The formula harnesses the power of the Japanese luffa fruit, a natural beauty multitasker beloved by Japanese women for centuries. Ground fibers from the fruit exfoliate, helping to turn over dead skin cells while purifying and decongesting pores. The fruit extract also beautifies and conditions skin. Japanese wild rose works to visibly tighten pores and smooth skin texture, while Japanese leopard lily helps minimize excess oil.

Harvested under a full autumn moon, the water of luffa fruit has been prized as a favorite natural skincare ingredient in Japan since the Edo period. It is beloved for its clarifying and moisturizing properties.

The Deep Cleanse harnesses this time-tested ingredient in this refreshing, easy-to-use daily exfoliating cleanser.

This pure, oil-free formula is non-irritating, non-sensitizing, dermatologist tested, and cruelty-free. It is formulated without synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, urea, DEA, of TEA.
