FAQ LEROSETT® Organic Acne Products

What is the LEROSETT® Organic Acne Method?

How the LEROSETT® Organic Acne Method Works: 

LEROSETT® Organic Acne Kits are centered around our 100% Organic Spot Treatment, Clay Mask, and Botanical Acne Cleanser. Within the four main acne kits, you can choose the moisturizer, healing Serum, or ClearPoint® Acne Supplements.

LEROSETT® products are a healthy and natural way to get clear skin and are customizable to every person’s specific needs and skin condition. 

LEROSETT® is the only plant-based antioxidant-rich acne brand. LEROSETT® Acne products are oil-free and contain over 60% organic healing aloe, which helps to heal the skin through active botanicals.

in 35 years, LEROSETT® has never used Benzoyl peroxide, which recent research has shown can produce benzene, a cancer-causing agent, when exposed to warm temperatures like those in delivery trucks during summer. Another common risk with acne brands is over-exfoliating and stripping them of their natural oils. This can cause breakouts and overproduction of oil on the skin. Over-exfoliating can also irritate the skin because it removes the top layer of the skin before it has a chance to heal.

Getting clear skin and staying clear should be approached in different ways. The side effects of using the same high-strength acne system to get clear and also long-term to stay clear can cause thinning skin, hyperpigmentation, and premature aging.   

Use LEROSETT® Clay Mask daily to get clear and 2-3 times weekly to stay clear. It absorbs impurities that cause pimples and mildly exfoliates.

How often should I use LEROSETT® products?

Consistency is key. When you begin using LEROSETT® products for pimples, oily skin, acne, or blemishes, use as instructed two times daily, usually once in the morning and once in the evening. Skipping days or changing your routine can lengthen your clearing time.  

LEROSETT® Spot Treatment and Clearing Mask  “LEROSETT® Clay.” 

Facial Mask Method: Apply LEROSETT® Clay in a very light, almost translucent layer.  Gently rub the clay into the skin, allow the mask to dry, and work for 10-15 minutes, then remove with lukewarm water.  Repeat as needed.  Use more often to get clear and less frequently to stay clear. Many LEROSETT® users with oily skin will sleep with a thin mask on overnight and apply it thinly on the problem area. Patch test on a small area overnight first, confirming your skin is not too sensitive for overnight masking. 
Spot Treatment: Do not rub the clay in for spot treatment.  Apply over a pimple; a bit thick is OK, about 20 minutes to dry.  To stop a pimple from forming, spot treat as soon as you notice or feel a pimple coming on.  For spot treating, apply several times per day or overnight. Overnight spot treating can be very useful.

For the best results, we recommend using one of our acne kits or product duos. For example, our LEROSETT® Acne Kit includes the Botanical Acne Cleanser, 100% Organic Clay Treatment, and the “Moisture Matte” Moisturizer. This complete skincare routine can help to clear skin faster and target a broader range of issues.

What is a Spot Treatment?

Unlike a full facial mask, spot treatments can be applied thicker and left on for extended periods, even overnight. Spot treatments are directly on the pimple and can be done as often as needed. This can also be done before a pimple is formed, so if you feel one starts to swell, put some clay on it ASAP!

Spot treating a popped pimple. If you have a pimple ready for extraction, wait until the main drainage is over (maybe 30 min). Use a cotton ball to absorb the drainage, then spot the extraction point for 30 minutes, a few times a day, and spot treatment overnight. This can absorb remaining liquids and infection and help close the opening, which prevents a scab and thereby minimizes scarring. LEROSETT® (Clay) Spot Treatment and Clearing Mask can be used as a drying paste.

Spot treatments with alcohol, zinc oxide, and other ingredients are not the safest for spot-treating pimples. LEROSETT® Clay is the strongest absorbing clay available and can safely remove a pimple overnight.

How often should you moisturize?

