Featured__ Why We Love Face Wash Powder

August 03, 2015 | By

You probably use powder in your hair from time to time when you skip a wash, and you might even use it on your body when you have to run back to work after you hit the gym on your lunch break. But did you know you can also use powder to clean your face?

Face wash powders begin as the consistency of baby powder – kind of like a chalky dust. You mix them with a little bit of water and they turn into lightweight liquid cleansers. They’re especially great for when you need to keep face wash with you on the go – shaking out some powder is a lot less messy than cleaning up a soapy liquid cleanser when it spills in your gym bag. And, unlike liquid cleansers, they don’t include harsh ingredients like alcohol and preservatives.
