Why is the LAST Cleansing Gel soap-free?
Each of LAST products is formulated with sensitive skin in mind. We are focused on performance and delivering visible results while simultaneously nourishing, comforting, balancing the skin. For our Cleansing Gel, we wanted it to remove impurities from the skin but without striping the natural oils, essential lipids and proteins from the face, to have balanced pH and never cause any irritation.
Traditional soap, especially when used frequently, is too harsh and drying for delicate complexion. It disturbs skin’s natural pH causing irritation and aggravating pre-existing skin conditions.
Instead of strong alkali solution, soap-free products contain emulsifying ingredients that break up excess dirt and oil, cleansing the skin. They do not rip the skin off its moisture, are very gentle, and do not disturb skin’s acid mantle and microbiome.
Is soap-free also chemical-free?
At LAST – yes, but usually – no. Soap-free products often contain aggressive, synthetic chemicals like DEP, 1,4 Dioxane, Glycols, synthetic colors, synthetic fragrance (including synthetic essential oils), Interts, Solvents (VOCs, surfactants/sulfates), preservatives (formaldehyde, parabens, sodium benzoate).
Possible health effects from these chemicals include skin irritation; dermatitis; hormone disruption; cancer of the nose, throat, blood; menstrual cycle disruption; endocrine disruption; reproductive toxicity; immunotoxicity; neurotoxicity; hyperactivity in children; liver and kidney damage or even low fertility in men.
You definitely want to check what the soap was replaced with before making a purchase.
What saponins do you use in LAST Cleansing Gel?
For our Cleansing Gel, we’ve developed our own composition of natural saponins, all related to forest. It consists of two types of saponins: one extracted from the tea tree and the second one extracted from soapnuts.
Our Tea seed extract is derived from Camellia Sinensis – Pu’er tea, growing in southwestern Yunnan. It is COSMOS, HALAL, VEGAN certified. Saponins are the key active ingredient of the extract. They are 100% natural and organic, function as solubilizers with high foam performance and emulsifying properties. Antifungal and antiseborrhoic, they have a clinically proven strong inhibitory effect on Candida albicans or Aspergillus niger. As a natural deoxidizer, tea saponins can not only eliminate exogenous oxygen free radicals, but also prevent the production of endogenous oxygen free radicals. They also have inhibitory effect on leukotriene D4 – one of the slow reaction substances of allergies, an important regulatory factor in many diseases such as inflammation and asthma, which can increase the permeability of blood vessels and cause the contraction of smooth muscles and bronchi. Our tea seed extract is delicate for skin and give the gentle rinse feeling, leaving the skin refreshed, soft and non-dry.
The second type of saponins comes from Soapnut extract, sourced from the fruits (nuts) of Sapindus Trifoliatus, also known as Arishta or Phenila in Sanskrit – a deciduous tree growing in southern India. The pericarp is a rich source of saponins which function as a mild cleanser, surfactant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent. They were used for washing for thousands of years by natives in Asia. Soapnut extract is gentle even for sensitive skin. Dermal toxicity studies on the saponin fraction indicated it doesn’t cause any dermal irritation, sensitization, phototoxicity or photosensitization effects.
There is no other soap-alternative substance added in the formulation.
What is the pH of LAST Cleansing Gel?
The natural pH of healthy skin is between 4 and 5.9 and it functions as a hostile environment for bacteria, for example acne bacteria. Using products with unbalanced pH – usually rising above 7 pH – damages the protective layer on the skin called the acid mantle. A damaged acid mantle is one of the causes of premature aging, it makes the skin prone to inflammation following in eczema flare-ups, contact dermatitis and increased acne breakouts.
While most soap-based cleansers have a pH between 9 and 1, our LAST Cleansing Gel has approx. 5 pH. Balanced pH helps to restore skin’s protective barrier. And when additionally enriched in postbiotic concentrate, it preserves the equilibrium of microbiota, improves the integrity of skin barrier by boosting the production of constituents of cohesion and of protein and lipid structures, as well as accelerates the rate of epidermal renewal.
Why do you use rosemary hydrosol instead of water?
