This facewash is customizable to fit your unique needs. Not sure what to customize with? Click to read this article

A concentrated facewash with alpha-hydroxy acid to turn over skin cells faster for a brighter, cleaner appearance right away. Melee is for dry, oily, acne prone, aging, scarred, or normal skin. This facewash should be customized and includes no preservatives and no chemicals of any kind. Sea salt and spirulina detoxify the skin and pores. Oatmeal and aloe vera sooth and heal skin issues naturally.


Melee is made from food grade ingredients and has successfully treated a myriad of skin issues. Our first belief here is STOP USING SOAP. At all. Seriously.

This is a blend of organic oatmeal, sucanat, sea salt, Himalayan salt, and herbs and essential oils that deeply cleanses, soothes, and fortifies the skin against daily exposure to sun and pollutants.

One of the most important virtues at Brazen Bee is being able to customize your facewash so that you are maximizing your daily regimen and your money. No one should have to pay for things they don't need and skin care is a tricky business, more is not always better when it comes to skin treatments.

Ingredients: Organic Oatmeal, Organic Sucanat, Sea Salt, Himalayan Pink Salt, Organic Yucca Root Powder, Organic Cape Aloe Vera Powder, Organic Spirulina, Frankincense Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Rosemary Essential Oil

Benefits of Each Ingredient

Oats: Oats have been used for skin maladies since 2000 bc. They should not be forgotten as one of the original skin remedies. Oats contain sopanins which attach to impurities and gently remove excess oil from the skin with absolutely no drying or tightening of the skin. Colloidal oatmeal was recognized by the FDA as a skin protectant in 2003. It is one of the few herbs recognized in the United States for its natural properties. Oats 6 major components that are recognized as scientifically beneficial for skin. Avenanthramides (anti-itch, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-irritant), avenacins (sopanin and anti-fungal), flavanoids (anti-bacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory), phenolics (antioxidant), Beta-Glucan (sought after skin ingredient now because it is highly penetrative and has shown to have more ling term hydration protection than hyaluronic acid, speeds healing), lipids (work to protect the skin, antioxidant), and peptides.

Oats provide all those benefits and otherwise expensive components in one beautiful place.

Sucanat- Naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acids? Yes, please! This is the only true "sugar in the raw" that actually exists. Sucanat is fresh pressed and dried cane juice without undergoing any removal of vitamins or minerals. Sugar is an easy source of alpha-hydroxy acids where other companies want to isolate and charge an arm and leg for them, I found them in their rawest form with the inclusion of nutritive vitamins and minerals. 

Alpha-hydroxy acids- (as found in sucanat) are well-known to speed up cell regeneration and improve the smoothness and brightness of skin. Glycolic acid is the main alpha-hydroxy in sugar cane and this is the smallest of the acids and works to gently break the bond between old skin cells so they can slough away without irritation or rough scrubbing. Glycolic acid also increases the moisture level in the skin cells keeping them plump and healthy. 

Sea salt- natural detoxifier, highly effective anti-bacterial, exfoliator.

Himalayan Pink Salt- provides minerals and trace minerals in their ultimate natural form for the skin.

Yucca Root Powder- also known as "soap root." This is a wonderful natural cleanser and lathers s

    Fabulous Facewash!

    Posted by Sharon on Jun 24th 2019

    I’ve been using Melee for a few months now. The smell is intoxicating. It feels wonderful on my face and even better after rinsing. I like using Melee in the morning and Stiletto moisturizer at night. Not sure if it’s one product or the combination, but my rosacea is no longer an issue. Thank you, Courtney!

    Still Loving It

    Posted by Caitlin Morissette on Jan 27th 2019

    I have been using Melee for about 2 years now and just wanted to say that it is still doing amazing things for my face! I do change up the formula now and then, most recently to accommodate for what seems like worse winter dryness than ever before. My face always feels refreshed and never dry after (I use Enlighten toner and oil, sometimes Stiletto also) and it remains clear, smooth and even toned. I love this product!

    Wonderful facewash

    Posted by Sarah on Dec 14th 2018

    I first purchased the trial pack of face washes knowing that I only needed the most gentle cleanser, but also thinking that my 15 year old niece would like to try some of the products. While I enjoyed Georgia Sweet, she has a bit of mild achne and she reported that it cleared up within days of using Melee. She was already shelling out a fortune to chemical-filled products that were doing her no favors, so getting her to switch to this was pretty easy. I offered to buy her the first bottle myself so she would be able to reap the wonderful benefits of herbal cleansing. She loves it! Thank you so much for all you do!

    Fabulous Facewash

    Posted by Jane on Aug 16th 2018

    Both my daughter and I use it and agree it's the best facewash product around. Also, getting it in the powder form and adding your own water is really economical - it lasts a long time.

    Love this facewash

    Posted by Melissa on Aug 6th 2018

    This stuff is seriously amazing. I've been using it for nearly a year now, and my skin is soo happy. My skin is oily but also quite sensitive, so I've always struggled finding products that were strong enough to keep acne at bay, but gentle enough to not make my skin into an angry, red, peeling mess. Melee face wash fits the bill! I found Brazen Bee by chance when I was dealing with some hormonal cystic acne, and this face wash cleared it up within about six weeks. My skin tone is more even overall and, since Melee doesn't strip away natural oils, my skin is less oily and more moisturized. This facewash is definitely a keeper for me. I'll be using it for as long as Courtney makes it! Lastly, if you ever find yourself in Manitou Springs, I'd definitely recommend getting one-on-one advice and suggestions. Courtney really knows her stuff and is incredibly helpful!!

    A must have!

    Posted by Becca on Aug 1st 2018

    I love, love, love this face wash! It's a bit pricey for me but I redid my budget to accommodate it because it's worth every penny. Went without for a month and within two weeks of using it again daily, almost all of my zits cleared up. It leaves my skin soft, bright, and glowing too. And my boyfriend keeps telling me how amazing my skin looks. I use an oil cleanser at night and this in the morning, along with the Blatant toner 2x a day and the SHU moisturizer at night. I reccomend this brand to anyone who will listen to me. Don't let the fact that it's a powder scare you, you'll adjust. End rave! :)

    This was my very first purchase from Brazen Bee and I fell in love. Honestly, I was unsure if I would like this type of face wash, however I found that it makes my skin super soft. I also use it as a mask, add it to my cleansing oil, and add it to a vegan gel cleanser i have on super hot and humid days. It is very versatile and i LOVE that i can customize it. I always get the large bottle and it lasts forever.

    Amazing stuff!

    Posted by Jessie on Mar 5th 2018

    This face wash is amazing! I was really hesitant about a powdered face wash but actually it fits my lifestyle perfectly. It’s so much easier traveling with it! No leaking liquids in the baggage. I asked Courtney for recommendations for my skin and she gave me a list of herbs to add and I couldn’t be any happier with the result. My skin is so much calmer now and soft and I’m just head over heels for this stuff!

    Favorite facewash

    Posted by Megan on Mar 2nd 2018

    This stuff is amazing as a facewash and a mask. My face has never been happier. Clears pesky pimples overnight. The large bottle also lasted me a long time. No scary chemicals and safe for pregnant women too! Definitely recommend.
