“The melt packs a punch and dissolves away all my makeup whilst managing to be gentle, silky smooth and nourishing.

Welcome to the future of plastic free skincare. The Cleansing & Hydrating Melt for Balanced Skin by Happi Body Co is the UK’s first natural facial cleanser presented in a biodegradable container. The cleanser is a powerhouse of 14 plant oils, butters and natural active ingredients. Skin is gently yet deeply cleansed. Sweet orange and crisp lavender uplift the senses.
The waterless cleanser gently melts on contact with the skin. It rinses off to a milk on contact with water, effectively removing all make-up and traces of the day. Skin feels beautifully soft and nourished. Can be used with just water or a face cloth soaked in warm water to remove all traces of the cleanser.
Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Bisabolol – A constituent of chamomile essential oil. It helps to soothe and calm skin. Safflower Oil – Natural source of vitamin E and linoleic acid, necessary for maintaining healthy skin barrier function. Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil – A powerhouse of vitamins, minerals and nutrients help keep the skin protected and nourished. Cupuacu Butter – This creamy plant butter moisturises and softens skin. Mango Butter – Melts into the skin quickly and doesn’t leave an oily residue. Known to reduce the appearance of fine lines on mature skin. Sweet Orange Essential Oil – In feng shui philosophy, the scent of oranges brings happy and life affirming energy. In the world of aromatherapy, it encourages feelings of joy. Lavender Essential Oil – Used for its uplifting aroma, it also has antiseptic and anti inflammatory properties. Cacao Seed Butter – Softens skin and is readily absorbed.
Product Feel: The soft waterless balm melts into the skin and rinses off to a milk on contact with water leaving a very light veil of moisture on the skin.
Plastic-Free Packaging: The 100% biodegradable container is made from wood sourced only from sustainable Nordic forests. Sourced from Sulapac, eco award winning packaging specialists.
Not Vegan: This product is not vegan as it contains (ethically sourced) beeswax.
I have been pleasantly surprised by this sumptuous cleansing melt as I would usually steer clear of a product I perceived to be too rich for my skin type. My skin feels thoroughly clean, nurtured and balanced and not a sign of any breakouts that I may have expected from a product like this.
The melt packs a punch and dissolves away all my makeup – including stubborn waterproof eyeliner and mascara – whilst managing to be gentle, silky smooth and nourishing. The scent is perfect for an evening cleansing routine as the sweet orange blossom and lavender offer a touch of relaxation too. Only a small amount it needed so I can see this lasting a fair amount of time.
The sustainability side of this product has totally blown my mind. Not only does the melt have a dual purpose – cleanser and moisturiser – as it leaves a very light oil-like residue that can soak into your skin over night, but the packaging is completely compostable (or reuseable if you are a container hoarder like me!) I’m left wondering why all packaging hasn’t moved to be 100% biodegradable!
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a gorgeous non-foaming cleansing that is tough enough to remove makeup but tender enough to nurture.

Polyglyceryl–4oleate – One of the three naturally derived emulsifiers in the cleansing melt. It helps to remove the melt from skin without leaving a heavy residue behind. It is made from sunflower oil and is both skin friendly and PEG free.
Polyglyceryl-4 Laurate – 100% RSPO certified segregated sustainable palm kernel oil. Another emulsifier to help the cleansing melt leave a silky soft feel on the skin.
Cetearyl alcohol – A naturally derived emulsifier which is a flaky white, waxy, solid material. It is oil soluble, but it is not water-soluble. A mixture of fatty alcohols, it enables the natural plant oils to break down easily when applied to the skin, allowing the active ingredients to be of utmost benefit.
How to Use
For the perfect ethical cleansing ritual:
Using clean, dry fingers (or a small spoon) take a minimum 5p size scoop into your dry palm. Massage in circular motions onto your dry face including the eye area if make up removal is needed.
Relax for 2 minutes, enjoying the uplifting aroma. Remove in sweeping motions with a facial cloth soaked in warm water.

What to do when it is finished?
This depends on your world view. The container is so beautiful in it’s own right, it could be kept to store precious items like special jewellery.
You could also drop it in your compost bin or depending upon your local recycling facilities, you could send it to landfill where it will happily degrade and not pollute the environment. If you have local industrial composting facilities, it will be pretty much gone in a few months!
