The ingredients that make a difference


A potent combination of Frankincense - high in soothing Boswellic Acid - and Copaiba with skin calming β-Caryophyllene. These two actives are particularly effective at calming overactive skin when used daily as a mask for 15 minutes.


Effectively draws out impurities while hydrating and rebalancing the skin, and will not clog pores the way coconut oil can.


Subtly fragrant ceremonial desert herbs, packed with antioxidants, help reduce irritation and reveal fresher, calmer, healthier-looking skin.

How to use it

Morning & Night

Massage balm over entire face morning and night. Ensure skin and fingertips are dry on application, avoid eye area if sensitive. Rinse well with warm water or remove with a damp washcloth. For a boost of hydration, let balm sit as a mask for 5 minutes after application before rinsing. Directly after cleansing use Rock Rose Face Serum to prep and tone your skin for your daily routine.

Founder Shani + Porter's Tip

Cleanses thoroughly and rinses clean, with no residue, while preserving skin flora for a healthy microbiome. Clinically formulated with clean, potent desert botanicals, and won't clog pores like coconut oil-based balms. May also be used as an anti-irritation mask, gua sha slip or aftershave treatment.

Jazmin's Tip

"This is ABSOLUTELY hands down the most incredible cleanser I have EVER used. It's unlike anything else I've ever experienced and my skin feels like its singing afterwards. Definitely a holy grail status item."
