help to gently peel dead skin cells, improving skin tone and appearance.
uneven skin tone, oily, combination and acne-prone skin.
A gentle powder-to-foamy cleanser with natural enzymes from pineapple and Aussie native wild child Pepperberry is a skin friendly pH balanced cleanser to help improve skin tone and remove dead skin cells, all while magically balancing, brightening, and moisturising skin. Just add water!
The Cleanse Dust vegan enzyme powder face cleanser is the MVP of your daily skincare routine. A waterless formula packed with nutrients from shiitake mushroom, Aussie grown Banana, and Pepperberry leaves skin balanced and brighter every day. Its powder form allows you to control the exact type of lather you’d like by adjusting the amount of water added.
So those natural enzymes? We thought you’d ask… Pineapple’s active ingredient, bromelain, is an enzyme wizard, helping to reignite cellular turnover and even out your skin tone. Mix in banana, rich in potassium and zinc, to make one helluva fruit salad and keep your complexion healthy AF, all while cleansing, hydrating, purifying and restoring balance.
Why’s it so special?
A waterless formula means all its active ingredients remain potent and undiluted. Pepperberry has a long history of medicinal use in Aboriginal culture because of its ridiculously high amounts of antioxidants, vitamins E & A, and rutin; all mega-forces that stimulate collagen production and help soothe, brighten and preserve skin. Cleanse Dust gets a little help from kaolin to detoxify, while banana hydrates, so your skin isn't stripped of its much needed natural moisture.
For the perfect lather, adjust the amount of Cleanse Dust and water while rubbing your hands together. If you are sensitive to pineapple this product may not be suitable for you.
Paraben, silicone SLS and palm oil-free.

Why a powdered cleanser?
So many reasons! You can take them on a plane.
Convenience aside, traditional cream, gel and foam cleansers all contain water as their main ingredient.
Powder cleansers are a waterless formula meaning all its active ingredients remain potent and undiluted. The dry form also lasts longer, and trust us, it'll stick around longer than the gum stuck under your shoe.
But the best thing about our powder cleanser is that it is customisable for every use. For example, the amount of water you add determines the exfoliation intensity. So if your skin is feeling dry, congested or a little sensitive, you decide which kind of cleanser you make to take care of it.
Is Cleanse Dust Powdered Cleanser pH balanced?
When in a powder form Cleanse Dust doesn’t have a pH, but when mixed with water, the product has a skin friendly pH 6-7.
What product can I use after a cleanser?
After cleansing use a toner and follow up with serums, eye cream then a moisturise or oils.
Vegan + cruelty-free?
We love our furry friends, so we only test on human butts. You will find nothing derived from animals or by-products of animals (eg beeswax, lanolin, milk) Not only that, we donate 5% of profits to Melbourne no-kill animal shelter Save a Dog Scheme as if that's not a reason to get butt naked!
Shelf life + storage
Cleanse dust is preservative-free so we recommend using it within 12 months of opening. We manufacture all products in small batches to ensure freshness. To help keep your powdered cleanser fresh please refrain from water content inside the bottle. And don't forget to keep them stored in a cool dry place and away from direct sunlight.

Wonderful face cleanser
I have been using this cleanser for a while now and I am so surprised how gentle it is to my skin yet it cleanses my skin perfectly. I am 55 now and used to have very oily skin but for years it's now more on the dry side, that's why I found most cleansers and scrubs were quite to harsh on my skin and drying it out even more. The cleanse dust enzyme face cleanser is so lovely and easy to use, it has a very light scrubbing feel to it which I like, and after washing it all off I then leave my skin slightly damp so that the prickly pear face oil can properly sink in. Done. Love it❤
I can definitely recommend it. I have very sensitive skin, but the powdered cleanser is really gentle. It leaves my skin very fresh without drying it.
I have been longing for a cleanser for a while - and this was all my dreams come true! It smells heavenly! And it's really light on the skin, you don't need a lot to make a difference. I have pretty sensitive skin, so before this I wasn't using a cleanser at all, they were all way too harsh. This does have a slight abrasive/exfoliant feel to it, so less it more, but even my super sensitive skin it's super subtle - my skin just keeps looking fresher! It's also staying way more hydrated since using this cleanser! I love it!!! Definitely give it a try!
