Kalkáy Wild Rose Toner
KALKÁY (call-kay) is the Squamish word for wild rose bush.
Formulated to refresh and nourish the skin, this facial toner is a blend of rose and chamomile and witch hazel hydrosols. The alcohol-free formula is gentle and soothing for all skin types, and the rose component aids in reducing redness. No tightness or drying effect here ~ just perfectly clean, soft skin that’s prepped for moisturizing.
Ingredients: Rosa damascene (Rose) Flower Distillate, Chamaemelum nobile (Chamomile) Flower Distillate, Hamamelis virginiana (Witch Hazel) non-alcohol containing Distillate, Leucidal (Radish Root Ferment)
Instructions: Spritz onto cotton pad and use after cleansing to remove any residual makeup or build up before moisturizing.
60 ml / 2.12oz
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.
