Thank you for your question, Ivy. I would imagine this product to be very good for the body. I’m very hesitant to say that it would be “good” for the skin on the face. You must remember that the skin on your body is quite different to the skin on your face, particularly because your face is constantly exposed to the elements, and the body is less so. Generally soaps are not advisable on the face, because they strip your skin’s barrier protection. I would definitely feel more comfortable to advise soap-free cleanser for the facial skin.
