Less Cleansing Clay
Less Cleansing Clay
The Less Cleansing Clay is a spa-quality cleansing clay from the Moroccan Atlas Mountains. It features a unique microstructure and absorbency and cleanses thoroughly without drying out the skin. For soft and balanced skin.
Soaps, shower gels and shampoos—like detergents and household cleaners—clean with surfactants. Surfactants are substances that dissolve dirt and fats by breaking up their surface tension. However, surfactants also attack the fragile skin barrier, as it also consists of lipids. The skin then loses its natural self-protection, which causes the skin's moisture to evaporate and bacteria to penetrate the skin.
Cleansing with Less works in a fundamentally different way. Instead of breaking up pollutants and fats, they are absorbed. Mixed with water and applied to the skin, the particles of the Less Cleansing Clay powerfully bind impurities, toxins and excess fats, while leaving intact the delicate skin barrier. The result is soft and deeply cleansed skin that is not disturbed in its natural function as a moisture reservoir and protective shield.
For head-to-toe cleansing, place two scoops of Less Cleansing Clay in a shallow bowl and fill with four scoops of warm to hot water. Without stirring, allow the clay to swell and cool for three minutes. Spread the fine mud over the body and face in the shower, sparing the eyes and lips. Rinse thoroughly after an application time of 2 to 4 minutes. The skin is deeply cleansed, refined and velvety soft.
For a quick facial cleansing, simply put a little Less Cleansing Clay in the palm of your hand and add a little water. Then spread on wet face and rinse with water. For external use only.

"What immediately struck me about Less was how different it was: how simple, true and honest. And it makes so much sense: why am I putting cream after cream on my skin to not see much of a difference except a very shiny face? So I tried Less to find after a month using my skin felt balanced, normal and content for the first time since I was a young girl.
I had been using eye cream for 30 years and it made no difference, I still had dark circles under my eyes. After using Less for a month, the dark circles were gone. I couldn't believe it. My skin feels wonderful and radiant, my pores are clean and I feel more balanced and less cluttered. I love the Less Cleansing Clay and the Less Face Oil, I think they are genius.”
"What immediately caught my attention was something that Dr David Scherf, the founder of Less, had said: 'The people with the best skin are usually the people who use the fewest products.' After putting some thought into it, I realized: That is really true!
Since using Less, I feel that my skin has gained some kind of natural glow. I use the Less Face Oil every day and I use the Less Cleansing Clay once or twice a week. On the days when I combine the clay with the oil, my skin looks like I just came out of a spa treatment, I really love it!"
"My first touch point with Less was the packaging. It was so different: so calm, sensual, without a logo, without promises, without plastic. I had never seen such a reduction and purity in skin care before.
Every morning and evening I take a little bit of the Less Cleansing Clay to cleanse my face. I then use the Less Face Oil with lots of water. In Japan, rituals are given much attention and joy. It is about taking time and consciously experiencing every action, every detail. Less is a daily source of peace and joy for me."
"The skin is our largest organ. But in today's world of consumption, our skin is usually "over-consumed" by all the many different products advertised by the major cosmetics companies. What makes Less different from all other skincare brands is that it is not aimed at the customer consuming as much as possible, but as little as possible. Less is also the only skincare brand I know that is completely additive-free. This reduction and purity is very dear to me.
I love the Less Face Oil—it provides everything the skin needs and also has a natural matting effect. The skin becomes smoother and the skin texture is refined. The better the skin, the less make-up is needed."
