Leaves your skin feeling refreshed and purified. Everyday, our skin is exposed to inflammatory pollutants in our air -- indoors and out. Purity gentle dissolves these pollutants, allowing them to be easily emulsified and rinsed away with water.
Doesn't strip the skin's natural barrier. Purity is formulated with an exceptionally gentle surfactant blend, designed to deeply cleanse the skin without leaving the skin feeling tight and dry. The result: Purity deeply cleanses while leaving our most important defense against inflammation, our skin barrier, intact.
An optimal skincare regimen for restoring skin health and clarity always includes three critical components: a gentle cleanser, an ingredient to balance skin pH, and an oil specifically rich in linoleic acid. Together, these three components ensure the skin is detoxified, repaired, protected, and hydrated, and are further enhanced by targeted actives such as antioxidants, antimicrobials, and exfoliants.
As the SANA SKIN community has expanded, we have learned a lot from our customers. Together, through trial and error, we've identified the most effective (and most problematic) ingredients for various skin types, including and most importantly, acne-prone skin. This has allowed us to expand our offerings in a community-led way, releasing formulas that are not only what our customers want to see from us, but also the products with the ingredients that our customers have come to know and love through experience.
Combined with intensive research on skin physiology, we believe we have curated a simple, holistic, yet, effective 3-step system that encompasses all the necessary components for healthy, radiant, clearer skin.
For acne-prone skin, we recommend a combination of our Purity cleanser, Flora mist, and Clarity serum. If you are sensitive to strong smells, we recommend swapping out or diluting the Clarity serum with our Vitale elixir.
For all other skin types, we recommend a combination of our Purity cleanser, Flora mist, and Vitale elixir.

Dispense 2-3 pumps of the Purity cleanser. Ensure the skin is dry, then smooth across the entire face (and neck + body, if desired). Gently massage the product into the skin using small circles. For best results, let Purity sit on the skin as a mask for penetration of active ingredients, rinsing off after 5-10 minutes until the water runs clear. Follow with a second cleanse, if necessary.

Best facial cleanser I have ever tried! Feels super good on my face and smells amazing! Always look forward to washing my face with this cleanser.
This cleanser has forever changed my skin! So soothing and actually feels like my skin is getting a deep clean and also getting hydration at the same time. I've noticed a huge change in the feel of my skin after using this product. The clean ingredients are an extra bonus too!
This is the best cleanser hands down. My face never feels stripped and dry after using. Highly recommend.

A note from Sophia
When I discovered oil cleansing, I fell in love.
Oil-to-milk cleansers (a.k.a oils combined with a surfactant agent that causes the oil to turn to a luxurious milk on contact with water) were revolutionary to me when I discovered them. They dissolved all of my makeup and rinsed off so easily, leaving the perfect base for deeper cleanse.
So, when I began the R&D for Sana Skin's flagship cleanser, I knew I wanted to somehow blend my love for oil cleansing with the principles of skin barrier repair + pH balance which are so necessary for an effective skincare regimen. As a result, the cleanser had to be gentle, pH-balanced, but still deep-cleansing enough to prepare the skin for the active ingredients to follow.
In the Purity cleanser, I believe we've achieved this. And the love the formula has received since is just proof of that!
