Nothing! booni doon is our founder’s nickname for her sister. It doesn't mean anything. 😊
We do not include preservatives or ingredients known or suspected to be harmful in our formulations! This includes abiding by the high safety standards of the European Union’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety and never using any of their 1,300 banned and/or restricted ingredients, including parabens, harmful sulfates, phthalates, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, mineral oil, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, talc, triclosan and triclocarban.
Our promise to use only ‘clean ingredients’ means we always try to source natural or naturally-derived ingredients, ideally organically and ethically grown. This allows us to provide you with skincare products that are safe for your skin and the environment without compromising on efficacy.
100%. booni doon has been certified by PETA and we are a member of their Beauty Without Bunnies program. We conduct rigorous clinical testing, but never on animals. Our products also do not include any animal by-products.
All of our skincare products are made in the U.S.A. and are hand-crafted in small batches.
Our CALM cleansing capsules have a unique capsule delivery system that is simple to use!
Using only dry hands, pick capsule from glass container. Tap capsule to settle cleansing powder in bottom portion of capsule. Then gently squeeze and pull apart vertically to remove top portion of capsule. Pour cleansing powder into palm. Wet opposite palm and rub hands together to create a light, gentle foam. Add a few drops of water, if desired. Massage onto face in circular motions. Rinse, pat dry and follow with your favorite toner, moisturizer or serum.
After use, be sure to drop your empty capsule in your sink or at the bottom of your shower. The tapioca starch capsules will completely dissolve in water!
Our unique capsule delivery method ensures the potency of our cleansing powder formulation. In addition, it limits product waste, as each capsule has exactly the right amount of cleansing powder for one wash!
Our consumer testing demonstrated that CALM cleansing capsules were effective in removing make-up, dirt and oil from the skin.
For heavy make-up, we recommend using a 'double cleanse' method, which uses an oil (coconut, almond or olive oils work well!) or balm as the first cleansing step. The emulsification of the oil or balm loosens make-up from the skin. Following up with a CALM cleansing capsule will ensure complete removal of make-up from the skin.
Our cleansing capsules have been clinically and dermatologist tested to be non-irritating.
Common dermal allergic reactions to skincare products are usually caused by sensitivity to fragrance/parfum, preservatives, colors/dyes, propolis/beeswax and essential oils. We thoughtfully formulated our products so that they also don’t contain any of these substances!
That being said, everyone is different. Please double check our ingredient list(s) to ensure you are not allergic to any of our natural ingredients and if you experience any sensitivity, please discontinue use immediately.
Our cleansing products are completely vegan, including the capsule, which is made of a tapioca starch.
By only using clean, natural ingredients, our products are safe to use during pregnancy, but we always recommend checking with your physician first.
We are proud to have formulated our products to contain 100% natural and naturally derived ingredients, including:
Sodium cocoyl isethionate: is a gentle surfactant derived from coconut oil. As a surfactant, it creates a wet feeling, it solubilizes oils and reduces surface tension, and can aid in foaming as well. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review Panel has found sodium cocoyl isethionate to be non-toxic, non-irritating in dermal applications. Additional information on the ingredient can be found on EWG’s website.
Rhamnolipids: are a class of glycolipid produced by bacterial organisms, frequently cited as the best characterized of the bacterial surfactants. The rhamnolipids used in our formulations are from the fermentation of vegetable oil. They are a gentle, effective surfactant and most notably are 100% biodegradable and have unique environmentally friendly properties.
Our bamboo lids are custom-made for booni doon. By omitting the conventional plastic liner, our bamboo lids may expand and contract due to the ambient temperature and humidity. We recommend storing your CALM jar in a dry, cool place. If that is not possible, rub a tiny amount of olive oil on the grooves of the lid to help with any wood contraction. Please ensure any oil does not come into contact with the CALM cleansing capsules.
We accept all major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.
