Formerly Hydra-Therapy Phelityl Cleansing Oil
Size: 190mL / 6.4 fl.oz.

The formula for this hydrating cleansing oil utilizes Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, a versatile emollient and excellent substitute for old-fashioned mineral oil, a once-common skin cleanser. Taking the place of mineral oil, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene works alongside three Hydrophobic Esters (Neopentyl Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Tridecyl Stearate, and Tridecyl Trimellitate) to draw out dirt and debris from skin. This oil cleanser works best when paired with the cleansing bar of your choice, as part of Dr. Laszlo’s signature Double Cleanse Method.

How to Use
Gently massage the oil cleanser in small circular motions on dry skin. Use on its own to cleanse skin, or follow with the cleansing bar of your choice as part of your Double Cleanse Method (recommended). Rinse skin and pat dry. Use morning and night. 
This gentle oil cleanser reinforces and preserves skin’s natural barrier, delivering a softer, smoother, refreshed complexion. While thoroughly cleansing skin of impurities, Phelityl Cleansing Oil doesn’t strip skin of its natural oils. Rather, it infuses skin with moisture.

Double Cleanse Method
When you use our cleansing oils with our cleansing bars, you get the perfect double cleanse. The nourishing oil grips excess skin surface oil, makeup, and other oily impurities without stripping your complexion of precious moisture. Next, the water-based bar removes any remaining residue, gently cleansing without drying. 

While double cleansing has grown in popularity of late, Dr. Laszlo was the first to promote a two-step cleanse via oil and soap bar over 50 years ago. The Double Cleanse Method has been an Erno Laszlo signature offering ever since. Learn more about the Erno Laszlo Double Cleanse here. 

Key Ingredients
10 Seed Oil Blend, Benefit: Nourishing + Protecting
An oil for cleansing, this is a beautiful, botanical blend of Safflower, Sunflower, Grape Seed, Hazelnut, Jojoba, Macadamia Nut, Kukui Nut, Sesame, Carrot Seed, and Chaulmoogra Oil. These hydrating cleansing oils have been chosen for their high essential fatty acid (EFA) content. Together, they help nourish and protect skin’s natural moisture barrier, delivering these vital EFA nutrients that are not naturally produced by the body. EFAs bring strengthening properties to the skin's protective lipid barrier, thereby locking in hydration. 

Vitamin E, Benefit: Antioxidant activity 
Vitamin E’s antioxidant benefits help soothe skin affected by daily environmental stressors, such as sun exposure and pollutants. Vitamin E helps to boost skin’s moisture barrier, protecting the complexion from outside elements, while also soothing and locking in moisture.
