Refining Cleanser

Esse Refining Cleanser is a lightly foaming clay wash that exfoliates while detoxifying. Bentonite clay particles act as superfine exfoliating granules while drawing toxins. Kalahari Melon oil adds essential omega-6 fatty acids to help maintain the skin’s lipid balance.

Detailed Information


There is a complex ecosystem of microbes that live on the surface of skin. The way in which skin is cleansed is one of the most important aspects in ensuring a healthy microbial environment exists. We have used ultra-mild surfactants that do not strip the natural lipid barrier of the skin. Harsh cleansing  opens up the skin to the opportunistic, non-beneficial microbes that accelerate ageing.

Active Treatment:

This is a deep-cleansing face wash that delivers a luxuriously rich lathered foam.
Effectively removes oil build up for oily and younger skins.
Bentonite clay has fine particles which help to gently exfoliate while cleansing. It also demonstrates detox properties.

Use & Tips:

Use daily and follow with toner and moisturiser. Ideally suited to detox and refine all skin types. Perfect for travel, it can also be used after physical activity for a deep clean or as a no-fuss cleanse for men.

    Perfect Cleanser

    I have used many high end French products. After having read Esse's story in a wellness magazine I wanted to give it a try. Being someone very sceptical mask cleansers I was very surprised how gentle it was on my skin, no irritation, redness or any other symptoms. After 4 times of using I could visibly see how radiant and pure my skin became! Not to mention the softness.

    I am very happy with my decision to give Esse a try.

    Thank you for your research and hard work.

    Highly recommended

    It is amazing! I like it so much. I own cream cleanser, gel cleanser also this refining cleanser. I do recommend this. It makes my skin refresh, clean and it is very effective on black-head. But feel a little dry after washing. I m dry skin.

    Skin rejuvenator

    This is by far the best cleanser I have ever used! Not only does it cleanse, but its amazing clay ingredient makes my skin feel absolutely amazing afterwards and soft and smooth! I can visibly see the difference. I like to use it especially after a long day, as it refreshes and rejuvenates my skin every time! Fantastic product, and a little goes a long way, extra value for money! X

    Easy to use, fresh and effective

    Ease of use, I use it in the shower every morning and my face feels fresh and lovely all day. I also like that it's in a plastic tube as I'm clumsy in the mornings(not a morning person) and often drop things.

    Highly recommended

    This is the best cleanser I’ve ever used (and I have used some expensive well-known French brands before converting to Esse…). Highly recommendable! Within 2 days from start using it, my skin was so smooth. My friends all tell me how good my skin looks – and I tell them it is thanks to Esse’s natural & organic products.
