KALKÁY (call-kay) is the Squamish word for wild rose bush.
Made with locally & sustainably-harvested rosehips and organic sweet almond and jojoba oils, this bestselling facial oil absorbs quickly while deeply hydrating the skin. The properties of rose help reduce redness and irritation. This oil feels light on the skin and leaves it super soft and nourished. The rose scent is incredible!

About the Brand
Before there was a conversation about clean, green and natural skincare, there were communities of Indigenous womxn who cultivated and foraged for plants in the forests and meadows to use as food and medicine. Instructed by cultural teachings, they identified the plants that, when blended together, could unlock health and healing.
Today, Sḵwálwen (skwall-win) is an Indigenous skincare line that honors Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) plant knowledge and ancestral traditions by using sustainably harvested and sourced organic plants to balance, renew, repair, strengthen, hydrate and protect the skin. Sḵwálwen is the Squamish word for heart. Each product has a Squamish name to honor the place where this plant knowledge comes from.
