Gently cleanse and polish without destroying your skin's natural oil balance. This microbiome friendly powder cleanser is multitasking and customizable, making it great for all skin types! Rinse it off right away if you're in a rush or let it dry for a quick-yet-effective mask.  

White rice flour, tapioca starch, kaolin clay, essential oils of neroli, lavender, ylang ylang

White rice flour: gently buffs away dead skin cells while brightening your complexion. 

Tapioca starch: soothes and softens skin. 

Kaolin clay: gently cleanses pores without stripping skin of its natural, moisturizing oils. 

Neroli, lavender, and ylang-ylang essential oils regenerate and repair the signs of aging, balance oil production, and soothe troubled skin, while adding a light, fresh floral scent!

1. Sprinkle: Pour approximately 1-2 teaspoons of powder into the palm of your hand, or into a bowl.

2. Mix: Mix with a small amount of liquid until a paste is formed. Use water from the tap, or, get fancy with toning mist, hydrosol, coconut milk, or a cooled herbal tea!

3. Massage: Gently massage onto your face using small circular motions. 

4. Rinse: Rinse off with warm water right away, or, let it dry before rinsing off for a quick brightening mask. 

5. Customize: Exfoliating Facial Cleanser can also be combined with our Calming Cleansing Grains or any of our facemasks, for a custom mask to meet your skin's needs. You can also add in other things, like facial oils, aloe vera, yogurt, fruit... this is a perfect base for a DIY mask! 

6. Make it a routine: For best results, always follow with toning mist or a hydrosol, and a moisturizer!   

Can I use this daily?

Technically, yes. Rice flour provides a gentle polish that's safe to use every day. However, keep in mind that over-exfoliating is damaging to the skin barrier and can lead to overly sensitive, reactive skin. For a non-exfoliating cleanser option, try the calming cleansing grains, or our makeup remover + cleansing oil. 

Can I keep this in the shower?

No, keep your bottle dry! Apply your cleanser just before getting in, and rinse it off in the shower.

How do I do this without making a mess?

You don't! Powder cleansers can be tricky at first, and it may take a few tries to get the consistency to your liking, but soon it will become second nature. 

Although it's a little bit more work, your skin will be so much happier without the irritating preservatives and foaming ingredients found in traditional liquid face washes, which strip the protective oil and good bacteria from your skin. Stick with it and you'll soon find that your balanced, clear complexion is worth a little bit of powder in your sink! 

How long should I leave it on when using it as a mask? 

A few minutes is plenty. The kaolin clay pulls impurities out of your pores as it dries, so once it's dry, its work is done and you can rise it off. Leaving it on for too long can be drying. If you'd like to leave it on your skin longer, keep it moist by misting with toning mist or hydrosol every few minutes.

Amazing

I usually avoid exfoliating masks/cleansers because they are too rough on my skin, but this mask is perfect. It’s super gentle but still exfoliates and leaves my skin feeling incredibly calm and clear. My face is never red after using, but free of dead skin/oil build up. I love following it up with facial oil. And it smells DELIGHTFUL.

The best exfoliator!

I use this product twice a week and my pores are so grateful! The grain size is not too harsh but gives you a good scrub. Exfoliating is necessary to remove all the bad dead skin cells and rejuvenate the skin. It also helps to prevent blackheads that can come from oily skin. Handy tip - I bought a maple syrup dispenser to dispense this product and it works great!

Love my Crystal body butter.

My daughter bought me a jar of the Crystal body butter as a gift and I am so thankful. I am 75 years old and I have the feet of a 40 year old because of this product. I put it on my feet every day before I walk my 4-5 miles and I have no callouses or rough heels. I have used petroleum jelly for years but will NEVER go back. I still had rough feet with that - it just prevented blisters. The Crystal body butter feels so much better and does a much better job. It also goes a long way. I received my first jar in January and I still have a bit left but ordered another jar to take on vacation. I also bought a jar for my daughter in law.