In order to deliver the skin as many benefits as possible, we always use hydrosols instead of water. In the Cleansing Gel, we used Rosemary Leaf Water – a hydrosol extracted through the steam distillation of rosemary leaves cultivated in France. It is rich in multiple therapeutic properties, mostly purifying, detoxifying, regulating and stimulating. It is 100% pure, certified, organic and free from preservatives. It is distilled in France, with the Ecocert certificate.
Used and valued since ancient Egyptian times, rosemary belongs to the Labiatae family, which contains several genera—such as Salvia, Lavandula, and Thymus—that are commonly used in cosmetics, due to their high prevalence of antioxidant molecules. The fathers of ancient medicine—namely, Hippocrates, Avicenna, and Galen—used ointments of rosemary flowers and leaves macerated in olive oil to treat joint pain and as a vulnerary to heal wounds (1). In the form of hydrosol, Rosemary Leaf Water has minor antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anti fungal properties. It is ideal for combination, dull skin.
Why do you use so many active ingredients in a cleansing product that doesn’t stay on the skin for a long time?
Most people think it doesn’t matter what you wash your skin with, as it doesn’t stay on the skin for a long time. For us – a shorter contact with skin is a bigger challenge! We have less time to actively influence the skin, fill it with nutrients. And each of our LAST skincare products is here to make a difference.
With the Cleansing Gel, apart from the cleansing function, our goal was to deliver the benefits of a hydrating, healing cream. We wanted your skin to feel comforted and moisturised after washing, without the instant need to reach for a cream. This is why we filled the formula with soothing boswellic acids, moisturising bioferment from acerola, panthenol, forest’s powerful balm copaiba, a drop of argan oil and more active ingredients to radically change and improve your experience with cleansing the skin.
At what age can I start using LAST Cleansing Gel?
As soon as you start consciously choosing your skincare. There is no age limit, all the ingredients are safe no mater the age.
What is the expiry date?
The expiry date is 18 months from the production. You can check the expiry date on the bottom of your bottle.
How often can I use it?
Twice a day? More often if you like it? The formula won’t dehydrate your skin nor destroy your protective skin barrier.
I have sensitive skin, will the Cleansing Gel be gentle enough?
As with all LAST products, Cleansing Gel is performance-driven but made safe at the same time. Apart from the 100% natural saponins, we filled the formula with multiple calming, soothing ingredients like panthenol, pentylene glycol, boswellia serrata resin extract, argan oil or vitamin E to take care of your sensitive skin.

These cosmetics are the best thing that happened to me recently. At my prime time, when I am finally myself – a mature woman sure that she is attractive – above all – to herself! A woman I dreamed to become when I was still a young girl. The serum, its smell, consistency and what it does to the skin is amazing: color, hydration and even tension, everything changes in favor. What I like the most is that it’s just one cosmetic that I use for the whole face and neck. I never believed in a large number of different cosmetics. And the amazing toner and facial cleansing gel all together make my skin natural and healthy. I don’t need makeup, I don’t need to beautify myself!MAŁGORZATA SZUMOWSKA
I’ve shied away from skincare products for the majority of my life, because the idea of putting chemically loaded products on my skin, promising fairytale results doesn’t inspire me. What truly inspires me though, are the products and the ethos of LAST Skincare. Here is a company which not only celebrates our unique and beautiful selves, but also offers gentle products brimming with the most powerful natural ingredients. I’ve not used anything else on my face for over a year now because my skin thanks me every morning with a glow I’ve found from no other product.RAEA ELENI
I must say the serum already became my favourite beauty routine. It makes taking care of my face so easy, with just one product my skin looks radiant, firmer and super hydrated (and considering how dehydrated it tends to get I feel I’v found a real gem). I love the transparency and honesty brand shows regarding the effect but I feel Skin Repair Serum offers even more than promised.MARZENA JARCZAK, 37
I love the way my skin looks and feels now, it’s much smoother, toned. My pigmentation spots are almost invisible, I see less wrinkles, the skin looks so fresh, calm and relaxed. I love the effect but also the whole application process – it smells so empowering, sometimes I just cannot wait till the evening to put it on my face again. My friends notice I look better, I get many compliments, it all feels really good.JESSICA, 37
