Gentle but thorough cleansing is an essential step in your skincare routine to remove complexion make up, pollution or other impurities, so the skin can absorb active ingredients and stay hydrated. This mild foaming cleanser is formulated to the precise skin health needs of darker skin tones as it deeply cleanses the skin without disturbing the delicate pH-balance or natural skin barrier function. Salicylic Acid softens dead skin and absorbs any excess sebum resulting in a more even and balanced complexion. Purslane, an anti-aging powerhouse, reduces the visible signs of irritation.


• The fine and delicate foam has a mild, deep-cleansing action, which does not upset the skin’s pH or natural moisture balance
• Salicylic Acid gently softens dead skin and deeply cleanses the skin, giving it a fresh and radiant appearance that is well prepared for serums and face cream
• Purslane reduces the visible signs of irritation


Shake well before use. Moisten your hands then apply two pumps of the foam into the palm of your hand and smooth it over your face in circular movements. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water.


Hyaluronic Acid, Purslane Extract, Salicylic Acid, Panthenol, Urea, Mild Tensides


“I created a gentle skin cleanser for darker skin tones that would not strip the complexion, nor interfere with the delicate pH and moisture balance of the skin.” - DR BARBARA STURM

    Darker skin tone foam cleanser

    I am obsessed with this face foam cleanser. I use it day and night and although my skin is extremely dry I never feel the slightest bit of dryness after using I also use the balancing toner from Dr. Sturm as well right after I use this foaming cleanser it so hydrating and I use it a lot! It doesn't hurt your eyes not irritating and it so helpful on dry skin! On my second bottle.

    5 stars because it’s not just a foam cleanser and that’s the truth

    Foaming cleanser

    I am truly and utterly obsessed with this darker skin tone foaming cleanser. This is my second bottle and I am truly in love with it as I keep re-purchasing it and I never thought I’d like a foaming cleanser. Oddly enough it does take off mascara / makeup and it is amazing because it’s effective but also very gentle and non irritating. For example if it gets in my eyes it doesn’t sting and deeply cleans although it’s not drying at all whatsoever. I have extremely dry skin, the amazing ingredients in it keep your skin clean and hydrated without that tight feeling after you wash your face. I have been using this darker skin tone foam cleanser in conjunction with the darker skin tone enzyme cleanser which is an amazing sturm cleanser as well. This is a great daily foaming cleanser that I have noticed has significantly improved the amount of melanin I have on my skin and my overall skin tone is much better. I have also had less acne breakouts using this foaming cleanser I use this once or twice a day and continue to love it!
