Skin pH Friendly + Fragrance-Free

Blank Slate Gentle Gel Cleanser

A low foam, amber-gel cleanser created to target that sweet spot between gentleness and cleansing power. This formula is the brainchild of the chemists looking for a one-and-done, dependable cleanser and vetted by CC Hatchery participants who self-identify as sensitive skin types. The cleanser removes sunscreen and daily makeup as a simple one-and-done. SLS, SLES, and coco betaine free.

How to use

Blank Slate got its name because every good skincare routine should start with a dependable cleanser that's gentle but powerful enough to remove daily sunscreen and makeup.


Use 1-2 pumps morning and night as a first step to your routine. Apply to wet skin and massage on face in a circular motion. Rinse with water. 


For long-wear makeup users, Blank Slate is the perfect addition to any double cleanse routine. Remove makeup with your favorite makeup remover, cleansing balm, or cleansing oil and finish with Blank Slate to prep skin for the rest of your skincare goodness.
