Cleansing, one of the most divisive areas of skincare conversation, is so incredibly personal and so incredibly important. Nailing the cleansing step of your skincare regime is like laying the foundations to build a house; if it's not right, the next steps will fall down.

The Ordinary Squalane Cleasner

It's not often we find a cleanser which suits so many skin types and puts so many smiles on so many faces, but The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser [aka 'The Game Changer'] has changed that. This balm-to-oil cleanser lifts daily build-up and make-up from the skin while leaving your natural moisturising factors intact and protected, it's quite simply the holy grail of cleansing.

Who is it suitable for?

Everybody. Absolutely everybody. This low-foaming, (almost no-foaming!) cleanser works perfectly on almost every single skin type. The reason? The low intervention approach means that Squalane Cleanser causes minimal disruption to the skin's natural balance and leaves the barrier intact and protected, and this is exactly what you should be looking for in your cleanser.

How does it work?

When you squeeze Squalane Cleanser from the tube it is dispensed as a white balm, and as you massage it across the skin it transforms into a milky, oily formula. We prefer to warm it in our hands before applying it to dry skin.

Squalane Cleanser features -you guessed it- Squalane and lipophilic esters to dissolve make-up, excess facial sebum and daily grime. Lipophilic esters aren't soluble in water which means they won't dry the skin out as they don't bind-to, or mix with water from the skin's cells. This means that as they lift everything you don't want on your complexion, they leave the important stuff behind -  hydration. Squalane and lipophilic esters dissolve make-up and facial oil and act like a magnet for dirt, so as you rinse (or wipe) it way, it carries all of bad stuff down the drain and leaves your skin silky soft and squeaky clean.

How to use Squalane Cleanser:

Alway makes sure your face and hands are dry before you begin. This formula works best on dry skin so turn the tap off for now!

  • Squeeze a marble-sized amount into your hands.
  • Warm between the palms to transform it into a milky oil.
  • Massage it across the face using gentle circular motions.
  • Spend at least 20 seconds working it around the contours of the face.
  • Rinse a face cloth under warm water, wring it out, then remove your Squalane Cleanser by wiping the cloth across the face and neck.
  • Pat your skin with a dry towel.
