Make yourself clear. Our lightweight oil deeply cleanses—dissolving surface impurities and makeup, even reducing the look of large pores—without leaving skin feeling tight or dry. Eliminates toxins and exfoliates skin’s surface to jump-start cell turnover for a clear, balanced complexion. Features skin-clarifying ingredients such as:

  • Charcoal, a robust cleansing agent, to draw out and trap impurities.

  • Seawater and grape seed oil, rich in energizing minerals, to combat the everyday buildup of toxins on skin while boosting circulation and cell renewal.

  • Our own innovative cleansing technology transforms the oil from black to white when it meets water to show you it’s working.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yoga Guy! I was a EL user I think about 30 years ago and stopped. I found an unopened bar of sea mud soap and starting using it. Then I went to one of the dept. stores that carried it and bought a little sample thing for $10. so that I could try the Detox cleansing oil. I've come up with my own way to use it and it seems to work out just fine. I fill my sink with warm water and splash my face about 20 times then I add the oil to my hands and apply and then use the soap over it and massage. Then I splash the water in the sink with the water with the soap in it. One the reasons I stopped is because the bar of soap was made smaller. It use to be hugh. My skin looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow I am absolutely in love with this detoxifying cleansing oil. I used it on my dry skin and took off a whole face full of makeup, the makeup just melted right off. And then I finished up by rinsing my face with warm water. My face felt super clean I have oily skin and it left my skin feeling oil-free even into the next morning. The scent is a clean Softsoap be sent, and even though it says it's cleansing oil I didn't get the feeling of oil it was just a very soft soap. Highly recommend this product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Cleanser for Clogged Skin Even though I'm in my sixties, my skin has remained VERY oily and VERY clogged. Over the years, I've tried many cleansers, including the Beta Wash. Detoxifying Cleanser is the best! It cleanses and removes dirt quickly, without drying my skin. I use the Conditioning Preparation afterward, and my skin is clean and balanced. Thanks, Erino Laszlo!

What is the chemical makeup difference between this and active phelytil oil

Asked by: Nancy50
It is thicker than the phelytil oil. I have both oils and alternate days with my routine with the sea mud bar of soap. I like the phelytil oil more since it is thinner.

I have used the Seamud soap for 30 years.  Can I use this oil cleanser without the soap sometimes?  Or do I have to use with soap?

Asked by: Jconklin
While you can use the Sea Mud by itself, the Double Cleanse does work most effectively as a pair. The main importance is to ensure you rinse off all of the cleanser.
