Skin Benefits:

Fortifies the Skin Barrier & Microbiome

Almost all skin conditions stem from the same root cause: a compromised barrier function and microbiome. These are your skin’s first line of defence against infection, dryness and sensitivity, most people don’t realise the disruption harsh cleansing can cause. Biome One Cleansing Balm is a real multi-tasker, delivering biome and barrier-supporting FutureFerments™ as it whisks away stubborn dirt, pollution and make-up.

Nourishes and Restores

Going to bed without thoroughly cleansing your skin can impair its natural overnight regeneration, leading to trapped debris and a dull, lacklustre complexion. The fermented-oil complex in Biome One Cleansing Balm boasts better skin affinity than regular plant-based oils, and together with our fermented micro-algae extract delivers nutrient-rich skin superfoods to your skin with balancing prebiotic benefits.

Soothes and Hydrates

The majority of people suffer from dry skin at some point in their lives - a condition made worse by external aggressors such as the weather and central heating, and the regular use of harsh surfactants can push skin into chronically-dry territory. Biome One Cleansing Balm hydrates to the highest level, with pioneering ferments that strengthen the skin barrier and support the microbiome to guard against TEWL (trans epidermal water loss).

Streamlines your skincare

When a cleanser gives back to the skin, it optimises the effects of the skincare that follows, allowing for a more streamline routine that doesn’t require multiple hydrators to replace what’s been stripped out. This embodies Cultured’s sustainability ethos: simplified skincare that’s better for your skin, and the planet.

Why it's Cultured.

Overly-harsh cleansing can wreak havoc on the delicate microbiome, particularly in skin types prone to sensitivity. Biome One Cleansing Balm harnesses the strengthening and antioxidant powers of our revolutionary FutureFerments™, revitalising, rebalancing and calming lacklustre skin while it lifts away the impurities of the day.

I can’t notice any difference


The best cleanser out there

Great moisturising product

Since I received the cleanser and been using this in my skincare routine I have noticed a huge difference in my skin. I have dry skin and you don't always find moisturising cleansers that penetrate the skin deeply. My skin is glowing more and my skin texture is a lot smoother. I am very impressed by this product.


My go to when my skin feels sensitive ❤️

gentle but effective

This cleanser is so gentle on the skin. I’ve been using it for around 2 years now, and normally I would want to change my cleanser by now because my skin would not be enjoying it anymore. This has not been the case with this cleanser - nothing I have tried compares to how good my skin feels after use. It really helped my dry skin using the range of cultured biome products, but now I only need the cleanser at night, my skin doesn’t feel like it needs additional products like moisturiser or serum until after the cleanse in the morning.

Best cleansing ever

I love this cleansing cream,as I don’t need to wash after cleaning my face. Cleanses gently and leaves face moistured. Best for dry and sensitive skin.
