    well you should consider that a face wash will not be on the face very long at all, and will have some kind of surfactant so its inherent design means  that it’s not a great system for delivering ‘actives’. 

    There are ingredients you could try  like AHA’s or Sal acid, but I hesitate to recommend them because you need to have a strong formulation background to avoid  making something potentially unsafe. 

    Maybe you should start by looking at products you like that have the same claims as what you are interested in, and take a look at their ingredients lists.

    Few ingredients in leave on products (i.e. skin creams) actually make a noticeable difference, most don’t.

    Rinse off products like face wash have too little time to act on the skin.
    The best you can do is to formulate a very mild facewash so it doesn’t irritate skin, but that’s about it.

    Hint: stay away from pseudoscientific blogs that praise or bash some ingredients without any scientific proof.

    Bluring powder but it takes know how, adding the proper colors making sure they are batch certified….
