Active Cleanse is an exceptional cleanser as it deep cleanses your skin's pores, clarifies and gently exfoliates to leave your skin feeling clean, refreshed and invigorated. It lifts away ingrained impurities, surplus oils and dead skin cells, whilst purifying the skin with natural antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities.
It is also exceptionally efficient—a little goes a long way— and it is suitable for very sensitive skin. Use anytime anywhere with or without water. The expertly balanced active ingredients include salicylic acid, vitamin C and glycerin. For all skin types, especially sensitive combination. Cruelty free, vegan, no animal derived ingredients, paraben free, sulfate free and made in the UK.
HOW TO USE: Use daily in the morning and at night, and after activities. Massage into your skin and remove with a cotton pad or water then repeat. We highly recommend double cleansing for all skin types. It is exceptionally efficient - a little goes a long way. Follow up with Enhance & Protect for best results.
The key active ingredients that have been balanced for maximum efficacy and no irritation include:
- Salycilic acid dissolves skin debris that clogs pores, clears blackheads, acts as an anti-inflammatory and is a gentle exfoliant.
- Sodium ascorbyl phosphate is a stable, water-soluble form of vitamin C that functions as an anti-oxidant, helps brighten the skin and influences factors linked to break outs.
- Glycerin acts as a cleanser, toner and skin moisturiser. It helps cure oily skin problems like pimples, mild acne and blackheads and removes clogged impurities whilst moisturing and nourishing the skin.
- Denaturised alcohol helps kill the bacteria involved in spots and acne, and helps the other ingredients work better.
- It is very efficient and lasts much longer than cleansers of similar volume.
- You do not need to use a toner.
- Salycilic Acid, Vitamin C and Alcohol denat. can all dry the skin and cause irritation and this is the challenge that our Harley Street Skin Specialist and team of scientists at the innovation laboratory overcame during development and testing, to give you all the benefits of these ingredients without the complications.
- Strong exfoliants should not be used every day but we believe in a gentle consistent approach, so Active Cleanse gently helps the dead skin cells that build up every day to come off and therefore helps you to have brighter fresh skin.
- It is not possible to change the size of your skin's pores however it is possible to clear the pores of the debris and impurities so they appear less visible, which is what Active Cleanse does.
- Many cleansers can only be used once or twice a day as they can end up drying the skin but this what is different about Active Cleanse. It can be used multiple times a day, which is great if you have multiple gym or sports sessions.
- It's really lovely to use after swimming to help with the chlorine or salt depending on where you swim.

Enhance & Protect Ingredients
The key active ingredients balanced for maximum efficacy and no irritation to give your skin what it wants, when it needs include:
- Hyaluronic Acid hydrates the skin and locks in moisture.
- Vitamin C is an antioxidant that brightens the skin, evens skin tone and stimulates elastin production.
- Vitamin E is a powerful moisturising antioxidant that helps the skin's barrier and protects against free radical damage.
- SPF 30 UVA broad spectrum non-comedogenic sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun's UVB and UVA rays.
- Retinyl Palmitate 0.5% derived from vitamin A, helps cell turnover and collagen production to reduce lines and wrinkles.
- Glycerin helps retain moisture in the skin and nourishes it.
- Aloe Vera is nature's potent skin healer and moisturiser.
- DMAE firms and tightens the skin helping reduce skin laxity.
- Hydrolysed wheat protein is one of the most effective pore minimisers by moisturising and nourishing the skin.
- It is very efficient and lasts longer than moisturisers and serums of the same volume.
- You do not need to use additional serums, eye creams, night time moisturisers or sunscreens.
- The low strength of the Retinyl Palmitate gently helps the skin's cell turnover on a continuous basis when faced with the elements that cause dry skin, which slows the skin's cell turnover as defence, so E&P can be used during the day. Some retinoid products are higher strength, which can shock the skin but we prefer a gentler continuous approach for longer term benefit, which also means that you don't get the irritation and dryness that some retinoids can cause.
- The SPF 30 UVA broad spectrum sunscreen protects the skin from the UVA and UVB sun rays, complements the retinyl palmitate and is non-comedogenic, which means it doesn't block the skin's pores, so it doesn't cause breakouts and also means it can be used at night as the skin can still breathe. We use chemical sunscreens because they are lighter, more effective, don't cause breakouts and don't leave a layer on your skin compared to mineral sunscreens. You can use this every day and that is important for protecting your skin from the sun.
- It can be a challenge layering different products and can be hit and miss, especially those with vitamin C but we have done the hard work to ensure the right pH levels and delivery for your skin to avoid the complications you may face when trying to mix and match different skin care products.
