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 Ultra-Calming Hydrating Gel Cleanser 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.
