Award winning product for: Best Cleanser 2020!

Why should I use Recovery Cleanser?

An oil-based cleanser as a first step of our facial routine, dissolves all dirt particles (makeup, sweat, sun creams etc). In addition, Recovery Cleanser is composed by many nutritious oils such as Moringa, Calendula and Bamboo oil that will leave your skin feeling velvety soft and prepared to receive the rest of your treatment.

If you do the double cleansing, we recommend using as a first phase our luxurious cleansing balm to milk recovery cleanser  (Oily Phase) and then Purify Cleanser (aqueous phase).

What effects will I notice?

In the short term, you will notice how the skin feels deeply cleansed, hydrated, juicy and with the appearance of pores minimized.

In the long term, our luxurious cleansing balm to milk recovery cleanser helps rejuvenate the skin and fight against free radicals and the effects of skin oxidation.

What is like to use it? (feeling, texture, aroma)?

Creamy balm that emulsifies completely when massaging with water. It will give you a feeling of relaxation thanks to the essential oils of lavender, orange and rosemary, an aroma that envelops you and makes you disconnect for a few seconds. Recovery cleanser is your SPA treatment at home, you will feel how it nourishes and cares for your skin deeply, while cleaning and hydrating it. We also recommend using luxurious cleansing balm to milk recovery cleanser as a mask and letting your skin absorb and soften your skin even more.

Moringa oil (Soul Ingredient)

Coming from the Himalayas. A plant that has all the adverse environmental conditions not to grow, and yet with its oxidation powers, it survives any type of climate. It is a plant that at the oxidation level is extreme, having more than 69 different antioxidants. Due to its anti-inflammatory and cleansing power, Moringa oil is a great ally to fight against all skin imperfections, such as acne or blackheads. Because of its anti-oxidant properties, it is also ideal for preventing wrinkles and supporting radiant skin.

Olive oil

Has excellent regenerative properties and is effective in regulating hydration and restructuring the skin. The high oleic acid content provides resistance to oxidation and is an excellent moisturizer.

Sage Extract

Contains high levels of antioxidants to fight skin oxidation caused by extrinsic factors (sun exposure and pollution).

Bamboo Extract

Bamboo has great qualities for skin care: purifying, anti-inflammatory and restorative. Bamboo helps to synthesize collagen (helping delay cell aging), softens the skin, moisturizes it and improves its elasticity,

Calendula Extract

Provides anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial benefits. Calms skin irritations. Ideal after sun exposure.


Locks in essential moisture without providing a feel of oiliness to the cleanser.

Sweet Orange & Rosemary essential oils

Help calm the spirit to reduce intrinsic stress (second most influential aging factor).

Lavander essential oil (Soul Ingredients)

Its relaxing effect and rich aroma help you find a break after a long day at work. In addition to insomnia, it is highly effective in reducing states of anxiety and nervousness, it lowers blood pressure. Known as blue gold, originating from the fields of Provence in France. In the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun, vessels filled with an ointment that smelled of lavender were found even after 3000 years. The ancient Egyptians may have used lavender when embalming their mummies.

Leaves my skin fresh, I love it so much.


I've tried many other organic cleansers and Recovery from Dafna is my very favorite. The skin feels silky smooth as it leaves a tiny layer on my skin (I use almost cold water to rinse it off). I use it after I clean my face from make up and before applying the mist and Unify serum and Moisture/Nutrition cream. It is mportant part of my ritual and it will remain as I plan to buy this product again.


Works well as the first cleanser in double cleanse and removes makeup thoroughly. This has the strongest scent out of Dafna's products I've tried, but I enjoy it. Doesn't rinse off clean but leaves a moisturizing layer behind.

This is by far the best nightly cleanser I've encountered. It smells nice and feels good in skin. Love to message it in and sit for 3 minutes. It really cleans deep and leaves my skin glowy.

Ana Eizaguirre

What an amazing cleanser! Leaves skin feeling gorgeous and soft. Combined with Detoxify my skin was glowing. Plus you get 5 samples which is awesome. I totally love this brand. Will be ordering the Purifying Cleanser, Serum and Nutrition next.
