We have discontinued the tea tree version as a fair number of users seemed to have allergic reactions to tea tree oil. Our original cleanser formulation was without tea tree and we are reverting back to the old formulation.

A gentle, non-drying cleanser that can be used on the face and the back (bacne) to reduce existing acne and prevent new acne from forming. Read more on the making of Gentle Calming Cleanser here.

  • Lactic Acid
    Found naturally in our skin, lactic acid helps to balance our skin pH. When we have acne, our skin shifts to alkaline pH. Bacteria thrives in alkaline pH. Our cleanser helps to shift pH back to the acidic range, helping to prevent bacterial growth.
  • Whey / Lactoserum
    Derived from cow's milk, this protein helps to maintain acidity of our skin longer.
  • Coconut/Plant-derived Surfactants (Sulfate free)
    Using a blend of sulfate-free surfactants derived from coconuts and plants, Gentle Calming Cleanser is able to cleanse throughly and gently without drying the skin.
  • Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) Leaf Oil 
    Anti-bacterial properties reduce acne/blemishes. Anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce redness and irritation.
  • Honey
    Honey has natural calming properties, helping to reduce redness and irritation. It has anti-bacterial properties too.

Q1. How long do I need to use before I can see results?

A1. Anti-acne products need time to work. For best results, use together with anti-acne solution. A good estimate is 2-3 months. Some people might experience faster results but usually those are the milder cases. After 3 months, if you still do not see any improvement, it’s best you consult a doctor as you might need medication. We recommend Dr Tan from Beo Crescent Clinic & Surgery as he will be better able to assess your condition and prescribe medications accordingly.

Q2. Is this drying? A lot of anti-acne cleansers are very drying.

A2. No, our product do not leave your skin feeling tight and dry after washing. It’s gentle yet thorough in cleansing. Try it and feel the difference!

Q3. I have back acne. Will this cleanser help?

A3. Certainly! Jasmine, our founder, had her back acne cleared using a similar calamine cleanser and a similar solution to Glow Exfoliant.

Q4. If I have occasional outbreaks especially during the time of the month, is this cleanser suitable for me?

A4. Our cleanser contains lactic acid and lactoserum that helps to balance the skin pH. This will help prevent and/or reduce severity of the outbreak. The surfactants(cleansing agents) are so gentle that you can use it twice daily without worries.

    The cleanser helps my teenage daughter tame the redness on her face. The light weight serum is another must have, it moisturises without that heavy leftover feel.
