One of Mokosh' best-selling products, this is a three-in-one that you will not want to live without once you see what a difference it can make to your skin! Mokosh believe its success is because it is made using 100% botanicals - without the detergents, preservatives and other synthetic ingredients of typical cleansers that can interfere with your skin’s barrier function and microbiome. It works as a daily cleanser, exfoliator and mask, keeping the skin fresh and free of superficial debris. It is enriched with aloe vera, pomegranate and meadowsweet, which contain α- and β- hydroxy acids known to promote healthy cell turnover and boost collagen. It is rich in anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatories, vitamins and minerals, building resilience in the skin. The practise of performing daily gentle exfoliation keeps the skin clarified and free of excess oil, dirt and cellular debris. It also enhances the skin’s ability to absorb our nutrient-rich moisturisers, reducing the ageing effects of free radicals and promoting healthy, radiant skin.

Mokosh have packaged this refill pack in a cardboard box and compostable cellophane bag, so it is now zero waste – simply tip the powder into your empty jar and it is done!
To cleanse and exfoliate, take 1 teaspoon of powder and add sufficient water to make a smooth paste. Gently massage the face using small circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Rinse thoroughly and follow with Pure Hydrosol Toner and a Mokosh moisturiser of your choice. For use as a mask, prepare as above and leave for 15-20 minutes. Follow with Pure Hydrosol Toner and a Mokosh moisturiser of choice. Some people prefer to use this product in the shower for ease of rinsing. Do not allow water to enter the jar or product will spoil. For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes.
Mokosh was founded in 2006 by Dr Marion O’Leary, a former veterinarian, pathologist and medical scientist. ‘A series of events led me to look at the ingredients used in skin care products. The more I researched, the more concerned I became about the long-term health effects of exposure to widely used ingredients. In particular, some of the common preservatives, which are added to virtually all products, may be absorbed into the body with potentially harmful effects. Other synthetic ingredients like emulsifiers are routinely added to moisturisers - these are detergent-like molecules that can interfere with the skin’s barrier function, and most are derived from environmentally-damaging palm oil. I decided there had to be a better way, and that it was time to reinvent the way we use skin care.’
A few years later she started working with Jayne Bland who introduced her to the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda, which inspired and influenced how they formulated Mokosh products.
Mokosh products have been formulated using the latest scientific research to select botanical ingredients rich in nutrients known to support skin health, combined with knowledge from the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda. The products are designed to work in tandem with the body’s healing and regenerative systems. Users find that their skin responds with enhanced resilience, vibrance and health, revealing its own unique natural beauty.
In today’s fast-changing, consumer-based world, it has never been more important to be conscious of the humanitarian and environmental impact of what we consume. At Mokosh, they embrace the following:
FAIR TRADE INGREDIENTS
They use fair trade shea butter, cacao butter, coconut oil and coconut flour in their products. Buying fair trade means producers receive a higher price, ensure better working conditions, fair pay for women and children, and a higher chance of access to education.
Mokosh donate regularly to social and environmental causes. Over the years they have supported The Orangutan Project, Amnesty International, The Red Cross and The Thin Green Line Foundation. Currently they are supporting One Girl, whose mission is to educate girls in Africa.
PALM OIL FREE
No palm oil or palm oil derivatives have ever been used in Mokosh products. Mokosh is accredited Palm Oil Free with Palm Oil Investigations and certified palm oil free with Orangutan Alliance.
None of their products and none of their ingredients are tested on animals. Mokosh has cruelty free accreditation with Choose Cruelty Free.
Their products are packaged in recyclable glass and paper.