Daily! This is an essential process for keeping your skin hydrated, especially during dry winter months. Both the LEROSETT® Botanical Acne Cleanser and LEROSETT® Spot Treatment and Clearing Mask can be drying as well, so please moisturize after each mask or cleanse. We recommend our aloe-based LEROSETT® Moisture Matte Clear Skin Moisturizer or LEROSETT® Healing Serum are oil-free, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and can hydrate your skin effectively, minimizing the redness and swelling from pimples, etc. while adding the nutrients that help the natural healing process. *For the best hydration, the LEROSETT® Moisture Matte Clear Skin Moisturizer is more effective. This can be used in conjunction with the Healing Serum, however, for optimal effect.

Will my acne get worse before it gets better, what is purging?

In some cases of deep acne, as oil and impurities are drawn out of the skin, there can appear to be more pimples. As clogs are being pulled out, some can get stuck and back up a pimple. Purging is getting rid of all the clogs quickly so you can achieve clear skin. LEROSETT® acne products DO NOT cause acne. For those with deep pimples, these impurities must be removed for your skin to become clear. Stay consistent and don’t give up; your clear point may take time. If you choose not to remove these impurities, you may lose any chance of clearing your skin healthily. Those who have used dozens of products and nothing has worked are likely because purging never took place. Those with very problematic skin and many pimples have a lot of impurities deep in the surface. It is unfortunate for many, but purging is what must occur to achieve clear skin finally. An effective way to minimize purging time and severity during the initial clearing phase is to take ClearPoint® supplements. Since ClearPoint® is extremely useful in cutting oil production, there can be less oil in your skin to purge.

After I reach my clear point, can I stop using LEROSETT® products?

No. Acne is caused by dead skin cells that clog follicles, and your skin will always shed dead skin cells. LEROSETT® removes dead skin cells and prevents oil build-up without causing skin damage or drug resistance, and, your skin is also healthier.

While Rx drugs, antibiotics, etc., can help, acne is classified as a skin disease and has no known cure, only treatments; it’s the same with most diseases; there is no cure, only treatments. However, most teenagers experience occasional breakouts called problem skin, which are not necessarily signs of acne, a chronic skin disease. Not all teenagers have a skin disease, just active hormones that like to cause trouble in their lives.

LEROSETT® clears skin and removes pimples. To prevent pimples from returning, use the LEROSETT® Clay Mask 2-3 times a week, wash daily with the acne cleanser, and moisturize with the Healing Serum or Moisture Matte™.

Use LEROSETT® Clay has a spot treatment on any new pimples. Avoid bar soap, to harsh,  and use LEROSETT® Botanical Acne Cleanser.

If you have very oily skin or don’t want to spend time on a mask, ClearPoint® acne supplement can prevent pimples from returning by addressing oily skin, cystic acne, and low maintenance.

Contact us for any questions or concerns. With LEROSETT®, the longer you use it, the healthier, clearer, and more beautiful your skin can become!

Is LEROSETT safe to use when pregnant or nursing?

LEROSETT® is a proprietary heat-treated, all-natural, micronized clay consisting of two ingredients: clay and distilled water. LEROSETT® is safe to use even when pregnant and on all skin types. LEROSETT® contains no parabens, sulfates, dyes, oils, or detergents and has no added chemicals.

LEROSETT® Spot Treatment and Clearing Mask has been trusted by millions of acne sufferers and dermatologists for 30+ years. No pregnancy-related reactions have been reported. Avoid oil-based products during pregnancy, as they can cause pimples. LEROSETT® acne products are oil-free and use organic aloe instead.

Can cold or hot temperatures damage LEROSETT® products?

Our new packaging, LEROSETT® Spot Treatment, and Clearing Mask should not be as sensitive to temperature as it previously was with the original metal packaging.

If frozen, the ingredients can separate; however, the product can still be applied with vigorous shaking. With the initial application, you may notice particles of clay that will melt with the heat of your skin. The clay will then perform as expected.

If you’re sure the clay was frozen, you can place the tube in hot water, up to 140 degrees, for 5 minutes, then shake vigorously, and the clay should recombine.


