Facial Cleanser

OEM & Private Label Facial Cleanser

Most of the environmental impurities and cosmetic products our skin comes in touch with aren’t water-soluble, so washing the skin with water isn’t enough to get rid of them.

These residuals on the skins can react with oxygen and cause skin problems. When exposed to the sun or bacteria, various physical, chemical and biochemical reactions will occur, forming some irritating substances that may harm the skin. Therefore, even for healthy skin, facial cleanser is a necessary step.

You can choose the right cleansing products according to your skin types. For sensitive or fragile skin types, gentle and mild cleansers should be considered, and special cleaning and care are required occasionally.

Based on the types of main surfactants, Ausmetics OEM private label face wash can be divided into soap-based, amino-acid based and compound facial cleansers.

Soap-based Facial Cleanser

This chemical process of saponification means fatty acids made from using lye to treat vegetable and animal fats. What makes soap work is that it emulsifies oil and water. With soap, oil can be broken down to droplets that can be washed away by water.

Soap-based facial cleanser has the following features: rich texture, smooth and dense foam, strong cleaning ability, easy to rinse, and refreshing touch after use.

Products that are purely soap-based has a pH of 9-10. But our skin’s pH is around 5. This means soap is not gentle enough for most skins. It is easy to cause tightness and dryness after cleansing especially for people with fragile skins.

Amino Acid Facial Cleanser

Amino acid is recognized by skin experts because it is the most gentle facial cleanser. It is very effective while being skin-friendly with low irritation, which makes it suitable for sensitive skin. However, it doesn’t generate rich foam.

Amino acids play a important role in skin care. There are some types that come with specific benefits for skins:

  • Arginine: helps restore visible skin damage like scars and damage from sunburns.
  • Histidine: soothes the skin and has antioxidant properties, which helps keep the skin fresh and young.
  • Methionine: protect our skin from harsh chemical products we use daily, such as cleaning liquids, detergents, etc.
  • Lysine: strengthens the skin’s surface, making it more flexible and resilient to physical strains
  • Proline, leucine and glycine: smoothens fine lines and wrinkles

Above are just a handful of examples. Among all the amino acids, there are many types that will bring benefits to our skins.

Compound Facial Cleanser

Different surfactants work differently and have their own benefits. In order to develop a user-friendly facial cleanser, a balance between foaming, cleansing efficiency, and mildness is required. The method is compounding different surfactants.

For example: soap-based surfactants are fast to foam. With its dense and rich foam, soaps are easy to wash off, but will bring the dry feeling afterwards. By combing soaps with AES, we can make a product with rich foam, but with refreshing and moisturizing feeling.

Other types of surfactant compounds also have excellent synergistic effects. For example, the use of amino acid surfactants with soaps can reduce irritation; AES and APG with amino acid surfactants can solve the problem of weak foaming.

We can manufacture customized products based on your chosen ingredients and specific requirements.
