Because extra TLC is needed when it comes to cleaning extremely sensitive or easily irritated skin.
Gently removes accumulated grime and excess dead skin cells without stripping the skin of its top protective lipid barrier. Due to its gentle nature, it may not remove all of your makeup or tinted moisturizer.
Cleaner, smoother skin that’s neither dry nor taut.

This kit includes everything you need to get started on the path to healthy, radiant skin--made especially for the discerning standards of our vegan friends.
Many other cleansers use harsh surfactants or sudsing agents that actually strip the skin of its environmental protective barrier, which is especially detrimental to skin that’s sensitive or prone to irritation. You won’t find them in our Gentle Cleanser. Instead, we use ingredients that increase the water content of the epidermis so it doesn’t dry or irritate the skin.
KEY INGREDIENTSRice bran powder:
Long used in Asian skin care to lighten skin, rice bran powder has a chemical structure similar to ceramides, so it removes excess cells while maintaining lipid barrier integrity.
Marshmallow root powder:
This powder is rich in anti-inflammatory properties and is mucilaginous when wetted, thus providing a “slip” that imparts a soothing, slick feel for your skin.
Colloidal oat flour:
Because oatmeal has such a remarkable ability to soothe rashes, it is often used to treat poison oak. Which also makes it the perfect ingredient for a cleanser where very gentle exfoliation with soothing and anti- inflammatory properties is required.
ALL INGREDIENTS100% vegan
Camellia sinensis (green & white tea), xanthan gum, aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) juice, vegetable glycerin, polyaminopropyl biguanide*, phaseolus angularis (adzuki bean) powder, tequilana azul (blue agave), rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) oleoresin, colloidal oat flour, oryza sativa (rice bran) powder, althaea officinalis (marshmallow root) powder, melia azadirachta (neem) extract, potassium sorbate, lavandula augustifolia (lavender) essential oil
NO HARMFUL INGREDIENTSNo toxic preservatives, harmful ingredients (such as triclosan), sudsing agents, drying anti-microbials (such as alcohol), fragrances, or detergents.
No benzoyl peroxide, which kills new skin cell formation and contributes to accelerated aging of skin.

As we age, 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. These issues are often compounded for extremely sensitive skin.
We all exfoliate naturally, shedding millions of dead skin cells daily. But cleansing is still necessary to remove the daily accumulation of dirt and oil—even when your skin is sensitive or prone to irritation. Gentle Cleanser, like its name suggests, gently 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.
