Kalkáy Wild Rose Facial Oil
KALKÁY (call-kay) is the Squamish word for wild rose bush.
Made with sustainably-harvested rosehips and organic sweet almond and jojoba oils, this bestselling facial oil absorbs quickly while deeply hydrating the skin. The properties of rose help reduce redness and irritation. This oil feels light on the skin and leaves it super soft and nourished. The scent is incredible!
This product is also available as part of the Self Care Set.
Ingredients: Rosa sp. (rosehip) oil*, Prunus dulcis (sweet almond) Oil*, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) Oil*, Blend of Essential Oils
Instructions: Gently massage one to two pumps of the oil onto clean, dry skin. Can be used in place of or in combination with a moisturizer. Gentle enough for babies’ skin and can be added to a bath for aromatic soothing.
30ml / 1.06oz
What we LOVE about Sḵwálwen Botanicals:
Sḵwálwen (skwall - win) is a luxury Indigenous brand creating botanical skin care products. Honouring traditional Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) plant knowledge, they incorporate sustainably harvested and sourced plants and organic, high quality ingredients. Each product has a Squamish name to honour the place where this plant knowledge comes from.
Creating Sḵwálwen products begins with time spent on the land — forests, estuaries, or subalpine meadows — to harvest plant foods and medicines. Using Squamish cultural teachings, Leigh approaches the natural world gently and respectfully, harvesting with techniques that are ethical and sustainable.
Once the plants are harvested it’s time to process them. This usually includes scraping bark, cleaning, hanging to dry, infusing in oil and more. After processing, it’s time to create! Leigh loves this part — developing each recipe, pairing particular plants based on their healing properties with the highest quality oils, clays and plant butters. (Her five-year-old daughter calls these her “potions”.)
Each batch of Sḵwálwen products is made with care and intention, bringing you luxurious skincare products free from harsh chemicals, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic colors and parabens.
