CALM cleansing capsules


Our innovative CALM cleansing capsules are packed with potent, plant-based ingredients that work together for a healthy-looking glow. The scientifically developed powder formulation is activated with a few drops of water, transforming into a gentle foaming cleanser to wash away impurities. The result is a glowy complexion and super soft skin.

Why Capsules?

Unique capsules are easy to travel with and single-use portioned to limit product waste, as well as help to ensure the potency of the ingredients. The vegan capsules are made from a tapioca-derived starch, so they simply dissolve in water for zero waste.

    What should I do with the capsule?

    Our pullulan capsules are 100% biodegradable and completely soluble in water. After use, please dispose of the capsule in your compost or drop it on the bottom of your shower (the capsule will dissolve in a day or so!).

    Custom-made specifically for booni doon, our acid-etched glass containers and bamboo lids are made of highly sustainable materials. See below for information on the materials used in our product packaging and how to properly dispose of them. 


    Most large cities accept glass in their curbside recycling programs, but please check with your local recycling center. Unfortunately, due to the costs of transportation, risks of breakage, and low commodity value, some smaller communities may not accept glass in their curbside recycling programs.


    Our bamboo lids are custom-carved for booni doon. By omitting the conventional plastic liner, our bamboo lids have a lower carbon footprint, but 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 the oil does not come into contact with the CALM cleansing capsules.

    For zero waste, we recommend composting your lid. Please note that the bamboo lid may take a few months to some years to biodegrade, since the decomposition rate of bamboo is contingent upon several factors including soil, temperature and atmospheric conditions. To speed up the composting process, please (carefully!) break the bamboo lid into small pieces with a hammer or saw prior to composting.

    Very satisfied with multipurpose calming capsules

    Beyond being travel friendly, the calming capsules are an effective multipurpose cleanser that can also be used as a fortifying facial mask and an exfoliator. I use the capsule once a day and find it soothing to the point where I don’t feel the need to apply a moisturizer after washing my face. Highly recommend.

    Hi Yvette, thank you so much for your kind review! We're so happy you enjoy using our CALM cleansing capsules.

    Ingenious and perfect for travelling

    Love how each capsule is single use making them super easy and light to travel with - when say you're going backpacking or on a short carry-on trip. They have a light natural exfoliant and the lavender not only soothes but gives these lil' cleansing pills a calming scent. And, importantly, they're truly sustainable! Thank you!

    Hi Mercedes, we love hearing how the CALM cleansing capsules are perfect for your travels! Thanks so much for leaving a review!

    Great for men too!

    I've been trying to get more into skincare recently as I find its what helps me keep appearing more youthful as I enter my early 30s to help combat other signs of aging that are not under my control. This product was recommended to be by a friend because of its unique approach to skincare, and I've been a big fan ever since. The product is very light and airy so you know it's going to feel great against your skin and not harsh. Moreover, because you get to reconstitute it you have total control for what you need in that moment, and can play around with various consistencies. The product also has a nice inviting smell while at the same time neutral and not overly perfumed. I also like the company's goal to reduce waste and be fully sustainable as I've become more aware of these things as I get older. Would highly recommend to all skincare types!
