Active Ingredients

A well-designed liquid facial cleanser will use nonionic and silicone surfactants (surface-acting agents).

Nonionic surfactants such as polysorbate have a low risk of irritation and are pH-compatible with the skin.

Silicone surfactants, such as dimethicone, penetrate follicles and crevices to bring dirt to the surface while softening skin and creating a protective film. Silicone surfactants are non-irritating, noncomedogenic and hypoallergenic.
