Naturally Gentle Face Wash Bar

(Formula #105-01J)

Naturally Gentle Face Wash Bar

Why we love it:

It’s not your average bar of soap – this facial cleansing bar has a high oil load and gentle, plant-derived surfactants to protect and moisturize skin while removing dirt, oil, and makeup. Free from dyes and perfumes, the formulation is also vegan, water-wise and all-natural, meeting top consumer trends. The bar format is great for travel and requires minimal packaging.

Trends it supports:

Formulation highlights:

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, made from renewable coconut fatty acids, gently removes dirt, oil, and makeup. Daikon Seed Extract is a partially-upcycled ingredient that imparts a silicone-like slip while improving skin barrier function. Meadowfoam Seed Oil XPR brings superior oxidative stability to the formulation and helps increase the shelf life of other natural oils when blended.
