  • suggestions on this facewash formula for acne prone skin

    SLES 4% active surfactant
    NACL 5.5%
    Xanthan gum 0.3%
    Formalin 0.1%
    Tetrasodium EDTA 0.1%
    Fragrance oil 0.005%
    Citric acid
    pH 5.1

    This is the facewash i make to be used with another product 2% sodium salicylate solution ph5 for acne prone skin.
    This amount of NACL is used mainly because in SLES salt curve it had highest viscosity.
    With 0.3% xanthan gum viscosity is enough.
    skin feel is better than the same formula with 1% CAPB & 1% coco glucoside. So i removed those two.

    It will not be the mildest but it is mild enough for face in my opinion.

    Is there any major drawback in this facewash that can be improved?
