Why you need it:
Zelens Shiso Balm Radiance Cleanser is a moisturising liquid cleansing balm formulated to gently cleanse the skin and remove make-up. This daily cleanser transforms into a light, moisturising milk when mixed with water to purify the skin while retaining its natural moisture. It is formulated with Shiso (Japanese mint). Shiso is a plant rich in polyphenols and triterpenoids to deliver excellent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-allergic properties. It is also infused with a proprietary blend of essential oils including Shiso oil and Olive oil which are rich in Omega 3 and Omega 9 fatty acids respectively.
Soap-free. Dermatologist tested.

I designed it to cleanse the skin without stealing away its natural moisture. The balm-to-milk formula makes cleansing a daily ritual, paramount to healthy skin.” – Dr. Marko Lens

How to use:
Apply to face and neck using gentle circular motions, avoiding the delicate eye area. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. Follow with the next step in your skincare routine.
Base: A 100% natural, vegetable-derived emulsion based on sugar chemistry.
Shiso oil: The oil extracted from the seeds of Shiso is the richest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. It replenishes moisture, reinforces the skin’s natural barrier and shows strong restructuring, repairing, healing and soothing properties.
Shiso (Perilla frutescens): Shiso, also known as Japanese mint, is a plant rich in polyphenols (particularly rosmarinic acid) and triterpenoids (particularly ursolic acid). We use an extract obtained from Shiso leaf which demonstrates excellent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-allergic properties. Shiso leaf has been used for years in Kampo medicine due to strong detox properties, and its ability to soothe sensitive skin and prevent skin reactivity.
Olive oil: Extracted from the olive fruit is rich in omega-9 (oleic acid). Shows moisturising, nourishing, softening and healing properties. Due to a high amount of natural phenols, it also acts as a good antioxidant.
Yeast: A filtrate of the lysate (the solution consisting of the material released from cell lysis; cellular disruption) obtained by the fermentation of yeast (Saccharomyces). Rich in amino acids, essential minerals, beta-glucan and vitamins. Possesses anti-inflammatory, revitalising and protective properties. Increases cell respiration and metabolism, stimulates oxygen consumption and enhances skin repair.
Glycerin: A vegetable-derived molecule naturally present in the skin. Acts as an excellent humectant, a substance that attracts moisture from the environment and increases the amount of water in the surface layers of the skin.
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride: An ester derived from coconut oil and glycerin. Shows excellent emollient, moisturising and skin-replenishing properties.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol): A naturally derived vitamin with powerful antioxidant and photoprotective properties. Tocopherol is an excellent moisturiser that helps to reduce water loss and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier.
