Why did Beaker Bot select this face wash for me?
Beaker doesn’t just suggest a random (or sponsored!) face wash formula for you. We match your Beaker Bot quiz answers to quantitive characteristics that your formula must satisfy. Here’s which specs Hydro Boost Gentle Cleansing Lotion meets:
💵 A formula likely found in local drug- and grocery stores, usually below $18/16 oz. bottle.
🌯 A formula that avoids ingredients with a bad rap. (Even if the ingredients’ "scary" reputations aren’t backed by science, we still appreciate the emotional weight of chemophobia.)
🐆 A formula for people whose skin needs only a gentle clean, or could benefit from oily formulas.
☁️ A formula for people who prefer at most a slight un-gendered scent in their personal care products.
💦 A formula for people who don't need or may be sensitive to chemical exfoliants.
