About this brand

Indie Lee is a clean, non-toxic skincare company dedicated to skincare without sacrifice — all of the products are grounded through nature and supported by science.

Indie Lee is named after its founder who in 2008 was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. The diagnosis came as a complete shock, who had been living a very healthy lifestyle, eating organic and even growing her own produce. But then her doctor asked her a critical question: “What have you been putting on your skin?” This question changed everything, and Lee knew that if she survived surgery, her legacy would be to create change and empower others to live their healthiest lives.

Against odds, Lee was completely cured, and from that point forward has continued to fulfill her promise. Indie Lee offers luxe, effective skincare free of ingredients with the potential to harm us or the environment. Achieve truly healthy, radiant skin with Indie Lee’s amazing array of products, and never sacrifice health for performance.

From Indie Lee:

“We believe in ingredients that come from nature, from our fields, mountains, and oceans. We believe in using science to amplify their benefits, without harming animals in the process. We believe it’s time to embrace conscious consumerism by offering safer, cleaner, and more ethical choices. We believe in farmers, scientists, and a community committed to the same clean skincare standards.”

Love it!

This is a great and gentle cleanser. Has helped with my break outs and leaves my skin feeling clean and not tight or dry.

Best face wash ever!

My face was a complete mess before this. I have a lot of hormonal acne, textured skin and truly my face was dry dull and oily in places. I was using skin rx cleansing bar for my acne and don't get me wrong it works really well but it left me extremely dry so an Ulta employee suggested I wash my face with this face wash mostly and use the cleansing bar every 2 days. My skin has completely changed. It is now balanced No longer dry and it doesn't break me out or strip my face. Leaves it very smooth and it looks dewy and clean. I would recommend it. Also it has very clean ingredients and I love that!

A Lovely Face Wash!

This is a really nice face wash! I am prone to breakouts, oily skin, and hormonal acne - it's a fine balance between removing product and free radicals from the day (and night!) without drying out my skin and causing an overproduction of oil. So far, so great with Indie Lee! It has a really gentle, fine foam that isn't overpowering but still feels effective. My skin feels clean but not too tight after use (twice daily; morning and night). The scent is very light and doesn't linger too long past use, which I appreciate. Glad to have a product that helps me stay committed to washing my face consistently! ;)And bonus - it comes in a sturdy glass bottle! It was important for me to seek out products that work for me AND use more sustainable packaging. Win win!
