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 Hydrating Facial Cleanser meets:

 

💵 A formula likely found in local drug- and grocery stores, usually below $18/16 oz. bottle.
🥝 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 who don't need or may be sensitive to chemical exfoliants.

 

Yep, sounds right. I want this wash.
