A Breakdown of Our New Breakthrough Cleanser

by Beth Wischnia August 06, 2021

The cleansing step in your skincare routine is not only the first step, but arguably the most important. Clean skin is happy skin; and it creates a blank canvas for the rest of your regimen. What’s tricky about cleansers, though, is that they have a bad rep of being harsh and drying in order to achieve that deep-cleansing effect. At Biossance, harsh formulas are not part of our M.O., so we decided to master the cleanse to provide a product that achieves the pore clarifying benefits we all search for, while also revealing hydrated and healthy skin.

We know what you’re thinking—isn’t that what our Squalane + Tea Tree Cleansing Gel achieved? We know how much you all love that formula, but that’s why you have to trust us when we say we’ve created something even better. As an innovative beauty brand constantly re-evaluating our products and formulas to provide the best in clean skincare for our customers, so meet our Squalane + Amino Aloe Gentle Cleanser, your new go-to formula for clean, happy skin. We think it’s the best clean cleanser ever. 

Squalane + Amino Aloe Gentle Facial Cleanser

It’s like a clean slate for your skin; a fresh start. It couples the deep pore-cleansing and skin-balancing benefits of our beloved Tea Tree Cleanser with a trio of skin-loving antioxidants including amino acid, aloe vera, and moringa to also soothe, calm, and protect. It’s a universal cleanser that’s not only effective at keeping your face clean, but our oceans clean as well. Believe us when we say it’s everything you’ve ever wanted and more for the first step of your routine.


Heathy Skin, Healthy Oceans

Ingredients are important to us and to the well-being of our oceans. Every beauty product starts and ends in the environment—from where the ingredients are sourced to where it goes when it rinses away. That’s why we paid close attention to what we used to formulate our new breakthrough. It was important to create something that not only delivered powerful results, but also stayed true to our commitment to our oceans.

Many cleansers contain detergents that can linger even after wastewater is treated, but our new Squalane + Amino Aloe Gentle Cleanser is different. It’s formulated with pure, sustainable ingredients from the lab that allow water to return to the source in a pristine state. Your skin stays fresh, restored, and purified. And our oceans stay healthy, unpolluted, and thriving.

The powerhouse ingredients packed in this dirt-fighting, hydrating gel cleanser are truly what make the formula so special. Clean, hydrating, and effective ingredients to give you the best deep cleanse for your skin:

  • Amino acid complex dissolves makeup and conditions
  • Organic aloe vera leaf juice gently hydrates, calms, and refreshes
  • Moringa extract purifies and dislodges impurities and environmental pollutants
  • Squalane leaves skin soft, supple, and hydrated

The Ultimate One-Step Cleanser

What exactly do we mean when we say we’ve mastered the cleanse? We mean our new breakthrough checks all the boxes—it’s the ultimate one-step cleanser. Use it to break up debris, dirt, and makeup, remove remnants of environmental pollution, and uplift and invigorate the skin with its gentle foam texture and a spa-like scent. How do you incorporate it into your routine? As the cleanser and the first step in your routine, mix a small amount with warm water and work it into a lather. Massage it onto your face, and then rinse it with water to reveal a complexion that’s happy and clean. Start and end your day with this new daily essential and your skin will thank you.

My industry experience includes years as a beauty editor and leading content for a wide range of skincare and makeup brands. Those experiences led me to Biossance—I was introduced to the brand on an editor press trip in 2017 and instantly fell in love. I toured the labs, created my own 100% Squalane with essential oils, and noticed a dramatic difference in my skin by introducing clean products (especially the Vitamin C Rose Oil) to my regimen. I’m excited to be on this journey with Biossance and be at the forefront of clean beauty innovation.

As passionate as we are about squalane, we know there’s still a lot of confusion surrounding the multitasking superstar: Is there a difference between squalane and squalene? (Spoiler: Yes! A few major ones.) Why is our vegan squalane derived from sugarcane instead of olives like most other formulas? What makes us love this ingredient so much that we’ve included it in all of our products?
You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.
