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 Facial Scrub meets:

 

👑 A formula more pricey than the norm, but worth the extra expense.
🥝 A perfectly safe formula that may contain "scary" ingredients. (Not all naturals are good and not all synthetics are bad.)
🐆 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 whose skin could benefit from some mild chemical exfoliation.

 

Yep, sounds right. I want this wash.
