Most people think that frequent and vigorous cleansing with abrasive or antibacterial washes will reduce the oiliness and keep skin clear and healthy. Frequent washing and intense cleansing can worsen inflammation, especially acne-prone skin. For this recipe, you can see water makes up the big portion and little of every other ingredient. This is the beauty of foam dispenser. You don’t need as much of the soap as the pump dispenses very little soap and work with certain ratios to fluff it up so it is enough for you to spread around!
