Product Rating: 4.3/5 (As per 21 Customer Reviews)
Our Facial Cleanser provides you with a luxurious lather to gently cleanse and soften the skin without the drying effect. This base has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Essential Oils, fragrant oils, botanical extracts and various raw materials can be added in order to customize each product.
Usage: We recommend that no more than 0.5% of any essential oil be added to a Liter of our cosmetic bases. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth feel and rate of absorption.
Drum Orders: • Price is FOB from our warehouse. UPS does not ship drums so shipping charges will be calculated in house with another courier or customers can request their preferred courier. • Price includes bulk open head drum with plastic liner. • A lead time of 3 weeks is needed in order to fill a drum order. • A non-refundable 50% deposit is required. • Special orders for drums cannot be returned.

Rating: This is very mild, very effective and does not burn my eyes. It takes all of my make-up, including mascara, quite easily and rinses off well. I like this product very much and have used it for a couple of years now.

Rating: I could only see this working on very dry, sensitive skin. It's not working at all for my oily/combination skin. I used to have clear skin, but since starting this I've gone from great to tons of breakouts.

Rating: I have tried other bases for y face but this is the only one that does not irritate my eyes. I have added orange essential oil and lavender essential oil and it turns out wonderful.

Rating: I've been using this for a few years not, this is my second 1l bottle.
Its mild and it won't irritate my skin. Its easy to use and lathers quite well.
I've been blending it with cucumber extract and EO or sometimes with tea tree oil ( no the EO ).

Rating: I have to agree with others. This is just too thin.
By:Suzanne, Quakertown, Pennsylvania Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Feb-2011
Rating: I love this base!! Formulates well with EO's and FO's. You don't need a lot per application, about a dime size. It makes a nice subtle lather too. My only complaint is the DMDM Hydnatoin. This is a form of Formaldehyde! PLEASE make this with a natural preservative like grapeseed oil.... or just leave it out completely and let us put the preservative in it.

Rating: Meh, this is just ok. It's pretty easy to combine with other things like oils and such and it washes clean eve though it feels a bit greasy when being used. It's very watery and even a thickener hasn't helped with that, so maybe I need a better thickener or a batter base. I'm gonna keep working with it though because it's not awful.

Rating: This product is okay. Has a heavy soapy smell that's hard to mask. Leaves some residue. I ended up using it as a hand soap, added some EO, which made it very watery.
By:Stella, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love the gentleness of this cleanser. My customers requested more. It does thin out with essential or fragrance oils but you can add Xanathan Gum or other thickeners if needed.
By:Lynda, Birmingham, Alabama Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Dec-2008
Rating: I love this cleanser on my sensitive skin ... I wear contact lenses, and I can rub this cleanser over my eyes to remove all eye makeup, and it will not irritate! I can't feel it in the least! Gives a deep squeaky clean feeling! Will re purchase over and over!!!!
By:Sara, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is a definite keeper for NDA! You can mix any EO's/FO's to this to customize it. The price is a great buy!

Rating: I actually bought this base for my husband and I to use in the home, not to sell to my customers but after one use I am positive that this is going on my product list! It was very moisturizing. Combined with the cream base with jojoba, this is great!
By:Dawn, Virginia Beach, Virginia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Oct-2010
Rating: This is a good base - the only thing I use for my facial care! Interestingly - I have also used this base to make a baby bath gel - my 2 year-old grandson has enjoyed it since he was a newborn. My thought is that if it's kind enough for my sensitive facial skin - it's gotta' be kind enough for our youngest ones. Someday - he will grow out of it - but when his Mum ran out of it one time - he totally viewed the "stuff on hand" with suspicion! The only additives that I have added to this base is - for a 16 oz. batch - to add 25 drops of Lavender Maillette and 12 drops of Roman Chamomile - plus a bit of "lavenderish" colour! I'm just so pleased that this base is mild and light - and would highly recommend it for babies and tots. Thanks again NDA! I'm one of your biggest, confidence-filled fans!

Rating: Please don't ever stop carrying this facial cleanser base! I love it and use it in my new business. It is awesome!
By:Julie, Watertown, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Sep-2009
Rating: A perfect \"basic\" cleanser base! I added lavender/mint EO. (Plus a slight hint of patchouli) Clients love it & can\'t figure out that hint of aroma. Very cleansing, but not irrating. Good for a wide rage of skin-types. (Good for regular bottle types or GREAT for foam bottle types)
Rating: Excellent product, some friend used it and told me that it's really great cleanser. Blend well with bothanical extract and EO. I used it myself, and i see a difference on my face, my face look more fresh and clean. I will buy again.

Rating: I love the fact this cleanser is thin- makes for a wonderful foamy cleanser, used in our airpumps.

Rating: Great for sensitive skin. I've got all my family & friends hooked on it! I blend it with your creamy cleanser for an ultra-nourishing cleanser.
By:Tonya, Caledonia, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I make a great tea tree facial cleaner with this base for my acnea skin.
This is a real great base at a very very low price wow!
By:Caroline, Bearn, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Nice mild cleanser for sensitive skin, but way too thin, it is hard to dispense and hard to use. Will have to add a thickener. I like that it has no scent whatsoever, and was impressed at it's ability to cleanse without any drying. Be prepared to work with this one to get a good finished product, but it might be worth the effort.
By:Jessica, Plano, Texas Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Jun-2006
Rating: My only complaint is the consistency of this product. It is way too thin. The cleanser runs out of the bottle when you turn it over.
