Modern Botany

Cleansing Balm


Cleansing Balm, 100ml. Designed for all skin types. 

From Modern Botany, a pure, deep-cleansing balm to effectively remove all make up and impurities while nourishing, softening and restoring the skin. 

This is a luxurious, heaven-scented balm with all-natural plant-extracts and actives, beautifully presented in full recyclable, sustainably sourced packaging. 

With a blend of nourishing plant oils such as Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Sweet Almond Oil it helps to deeply cleanse the skin, without the need for harsh scrubbing or ingredients. It is designed to be suitable during pregnancy, and for sensitised or immune-compromised skin. 

We love it as an everyday balm cleanser for leaving skin feeling soft, clean and nourished after use, or as a twice weekly mask treatment. Use it to create a natural, grounding skincare ritual for yourself and follow with a few drops of Modern Botany's Multi-Tasking Oil or Recovery Cream.

A tip from Dr. Simon Jackson:

“I’m very proud of this formula and its innovative ingredients. I use it to cleanse my face every day – and once a week, usually during a long Sunday morning bath, I’ll apply it as a mask, let it melt in and then remove it with a hot damp cloth.”

Key ingredients


Our organic seaweed extract comes from serrated wrack, or fucus serratus, which is foraged locally on the Wild Atlantic Way. It contains a high level of vitamins and amino acids, which are known to improve skin elasticity and reduce inflammation.

Marshmallow Root

The root of the marshmallow plant contains mucilage, an anti-inflammatory which soothes and softens even the most dry and damaged skin.

Horsetail Extract

With its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, horsetail extract helps skin to heal while tightening pores and soothing irritation.


A historic Irish plant rich in oleic and linoleic acid, which are essential for healthy skin and hair. Flaxseed oil is excellent for treating blemished and scarred skin. Calendula The petals of the calendula plant have been used for centuries for their anti-inflammatory and skin-healing properties. A natural antioxidant, it soothes and heals irritated skin.


A traditional medicinal plant, chamomile has long been used to aid sleep and ease anxiety. A powerful antioxidant, we use it to help regenerate the skin.
