Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser
For Dry to Very Dry Skin Residue Free
Lightweight cleansing oil for face and body
Traditional oil cleansers use oils and other nourishing ingredients to help hydrate and thoroughly remove impurities, dirt, and excess oil that can build up on your skin. We recommend choosing a formula that combines oil-based ingredients and surfactants, like our Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser, which cleanses without disrupting the skin barrier or stripping the skin of essential moisture.
Developed with dermatologists, CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser transforms from an oil into a soft lathering foam. It gently yet effectively cleanses the skin’s surface and removes excess oil without leaving your skin feeling tight or dry. This oil cleanser with three essential ceramides helps to lock in moisture and helps maintain the skin’s protective barrier. It also features beneficial ingredients for healthy-looking skin, such as squalane oil, triglyceride, and hyaluronic acid.
CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil is ideal for dry to very dry skin but is also suitable for sensitive skin, eczema-prone skin, and baby skin (3+ months). It’s also non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, and residue-free. Using our foaming oil cleanser as part of your daily routine can help support comfortable, hydrated skin on your face and body.

With an oil to foam formula, this cleanser is perfect for all skin types—a rarity in the cleanser aisle! It leaves my patients’ skin clean, removing all makeup, dirt and debris without over-drying. Sometimes oil cleansers can be heavy for humid summers, but what I love about this cleanser is that it suds up to a perfect lather—effectively cleansing the skin of any dirt, oil and debris while keeping the skin barrier intact.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is an oil cleanser?Traditional oil cleansers, as the name suggests, are oil-based cleansing formulas. These products usually emulsify (lather) into a foaming texture when applied with water. They often feature plant-based oils in their formulas, such as squalane oil. CeraVe’s Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser combines oil-based ingredients and surfactants in an efficacious cleansing formula.
What are the benefits of an oil cleanser?
Oil cleansers offer multiple benefits when used as part of your daily cleansing routine. For starters, oil cleansers are effective at breaking down oil-based residue that can build up on your skin (such as makeup). They also can help hydrate your skin while they cleanse. This means you can wash your face without leaving your skin feeling tight, dry, or uncomfortable. Because of their hydrating properties, oil cleansers are a popular choice for people with dry skin. Those with sensitive skin may want to consider them, too.
How does oil cleanser work?Oil cleansers work on the scientific principle of “like dissolves like.” This principle explains that, essentially, water dissolves water and oil dissolves oil. CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser uses oil-based ingredients to break down oil-based impurities on your skin’s surface (like makeup, sunscreen, and excess sebum) and surfactants to break down water-based ingredients.
Will an oil cleanser clog my pores?
When choosing an oil-based cleanser, we recommend looking for options that are labeled “non-comedogenic,” such as CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser. This indicates that the oil cleanser is formulated not to clog your pores.
Can I use CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser on my body?
Yes, CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser is suitable for use as a face cleanser and body cleanser. You can use this product as the first step in your facial care or body care routine. After cleansing, continue with the rest of your routine, which should include a non-comedogenic moisturizer and broad-spectrum sunscreen.
Will CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser leave behind an oily residue?Our Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser is formulated to rinse off easily, without any greasy residue. It leaves your skin feeling soft, clean, and refreshed. Just like any other cleanser, it’s important to apply this product correctly (per the instructions on the packaging) and wash it off completely after use. We recommend rinsing with lukewarm water and gently drying your skin with a clean, soft towel before continuing with the rest of your skincare routine.
