If you have oily skin, a cleanser can make or break your skincare routine. Hence every person with oily skin in India is always on the hunt for the best cleanser in the market.
Waterbased face washes are always a good choice. But sometimes you may not find the right one for you. Or you may simply prefer not using one.
Thankfully, we have several unconventional cleanser options turning up in India within the clean beauty segment. I personally have found powder cleansers to work really well on my oily and acne-prone skin.
7 Best New-Age Cleanser Options For Oily Skin in India
1. Juicy Chemistry Organic Makeup Remover
This cleanser works just like micellar water. Made with saponified oils diluted in hydrosols, it helps remove all makeup and dirt without drying out your skin.
I have even used it as a morning cleanser when I need just some gentle cleansing action. It is hydrating and removes excess sebum well.

2. Earth Rhythm Matcha Green Tea Cleansing Balm
I used this one at my cousin’s place once to remove makeup and it was so good. This is an emulsifying cleansing balm so it turns milky and easily comes off when you splash some water on your face.
It melts even matte, smudge-proof liquid lipsticks well. And after rinsing it off, the skin does not feel greasy at all.
So definitely check this one out if you love double-cleansing. (They have different variants so pick one that suits your needs.)
Shop this on Amazon
3. Skincare Villa Green Tea Mint Cleanser
This is a nice creamy powder cleanser from Skincare Villa that doubles up at a face mask. It has green tea and mint as key ingredients which are quite bengecial for treating acne-prone skin.
Apply this on your face every day as a mask for 5-10 minutes and then massage it to cleanse your skin as well.

4. Fiducia Botanicals Brightening Exfoliator
If you are too lazy to exfoliate your skin regularly, pick this daily cleanser cum exfoliator from Fiducia Botanicals. It has goatmilk powder(natural source of AHAs) and oats which help cleanse and exfoliate your skin. While turmeric and calendula help brighten skin and reduce pigmentation too.
5. Raw Beauty Neemoi Face Wash Powder
Another wonderful powder cleanser that works well as a cleanser as well as a quick face mask. Made with ingredients like oats, neem, moringa, tulsi and white turmeric, this cleanser is a great buy for anyone with acne-prone skin.

6. Greenie Mill Hemp And Tamanu Gel To Milk Cleanser
If you like double cleansing but don’t want to deal with cleansing oils or balms, this is the one for you. It’s an affordable oily-gel cleanser that turns milky when you add water to it.
If you have oily or acne-prone skin, this can be an ideal first-cleanse for your evening skincare routine or even a stand-alone cleanser on other days.
Available on their website
7. Juicy Chemistry Cucumber, Matcha & Spearmint Organic Cold Pressed Soap
Using a bar of soap is a good way to cut down plastic waste from your routine. Plus, you can double this up as body soap too.
I am recommending this particular variant from Juicy Chemistry since it has soothing ingredients and is made using the traditional cold-processed soapmaking process.
