TEWÍN’XW Cleansing Clay by Sḵwálwen Botanicals
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, lavender, calendula 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." - SB
Sḵwálwen Botanicals is an Indigenous Owned and Operated Company founded by ethnobotanist Styawat (Leigh Joseph). Sḵwálwen (skwall-a-win) translates to “heart” or “essence of being” in the Squamish language. This name was chosen to represent the inspiration behind the business: building connections to the land through working with plants in a way that feeds one’s heart and spirit. Their Indigenous skincare line incorporates respectfully harvested botanicals, organic oils, nourishing plant-derived butters and steam distilled essential oils. Their products are handmade in small batches on the Unceded Ancestral and Traditional Territories of the Skwxẃu7mesh (Squamish) First Nation.
