DHC’s bestselling, cult-classic Deep Cleansing Oil is truly one of a kind. The original Japanese first step oil cleanser melts away makeup and dissolves impurities, leaving your skin clean, soft and radiant.      

The 100% organic olive-oil based formulation works on the scientific premise that “like attracts like.” Applied with dry hands on your dry face, this rich, naturally golden-hued olive oil-based cleanser binds with dirt and effortlessly breaks down sunscreen, sebum and stubborn makeup, like waterproof mascara and eyeliner, without clogging your pores. The water-soluble formula rinses away with zero oily residue. Its silky feel and delicate, natural rosemary aroma make washing your face feel like a luxurious spa experience.

This botanical formulation features antioxidant-rich organic olive oil and vitamin E to hydrate, soften and protect against free radical damage, and rosemary leaf oil to invigorate and refresh. Also works great as a makeup brush cleaner.

Ideal for all skin types.

From $14.00 $14.00 - $28.00 To $28.00

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really melts off makeup gently I use this daily and each time I remove my makeup. My face does not feel clear of makeup without using it prior to washing with olive soap. Have been using for years. I apply and leave on for a few minutes for extra moisture before rinsing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I’ve been using this cleanser for many years. It’s a wonderful combination of moisturizing and refreshing. It also give me therapeutic benefits as a facial massage every time I use it! It’s my go to cleanser, and I’ve given bottles to practically everyone I know!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indispensable I've been using this EVERY SINGLE NIGHT since about 1993. I just turned 54 and 30 year olds ask me my beauty routine. DNA is only 20% of the equation. This cleanser and Olive Virgin Oil are 2 items I've never gone without. I have definitely rotated a couple trendy products in over the past few years, but THESE two products can't be cast aside. If you do the double wash, this must be one of your cleansers. If you do a single wash, this should be your only daily cleanser. Deep Cleansing Oil + Olive VIrgin Oil=the most balanced, supple skin.

When does DHC cleansing oil expire? What is its shelf life? 

Asked by: nickname
Hello! Our products have an expiration date, and a PAO date. Expiration dates are monitored at distribution level and are monitored by LOT numbers. LOT numbers are typically made up of letters and/or numbers, and can be used to determine expiration dates. Please contact our Customer Care team and a representative will be happy to gather the LOT information from you and verify its expiration date. To determine the time in which an opened product is best used by, please refer to the PAO illustration on the packaging. PAO (period after opening) is a universal symbol that resembles a jar with its lid partially open, stamped with a number in the middle. The number represents how many months a product is best used within. For best results, we recommend using an opened bottle of Deep Cleansing Oil within 6 months. If you have additional questions, please contact us at 1-800-342-2273 and we'll be happy to assist.

Is cleansing oil safe to keep for use in shower?

Asked by: Chrisjenn
Hello. Although generally speaking, it's safe to store Deep Cleansing Oil in the shower, excessive humidity can contribute to the product going rancid. If it typically takes you six months to finish a bottle of Deep Cleansing Oil, (the suggested time in which we recommend using it after opening), we recommend considering storing it outside the shower and please remember to avoid allowing water to leak into the product. We hope our reply proves to be useful, and if you have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out again. Thank you for choosing DHC and have a beautiful day!

Is the bottle recyclable?

Asked by: jljk

Does this product have a limited shelf life? I like to buy multiples to save on shipping but I'm not sure how long it stays effective when stored.
