Gentle Honey Cleanser
Gentle Honey Cleanser
Our Gentle Honey Cleanser is a 100% self-preserving formulation , this means we have used what we call in the industry, hurdle technology, to keep it fresh for extended periods of time. This means that each ingredient is included at such a level to not allow microbes to grow. This is ideal for people who are sensitive to preservatives.
And it is easy to process; it requires no heating or specialist equipment. Small batches can easily be stirred by hand and larger batches can be made easily and effortlessly with a regular stand mixer. This is the perfect formulation for established natural cosmetic entrepreneurs as well as those still growing their natural skincare business.
Not only that, this formulation contains over 70% total organic content that would fall under COSMOS Physically Processed Agro Ingredients (PPAI); and it is 100% natural.
