Reveal smooth, glowing skin from the start of your routine and effortlessly dissolve makeup, dirt, and oil with the PEG-free Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm. This balm-to-milky oil harnesses naturally-enzymatic, actively smoothing papaya to satisfy and gently resurface skin, creating the ultimate baby-soft canvas for skincare and makeup. The mix of exfoliating and calming papaya seed oil, papaya enzymes, papaya extract, and antioxidant-packed blueberry, leaves skin clean, bouncy, and glowing.

Inspired by the K-Beauty method of double cleansing, or 1:1 Method, which focuses on massaging the products into the skin for 1 full minute for each cleansing step. This ensures that the multiple layers of skin care, makeup, dirt, and oils are all thoroughly removed. Using the 1:1 Method is the key in achieving hydrated, bouncy, clean skin.

Safe for Sensitive Skin

Papaya Enzymes

Known as papain, this gentle exfoliant helps to dissolve and remove dead skin cells, improving skin tone and texture. It helps to soften and smooth the top layer of the skin while soothing and brightening.

Papaya Extract & Seed Oil

Rich in fatty acids, Oleic and Linoleic Acids, in addition to Vitamins A, C, and E, to help keep skin hydrated.

Blueberry Extract

Rich in antioxidants to help fight free radical damage, calm irritation, and brighten skin.

Camellia Japonica Seed Oil

A lightweight, moisturizing oil that’s rich in Oleic Acid, antioxidants, and rich in Vitamins A, D, and E to help keep skin hydrated without weighing your skin down.

Apricot Kernel Oil

An oil high in fatty acids and Vitamin E that deeply nourishes and soothes the skin.

We choose to formulate with fragrance, when needed, to create a sensorial, enjoyable skincare experience. However, some formulas don’t need added fragrance as they already have naturally fragrant extracts. Naturally fragrant extracts are plant-based extracts that inherently possess a potent, pleasant scent.

The polyethylene in Papaya is a safe, cosmetic-grade polymer in liquid form and is different from the polyethylene that makes up common, everyday household plastics or microbeads.

Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Sorbitan Oleate, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Polyethylene, Aqua/Water/Eau, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Seed Oil, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Papain, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Fragaria Ananassa (Strawberry) Fruit Extract, Alkanna Tinctoria Root Extract, Capsicum Annuum Fruit Extract, Maltodextrin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Levulinic Acid, Pentylene Glycol, Sodium Metabisulfite

Scoop a generous amount. On dry skin, gently massage formula in circular motions for up to 1 minute with dry hands, focusing on areas that have more makeup. Add water to emulsify and continue to massage, and then thoroughly splash with lukewarm water to rinse.

Pro Tip:

Massage the formula onto dry skin with dry hands for up to 30 seconds. Add water to emulsify and massage it again for up to 30 seconds for the most effective makeup removal. To double cleanse, use 1-2 pumps of Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser (sold separately) and gently massage onto skin for up to 1 minute, and rinse thoroughly with water. Follow with your usual skincare routine.

How do the different forms of papaya benefit skin?

The 3 forms of Papaya (Papaya Enzymes, Papaya Seed Oil, Papaya Extract) are all rich in Vitamin A, C, E, and fatty acids, but each form has different concentrations. They all help to smooth, brighten, moisturize, and soothe skin but the oil has higher concentrations of fatty acids while the enzyme actively smooths.

How does the formula effectively remove makeup without PEGs?

PEGs (Polyethylene Glycol) are used as effective ingredients for makeup removal and can cause sensitivity when consistently used, especially for sensitive skin. Since face + eyes are such delicate skin, we chose to formulate without any PEGs. Instead, we used Sorbitan Oleate, a solubilizer extracted from olive, and other oils that work together to effectively remove the makeup.

Since it exfoliates, is it safe for everyday (and 2x a day) use?

Yes, it is safe. The formula has many soothing ingredients, papaya enzymes are a gentle smoothing ingredient, and it is tested to be safe for sensitive skin and eyes. Tests results TBD before launch.

What is the optimal environment for this cleanser?

The formula should be in a dry, cool environment. Always close the cap to keep fresh. Do not keep the formula in the shower as this is a damp, wet environment. Avoid getting water into the jar as this can alter the texture.

Do I use this on dry skin or damp skin? Will it remove makeup the same either way?

Apply to dry skin and massage into the skin to stimulate circulation and to allow the natural oils in the formula to latch on to dirt and grime. If used in the shower, please make sure skin is dry when applying.

Why is there polyethylene in the formula?

The polyethylene in Papaya is a safe, cosmetic-grade polymer in liquid form and is different from the polyethylene that makes up common, everyday household plastics or microbeads.

I love it so far!

It smells amazinggg!! It has no artificial fragrance so its safe for my super sensitive skin. It turns into a cleansing oil when you warm it up in your hands and it still moisturizes even after rinsing it off and doing a double cleanse! Ill be keeping it around!
