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.

Gentle cleanser

Very gentle and non-stripping cleanser. I love to use this when I’m not wearing any makeup or just need to give my skin a break. (: no irritation whatsoever to my sensitive skin.

Velvety goodness

This cleanser is soft, soothing, and leaves my skin feeling moisturized and healthy. My skin is sensitive and has some redness and keratosis pilaris. This cleanser along with the Soft AHA has gone a long way in smoothing out my skin and calming it down.

Lovely, gentle cleanser

This product works well as an AM cleanse for me - very gentle, calming and hydrating. I find it to be much more nourishing and creamy/thick than my LRP Hydrating Gentle Cleanser.

Normally can’t be bothered to ever write a review on any product but I just need people to know how amazing this cleanser is. I used to take it for granted at first by trying other cleansers out of curiosity. As soon as I would go back go the velvet cleansing milk, OVERNIGHT any active blemishes, redness, and/or dryness would instantly disappear. This stuff is legitimately good for your skin. I’ve since then seen the light and have been faithful to this wonderful cleanser. Stratia please don’t go out of business or sell to a large conglomerate who would butcher the formula.
