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. Harsh foaming cleansers can strip away your skin’s natural oils, leaving your skin feeling tight and dry.Velvet Cleansing Milk is a creamy cleanser that utilizes a water-soluble form of olive oil to gently bond to grime on your face and rinse it cleanly away.


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.

The perfect cleanser!

The perfect cleanser! I have spent way too much and too long using harsh cleansers or messy oil techniques, and am so glad I tried this one! It's effective, soothing, simple, and a great price. Sometimes I follow up with micellar water to remove the last traces of heavy waterproof eye makeup, but this cleanser mostly gets everything without feeling stripping or drying. You could compare it to Cerave's gentle cleanser for a mass market alternative in terms of texture and effects, though I prefer Stratia's product overall. Highly recommended!

One amazing product!

Helped calm the hormonal cystic acne I was dealing with after having a baby and Mirena. This face wash was the only thing that helped! So much love for this product!!

Solid, basic cleanser

This is my go-to cleanser for daily use. It's not stripping, nothing for my sensitive skin to react to - will continue to be a part of my regular routine!

Best cleanser I’ve tried

I love this. It’s so gentle and feels like silk on my skin. I never feel dry afterwards. I’ve tried many, many cleansers but this is by far the best. I keep one by the sink and one in the shower. They last a long time because you only need a single pump. Thank you for making such a lovely product!

Finally, I have a cleanser with a soft texture that feels gentle and luxurious while being used, but that actually cleans my face AND has no residue or drying effect. I couldn’t be happier.
