Yes! It's great for normal and sensitive skin because it contains gentle surfactants - below a 3 on the EWG toxicity scale - ceramides, to protect the skins barrier and glycerin, which draws oil out while keeping moisture in, this allows it to deeply cleanse pores and remove makeup without drying or irritating your skin. Check out our reviews and testimonial videos for more on this.

Our use of ceramides and gentle cleansers will help to clean pores without irritating the skin, and likely for this reason, we have had several customers who have said it helps with acne prone skin, but we did not develop it as an acne fighting cleanser.

Actually, it removes makeup extremely well - check out our videos to see how it even removes heavily layered 'drag makeup ' - without drying out the skin.

Make sure you use potable, drinking water and add the water first to a clean dispenser, and then mix the cleanser from the Chrysalis into the drinking water.Like all cleansers, we use chelating ingredients to preserve and decrease the reactivity of metal ions that may be present in the water and product ingredients.We use Tetrasodium EDTA as our primary chelating ingredient, which is a 1 - 2 on the EWG toxicity scale when used in a cleanser. We also use Phenoxyethanol, which is a commonly used preservative in skin care products that is to prevent microbial growth.We have run numerous tests, and so long as you use drinking water (tap or filtered) it should work as any other cleanser.

Yes, it is a light gel. If you'd like it to be thinner, use 105ml of water and if you'd like it to be thicker, use 95ml of water. Adding a little less or more water will not impact performance in any way, so in other words, you don't have to measure perfectly.

Not at all. It does not need to be perfect to work 'perfectly'! If you add a little less water than required, it will be a thicker gel, and if you add a little more water, it will be a thinner gel. MAKE SURE YOU ADD THE WATER FIRST, THEN THE CLEANSING AGENTS TO THE WATER.

Yes! It has an average amount of suds and foam - not too little, not too much.

Simply add 100 ml of potable drinking water to a clean dispenser (our dispenser has a fill line marked on the side of the bottle), then snip and pour the concentrate into the water and give it a gentle shake by tipping the bottle upside down and right side up 5 - 10 times. For best results, let it sit for 20min before use. Bubbles will form after you shake it and then settle within an hour.

Simply rinse out the pod, break it up and put in either a backyard compost or dirt. 1 pod can also be placed in a countertop composter such as the LOMI, and because it is made of natural waxes, oils and resins, it could really be disposed of anywhere without leaving a harmful trace. It will typically take 3 - 6 months to decompose in a natural compost pile with a good microbe mix.

Yes! Our cleanser is plastic-free, and so is the packaging it comes in!

Yes! Our cleanser is Phtalate free!

Incredibly convenient

How We Compare

Natural Science Meets Gentle Chemistry to Cleanse without Drying or Irritating

Our cleanser was developed with a cosmetic chemist, micro biologist and industrial chemist. The intent was to develop something that was strong enough to remove make-up and clear pores, while providing PH balanced reinforcements to maintain and uphold your natural moisture barrier. In other words, it'll cleanse without leaving your skin dry or irritated. That means it's good for sensitive, combination and normal skin.

Deep Dive on Ingredients

every ingredient explained and ranked

cleanser ingredient summary

Our cleanser (and all etee products) are developed with EWG's skin deep® rating system in mind. The hazard score, from 1 to 10, reflects known and suspected health hazards linked to the ingredients. Our goal is to use only low hazard (1 -2) ingredients. In some instances we may use ingredients that range from a 1 - 4 because - for example - some ingredients are a 1 or 2 if rinsed off the skin (as is the case with some cleansing agents), but a 4 if left on the skin. The rating system works as follows.

Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate

This surfactant helps to cleanse the skin by removing dirt, oil, and impurities, creating lather and enhancing the foaming action of the cleanser.

Cocamidopropyl Betaine

A mild surfactant derived from coconut oil, it contributes to the cleansing and foaming properties of the facial cleanser. NOTE: this agent could be considered a 1-2 when used as a cleanser because it's meant to be rinsed off, but higher if left on the skin.

Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate

Another gentle surfactant that aids in cleansing and foaming while maintaining a mild and non-irritating formula.

Sodium Chloride

Common table salt, used as a thickening agent and to adjust the viscosity of the cleanser.

Glycerin

A moisturizing ingredient that helps to hydrate and soothe the skin, leaving it soft and supple.

Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Extract

Cucumber extract contains antioxidants and has soothing properties known to calm and refresh the skin.

Lycium Barbarum (Goji Berry) Extract

If free radicals are robbing you of your 'youth', then the antioxidant carotenoids in Goji Berries could help 'neutralize' these intruders while also BRIGHTENING the skin.

Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Extract

Lemon extract can offer brightening and clarifying effects due to its natural acidity, in some instances it can be irritating to sensitive skin, but the quantities and fact that it's rinsed off will eliminate those concerns.

Panax (Ginseng) Root Extract

Ginseng extract is known for its revitalizing and toning properties, helping to invigorate the skin.

Taraxacum Officinale (Dandelion) Extract

Dandelion extract is often used for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, contributing to a soothing and calming effect on the skin. And some even claim it's good to treat acne because it detoxifies, clears pores and prevents breakouts.

