Why We Love It

The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser


A gentle cleansing product formulated to target makeup removal whilst leaving the skin feeling smooth and moisturised. The formula incorporates Squalane, alongside other lipophilic esters that are gentle, moisturizing, efficient in dissolving makeup and facial impurities and increasing the spreadability of the product. When rubbed between your palms for approximately 10-30 seconds, the product undergoes an important textural change from a balm-like consistency to a clear oil-like consistency. This allows the emulsifying sucrose esters in the formula to trap and blend the dissolved makeup and facial impurities with water for rinsing. Being non-comedogenic and soap-free, this formula is designed to be gentle enough for daily use, without over-drying the skin, making it suitable for all skin types.

The Formula Focus Ingredients


Mimicking the skin's own oil (sebum), this ingredient acts as a superb moisturiser without feeling heavy or greasy on the skin. It is an emollient and protects against Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL).

Tocopherol (Vitamin E)

Vitamin E is a naturally occurring component of healthy skin. It offers significant antioxidant properties to help defend from pollution and other environmental stressors that would otherwise weaken and cause unwanted changes in skin.
