    I have recently made this facewash. It is gentle and people who have used the samples did like it. I do use 2% salicylic acid in to make it beneficial for acne. I am going to sell this product so i want to know what benefits it will have for consumers so i can write them on label.My questions are

    1. Will 2% salicylic acid in this facewash at pH 4 be beneficial for acne? 

    2. What claims would you make for a facewash like this?

    3. Any other recommendations to improve the performance?


    Salicylic acid 2%
    SLES  6.2% active surfactant
    CAPB 1.2% active surfactant 
    SLS  1% active surfactant
    Lauryl Glucoside 0.6% active surfactant
    Citric acid 0.8%
    Xanthan gum 0.2%
    EDTA 0.2%
    Glyceryl oleate 0.5%
    Phenoxyethanol 0.9%
    Glyceryl Caprylate 0.3%
    Fragrance 0.2%

    Final pH adjusted to 4

    I have cationic guar, PQ10 and Amodimethicone but didn’t add them because it is for face not hair and used glyceryl oleate instead. Which one do you recommend to add?
