NeoStrata Enlighten Ultra Brightening Cleanser


NeoStrata Enlighten Ultra Brightening Cleanser is a creamy wash that gently exfoliates your face, removes impurities, and brightens your skin.


  • Gently washes make-up, dirt, and grease from your skin.  
  • Exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal fresher, brighter skin underneath.
  • Contains 6% NeoGlucosamine for exfoliation and brightening
  • Refreshes your skin without drying it out


A NeoStrata clinical study of Ultra Brightening Cleanser used together with two other products in the Enlighten range, NeoStrata Enlighten Illuminating Serum and NeoStrata Enlighten Pigment Controller, showed significant improvements in skin tone in 92% of subjects within four weeks and fading of the appearance of dark spots in 73% of subjects within eight weeks.




All Skin Types

    Your skin consists of three main layers: the epidermis on the outside, the dermis below it, and below that the subcutaneous layer. The lower part of the epidermis constantly generates new skin cells, pushing older cells in the upper layers of the epidermis to the surface, where they eventually die. These dead skin cells form a protective layer, but they can also make your skin uneven and dull-looking. Ultra Brightening Cleanser has a gentle exfoliating effect to loosen those dead cells so that they wash off, exposing fresher skin beneath. The cleanser also lightens dark spots, evening out your skin tone and making your face look brighter.


    Use Ultra Brightening Cleanser twice daily. Apply a 10p-sized amount of cleanser to your skin, massage it gently into a lather that covers your whole face, and then rinse thoroughly with water. In the evening, you may want to double-cleanse using the same technique twice: the first cleanse removes makeup and dirt from the surface of your skin, whereas the second cleanse deep-cleans the skin itself.

    What is NeoGlucosamine?

    NeoGlucosamine is a non-acidic exfoliant also known as acetyl glucosamine. It offers similar exfoliating properties to alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) but is gentler on your skin than AHAs. NeoGlucosamine helps encourage cell turnover, reduces the visibility of dark spots and skin discolouration, and also helps your skin retain moisture. It is considered suitable for most skin types. 

    Why do I need to use sunscreen after exfoliating my skin?

    Exfoliating your skin removes the top layer of dead cells that have been protecting your skin. That makes your skin more sensitive and more vulnerable to ultraviolet (UV) rays, so your skin can burn more easily. To offset this increased sensitivity, apply sunscreen to protect the new layer of skin.

    What causes dark spots on my face?

    Dark spots are usually a manifestation of hyperpigmentation, which can be caused by various factors. The most common cause is exposure to UV rays, which stimulate your skin to produce more melanin, which appears as darker spots. Hormonal changes, inflammation, and age can also cause dark spots, as can some medications and some medical conditions.
