What makes Clearly Basics different?
We’ve taken products that are often EXCLUSIVELY sold in a dermatologist’s office at 3x the price and made it available for everyday consumers. We select USP certified ingredients when potency matters, but less expensive cosmetic grade ingredients when purity is not a concern.
The most frequent comment we get in our reviews is that users have tried everything and nothing has come close to the results they have seen with our formulations.
Why is the Balancing Cleanser different?
Loaded with fruit extracts that balance the skin, this soap-free formulation is one of the most gentle washes that contain AHA and BHA‘s. It leaves your skin perfectly primed without stripping away natural oils.
Ingredient synergy is the reason why our products are more effective than other products may which may also contain salicylic acid or glycolic acid. All Clearly Basics products contain medical grade ingredients + synergy + botanical complexes that balance the formulations so that they do not irritate your skin. Most companies use only salicylic acid or glycolic acid but not BOTH ingredients in their face wash.
