Kalima Cleansing Powder
MEET KALIMA ❤︎
Your cleansing ritual will never be the same. Silken coconut milk, soothing oatmeal, vitamin and antioxidant rich tropical fruits, softening clays and organic vanilla beans come together to create the most exotic and opulent cleansing powder you have ever experienced.
Once you activate her with water, she will metamorphose in your palm, effervescing into a pink potion emanating soft vanilla and citrus note that will gently exfoliate and thoroughly cleanse your skin, leaving your complexion soft and silken. Each step of cleansing with Kalima is a ritual of beauty, which begins the second you pour its soft powder into your palm.
Organic hibiscus flower, wildcrafted camu camu fruit and water activated vitamin C are a powerhouse trio working harmoniously together to boost collagen production and even out the complexion. When used as a cleansing mask, Kalima is especially magical at helping to fade post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.

Start by pouring 1/4 to 1/2 a teaspoon of Kalima powder into the palm of your hand. Slowly add water, drop by drop, until your reach an ideal consistency. For a more exfoliating cleanse, add less water. For a more gentle cleanse, add a few more drops.
Blend the powder in your palm until it starts to froth and activate- ensuring that the ingredients are fully integrated. Gently massage into moist skin in circular motions. Rinse well with warm water.
For use as a deep-cleansing mask, allow Kalima to dry before rinsing and gently pat your skin dry with a cotton towel.
Avoid getting water in the jar to preserve freshness and extend the shelf life.
ORGANIC COCONUT MILK softens and moisturizes the skin and contains skin loving vitamin A and C, calcium, iron and natural proteins. Coconut milk helps to soothe irritated skin and the natural fatty acids help to clarify and tone.
WILDCRAFTED BANANA fruit is rich in potassium and vitamin A. Banana is great for dry skin, providing adequate moisture and hydration.
ORGANIC OATMEAL has a soothing effect on the skin. Oatmeal contains water binding polysaccharides and hydrocolloids that hold moisture against the skin acting as an emollient, helping to soften and heal the skin. Oatmeal has also been known to alleviate atopic dermatitus and contact dermatitus.
We make a signature in house blend of genuine Hawaiian alaea sea salt and organic vanilla beans- ground into a fine and silken powder. Alaea salt gets its pink color from the particles of volcanic red clay. Alaea clay is composed of over 80 separate minerals and is rich in iron oxide. Combining this with vanilla brings a serene balance of purification while introducing an abundance of minerals to the skin.
ORGANIC HIBISCUS FLOWER We use the red ‘roselle’ hibiscus flower. This particular flower has been dubbed the “Botox plant” because of its firming and lifting abilities on the skin. Hibiscus contains natural AHA which can help speed cellular renewal, mildly exfoliate the skin and control acne breakouts. Hibiscus helps to strengthen elasticity and moisturize the skin, and the presence of anthocyanocides help to make the pores appear smaller due to its astringent properties.
ORGANIC BROWN RICE POWDER is a gentle, yet effective exfoliant that helps to cleanse daily pollutants and slough off dead skin cells.
GUAVA AND CAMU CAMU fruits are full of skin loving vitamin C and antioxidants. The natural acids in these super-fruits help to even skin tone and mildly exfoliate. Camu Camu fruit is a superfood, and is one of the greatest sources of vitamin C which helps to lighten and even out the skin tone.
BENTONITE CLAY Derived from volcanic ash, this clay can produce a sort of electric charge when activated with water, which makes it effective at absorbing and removing toxins and impurities in the skin.
ROSE CLAY is full of iron oxides, which give it that beautiful rosey color. Rose clay provides mild exfoliation and enhances circulation, regnerates collagen and elastin and helps promote new cell growth. Rose clay also helps reduce inflammation, tighten pores and helps to fade hyperpigmentation.
KAOLIN CLAY Also known as white clay or china clay. Kaolin is very gentle and helps to mildly exfoliate the skin and stimulates circulation, leaving you with a soft complexion and a healthy glow.
ROSEHIP FRUIT contains vitamin C as well as 32 other vitamins and minerals. Rosehip is high in antioxidants and helps improve elasticity, it also has anti-inflammatory and astringent properties.
ASCORBIC ACID We use a GMO free and non irradiated source of ascorbic acid, making it a very pure source. Ascorbic acid is truly vitamin C royalty for the skin. Once activated with water, ascorbic acid comes to life. Skin benefits include
- A more even skin tone and reduction in brown spots
- a boost in collagen production
- helps to fade post breakout red markings (post inflammatory hyper pigmentation) by increasing the skins healing response
HONEYSUCKLE WHOLE FLOWER POWDER has been used for years in Chinese medicine. It is antiviral and antibacterial and can help assist in clearing acne and other skin eruptions. We use the whole flower, this is not an extract or liquid preservative.
