Calendula & Cucumber is our gentlest cleanser for sensitive, rosacea-prone, oily and combination skin!
Do a double cleanse in just one round! That’s right; there’s no need to cleanse twice with this gem as it provides both a super gentle cream and oil cleanse for your skin. Even though this cleanser does so much work, it’s our gentlest face wash ever. Your skin will feel clean but never dry or stripped.
Not only is the formula super gentle on inflamed and irritated skin, but we’ve also added turmeric to take it one step further. This spice is known for its anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce redness for those suffering from rosacea, breakouts, or sensitive skin.
Have skin that’s sensitive and oily? We’ve also added oat powder (not just for its calming effects) because it helps to absorb oils and keep you looking mattified too. As a bonus, jojoba oil has been injected into this formula to help balance oil production.
The plant-based oils in this cleanser also make it an excellent option for a makeup remover. The avocado and argan oils break down makeup for easy cleansing without irritation.

How to Use: Wet your face with water. Avoid hot water, as this will dry out your skin. Opt for lukewarm water instead. Massage the cleanser around your face in circular motions. The optimal time to cleanse your face is roughly 1 minute. Rise off with water and pat dry with a clean facial towel.
Calendula Extract: This plant extract is derived from the marigold family and is known in skincare for its ability to be a strong anti-inflammatory thanks to the rich flavonoids this plant is packed with. The combination of oils and acids in this extract is also famous for being fantastic antibacterial support for the skin, keeping acne-causing bacteria and others at bay.
Cucumber Extract: This extract is known for its ability to help reduce the appearance of age spots and restore a natural glow. Full of antioxidants, it protects against further free radical damage, which is a major player in the aging of our skin. Cucumber extract is also a natural antiseptic and is known for soothing inflammation below the skin’s surface.
Oat flour (gluten-free): Oat flour is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties to soothe itchy and inflamed skin. The beta-glucan found in oats helps create a protective moisture barrier for the skin and delivers deep penetrating moisture to dry and depleted skin. It’s also believed to improve the tone and texture of your skin, leaving it feeling velvety soft.
Sunflower Oil: Not only is this oil fantastic for cooking with, but it also has heaps of benefits for skin too! Because it contains a tonne of Vitamin E, Vitamin A, and other antioxidants. It helps to neutralize free radicals and is lightweight and easily absorbed by the skin to restore moisture. The fatty acids are great for helping improve skin tone and texture as well.
- Turmeric: Most think of this spice as adding flavour to our favourite dishes, but turmeric has been used for centuries in beauty because of its benefits for the skin. When used topically, it has shown major gains in improving inflammation, especially for those who suffer from rosacea. On top of that, turmeric contains curcumin which provides antioxidant properties that can help with hyperpigmentation.
