Rose – We utilize a rare White Rose in this formula, organically cultivated for impactful environmental sustainability. Rose is gentle, hydrating, soothing and protective, as well as plumping and firming to the skin.
Calendula – Calendula two ways; in Hydrosol form as well as a whole plant extraction. Calendula is ideal for cleansing by encouraging cellular turnover, regeneration and improving anti-inflammatory pathways.
Burdock and Dandelion Root – This in-house Root decoction assists in cleansing and detoxing by carrying away impurities and cellular waste.
Honey – Our small batch, raw California Honey has enzymatic action that helps with gentle and healthy cell turnover.
Safflower and Sunflower – Our two favorite raw and freshly pressed seed oils for cleansing are in perfect balance here to decongest pores and minimize their appearance by attaching to our own oxidized oils so they can be easily wiped away.

Tips from Laurel: Did you know that despite being one of our best selling products, our Effortless Cleanser is still the one that we also get the most usage questions about? Often when people are using a non-foaming cleanser for the first time, they express that their skin doesn’t feel ‘clean’. Really, this ‘unclean’ feeling is just your skin’s natural lipid barrier! Make friends with this important part of your skin! It prevents aging and inflammation by protecting you from the elements and is home to a plethora of beneficial bacteria. Without your skin’s protective barrier (which foaming cleansers remove), you are making your skin more vulnerable to UV damage, inflammation, and harmful bacteria. If you have been using stripping cleansers for most of your life, then this transition to feel comfortable ‘in your skin’ can take as much as 2 weeks.