Can LEROSETT® be used with other products? What about a sunscreen or moisturizer?

If you’re using only the LEROSETT® Spot Treatment and Clearing Mask, you can use other acne products. However, if you’re not also using the LEROSETT® Moisture Matte Clear Skin Moisturizer or the Clear Skin Face Wash, you may not get the best results. Other acne products may not be aloe-based and may not have the healing ability of LEROSETT® products. If you’re using the entire LEROSETT® Acne System, you should avoid using other acne products.


Never wash your face with bar soap before applying the clay mask. Bar soap is alkaline and can dry out your skin. Instead, use an oil-free aloe-based liquid cleanser like LEROSETT® Clear Skin Face Wash or our LEROSETT® Acne Cleanser. If you don’t have a good cleanser, it’s better to skip washing your face before a clay mask than to use bar soap.


Remember to use a moisturizer after applying LEROSETT®, and using sunscreen is always recommended as well. Use a minimum of SPF 30 and apply the sunscreen after applying Gunilla of Sweden® products. Before applying sunscreen, use an oil-free botanically-based moisturizer like LEROSETT® Moisture Matte Clear Skin Moisturizer, Healing Serum, or one of our Gunilla™ Moisturizers. These moisturizers can penetrate deep into your skin, infusing all the enzymes, vitamins, and antioxidants your skin needs to look its best. Then, you can cover the nutrient layer with sunscreen.


If you have a problem with skin or pimples, avoid using products that contain oil. Many oils are highly comedogenic and can clog your pores and make your skin worse. Some of the most comedogenic oils are coconut oil, olive oil, grape seed oil, and wheat germ oil.


Finally, it’s worth noting that Gunilla of Sweden® products don’t contain sunscreen ingredients. We prioritize high organic content and, therefore, don’t include sunscreen in our products.

What do I do if LEROSETT® is not working?

First, you must understand that acne, like Eczema, Psoriasis, and Rosacea, is a chronic and incurable skin disease. LEROSETT® is a treatment that helps to remove pimples or the side effects of acne, but you must remain in treatment to stay clear. If LEROSETT® products are not as useful as desired, adding the ClearPoint® supplement is often all it takes. Many people must treat acne externally and internally before it clears and stays that way.

Certain prescription medications can make clearing acne challenging, but it is not impossible. In such cases, we suggest using LEROSETT® products consistently since alternative treatments may worsen the situation by introducing more complex drugs with potential side effects. Some chemical-based acne products can cause your skin to undergo a withdrawal period when you stop using them. Your skin can get used to the antibacterial effect of such products, and it might take a few weeks of detoxing before your skin returns to its normal state.

1. Confirmation: Confirm that you have pimples related to clogged pores or follicles and not Rosacea, sun rash, a staph infection of the follicle, other rashes, or similar skin disorder.

2. Acne drugs: If you just stopped using antibacterial acne drugs, benzyl peroxide, and other harsh drugs, your skin may go through an accelerated bacterial phase. Your skin can get worse for a short period. Since you’re no longer using antibacterial drugs, your skin may need time to regulate itself. LEROSETT® can still draw out oil, impurities, etc., but may not be as effective during the initial weaning period.

3. Purging phase: In cases of deep cystic acne, oil, and clogs that lie under the skin and in the follicle can be drawn out with first use, causing what may appear to be more problems. LEROSETT® does NOT cause pimples. These impurities must be removed from under the skin and within the follicle for your skin to clear. Stay consistent, and don’t give up; your clear point is closer than you may think. If you do give up, you may lose any chance of clearing your skin healthily.

4. New pimples: If you only spot-treat individual pimples and new pimples keep popping up in other places (on your forehead, t-zone, cheeks, etc.), it means you’re not preventing the growth of new pimples by using LEROSETT® as a mask. LEROSETT® prevents skin problems by removing follicular seed clogs and minimizing oil production through mineral adsorption. A follicular clog seed can take up to 3-5 weeks to manifest itself as a pimple. You can prevent seeding by applying a thin layer of LEROSETT® as a mask 1-3 times daily (depending on skin sensitivity.) During these three weeks, the pimples you usually would have had in 3 to 5 weeks should not appear or only be a fraction of what it was. Unfortunately, seeding or clogging can quickly occur if you skip daily or bi-daily full mask applications.

