If I have dark marks and acne, do I use the Clear Skin Cleansing Bar or the Even Tone Cleansing Bar?
If you have dark marks, suffer from acne and have oily skin, use the Clear Skin Cleansing Bar to reduce the visibility of these blemishes. If you don’t suffer from oily skin or aren't trying to help reduce the appearance of acne but have discolorations or want a brighter, more even-toned complexion, use the Even Tone Cleansing Bar. It is important to remember that all three of our cleansing bars help with the look of acne and discoloration, so the bar should be chosen based on skin type. For example, someone with dry skin/aging concerns and acne/discoloration would pick the Combination Skin Cleansing Bar.
Can this be used on the body?
We recommend using the Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar for a full-body treatment.
Can I use this bar with another cleanser?
Yes. This bar can be used along with our other cleansers.
Is it normal for my skin to feel irritated, red or peel after using this product?
No. If you are experiencing irritation, redness or peeling, it could be caused by a few other things: you may be scrubbing too hard with the sponge, your skin is too sensitive for this cleanser, you are using this product with too many exfoliating products and/or not giving your skin enough hydration. We recommend that you try our gentler cleansing options, Even Tone Gentle Gel Cleanser or LacticGlow Micropolish Resurface & Brighten Cleanser.
How can I keep my sponges clean?
These reusable sponges can be washed with laundry in a washing machine. We recommend washing them along with towels and letting them air dry. It is also important to let the sponge air dry after each use and not leave them inside the cleansing jar. If you need replacements, we sell additional sponges here on our website.
Is there Sodium Hydroxide in your cleanser bars?
Sodium Hydroxide is commonly used in the soap making process to turn fats and oils into soap - a process called saponification. However, the amount of Sodium Hydroxide used in the soap manufacturing process is not the amount you end up with in the finished product. By the end of the soap making process, most of the sodium hydroxide has dissociated (broken up) and is no longer present in the final product. As a result, while we use Sodium Hydroxide as a raw ingredient in our manufacturing process, there is only a residual amount of Sodium Hydroxide present in our finished cleansing bars.
Are your products tested on animals?
No. We take pride in being a cruelty-free company!
