product info
Chemical-free face washes are gentle on skin.

A definition of what constitutes a good face wash can be best summed up as a formulation that is gentle on skin, is non comedogenic (does not trigger any skin reaction), cleanse every trace of dirt without stripping away natural oils, matches the pH level of skin and also nourishes it. Most importantly, it should not have any chemicals in it. It should only be enriched with natural ingredients and leave one with a refreshing feel. Since face wash is something that most of us use at least twice a day, we should invest in a good one and not compromise on the quality whatsoever.
