Calming Cleansing Grains 🤗

$ 4.00

Gently cleanse and soothe sensitive skin with this microbiome friendly powdered cleanser that's gentle enough to use morning and night!

oat flour, aloe vera powder, and kaolin clay

  • Oats: whole grain oat flour, finely ground. Oats are hypoallergenic, soothing, and anti-inflammatory. They contain chemical compounds called saponins, which act as natural cleansers to remove dirt and oil buildup from pores. Oats also contain amino acids, which can repair and heal damaged skin. They also act as a humectant, which helps your skin retain moisture. 
  • Aloe: Aloe vera powder is produced from drying the healing gel found inside the aloe vera leaf. It is hydrating, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and soothes troubled skin. It also has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties, which helps heal and control breakouts and damaged skin. Aloe protects skin from free-radical damage, and also has humectant properties to help skin retain moisture. 
  • Kaolin clay: gently draws out impurities from pores without stripping skin of its naturally moisturizing oils 

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 the grains dry before rinsing off for a quick healing mask. 

5. Customize: Calming cleansing grains can also be combined with our exfoliating facial cleanser, or any of our facemasks, for a custom mask to meet your skin's needs. 

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

Is this exfoliating? 

Only very mildly so. The texture is very soft, and more thick than our exfoliating facial cleanser. 

I have acne prone skin. Should I choose this or the exfoliating facial cleanser? 

The calming cleansing grains are a better choice for skin with active breakouts, as they effectively cleanse without scrubbing open broken skin. 

Can I keep this in the shower? 

No. Keep your bottle away from water. Apply your cleanser just before getting in, and rinse it off in the shower! 

Can I use this in the morning and at night? 

Yes! It's gentle enough to use twice a day.

Gentle for my skin

The calming Cleansing Grains is what I use every morning and night in my skincare routine. I love how gentle, but deep cleaning it is on my skin. All natural is the way to go!

Amazing for my skin

The first time I used it I was unsure at first. This was my first powdered cleanser. But I use it everyday and I love it! My skin loves it!

Kate Kettner
My favorite everyday cleanser

I use this almost everyday, it’s a really lovely and great cleanser for sensitive skin that still does an amazing job cleaning your face. Been using this twice a day with oil for the past couple of weeks, and my skin has never looked better!

Hannah Dixon
Amazing Every-Day Cleanser!

This is my new go-to for my daily facial routine! It has a comforting smell and gently exfoliates your skin without over-stripping. It's great for both morning and evening use. I would definitely recommend for someone looking for an every-day cleanser!

Grace Patton
My go to nightly cleanser

This cleanser has such a lovely texture. The oatmeal thickens and makes it luscious and creamy. My skin feels very clean and soft after using.
