Gel cleanser






Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA): Nature's Most Powerful Antioxidant

A fatty acid found in every cell in the human body, ALA reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores over time. Fat and water-soluble, ALA is highly absorbable and works alongside the body's own antioxidant system.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

Organic acids often found in plants, AHAs exfoliate and hydrate for brighter, younger-looking skin over time. They easily penetrate skin's surface to help eliminate dead cells and offer an alternative to harsh physical exfoliants.

Copper Complex: Powerful Skin Strengthening Hydration

An element found in almost every cell in the human body, copper helps visibly improve firmness and elasticity over time by hydrating and energizing skin. This unique element complex is designed for maximum bioavailability.

Lather a quarter-sized amount in hands and gently massage onto damp skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Use morning and evening. For best results, follow with your favorite Perricone MD treatment and moisturizer.


I just have started to use this cleanser. Normally I cleanse and then use a gentle daily exfoliant. Is it ok to follow this cleasner with a exfoliant?


Great question. It is absolutely ok to use with a daily exfoliant.

Really love this cleanser, use it all the time. I just wish it were packaged not in glass, but in plastic. Last week, my husband bobbled a bottle, it broke on the floor and I lost a half bottle. It's a little expensive to clean the bathroom floor with...


Thank you for contacting Perricone MD. We appreciate your feedback. Please understand that after much negative feedback we received from our customers about the plastic packaging, there was a decision to revert back to our "classic glass" packaging to improve user experience. These changes were made simply to try and accommodate our customers' packaging requests. Have a nice day!

Question-I have rosacea and I am African American (57 years old) and want to know if this is safe to use on my skin. My dermatologist has given me Metro Cream to use in the am and another in the am. What would you recommend for cleaning in am and pm? Thanks!

Charlotte the perfectionist

Great question! The Nutritive Cleanser is the cleanser we normally recommend to our clients with rosacea and in addition we also recommend the below treatments as well: High Potency Face Firming Activator Concentrated Restorative Cream Face Finishing Moisturizer Have a nice day!

How to use the cleanser with water rinse?


Thank you for contacting Perricone MD. I recommend wetting your hands with water, then 1-2 pumps of cleanser in the palm of your hand, lather then wash you face and rinse with water. Have a nice day!

Perricone MD Customer Care Specialist

Is this appropriate for someone who has mild rosacea? Thanks.


Great question! To help with the symptoms of rosacea the Nutritive Cleanser is what we normally recommend. If you are interested in other products recommended for Rosaea we also recommend these: High Potency Face Firming Activator Concentrated Restorative Cream Face Finishing Moisturizer Please visit our website for information on these products: www.perriconemd.com Have a nice day!

I've been keeping this product in my shower which I didn't realize till now that I wasn't supposed to. The product now has a really weird smell. Does this mean it has gone bad? Is it still safe to use? I still have about half the bottle left so I would hate to waste it.


Great question! From what you have described it sounds like your cleanser may be spoiled. The cleanser will begin to have a strong foul odor and spoil if it is exposed to moisture. We always recommend keeping all Perricone products in a dry moisture free climate and at room temperature. I recommend discarding the unused portion and going forward please always store in a dry moisture free atmosphere; such as a medicine cabinet or dresser top. Have a nice day!

Perricone MD Customer Care Specialist

Does the Nutritive Cleaner come in a larger bottle size like 12 ounces or larger?


Thank you for contacting Perricone MD. Yes, the Nutritive Cleanser 12 oz. supersize is available on our website: www.perriconemd.com for $75. Please understand that all supersize products are specialty items and not always available because we often sell out quickly; however, it is currently available. Don't miss out, place your order today! Have a nice day!

I'm over 55 and am trying to determine which cleanser would be best for me which cleaner would benefit me best. Plasma or Nurtitive? Although my husband says I look younger than someone my age, I have dropping upper eye lids, crows feet and some fine lines. I have deeper lined above my eye brows and in my forehead.


Thank you for contacting Perricone MD. You can't go wrong with either cleanser; both cleansers are phenomenal. Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment A 3-in-1, no-rinse treatment that deeply cleanses as it gently exfoliates and conditions, leaving skin instantly radiant. Nutritive Cleanser thoroughly cleans skin and removes all traces of make-up. It is formulated to reveal a brighter and smoother skin surface and helps to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. It leaves skin looking radiant and perfectly prepared for treatment. I hope this is helpful.

Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

I want the 12 fl. oz pump of the Nutritive cleanser, not the 6 oz. I want the neuropeptide firming cream as well...but I have phoned you four times and you keep hanging up on me.....whats the problem.


Thank you for contacting Perricone MD. From what you have described it sounds like there may have been a bad connection when you called the Customer Service Department; however, we are happy to help and are available daily from 8:00 am - 10:00 pm (EST). Please feel free to give us a call at your earliest convenience: 888-823-7837 Have a nice day!

Great lightweight cleanser. Use it with my Clairisonic. Lathers well and rinses off very easily; only need to use a little bit. Love it.




the only product I'll be using


so gentle that it's the first thing in the morning along with my toner and the last thing at night

I like the Citrus Cleanser better


The Nutritive Cleanser is fine for morning, but I think Citrus Cleanser is a deeper clean feeling.

Irritated my skin over the long haul...


At first this seemed great and seem to calm my red skin, but about 4 months in I developed flakey red patches that were very irritated. They only went away when I discontinued using this product

A nice gentle cleanser on the skin. Gets most of my makeup off and leaves it moisturized. Only bad thing is it stings the eyes.
