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 Renew Gel Cleanser meets:

 

👑 A formula more pricey than the norm, but worth the extra expense.
🌯 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 don't mind scented personal care products, or are else not particularly sensitive to fragrances.
💦 A formula for people who don't need or may be sensitive to chemical exfoliants.