Ceramide 1, 2, 3, & 6 II

Ceramides are natural lipids found in the skin that help to strengthen and restore the skin barrier, improving moisture retention and overall skin health.

Butylene Glycol

Butylene Glycol is a commonly used humectant ( barrier on the skin that retains moisture) that helps to maintain moisture balance in the skin and enhance the absorption of other beneficial ingredients.

Hydrogenated Lecithin

Lecithin is a natural emulsifier that helps to stabilize the cleanser's formula and maintain the integrity of the product.

Caprylic/Capric Glycerides Polyglycerin -10 Esters

A combination of caprylic/capric triglycerides (derived from coconut oil) and polyglycerin-10 esters (emulsifiers) to improve the texture and stability of the cleanser.

Caprylic/Capric Glycerides Polyglycerin -10 Esters

A combination of caprylic/capric triglycerides (derived from coconut oil) and polyglycerin-10 esters (emulsifiers) to improve the texture and stability of the cleanser.

Pentylene Glycol

A humectant and preservative that helps to prevent moisture loss and maintain the product's freshness.

Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract

Aloe vera extract is well-known for its soothing and hydrating properties, making it beneficial for sensitive and dry skin.

Tocopherol (Vitamin E)

Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that can help protect the skin from free radical damage and promote overall skin health.

Phenoxyethanol

Phenoxyethanol is a preservative commonly used in skincare products to prevent microbial growth. NOTE: this can be higher than 2 if used on lips or used in spray products that can be inhaled.

Tetrasodium EDTA

Tetrasodium EDTA is a chelating agent, used to sequester and decrease the reactivity of metal ions that may be present in a product. This means it's good for mixing with 'hard' tap drinking water.

Sodium Hydroxide

Sodium hydroxide is used to adjust the pH level of the cleanser, but it can be a strong irritant and should be handled with care.
NOTE: When used in a cleanser, this ingredient is low (1 - 2) when used in other instances it is higher (3+).

Has exceeded my expectations

Actually, I love it. Love the compact reusable bottle and the no waste refill pod. Love how it makes my skin feel - smooth and clean without dryness. Love the clear formula with low (or no?) fragrance. I've used it to remove eye makeup and it works for me... and doesn't sting my eyes! It's the best plastic free liquid cleanser I've tried. I will be keeping my subscription.

Gentle Facial cleanser with Ceramides, Goji Berry and Ginseng

I love this product! It is gentle but effective, and I love the idea of the wax pods it comes in as a way to reduce waste. The only issue is that 2 of the 3 pods have leaked in transit, one actually exploded and I had to have it replaced. It’s not a cheap cleanser when you add on shipping and it comes damaged it’s disappointing.

Hi Christine, thanks so much for letting us know. We're happy to hear the cleanser is working so well, but I'm really sorry to hear about the damaged pods. We ocasionally get breaks (1% or orders) so I'm sorry this happened with you. I've reached out to make sure you're getting replacements sent out right away!

Happy with Gentle Facial Cleanser

I received my gentle face cleanser a month ago and so far really like it. It removes my makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft and not stripped of it’s natural oils. I also don't need much product which is a plus! I love how it comes concentrated and with very little waste for the environment. The pod the product came in I found a little difficult to get all of it out but finally did by cutting down the sides. I plan to repurchase in the future.

Gentle & Affordable

YTTP got way too expensive and cerave isnt super effective and watered down. With Etee you can use your own water and the pod it comes in is comparable, so there’s no waste! Plus the price point is way better than other brands for the quality

Erin Moody
So far I’m loving it!

It’s gentle and I like the way it feels on my face. I LOVE the packaging. I put the pod in my backyard compost. I hope y’all develop a facial toner and eye cream next!

One cleanser does it all

I am so pleased with your gentle but effective cleanser. I have a condition with my eyes that requires I wash my eyelids with soap. It was recommended I use baby shampoo, but I tried the facial cleanser and it works. It doesn’t burn my eyes like regular soaps. Now all I need is one cleanser for my face instead of two. Thank you!

Lesa Fox
Best Cleanser EVER

As a retired master esthetician, I have tried a lot of products. LOVE the cleanser and its effectiveness while leaving the skin soft and supply afterwards. I LOVE that the refill is compostable. I love that you aren’t shipping water around!

Robin Parker
Gentle but so amazing!

I have super sensitive skin and find a hard time finding products that work on my skin without drying it out or causing more breakouts. This face wash is what dreams are made of for me!!! My skin was so soft even after one wash and every day I look forward to washing my face! No drying or tight feeling after I wash as well as no breakouts! I’m 40 and don’t want to deal with breakouts but I have PCOS so breakouts still happen when I use the wrong products. This is a phenomenal product and I have been recommending it to everyone who will listen!

3rd refill

I love my facial cleanser. It gets the job done and don't have any packaging left behind. I kinda wish it had a scent but It does not. Thank you Etee! You guys are doing big things!

Thanks Kathleen! That's great to hear :) If we were to introduce a scent, would you have anything specific in mind?
