The CoalFace Soap is a cleanser in solid bar form. It is black in colour due to charcoal powder, one of its main ingredients, with tiny specks of glitter for aesthetic purposes. It also contains linalool, a naturally derived ingredient favoured for its pleasant scent, which gives the CoalFace Soap a subtle, yummy smell. On the other hand, the CoalFace Cleanser is a cleanser in liquid form, with a gel-like consistency. Like its big sister, it is also black in colour with tiny golden specks.



Selecting the star ingredients for the Soap and Cleanser was quite a challenge for the founders, who wanted something unique yet effective. But after thorough research, they finally settled on charcoal and honey.

Activated charcoal is carbon soot which has undergone a process that gives it a sponge-like, porous structure. This porous structure means that it has a large surface area which can help it grab onto things. Simply put, the presence of charcoal in Kayman Beauty cleansers increases the efficacy of removing excess sebum and dirt from pores, like a clay mask. In other words, it acts like an “oil magnet.”

Honey, on the other hand, is hailed as one of the miraculous skin-healing ingredients. Kayman Beauty CoalFace Soap and CoalFace Cleanser are formulated with high-grade, pure honey, to ensure the best of quality.  Honey is also known for its anti-bacterial properties, which can help to reduce acne. It is also beneficial to brighten the skin, reduce hyperpigmentation and nourish the skin, as well as reduce fine lines and wrinkles, thanks to its potent antioxidants. Honey is just ridiculously amazing – you can never go wrong with it!



Both the CoalFace Soap and CoalFace Cleanser serve the same function, which is to cleanse the skin. They are both second cleansers, meaning you should use a makeup remover/pre-cleansing product before using any of these two. Our cleansing products are not able to provide effective makeup removal; thus, pre-cleansing is required.

CoalFace Soap is generally more effective for sebum control and deep pore cleansing, which means that those with oily, acne-prone skin are more likely to benefit from the effects of the Soap. CoalFace Soap is formulated using a glycerine base with minimal ingredients and can easily “melt” if not handled properly. To maintain the CoalFace Soap, it is best to place it in a dry and clean soap dish to avoid constant contact with water and prevent melting. The soap dish should be cleaned regularly to avoid bacterial contamination. It is also advisable to cut the Soap into smaller pieces and use one part at a time.

CoalFace Cleanser, on the other hand, is formulated to be the more hydrating sister to the Soap. This mild, sulphate-free cleanser contains aloe vera and green tea extracts for an extra soothing effect. CoalFace Cleanser does not contain any fragrance in any form, making it a desirable option for all skin types, especially those with dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin. As CoalFace Cleanser comes in its own pump bottle, it is easier to store – just put it in a cool, dry place and everything’s good!

Still confused? No worries! Here’s a table to sum it all up:


We hope that all your confusions & questions are all answered!

    hello, i have been told that my skin is suitable with coal face soap since my face is oily and acne-prone skin. but can i know why people purchase or use both products like coal face soap with coal face cleanser at the same time, does it make any differences if i only use the coal face soap with the rosa essence. Thankyou!

      Hello, people always purchase CoalFace Soap and CoalFace Cleanser together because of their own preferences. CoalFace Soap is more deep cleansing, so people love using it in their night routine to remove make up and etc while CoalFace Cleanser is more gentle side (mild cleansing) and using it in morning routine would be the best.

      But, there will be no problem if you want to use only CoalFace Soap and Rosa Glow Essence together.

      I hope this answer your question.

      Hello! The pleasant smell in our CoalFaceSoap actually comes from an ingredient called linalool. In our latest batches of soap production, we decided to exclude linalool in our formulation to cater to those with highly sensitive skin (eg eczema, psoriasis). Note that linalool does not contribute to or affect the performance of the soap.

        • administrator says:

          All CoalFace Soap manufactured from July 2019 onwards is linalool free. You may check the manufacturing date printed on the cardboard carton of the product.

      Hello! Both are great! If you prefer deep cleansing effect or an everyday makeup wearer, CoalFaceSoap will be an excellent choice. If you prefer milder, gentler cleanser, you may go for our CoalFace Cleanser.
