Mileage may vary-as skin varies.

When formulating soaps that are destined for use on your face or other sensitive areas be sure to be aware of what you are adding. You don't need a degree in dermatology or CNA training to make the proper soaps for facial cleansing and moisturizing, but be sure to to do proper research on your ingredients beforehand.
