Essential Cleansing Oil 100ml/3.4oz

$38.00 169 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)

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!! :)

I cannot say enough about this Essential Cleaning Oil. I am 54 with combo skin and I rarely break out, but do occasionally. This cleansing oil has changed the texture of my skin (to silky smooth) by properly cleansing without stripping and drying. My fine lines have disappeared. And using a very warm/wet rag on my face after applying the cleanser feels like a spa experience. I look forward to washing my face each night before bed, solely due to this product and how easy it is to use. It has been a game changer for my skin.

Where do I begin? ❤️

Sooo, I am one of those shoppers that strongly bases my purchase on reviews but never leaves them...but these products have forced me out of my typical silence. My experience with this entire system has been incredible. Here’s the backstory...I’m 46. Lately, I’ve noticed definite changes in the overall appearance of my skin that includes dullness, dry patches, oily patches, teenage acne, and maskne. I began scouring the Internet, getting in Facebook conversations, and researching the very best I could for something that would, at the very least, help me not feel completely putrid. I am in a fantastic Facebook group for women over 40. As I scrolled through all the comments and suggestions of the usual suspects and department store brands, someone posted their experience with Kari Gran, and how wonderful it was. I emailed their customer service and loved the experience from the beginning. Ok. But the products. I am using now, one month in, almost everything they make. I literally look forward to cleansing my face. The feel, the smell, the’s an experience I’ve never had with other products. You will not feel greasy or anything of the sort afterwards. You’re giving your skin what it’s craving. I use the tonic with the serum morning and night and WOW! My skin is glowing, my zits are gone. I really feel like my skin looks better than it ever has. I couldn’t be happier or more pleased!

Been using for 5 years straight!

I started using the Essential Cleansing Oil after attending a demo session with Kari. I was totally blown away at how much nicer the experience of washing my face was, and my skin felt so much better. I've been using it since then, for 5 years and there's no turning back to soap! Great product and a great company to support. <3

My Skin Says "Thank You"

Being diagnosed with cancer (now in remission!) Made me take a close look at what I was putting in and on my body. My research led me to Kari Gran skin care. Cleansing with oil was new to me but I wanted to try the products based on their natural, simple, and organic ingredients. I was not disappointed! I no longer have issues with a red face and my skin tone has improved to the point that I have people comment how healthy my face looks. I LOVE the skin care line. I use the make-up and love it as well.