After two bottles, I can say I am already addicted to the serum. I love everything about this product, the way it smells, the colour, the delicate golden glow it leaves on my skin. The effects are astonishing, the skin became soft, smooth, plump, I look and feel healthy! I cannot imagine going back to the regular creams ever again. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this product!JULIE
LAST skin care products are truly amazing! Serum and Toner are my favourites. Beside the smell that I loooove, it really gives my skin glow and hydration. I use that serum at night, and it’s so rich that I don’t need anything more!BREE NAUMOWICZ
I get so many compliments on my skin and having run out for only two weeks, I really notice my skin not being as illuminated and bouncy. It’s really a beautiful, beautiful product!BRENDA
As a beauty editor, I have tried many skincare products that, far from improving my skin, made it worse. I have always looked for that special product, that melts into my skin and I can almost see how it works little by little. That its smell turns the routine of taking care of yourself into an ultra sensory act that goes beyond mitigating wrinkles. And today I can say that Last Skincare Skin Repair Serum has achieved it. Incredible texture, light but nourishing, a spectacular smell and an effect on the skin is… Wow! C-O-N-G-R-A-T-U-L-A-T-I-O-N-SCLARA BUEDO
I have normal skin and I love this, so luxurious and moisturizing. My face feels so soft in the morning when I use this at night. This serum is not greasy and does not clog my pores. Wish it was cheaper but I have repurchased and will continue to repurchase nonetheless.ANONYMOUS
I have very sensitive, prone to allergies skin, so unless my work forces me to, I don’t like to change or test new products. The serum was recommended to me by a make-up artist Iza Kućmierowska whose skin looks great and actually looks much “younger”. It was love at first sight! Starting from the original scent that is very plant and fresh, to the feeling of really deep hydration. The rich texture is absorbed very quickly and gives the skin an amazing glow with which I wake up in the morning and often I don’t need to apply a day cream. I have only been using this serum for a year as a bedtime treatment and it adapts to my needs regardless of the season. A huge plus for a plant-based alternative to retinol. A definite must have for people who don’t like using a lot of products, this one bottle has it all.MADDIE KULICKA
Best skincare product ever. Nothing else has ever made my face look so good. I have dull, thin, acne prone skin with post pregnancy melasma in under eye areas – this product literally diminished all discolouration by 70-80% and gave my skin that healthy glow. For the very first time in my life I can go out with absolutely no foundation or bb cream on my face.VERONICA
I’m so happy to discover this product, thanks to my friend Tomek. First the smell of frankincense, neroli, moss and wood – very refreshing and calming, the texture – very delicate and light that makes your skin glowing through the day. Well done Last ❤️❤️IRINA MARIE, LE NUMERO
After few weeks with LAST serum I must say it brings a lovely results for my skin! I love the smell, consistence and the fact I can really see the results after application. LAST is definately one of this brands that will make you feel special- beautiful design bottle, great and natural ingredients and really seeable results!IZA KUĆMIEROWSKA
I fell in love with the unique LAST serum from the first moment. A wonderful, incense fragrance that affects the senses won my heart. It’s poetry. It’s a luxury. It is a total, natural change in the approach to care. My skin is firm, has a beautiful warm shade and glow. I feel beautiful! LOVEDORA KUĆ
LAST is very different to everything that I used before. It’s the scent, the color, the texture of it. When I apply it the skin reacts immediately. After a few moments you can feel softness under your fingers. I’m a face model and its very important for me, not to overwhelm my skin with too many products.Mark, 44
LAST, for me, is a philosophy of women supporting women with purifying the skin and the soul. As long as I use them, products provide me relief for the skin and help to reduce inflammation and stressors by soothing the mind. My everyday skincare routine with the LAST skin repair serum is my favourite part of the day as it calms me down and balances my mindset. Feeling moisturising and nourishing my skin with LAST products gives me energy as well as positive wellbeing.
I recommend it to all types of skin and gender who want to bring out their natural beauty without any effort.
