Essential Cleansing Oil 100ml/3.4oz

$38.00 173 reviews
Using oil to cleanse the skin is one of the gentlest and most effective methods to draw out impurities and balance the skin's natural oil production. Our cleansing oil is ideal for all skin types; even oily skin.

Our facial cleansing oil gently removes impurities from the skin, including makeup, and lifts away pore-clogging oils with a silky, non-tugging slip. Contrary to popular myth, using an organic oil-based cleanser does not cause the skin to become oily. In fact, just the opposite is true. Traditional cleansers often fail to adequately hydrate and may cause the skin to overproduce natural oil as a result. Our organic oil cleanser balances the skin’s natural oil production with a dose of intense hydration.


Infused with the calming aroma of organic lavender oil, along with other organic and non-GMO ingredients, this single-step skin care solution is ideal for use as an oil makeup remover as well as an everyday skin cleanser.  For clean skin, the answer is simple.

  • Cleanses the skin and draws out any existing, nasty oils from within

  • Gently removes makeup without stripping the skin

  • Contains no water as filler for highly efficient hydration

  • Can be used as a shaving oil

  • Made with organic and non-GMO ingredients

  • Cruelty-Free: tested on our skin, never on animals

  • Eco-luxe and formulated without known toxins and parabens

  • PM: Apply 8-10 pumps into dry hands, then onto dry face. 
  • Liberally massage onto dry face and neck.
  • Wipe off with a warm wash cloth. Repeat if necessary.
  • Gently wipe face and neck with the washcloth to remove excess oil while providing a light exfoliation.
  • Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil

  • Organic Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil

  • Organic Ricinus Communis (Castor Seed) Oil

  • Organic Lavandula Hybrida (Lavender) Oil

  • Tocopherol (Non-GMO Vitamin E from Sunflower)

Soft skin delight

I just started using the essential cleansing oil a few weeks ago and love it. The lavender scent is so gentle and calming. And my skin feels softer than ever. It feels like I’m pampering and nurturing my skin.

I am thrilled with this product. My dear friend, Kathleen told me about it. She is very knowledgeable about skin care as she was an amazing esthetician. I love the way my skin feels and looks!

Decent Cleanser

I have been using another well-known oil cleanser but since they were bought from a bigger company that do test on animals on their other products, I wanted to try smaller company, so while I was shopping for Kari Gran's Balm, I also ordered the cleanser. I must add, I have not tried it with make up since I do put make rarely, especially since pandemic has started, so I cannot tell how it works on makeup products. Otherwise, two pumps were enough to clean my face (I put a hyperpigmentation Tx at night which causes peeling) without striping my skin. The treatment I use causes extreme dryness and I like the fact that the cleanser, even with the cloth, doesn't make my face squeaky clean, it leaves my face soft and feeling moistured. Scent: I feel scent is very personal so I will leave it to everyone's personal choice but as a person who is very sensitive to scents (I get migraines), it doesn't have a strong scent and it is definetely not floral (thank goodness). More like nutty/earthly maybe? Like you would expect from typical, pure oils, but NOT from artificially scented oils. Overall, I like the cleanser, I really really like the personal note I got from the shop with my order. I strongly believe those "little" touches matters a lot! Oh, and I love the fact that every product has its own expiration date handwritten on it. Love it!

Perfect Cleanser

This was my first time using a cleansing oil, so even though I don’t have another one to compare it to, it has become my holy grail of cleansers because of how incredible it is. I have very dry skin, and this felt so hydrating and calming when I was cleansing my face. I don’t use the full 8-10 pumps, I probably use about 6 and that’s more than enough for my face. I would say it cleans about 95% of the dirt, sweat, makeup, etc from my face. I do go in with a toner after and am able to pick up whatever the cleanser didn’t get, which is usually a very small amount. The price for the size is awesome, this company is amazing, and you will not regret giving this baby a try. Highly recommend!! :)
