Melting Waterless Cleansing Balm

(Formula #100-155D)

Melting Waterless Cleansing Balm

Why we love it:

This solid balm melts onto skin as you rub it in and, upon rinsing, forms a milky layer. The orange wax provides extra emollience while also imparting a refreshing natural orange aroma. The result: skin feels conditioned and clean, yet non-greasy.

Trends it supports:

Formulation highlights:

This novel formula provides more substantive skin feel than a liquid oil cleanser. Leaves skin feeling moisturized, not dry, after cleansing.

 A delightful cleanser that fits the waterless trend beautifully, melts easily on skin and then forms a milky layer upon rinsing. Daikon Seed Extract provides smooth, silky feel with Meadowfoam Seed Oil adding a substantive texture and skin feel as well as oxidative stability. Upcycled Orange Wax adds emollience and a light citrus fragrance. SonneNatural® Select Meadowfoam Seed Oil Enhanced provides a natural alternative to petrolatum.
