Yet, the most boring step is often the most important one. 

Without proper cleansing: 

  • your subsequent efforts and investment in expensive essences or serums, would yield weaker results. 
  • applying essences/ serums/ cream on skin that hasn’t been properly cleansed, will often result in acne. 
  • It might also result in the weakening of your natural skin barrier. 


  • A Effective but gentle cleanser 
    • One that doesn’t strip your skin and leave it squeaky clean. Squeaky clean is not a good place for your skin. Ultra dry and tight skin means excessive sebum production later on, and this causes acne and/or early signs of wrinkles. 

  • A cleanser free from harmful, toxic or low-grade chemicals. Some chemicals might give you fast results, but are often the very ingredient that causes skin problems and imbalances. 

  • Slow down, be gentle and mindful in your technique.
    • Avoid tugging down on your skin. 
    • Use small circular and upward motion when washing your face
    • Dab dry and not rub it dry

  • Temperature of the water
    • Hot water isn’t good for skin. It is ultra-drying. 
    • Cool water is often the better choice. 


  • Cleanses dirt, bacteria and oil effectively
  • Is also incredibly gentle on your skin
  • It does not strip away your skin’s natural oil
  • Contains Natural Strawberry extract, which is rich in Vitamin C.
    • Strawberry contains salicylic acid that cleanses your pores, reduces hyperpigmentation and dark spots
    • Its anti-inflammatory properties soothes and calms your skin, making it suitable for even sensitive skin
    • Antioxidant-rich strawberry aids in reversing the damage caused by UV rays and slows down premature signs of aging. 
    • Brightens the skin and reduces dullness. 

  • Contains Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
    • Normalizes your pore lining and plays a key role in keeping sebum from building up and clogging your pores.
    • Reduces rough and bumpy skin in the long-term
    • Strength your skin’s natural ability to defend against moisture loss. 

  • Uses Natural Oils as its base
    • We use multiple natural oil to build this cleanser (Olive and coconut oil)
    • It cleans while soothing any redness of inflammation at the same time
    • Making it suitable even for dry and sensitive skin 


  • No Banned Substances
  • No harmful chemicals or toxins
  • No unnecessary fillers
  • No SLS
  • No harmful paraben
  • Fragrance Free
  • Registered with the Ministry of Health. 

Our ingredient list is simple and clean:

Aqua, Cocos nucifera (Coconut Oil), Olea Europaea (Olive Oil), Ricinus communis (Castor Oil), Strawberry Extract, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Vegetable Glycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Citric acid, Germall plus (Paraben Free Preservative)



Less foam, less dehydration  

Cleanse effectively without leaving it squeaky-tight. 


Given the gentle and toxin free formula, this cleanser is made with all skin types in mind. 

However, as with all products, no matter how good it is being touted, please do a patch test on yourself, to rule out any incompatibility. 

*Patch test - use the product on a small area of your skin - usually behind your ears, just under your jaws. 



  • Extra cleansing is sometimes necessary if your skin is producing more sebum than usual:
    • For ladies, it could happen a few days in a month, due to hormonal changes
    • Could happen due to changes in our routine, specific activities or diet. 


Gel texture tends to produce much less foam. In addition, our products are free from SLS (the foam producing chemicals), and hence, some of us might find it awkward to wash our face without bubbles and foams.  

Hence, our recommendation is approximately 4-5 squirts into your palms. (Be more generous if need be):

  • Spread it all across your face
  • Massage in small circular motion, covering all areas - about 15 secs
  • Wet your fingers with water and massage 1 more round. Continue to wet with water along the way 
  • Then, rinse off with water. 
  • Pat dry


  • Fresh
  • Soft
  • Not tight

What is PAUSE?

Is our range of clean skincare products. 

In our pursuit for beauty, we often get distracted by all the new super ingredients, benefits, social media-driven beauty standards etc. 

While all that can be interesting, real beauty comes with acceptance. To make the decision that we are worthy of our own care first, and then, through rituals like skincare, tell ourselves that story every single day. 

Touching our skin as we pamper it with serum. 

Washing it gently. 

Being conscious about what kind of product we want to feed our skin 

When we invest that kind of gentle and mindful care into our skin, body, mind and soul…

We will bloom. 

And that to us, is aging gracefully. 

We approach our products with the same philosophy. 

Clean, non toxic products

Simple and straightforward with a sense of ease

Good quality ingredients

No unnecessary fillers 

What is PAUSE's definition of "Clean Beauty"?

No Banned Substances

No harmful chemicals or toxins

No unnecessary fillers


No harmful paraben

Fragrance Free

Registered with the Ministry of Health (Malaysia). 

Why are there chemical sounding names in your ingredient list?

Because all natural foods have chemical names. It is the system for naming and labeling substances.  

All plants and fruits have chemical sounding components within it.

For Instance, the fruit - Banana contains: 

Isoamyl acetate (C7H1402) - responsible for the banana flavor and smell

Pectin (C6H10O7) - when banana ripens, the pectin levels increase, which is why they soften over time and change color

All natural.

Hence in our definition, you will not see us saying we are “chemical-free”. Because that isn’t possible, when even fruits have chemical-sounding names. 

What is clean, is the removal of:

Ingredients that have toxic effects

Low grade quality ingredients that creates more skin issues in the long run

Unnecessary fillers, that doesn’t really benefit the skin 

Harsh substitutes for better margins.

Our ingredients list is kept short and simple. 

We also have an ingredient glossary that you can check out here, where information about the ingredients we used are stated.

This is the first time I am using your product, how do I start?

Always start with a patch test. That would be a good way to test if the product is suitable for your skin. You can do so by applying a small amount behind your ears, or the inside of your elbow for at least 24 hours, for any skin reactions

Is your product suitable for men as well?

Absolutely. There isn’t really a men’s product VS women’s product to start with. A good skin care product is good, and has no gender bias. 

Our products are made with skin in mind - be it men or women. 

All can benefit from non-toxic and good quality ingredients. 

Where is your product made in?

We sourced for ingredients globally. 

Products are made in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
