Double Alpha Hydroxy Cleanser with Green Tea Extract and Aloe
Clinical-Grade-Lactic-Acid-for-Skin
Glycolic-Acid
Plant-Based-Alpha-Hydroxy
Lactic-Acid-for-Face
Alpha-Hydroxy-Acid

119ml/4fl oz

Precise skin purification, tailored to collaborate with retinoids.

 

PURPOSE: GENTLE CLEANSING AND RESURFACING FOR A HEALTHY, YOUTHFUL GLOW.

5% plant-based alpha hydroxy glycolic acid 
2% plant-based alpha hydroxy lactic acid

This exfoliating cleanser is tailored to collaborate with the retinoids in our Enzyme-Active Retinol™ Night Serum. Unlike physical scrubs that essentially scratch your face in irregular patterns, the two Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) used in this cleanser (glycolic acid and lactic acid) are proven by dermatologists to:

– Gently and precisely exfoliate just dead skin cells
– Return the soft, glow of healthy skin
– Multiply the skin-smoothing effects of Enzyme-Active Retinol
– Increase dermal thickness and thus, ironically the skin's ability to retain moisture

    Ingredients listed in product image. This cleanser can be paired safely with beta hydroxy acid cleansers like salicylic. 

    Tip: Use as leave-on mask for extraordinary chemical purification.

    "I suffer from dry skin and eczema, so frankly, I’m always a bit hesitant to try new cleansers—so many are packed with ingredients that strip my face of its moisture! When I saw “aloe” in the name of Protocol’s cleanser, I knew I should give it a go. Aloe has never done me wrong and has been a true savior to my skin. With this cleanser, I feel confident that all the icky stuff I’ve absorbed throughout the day will be washed away without any of my moisture going down the drain with it."

    CLEAN, PRISTINE, & INTELLIGENT SKINCARE

    I cant even express to you how much I’ve battled with hormonal cystic acne, dark hyperpigmentation, dry, and oily skin. I’ve spent thousands on peels, creams, serums, pills, and countless sad evenings researching ingredients and how they can alter your skin and gut microbiome. Through the years I’ve had to learn the hard way how paramount clean and well preserved ingredients are. After 13 years of an arduous journey- I’ve landed, with confidence, on Protocol. As we all know, Vitamin C is a cute but unstable monster, retinol is an irritating acid at certain percentages, HA is tricky without the right moisture/reactive combination but Protocol has mastered all of it with scientific sophistication. Aside from its CLEAN (non carcinogenic, paraben free, hormone-disrupter free) ingredients, the packages are ingenious (check out their page on the way no light or air penetrate the serums). Also, their customer care is the sweetest, most understanding, and most responsive I’ve dealt with.

    Listen, I don’t usually freak like this over a brand but I’m telling you it will change your life and simplify your complicated skin routine. I look younger, I look fresher, I look brighter, and I feel like I can just take a breath and trust this brand. You owe it to yourself to try this. My skin made me sad for so long and with this I’m getting my confidence back every day.

    I can't believe it

    This is unbelievable. I'm 32. I've been using retinol products and "Retin-'A'" 0.05 for about 6 years. I microneedle and get red light therapy. This is the best retinol I have ever used. I've seen more results from one week of use than I have from months of "Retin-'A'". I can also use it every night without drying which is insane. I'll report back in 6 months but this is not a drill. It is. The best.

    Fan for life.

    I've had issues with my skin for the past two or so years, I think because of damage done to my skin barrier from using Biologique Recherche p50, and then other chemical exfoliants. My skin was very, very angry with me, and I responded with panic and more products. Wrong. I finally gave my skin some space to breath (thank you stay-at-home orders), and didn't put anything besides sunscreen on for two weeks - highly recommend. The first products I used again were Protocol and Avène Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream (so good for sensitive skin), and my skin has never looked better. Like ever.

    I have never seen these types of results, yet alone this quickly (about three months with Retinol/Vit C/Moisturizer). I use the Retinol every second or third night so I don't have bitchy skin deja-vu. The cleanser is magic, truly. So worth it. I just started using it, and every other night works best so far. I think I started out putting too much of the moisturizer on (I feel like this might have been part of my problem all along), but now that I take more time to apply instead of just slapping it on I am much happier with how my skin really absorbs the product. I use it during the daytime, and Cicalfate at night. My skin is completely different now - blemish free, less redness, super plump and strong, and I worry far less about it (the best part).

    Protocol's customer service is also fantastic in general, they get that it's 2020 and they're a skincare brand. Thank you!!

    Amazing Results!

    My 43 year old stressed acneic aging skin has never looked better! The protocol line of products has brought new life to my problem skin. I feel such a sense of rejuvenation since using this line! My skin is softer, more supple, and brighter. I also see fewer fine lines and acne scars!

    Unbelievable!!!

    I am 63 and I’m a skin care junkie. I have bought & used low & high end products. I bought the set and used it just today and the results are remarkable! I know immediately if something is good, bad or ok. This is undoubtedly the best skincare I’ve ever used. My skin is glowing after just the first day. I’m a forever customer. Ty so much for your products ❤️❤️❤️❤️
