This is THE ONE you have to have in your skin care regimen.  The texture reminds me of Greek yogurt, except there is no odor or tartness to this cream, and it simply melts away all traces of make-up without drying out your skin.  Use every other day or every third day and it does all those wonderful things that alpha-hydroxy acids are supposed to do. It dissolves that old, dead layer of skin and leaves you with soft, clean, healthy skin.  We have found with experience that the small percentage of alpha hydroxy acids, like our 5-6%, when used every 2 to 3 days can be much less harsh on your skin and actually more effective. There is no issue of "recovery time" except that we recommend you avoid bright sunlight up to about an hour or two after using. Which is why I usually use this at night before going to bed or before a special evening occasion. Intuitively I personally cannot stress my skin to the degree that it is stressed with the high percentage AHA's which can only require my immune system to go into high gear and free radicals to run amok. This cleanser actually adds antioxidants to fight free radicals already rampant in our environment.

 

After using this cleanser your skin is now ready to receive that wonderful Skin Intensive Cream you’re about to put on it! Or if your skin isn't as dry as mine, you want to use the Every Day Facial Cream. We recommend our Green Tea Cleanser as your every day cleanser.

Sunburn Alert: This product contains natural fruit alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product.

The consistency of this cleanser is similar to Greek yogurt. I used to say a thick sour cream until I purchased my first container of Greek yogurt - without the tartness of course, smooth and unscented. I recommend using this cleanser once or twice a week for that deep cleaning that removes the dead layer of skin. Until this layer is removed, no other ingredients can actually penetrate down to where they will make a difference. Apply gently, using the upward circular motion we've all read about. I like to leave it on while I brush my teeth, and then wash off with a warm washcloth. I also like to use this particular cleanser if I'm going somewhere special where I particularly want to look healthier and radiant. By removing that dead layer of skin and if you've been following our regimen or any good facial regimen, you will see a healthy glow that comes only through using good natural, organic quality ingredients - and leading a a healthy lifestyle of good nutrition and exercise. Applying a thick heavy foundation over beautiful skin is not something I think should be necessary.

The FDA requires a safety warning on ANY products containing alpha hydroxy acids, regardless of how low the percentage is (ours is 5 to 6%), as follows:

Sunburn Alert:
