Velvet Cleansing Milk


A cushiony cleanser that leaves skin clear, moisturized, and healthy.

Velvet Cleansing Milk is a moisturizing, non-foaming cleanser that gently removes makeup, dirt and grime without damaging your skin’s natural barrier.

A gentle cleanse without the tight, squeaky feeling.

A rich emulsion comes together to bring this cushiony, creamy cleanser to life.

How it works

Cleansing is one of the most important steps in any skincare routine. A good cleanser removes dirt, makeup, and residue from the surface of your skin without disrupting your skin’s natural lipid barrier.

Foaming cleansers can remove too much from your skin, leaving your face feeling dry, tight, stripped, or squeaky. They can even damage your skin barrier, leading to symptoms like dehydration, acne, and increased sensitivity.

Velvet Cleansing Milk is a rich, emollient cream cleanser that effectively removes dirt, grime, and other buildup while leaving your skin’s natural oils in place. Its cleansing power comes from Olive Oil PEG-7 Esters, a water-soluble form of olive oil that gently bonds to grime on your face and rinses cleanly away. 

Fortified with chamomile, aloe, and rice bran oil, it’s a soothing, purifying cleanser that won’t dry out your skin or leave a film. 

pH: ~5.0

Is it right for me?

Velvet Cleansing Milk is an effective but gentle cleanser for skin that's dry, normal, or moderately oily. It may not provide enough cleansing power for very oily skin. 

If you use the double cleansing method, Velvet Cleansing Milk is a second cleanser. It's strong enough to remove sunscreen and light makeup, but waterproof makeup may require an oil cleanser or makeup remover first.

All Stratia products are free of common irritants like fragrance, alcohol, and essential oils.

Might be my favorite cleanser ever

I absolutely love this cleansers. I have super sensitive skin, and this cleanser is one of the only ones that has never left my skin feeling dry and irritated. In fact, I use this to calm my skin down after my cat snuggles up with my and leaves me with an allergic reaction all over my cheeks. I don't wear makeup, but I do wear a non-waterproof sunscreen, and this cleanser leaves me feeling perfectly clean at the end of the day.

Excellent for sensitive skin!

My skin is extremely sensitive, especially with cleansers. To keep my skin from freaking out, I need a low pH gentle cleanser without fragrance. My old favorite was the Cerave hydrating cleanser, but I only use cruelty free products and found out that Cerave was no longer cruelty free. I tried this cleanser and it is actually BETTER than my old favorite! It's non-stripping, low pH, and manages to be hydrating while also cleaning the skin. It's a lotion type texture, but it rinses clean and does not leave any residue. The only con for me is the price, but that's just because I'm a cheapskate when it comes to cleansers. I have yet to find a more affordable one that I like as much as this cleanser though, so I'll likely start purchasing this one again. If you have sensitive and/or dry/dehydrated skin, you should definitely try this cleanser!

Love product but how can it be more sustainable

I love this product. I struggled with acne all my life. Turns out I was washing my face with too harsh of products that were stripping my skin. Thanks to this product along with my dermatologist my acne is much improved. I just wish that the packaging wasn’t plastic. If this could be in a bar form or in more sustainable packaging it would be a 5 star for me.

This is a little like CeraVe's cleansing product for dry skin except that it removes makeup! Hooray! This cleans without making my skin feel great and I would totally re-purchase!
