Aveda Botanical Kinetics Purifying Gel Cleanser Ingredients

Pure-fumeTM Aroma

Consists of certified organic geranium, grapefruit, mandarin and other pure plant and floral essences.


This ingredient is commonly used as an anti-inflammatory in skincare treatments. Specifically, caffeine is meant to improve circulation and diminish the appearance of under eye puffiness and dark under eye circles. Unfortunately, any results you’ll see from such an ingredient are temporary. There is no proof that caffeine can reverse the appearance of such issues around the eyes.

Sunflower Seed Oil

Rich in Vitamin E, it is considered as one of the best natural oils for skin care. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that moisturizes dry or sunburned skin, helps reduce inflammation, and helps slow down the signs of skin aging.


It is used as a lubricant and humectant to moisturize skin. It attracts water to the skin’s surface, making skin soft and smooth.

Recommending To Purchase?

This purifying gel cleanser is a good product in the sense that it uses certified organic ingredients and plant extracts, and it is dermatologist-tested. However, some of its ingredients are not exactly “pure.” Some of them are comedogenic and/or categorized as a skin irritant. Some ingredients may even have harmful effects on health when used repeatedly. While there are many customers raving about his gel cleanser, some customers had bad experiences as well. So, we recommend checking other gel cleansers with pure and gentle ingredients, backed by a clinical test or a ton of good reviews.
