This glycolic cleanser cleans the pores and offers mild exfoliation. Helps improve skin radiance and clarity. It also improves the appearance of skin texture with continued use.

Present at 10% in this cleanser, glycolic acid helps exfoliate the skin by breaking the bond holding cells together. Glycolic acid has a smaller molecule size compared to other alpha hydroxy acids (AHA). So the skin can absorb it quickly for faster results.

Plant-based oils – rosehip, sunflower, chamomile, grapefruit and lemon – are added in the formula for extra smoothness.

For: Cleansing, makeup removal, uneven skin tone, dullness and uneven texture.

Skin feel: Squeaky clean.

Skin Types:

  • Normal
  • Oily
  • Combination
  • Dry

CUSTOMER FOR LIFE

I’m going to be a customer for life so I hope you’re sticking around Open Formula! I've been using this product for months- it has really helped my complexion and keeps my skin clear. You might want to start out slowly with this product or stick with the oil cleanser if you have sensitive skin. You should expect some tingling at first but I love that feeling, it’s working!

SUCH A GREAT PRODUCT

I love this Glycolic Cleanser and am so pleased to have a company that is vegan and cruelty free. I personally prefer this gel cleanser over the oil cleanser but both are excellent products. Face is squeaky clean and overall usage has improved my skins texture. Thank you for the great product!!

FAST SHIPPING, GREAT PACKAGING

I highly recommend. My order was shipped quickly & packaged very well- which tells me this is a reputable company with high standards. Great pricing & availability on product. This product was recommended to me by a friend with acne who has been using it. I have been using it for less than one week and already see improvements already.

EVEN MY DERMATOLOGIST COMPLIMENTED ON MY SKIN

My dermatologist recommended an exfoliating cleanser for my skin but I couldn’t buy the one they sell in the office because it was crazy expensive. I couldn’t spend a lot of money on one product that I wasn’t even going to use everyday so I started to look around online and I was drawn to Open Formula because it said clinical skincare starting at $3 - well I can afford that! And if I didn’t like it I wouldn't have wasted so much money. Well, I ended up liking it and on my second purchase I bought 10 more products!!! Even my dermatologist noticed my skin was doing better and she thought I bought their cleanser, lol! So funny, thanks Open Formula - glad I found you!!!

MY GO TO CLEANSER

This is my go to cleanser! I have bought 3 bottles already. My skin now never looks dull or congested. My skin feels smoother and I swear this is making my sun spots fade. I even use this as a body wash, I love it so much. I know it’s strong enough to change my skin but gentle enough not to make it flake. This product is awesome!

JUST GOOD QUALITY PRODUCTS

This Glycolic wash has met my expectations. I thought it would be better to use during the summer months when my skin gets a little more oily. It keeps delivering results so I’m happy with it. Open Formula makes good quality products overall so whatever you choose you will not be disappointed.

CLEANSERS ARE GOOD

I was introduced to Open Formula from my fiance and I liked all the products we’ve ordered from here so far. I liked the Glycolic Cleanser at first but then it was too drying to use everyday so I alternate it with the oil cleanser and that seemed to work better.

NEEDS BETTER PACKAGING

I have been using the product for a while now and it works well. My issue is with the bottle itself. I wish it was a pump because when I squeeze it to get product out way too much comes out and I feel like its a waste and I don’t need that much. I used a glycolic wash that came with a pump and I hope they come out with one. It's such a waste of product.

KEEPS MY SKIN CLEAR

This is a great cleanser. It is gentle but the glycolic acid helps keep my skin clear.
