In need of a good, but gentle oil-based cleanse for sensitive and problem skin?

Our Mild Milk Cleanser is made with nourishing rapeseed oil, hydrating plant-based glycerin and conditioning and anti-bacterial xylitol sugar. It gently but effectively removes oil, dirt and makeup, for skin that feels fresh and comfortable.  

And as a gentle reminder, which bears repeating: ALWAYS, and we really mean ALWAYS, apply the Milk directly onto dry skin, without water. That's how it's formulated. Applying to moist skin will dilute the cleansing power of the Milk. Same goes for our Gentle Gel Cleanser and Nourishing Oil Cleanser. Read more in our How to use section below!

Formulated for sensitive & problem skin. No added fragrance. Vegan & natural ingredients. Developed in our own Helsinki lab & made in Finland.

Ingredients (INCI)

Aqua, canola oil, glycerin, polyglyceryl-3 dicitrate/stearate, sodium levulinate, cetyl alcohol, sodium anisate, xylitol, xanthan gum, citric acid. More info

How to use & tips

  1. Apply generously to a cotton pad and wipe dry face (without using water) with pad, or massage directly onto dry skin with clean fingers.
  2. Rinse face with water. For a deeper cleanse, use a damp washcloth.
  • Tip 1: Dry, sensitive skin? No water needed - the Milk Cleanser can be wiped off with face tissue. Finish by wiping face with a toner-soaked cotton pad.
  • Tip 2: Use our re-usable and washable face pads to minimise waste!

Why it works for sensitive & problem skin

•Contains only ten ingredients.

•Contains no added fragrance (and no essential oils or floral waters) and no alcohol. 

•pH is around 5.5 (healthy skin's own pH is slightly acidic, between 4.8 and 5.5).

•Formulated with a  gentle and skin-friendly preservative system. This means we've created a unique preservative system for the Milk, to minimise overlap with our other leave-one products, using gentle preservatives.   

•Contains a gentle and non-ionic, plant-based emulsifier which also functions as a very mild surfactant.

•Formulated with a gentle and skin-friendly preservative system. 

•Swedish canola oil is an excellent all-round oil for most skin types.

•Plant-based glycerine is a well tolerated humectant that moisturises and protects skin, repairs the skin barrier, slows down water-loss and has antimicrobial properties and also helps cleanse skin.

•Xylitol, also a humectant, increases moisture content in skin and gently breaks down bacterial biofilm on skin.

  • The Milk has been rigorously tested by our founder Kristina and chemist Jaana, both of whom have a long history of sensitive and problem skin. 
  • •Allergy-labelled by the Finnish Allergy, Skin and Asthma Federation.

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


    Emollient and skin conditioning. Sustainably produced, deodorized and purified Swedish canola oil (from rapeseed oil) gently dissolves makeup and dirt. Canola oil is commonly used in cosmetics and is well-tolerated, skin wise. It is slightly higher in oleic acid (at around 60%), with linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids at a total of just over 30%, making it a good all-around oil for most, and especially for drier and eczema prone skins.


    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, organic kind, made from rapeseed, corn and soy.


    Emulsifying and surfactant. An emulsifier, put simply, enables the mixing of water and oil into an emulsion. This particular one is gentle on the skin, non-ionic, based on glycerin, stearic acid and citric acid, and is made from rapeseed and RSPO certified palm oils.


    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 and plant derived glycerin, it makes up the preservation system we use for our Milk Cleanser. At the appropriate pH, the salts transform into acid, and voilà – product preserved.


    Thickening and emulsion stabilising. A fatty alcohol made from RSPO certified palm oil. Please note that like sugar alcohols, e.g. glycerin or xylitol, fatty alcohols are not the same as denatured alcohol (ethanol); both sugar alcohols and fatty alcohols have moisturising and conditioning properties, whereas denatured alcohol has a completely different function in skincare products (and can be drying on skin).


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


    Humectant and skin conditioning. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol and 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.


    Gel forming, thickening and emulsion stabilising. A natural and commonly used thickener in cosmetics, xanthan gum is a polysaccharide produced from sugars through fermentation. Fun fact: it derives its name from the species of bacteria used in the fermentation process, Xanthomonas campestris.


    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.

    How to choose the right face cleanser for sensitive & problem skin

    From our blog: How to choose the right face cleanser for sensitive & problem skin

    It all starts with a good cleanse. Choosing the right cleanser is key in caring for sensitive and problem skin - often at the root of many skin issues are wrong and often too harsh cleansers, that disrupt your skin barriers. If you have moody skin, it can also be a good idea to keep two different cleansers on the shelf. Some days your skin may need a good but gentle cleanse, other days it needs a deep cleanse that doesn’t strip your skin. Or maybe you prefer to double cleanse. Our Cleansers can be used separately or together, depending on your skin day and how you like to cleanse.

    Puhdistusmaito herkälle iholle

    Puhdistusmaito ollut käytössä jo monta kuukautta. Sopii hyvin kuivalle ja herkälle, atooppiselle iholleni. Meikittöminä päivinä käytän pelkkää puhdistusmaitoa, meikin puhdistukseen ei riitä yksinään vaan vaatii öljyn tms. lisäksi.

    Milk Cleanser

    Paras hellävarainen toisen vaiheen puhdistusaine.

    Lempeä puhdistusmaito

    Luottotuote meikittömän ihon tai kevyen meikin puhdistukseen.

    Todella mukava iholla ja puhdistaa hyvin

    Olen käyttänyt tätä putsaria 1,5 vuotta. Tuntuu todella hyvältä rasvoittuvalla mutta pintakuivalla iholla. Iholle jää ehkä jonkinlainen pinta tuotteesta mutta se tuntuu lähinnä lisäkosteutukselta ja, koska iho tuntuu samaan aikaan kuitenkin puhtaalta, ei se ole häirinnyt minua. ”Pinta” ei tunnu enää, kun alkaa levittää muita tuotteita. Käytän tätä yleensä ainoana putsarina mutta sopii myös tosi hyvin kaksivaiheisen puhdistuksen toiseksi tuotteeksi. Elämä on helpottunut, kun tietää, että ainakin putsari on niin hyvä ettei tarvi enää testailla muita tuotteita tai miettiä vaihtoehtoputsareita. Ja monen tekijän summa mutta putsari on myös rauhoittanut ja onnistunut putsaamaan ihoni niin, että yksittäiset näpyt, joita ennen tuli usein, alkoivat vähentymään heti alusta lähtien ja nyt näppyjä ei tule enää juuri ollenkaan! Näppyjen poispitämisessä auttaa myös kuorinta ja hyvä kosteutus!

    Yksinkertaisesti paras putsari!

    Valehtelematta paras putsari, jota olen käyttänyt. Varmaan kymmenes pakkaus jo menossa! Sopii käytettäväksi aamuin illoin, ei kuivata yhtään tai muutoinkaan ärsytä ihoa. Unelmakombo puhdistusöljyn kanssa kaksoispuhdistukseen. Tämä tuote on täysi kymppi!
