cleansing balm / 100ml


A gentle but thorough cleanser which effectively removes makeup and impurities while nourishing the skin.

For all skin types. Pregnancy-safe.


Modern Botany founder Dr.Simon Jackson says:

“It took me a long time to develop the consistency and the luxuriousness of this balm. I also wanted to add some powerful botanical extracts, so this is the first of our products to contain the root of the marshmallow plant, a fantastic ingredient known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It also has horsetail extract, which naturally exfoliates as it cleans, and it is one of the first products to use our organic foraged seaweed extract, locally sourced in West Cork”
