Did you know, neroli, honey, and the addition of a gentle cleansing agent called coco glucoside also make a beautiful, skin healing cleanser?
Coco glucoside is a plant-based surfactant used in many natural cleansers like those from Tom’s of Maine, Davines, La Roche Posey, and The Honest Company and many more.
You can use this cleanser twice a day by itself or as part of the water phase when using the double cleansing method.
