Skin Type: All Skin Types

This gentle cleansing gel is perfect for all skin types, especially sensitive skin & those who wish to avoid cleansers which contain even mild detergents. This castile-based cleanser forms a rich lather due to natural saponification of organic fruit & nut oils. It easily washes away even the most difficult to remove makeup & sunscreen, yet does not strip the skin of its natural lipid barrier due to its skin-friendly, neutral pH. Enriched with soothing aloe and vitamins B3 and B5, this cleanser leaves skin soft & hydrated, yet clean & refreshed. Due to the natural ingredients in this product, its physical appearance ranges from a clear yellow to a hazy off-white gel.

Key Benefits:

  • 100% Detergent-Free
  • Vitamin enriched formula
  • Protects & moisturizes
  • Perfect for all skin types
  • Non-drying, even after repeated washings

Key Active Ingredients:

  • Aloe Vera Leaf Juice – Known for its soothing & moisturizing properties for the skin.
  • d-Panthenol (Provitamin B5) – Boosts hydration & moisture content in skin.
  • Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) - Helps to clarify & brighten skin. Also displays anti-inflammatory effect in patients with acne & rosacea.


Directions for use (AM & PM): Apply a small amount to wet skin. Gently massage in circular motions with fingertips. Rinse completely with tepid, clean water. Follow with appropriate toners, treatments & moisturizer/sunscreen. 

Note: Due to the natural ingredients & process in creating this product, slight separation may occur when shipping in cold weather. This can be easily fixed by allowing the product to come to room temperature & shaking until remixed.

    PSF Gentle Castile Cleanser

    Posted by Linda on 21st May 2020

    I recently went back to using this Cleanser and I’d forgotten how much I liked it! My skin is combo, mature skin, but still oily forehead and chin. This Cleanser cleans so well, without stripping skin. I prefer a Cleanser that lathers rather than a cream cleanser. This one is perfect.

    Best step two cleanser out there

    Posted by Teresa Meyer on 3rd Mar 2019

    I’ve been using this religiously since I discovered the company. A little goes a long way. Such an elegantly minimal formula. Never change or get rid of this one, please!

    Thanks for bringing it back!

    Posted by RCG on 12th Dec 2014

    I'm so glad this product is back! It's my HG face wash and the first PSF product I purchased. I didn't give it 5 stars because I don't like the new container (I much preferred the green pump style) and because we only get 6 ounces instead of 8.

    not too drying

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Mar 2014

    I have such dry skin i got this as a shower gel. Definitely made a difference on my very dry feet but i continue to look for something even more moisturizing. For someone with normal skin it would be a five star.

    So happy it's back

    Posted by Ashley P on 20th Dec 2013

    Like the others, I was so sad when this cleaner was discontinued. It's pretty perfect in every way -- it only takes a teensy bit (so the bottle lasts for ever), it's not drying, and it gets most all of my makeup off. Also love the new bottle instead of the old pump. Makes it easier to get just a dab.

    Best Ever!

    Posted by Susanne on 25th Oct 2013

    It was heartbreaking when this cleanser was discontinued. I searched and searched for a replacement, and never found it. And my skin really suffered. But, now it's BACK! My skin is so relieved! I need this cleanser to keep my skin barrier healthy. It cleans very well, doesn't dry, and is an excellent value. Thank you so much for bringing Gentle Cleansing Castile back.

    LOVE this stuff!!

    Posted by Allison S. on 8th Oct 2013

    LOVE this stuff!! Great value for the money, cleans my skin nicely while maintaining a healthy skin barrier. If you use too much at once, it can be slightly drying. You really do only need a pea-sized amount. I've been using this for a couple years and it is the only cleanser I have used consistently for this long!

    Best cleanser ever

    Posted by Susan R. on 8th Oct 2013

    Best cleanser ever. I have recommended this to dozens of people. It cleanses well, doesn't dry, and the non-detergent formula keeps my skin barrier healthy so that my other actives don't cause irritation. It's very concentrated, so you get a great value for the price.
