Tewín’xw Cleansing Clay
TEWÍN’XW (too-ay-nooh) is one of the Squamish words for berry.
This dual-purpose cleansing clay is a fragrant blend of kaolin, Moroccan and French pink clays, powdered rose petals, chamomile, cranberry, and rosehips. As a gentle daily exfoliant, it helps refine and restore skin texture. Left on longer as a mask treatment, the clays work to lift impurities, cleansing deeply to reveal brighter, softer skin.
Ingredients: Kaolin (White Clay)*, Moroccan Clay (Rhassoul)*, French Pink Clay*, Rosa sp. (Rose) Flower Powder*, Chamaemelum nobile (Chamomile) Flower Powder*, Rosa sp (Rosehip) Powder*, Vaccinium macrocarpon (cranberry) Powder*, Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Root Powder
Instructions: Shake a small amount onto the palm of your hand or into a bowl, add enough water to make a paste and gently massage onto face. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Can be left on for 10-15 minutes as a face mask treatment for deeper cleansing.

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.
