finnish sugar beets.


Humectant and skin conditioning. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that moisturises and conditions skin, whilst possessing anti-bacterial properties. There is some interesting research that suggests xylitol has the ability to inhibit bacterial biofilm on skin, which in turn may be the cause of many skin issues. The one we use is made in Finland from European hardwood.


Skin conditioning and preservative. Sodium levulinate is the sodium salt of levulinic acid, an organic acid that in this case is derived from sugarcane. Together with sodium anisate, water and plant derived glycerin, it makes up the preservation system we use for our Gel Cleanser. At the appropriate pH, the salts transform into acid, and voilà – product preserved.


Antimicrobial, flavouring agent and preservative. The salt of star anis derived organic acid. The other half of our preservation system.


Buffering agent. Citric acid is a commonly used buffering, i.e. pH adjusting, agent in cosmetics. It is made through bacterial fermentation and shifts the pH of the product into the acidic range. This is closer to the natural pH of the skin, which may range from 4 to 7, but is usually thought to be between 5 and 6, with recent studies, however, indicating it to be below 5.

Tykkään! Ihanan hellävarainen puhdistaa meikit hyvin ja ei ärsytä herkkää ihoa.

I have skin with the triple problem of rosacea, excess oil and wrinkles. It is also sensitive to fragrance, colourings – so basically a nightmare. This cleanser is the most wonderful product I have ever found. It cleans thoroughly, but without stripping the skin. It also calms the skin with regular use. Spritz of the toner is highly recommmded afterwards. Please never stop making this wonderful product. Please sell it in the UK too!

Ihanan kevyt koostumus ja sopii kevyeen puhdistukseen.

Gentle and unscented cleanser which i like. However for my sensitive skin this cleanser is a little bit too potent for everyday use. Therefore I only use it when i really need a deep cleanse. Otherwise a great product for those who are looking for a gentle gel wash!

I love this cleanser! My skin is hyper sensitive and reactive, and my face usually turns red for a while after I remove my make up. But when I use this cleanser, my skin doesn’t get irritated at all. It leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed, which I absolutely love. Thank you, Laponie!

Huippu, ei kuivata, pesee meikit pois hyvin.
