How It Works

Your daily cleansing routine should be much more than just a way to remove traces of the day from your skin. By design, Kate’s Salicylic Cleanser delivers noticeable improvements to your complexion while cleansing. For a deep clean that also keeps skin balanced and prevents tightness or dryness, we’ve formulated this cleanser with gentle, sulfate-free foaming ingredients derived from coconut, and paired them with anti-aging hyaluronic acid to help skin retain the natural hydration that keeps it plump and smooth.

Salicylic acid mildly exfoliates the skin each time you cleanse, at a rate that is safe and beneficial for daily use. This not only refines and clarifies the skin, it also makes skin highly receptive to the delivery of the anti-aging actives we’ve packed into this formula, including firming DMAE, refining alpha lipoic acid, and protective antioxidants like coffee fruit and green tea extract.

Skin prone to acne, clogged pores, or occasional breakouts will experience the healing and anti-inflammatory benefits of tea tree oil and zinc for a clearer complexion.

Use morning and night for noticeable improvements and as a perfect first step in your daily beauty regimen.

Great products! I love everything I bought. ❤️


I really appreciate Kate Ryan products, but this one did not work for my very oily skin. I have unusually oily skin, blackheads and whiteheads. After washing with this cleanser, my t zone still had sebum buildup on it. I tried double washing, and still had sebum buildup, so I had to use an astringent to clean the remaining sebum in my t zone. What I liked about this product was the nice fragrance and that it rinsed very easily with no residue. This is not the right face cleanser my skin.

Best face wash ever!!

I have used Cetaphil for years and I switched to Kate Ryan face wash and I’m hooked! 10/10 my face feels so refreshed after! Definitely recommend.

Salicylic Cleanser

Love this cleanser! Deep cleans without the tight, drying feeling.


I have been using the Kate Ryan Salicylic Cleanser since Kate Ryan began. It is the only cleanser I have used for years now and when the new formula came out, I had no idea I would love it even more. I just finished my first bottle of the new formula (which lasted me several months). Now that I've run out, I've had several breakouts so I can't wait to get a new bottle. This cleanser has been one of the best things for my face, which is prone to those blind sore pimples under the skin. In addition to keeping my breakouts at bay, it doesn't dry out my skin; in fact my skin feels nice and soft after using it, not tight like some salicylic cleansers. In the past with other cleansers I've had issues with burning and redness but never with Kate Ryan. I LOVE my Kate Ryan products!
