We selected purposeful ingredients to soothe skin AND reduce the risk of allergic reactions. We do not use dye, fragrance, lanolin, parabens, or other chemicals that can trigger side effects.
Not only does it not leave a chalky after-look, and is it in the coolest bottle that is super efficient and easy, but it also SUPER SAFE. So many other products have terrible ingredients, are bad for the environment, or I don't feel good using as someone who has endometriosis and super sensitive skin. So grateful for Balmere!
I've been on the hunt for the perfect mineral sunscreen for forever, and Balmere is it. It's so smooth, not at all heavy or greasy like some other formulas I've tried.
It disappears into my skin and it gives me a matte finish that's the perfect primer for my makeup. And no signs of any irritation or breakouts, which is always a concern I have. 10/10 recommend, this is so far the best mineral sunscreen I've used!
Because I’ve been in active chemo for 7 years now, I was hesitant to buy a cleanser since they usually dry my skin out - I am on a treatment that is particularly hard on my skin. I was really surprised that my skin didn’t feel tight and dried out after using the cleanser. I almost forgot to put in moisturizer, which is amazing because with any other cleanser my face feels like it’s going to crack within minutes of drying it off. So nice to be able to actually use something besides water! The Balmere cleanser almost felt as though it was moisturizing my skin.
Love my Balmere face wash! You don’t get the dry and tight feeling after use… It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated.
I am a big fan - from the pump to the actual cleanser, it's become a staple in my skincare both day and night!
For context, I'm a physician and am so excited to see a skincare company founded by another physician - it really gives me confidence about the product and its ingredients.
My hyper-sensitive skin always felt stripped after cleaning, thereby requiring repeated layers of extra hydration from serums and moisturizers. I have found that after switching to this cleanser I can dispense with the majority of my products and still maintain clean pores. Wonderful!
I was extremely pleased to receive my sunscreen and was immediately taken with its ergonomic container as arthritis normally interferes with the dispensers commonly used for high-end beauty products. Though I was primarily after a sunscreen for my post-chemo sensitive skin, this 3-in-1 quickly replaced my other moisturizers & primers. As a South Asian, I was relieved to see the smooth absorption and lack of whitish cast after application. Adding layers of makeup didn’t cause any pilling or streaking and I appreciated the easy removal of all products at night. I am relieved to finally find a company that produces products that don’t irritate my skin, allows me to simplify my routines and are ergonomic for easy use.
The product is lightweight and love that it is 3 in 1.
I have friends and family members who aren't able to buy just any old cleanser, or SPF given health issues so I'm so happy to see this product. My dad had multiple myeloma and I wish I could have given him this product. Also, I plan on using it all myself - if it's safe for cancer survivors, then it's definitely safe for me.
I am *loving* my Balmere face wash and sunscreen! Specifically about the sunscreen - I'm pretty sure I haven't found any alternatives that are this lightweight and clear yet are fully mineral. I'm a physician and have done my research about different options for sunscreen - Balmere is both effective and free of harmful chemical sunblock ingredients!
The sunscreen blends into my skin without producing any whitish cast (I am East Asian) and doesn't feel sticky at all. I even got my partner to use it and he normally hates sunblock because of its stickiness and how it can make you feel hotter. He's a fan too 🎉
Highly recommend this!

20 million US adults live with cancer and may have received chemotherapy, radiation or immunotherapy.
Due to treatment, one can develop painful skin reactions, scarring and hyperpigmentation--especially people of color who are disproportionately impacted.
The right products can protect your skin AND reduce your risk of secondary cancers, which is 65x the standard population.
For over 10 years, I suffered from a painful medical condition. I underwent aggressive treatment, which led to sensitive skin and minimal skin care options, particularly as a person of color. As a practicing Oncologist, I saw my patients suffer painful skin symptoms with few effective options.
While attending Stanford Business School, teachers and global leaders supported my vision to develop products for thrivers' unique needs. Many had experienced it themselves.
I founded Balmere to develop high quality, clinically tested products that enable you to live fully for years to come.

Chemo did a number on my skin. So glad we now have skin care products developed by a trustable source who really understands my needs.
When my mom was diagnosed with cancer, I felt guilty that I couldn’t be with her across the country. I was grateful I could send her something useful from a trusted source.
It's really hard to find sunscreen as a Black woman. Balmere feels good and looks even better.