Final note: Fighting acne, especially painful long-term acne, is a fight! You must work at it every day, and most importantly, you must be consistent and not give up. LEROSETT® will help remove more pore clogs than your body can create, but it must be used daily until you clear. There is no cure for acne, only long-term treatment. If you are having difficulty, please contact one of our skincare professionals by email, chat, or call 866-551-5505.

Is LEROSETT® safe to use for pimples on dry and sensitive skin?

LEROSETT® is a natural clay that is safe for all skin types and all ages and is clinically proven to clear skin. In a third-party double-blind clinical trial, all participants achieved clear skin in 6 weeks using only LEROSETT® clay masks.

For dry or sensitive skin, use a moisturizer that is aloe-based and does not contain oils, alcohol, or drying elements. Apply LEROSETT® only to the pimple itself. Use LEROSETT®’s aloe-based moisturizers. They have high aloe content and are safe for sensitive skin.

Is there an expiration date for LEROSETT®?

Not for the LEROSETT® (Clay) Spot Treatment and Clearing Mask. It can stay in an unopened tube for years. Once opened, LEROSETT® can last for years as long as the cap is put back on after use. The LEROSETT® clay will eventually dry into a harmless powder. However, the other LEROSETT® items use hydroponically grown nutrient-rich aloe as the first ingredient. The moisturizer, clear skin face wash, acne face wash, toner, pore minimizer, and healing serum should be kept from heat and sunlight. Since these products are based on organic plant matter, they should be used within 6-10 months after opening and kept out of extreme temperatures. However, the Cleansers, Moisturizers, and Serums should last several years before opening.


The LEROSETT® Botanical Acne Cleanser has an expiration date. However, office staff uses expired acne cleansers since they are free. Some have open bottles that are fine with 3-4 years after the expiration date. The expiration date is a legal OTC date; it doesn’t relate to the exact expiration date you would find with a gallon of milk.

When we discount soon-to-expire acne cleansers, we advise you to stock up. We will replace any cleaners that go bad at any time.

Can I buy each of the items in the LEROSETT® Systems individually?

Yes. LEROSETT® products are most effective when used as a system. However, not everyone uses each item at the same rate. You may run out of the LEROSETT® Acne Cleanser before you run out of Clay. Therefore, you can order each item individually. You can also use each item separately. Many users are fine with only the LEROSETT® Spot Treatment and Clearing Mask and the Matte Moisturizer. Adding the Acne Cleanser or ClearPoint® supplements is for acne that you want to clear fast or severe cystic acne.

Can Gunilla of Sweden® products clear my dark spots?

Gunilla of Sweden® products may clear up dark spots and help fade discoloration on all skin types. The key to drug and bleach-free safe lightening of dark spots, also known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, is to exfoliate away the skin’s dead top cellular layers. The GUNILLA® Glycolic Night Cream and the 10% Glycolic Acid Serum are our strongest exfoliators.

LEROSETT® Acne Cleanser (medicated), and the LEROSETT® Spot Treatment and Clearing Mask are all products that can effectively exfoliate, allowing for new cell growth. The GUNILLA® Glycolic Night Cream is a good start; try to catch the dark spots as early as possible.


Acid peeling & removing dark spots:

The 10% Glycolic Acid Serum will remove dark spots if applied directly to the spot twice a day. The serum will effectively burn the top color layer off, leaving light scabbing for a few days. This light scabbing can heal in days with the LEROSETT® Healing Serum or GUNILLA® Hyaluronic Acid Serum. If done carefully and correctly, dark spots can be removed one at a time within a week.

Ask a physician before performing home dark spot removal peels*
