The Only Vegan Acne Face Wash You Need

We’ve all experienced acne at one point in our lives. It can be stressful finding the perfect skincare routine for your skin type that actually works. Not to mention the overflow of different acne fighting face washes on the market to choose from. Although it can all be overwhelming, all we want to do is nurture our skin. We kept this in mind when creating our very own vegan acne cleanser.

Some face washes include harsh ingredients like benzoyl peroxide which can be too irritating and inflaming to your skin. Harsh ingredients are what you want to avoid when you’re trying to nurture your skin. This is why we came up with our Phyla Phresh Gel Cleanser.



“Their cleanser is one of the most unique ‘acne cleansers’ that I ever found because opposed to it being really foamy, really drying, stripping, it’s actually a very hydrating and gentle formula.”
– Hyram

The Phyla Phresh Gel Cleanser is an effective vegan face wash for acne that scrubs off blemishes without scrubbing off your skin. It provides a light exfoliation with its 2% Salicylic Acid solution. The vegan cleanser is formulated to be gentle and friendly to even the most sensitive skin, leaving your face feeling calm and bright, with a zesty tingle from tea tree oil. It’s the perfect prep for Phortify – our groundbreaking probiotic serum.

Meet the key ingredients of our vegan face wash below.



Salicylic Acid is an FDA-approved ingredient to treat and prevent acne. Its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to deeply penetrate the skin to draw out any dirt, dead skin cells, and other impurities makes it one of the most favored skincare ingredients for acne.

Being the star of our vegan face wash for acne, the 2% Salicylic Acid solution is used to gently exfoliate the skin without causing skin damage. This is especially important when preventing blemishes, which can help to alleviate redness and swelling on your skin barrier.



Tea tree oil is most commonly used for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, helping to relieve the skin of irritation. This essential oil also helps to reduce oiliness, minimize pores, decrease inflammation, and relieve itchy skin.

While calming redness, inflammation, and relieving skin irritation, tea tree oil leaves you with smooth, clear skin that feels refreshed.



Sorbitol is a natural sweetener that’s most commonly derived from fruits and plants. It’s used as a conditioning agent for the skin, preventing moisture loss to obtain a healthier and hydrated microbiome. Along with a healthier microbiome, sorbitol helps improve skin texture and reduces signs of aging.
Overall, sorbitol leaves you with hydrated and dewy skin; all the good things.



Beta glucan works to calm and soothe irritated skin. With antioxidant properties, this ingredient firms and plumps fine lines and wrinkles in addition to boosting the skin barrier.
Along with the other key ingredients in our vegan facial cleanser, beta glucan is another hydrator. It’s similar to sorbitol where it reduces the loss of moisture by pulling in water into the skin barrier.

When choosing a cleanser that will tackle acne, but retain a healthy and moisturized skin barrier, you need to pay close attention to which type of ingredients it includes- an active acne fighting ingredient and hydrators being very important.
If you have been searching for a vegan face wash for acne, our Phresh Gel Cleanser is the perfect solution!
