Many other cleansers use harsh surfactants or sudsing agents that actually strip the skin of its environmental protective barrier, exposing it to damage from the elements. You won’t find them in our Exfoliating Cleanser. Instead, we use ingredients that increase the water content of the epidermis so it doesn’t dry or irritate the skin.
KEY INGREDIENTSLactic acid
This alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) is an effective exfoliant that also has significant anti-aging benefits, such as increasing production of natural ceramides to prevent moisture loss.
This beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) loosens dead cell build-up trapped in pores. It also exfoliates excess dead surface cells, thereby increasing the body’s resistance to irritation and infection.
Adzuki bean powder
This very fine powder gently exfoliates with a scrubbing action. It’s effective at loosening dead skin cells without causing the slightest irritation. In fact, it imparts a refined polish to the skin.

Exfoliation is recommended for normal, oily, sun damaged, and aging skin. That’s because as we age and get exposed to the elements, our skin becomes drier and duller. Drier because we are producing less natural oils that keep it lubricated, and duller because, as our cell turnover rate slows, more dead skin cells accumulate on the surface, making skin appear blotchy and rough in texture.
We all exfoliate naturally, shedding millions of dead skin cells daily. But cleansing with gentle exfoliation is still necessary to remove the daily accumulation of dirt and oil—especially for oily and sun damaged skin. Exfoliating Cleanser washes away the grime while keeping the topmost layer of the epidermis—the stratum corneum—intact. And, as fresh skin cells replace the old, the top layer of skin gradually becomes smoother, softer and more supple.
"Intelligent Ingredients" is more than just a tagline. It’s the overriding principle that guides every formulation at Marie Veronique Organics. That’s because science tells us that what goes on your skin ultimately penetrates your skin and goes into your body. The right ingredients can do a world of good and the wrong ones quite the opposite. Before an ingredient gets added to a product we make sure it does the right thing, efficiently and without causing harm to you or the planet.
Using our deep scientific understanding of the aging process, we turn to nature for potent ingredients that will counter—and even reverse—the effects of aging skin. Our ingredients are selected to penetrate deep within the skin, working exactly where the aging action happens, rather than simply staying on the surface. And above all else, we stand by our philosophy that toxic ingredients, harmful chemicals, artificial agents and preservatives are not the solution for making your skin look and feel younger.
It’s probably no surprise that our entire company is dedicated to sustainability. Wherever possible we use natural, organic and fair trade ingredients, packaged in 100% recyclable materials. And we source them as close to our Mill Valley headquarters as possible to keep our footprint super small.
Shake well before use and keep in a cool place. Massage gently onto wet skin. Rinse. If irritation develops discontinue use and consult a physician.
