This innovative approach allows for thorough cleansing that maintains your skin’s natural integrity.

    How long will it take to see results while using The Face Wash?

    Embrace consistency and witness the transformative journey your skin will undergo. Here’s what you can expect when you make our face wash a staple in your daily routine:

    Week 1: Immediate Relief. Within just one week of consistent use you’ll notice your skin finding its balance. Oil production will normalize, inflammation will subside, and any emerging breakouts will start to recede. Your skin will not only feel refreshed but will begin to reveal a clearer, more vibrant look.

    Week 2: Visible Improvements in Texture and Tone: By the second week, the enhanced skin turnover and boosted circulation will start to visibly repair and renew your skin’s surface. Blemishes will lighten, and your overall complexion will show a noticeable evenness and improved texture.

Your skin will approach a state of self-regulation, where it maintains its health and balance, effectively managing its responses to environmental stresses and internal changes.

    Stick with the routine, and let the potent yet gentle ingredients do their work. As your skin adjusts and begins to thrive, you’ll see not just temporary fixes but lasting changes that reflect a healthier, more resilient complexion.

    How should I use The Face Wash for optimal results?

    Step 1 - Preparation: Start by applying the face wash to wet skin. This can be done either in the shower or at the sink.

    Step 2 - Application: Gently massage the product into your skin until it begins to lather, ensuring thorough coverage.

    Step 3 - Rinse: After massaging, rinse off the product completely and gently pat your skin dry with a soft towel.

    Step 4 - Follow-Up: For the best results, follow up with F01: The Face Lotion. This will help lock in moisture and provide additional nourishing benefits.

    Usage Tips:

    - A little goes a long way! Just one pump is sufficient for each use.
    - Avoid direct contact with open eyes to prevent any potential irritation.

    Will The Face Wash remove makeup and sunscreen?

    Absolutely! Our face wash is meticulously designed to be a powerhouse in removing not only daily grime and pollutants but also all traces of makeup and sunscreen. This is achieved without the harshness typically associated with deep cleansers.

    Deep Cleansing Without Stripping: Unlike many cleansers that can leave your skin feeling tight and dry, our formula ensures that while it deeply cleanses, it maintains the skin's natural moisture and oil balance. This means you can remove even the most stubborn waterproof makeup and high SPF sunscreens effortlessly.

    Gentle Yet Effective Ingredients: With a blend of natural antioxidants, amino acids, and fatty acids, the face wash breaks down and washes away everything from foundation and mascara to thick, mineral-based sunscreens. This cleansing action is thorough yet gentle, ensuring that your skin remains calm and soothed.

    Is The Face Wash safe for sensitive skin?

    Yes! Our face wash is designed with sensitive skin in mind, ensuring that everyone can enjoy a deep, effective cleanse without the risk of irritation.

    Ultra-Gentle Formula: By avoiding harsh chemicals commonly found in facial cleansers, such as BHAs and AHAs, our face wash ensures a soothing experience. It's crafted to respect your skin's natural oils and moisture barrier, preventing the tight, dry feeling often left by other products.

    Soothing Ingredients: The inclusion of skin-friendly antioxidants, amino acids, and polyphenols helps to calm inflammation and redness, which are common concerns for sensitive skin types. These ingredients work together to soothe as they cleanse, making it ideal for those prone to irritation.

    Maintains Skin Balance: Beyond just cleansing, this face wash helps to regulate oil production and reinforce the skin's natural defenses. This means that with regular use, your skin is not only clean but also more resilient and less prone to sensitivity over time.

    By integrating our face wash into your daily routine, you're not only removing impurities but also nurturing your sensitive skin, ensuring it remains healthy, calm, and balanced.

    Will The Face Wash sting my eyes?

    While our face wash is packed with skin-loving ingredients like Aloe, known for its soothing and healing properties, it's designed for your skin, not your eyes. It's important to use it accordingly to avoid discomfort.

    Mild Sensation Possible: Aloe is fantastic for your skin but can cause a brief stinging sensation if it gets into your eyes. This is normal for many natural ingredients that are beneficial for topical use.

    Usage Caution: To avoid any potential discomfort, we recommend keeping your eyes closed while washing your face. This practice ensures that you can enjoy all the benefits of our face wash without any irritation to your eyes.

    Designed for Skin Health: Remember, the primary goal of our face wash is to nourish and cleanse your skin effectively. It's part of a comprehensive skincare routine that prioritizes your skin's health and safety.

    By following these simple guidelines, you can make the most of our face wash’s benefits without worrying about stinging your eyes. Enjoy the soothing, cleansing action of Aloe and other skin-enhancing ingredients safely and effectively.

    Will The Face Wash help acne-prone skin?

    It sure will. Our face wash is especially effective for those dealing with acne-prone skin. Here’s how it helps:

    Deep Cleansing: It goes beyond surface cleaning to thoroughly remove oil, makeup, and impurities that can block pores and lead to breakouts.

    Regulates Oil Production: By controlling excess oil without stripping the skin of its natural moisture, it helps maintain a balanced environment where acne is less likely to flourish.

    Gentle Exfoliation: The formulation includes ingredients that gently exfoliate the skin, promoting the removal of dead skin cells and preventing the clogged pores that can lead to acne.

    Soothing Inflammation: Anti-inflammatory properties from ingredients like Aloe and chamomile help to calm skin irritation and redness associated with acne breakouts.

    Preventing Future Breakouts: Regular use helps to improve skin turnover and regulate skin functions, reducing the likelihood of future acne flare-ups.

    This face wash is designed to tackle the complex issues of acne-prone skin gently and effectively, helping you achieve a clearer, healthier complexion with consistent use.

    How does The Face Wash fit into an anti-aging skincare routine?

    This face wash is a vital first step in an anti-aging skincare routine, especially when combined with Formula 01: The Face Lotion, and here’s why:

    Promotes Cell Turnover: By gently exfoliating the skin, it helps remove dead skin cells, speeding up the renewal process. Fresher, younger cells are brought to the surface faster, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    Enhances Product Absorption: After washing, your skin is primed to soak up the anti-aging ingredients delivered by The Face Lotion, maximizing its benefits.

    Improves Collagen Production: Ingredients like antioxidants and amino acids support collagen synthesis, a crucial factor in maintaining skin’s elasticity and firmness. Consistent use helps to sustain the skin’s youthful structure and appearance.

    Defends Against Environmental Stressors: The antioxidant properties of the face wash shield the skin from free radicals and pollution, which are known to accelerate aging.

    Incorporating this face wash into your daily routine not only ensures a clean and refreshed complexion but also lays the foundation for effective anti-aging treatment, keeping your skin looking youthful and vibrant.

    What is the pH level of The Face Wash?

    The pH level of our face wash is precisely balanced at 4.5. This meticulous formulation aligns closely with your skin's natural pH, which typically ranges from 4.5 to 5.5. Maintaining this acidic environment is crucial because:

    Preserves Skin Barrier: A pH of 4.5 helps to support the skin's acid mantle, a thin layer on the surface of your skin that acts as a barrier to bacteria, viruses, and other potential contaminants that might penetrate the skin.

    Ensures Gentle Cleansing: By matching the natural pH of your skin, our face wash avoids disrupting your skin's balance, ensuring a gentle yet effective cleansing process without causing irritation or dryness.

    Optimizes Skin Health: Maintaining the correct pH level helps prevent common skin concerns such as acne and eczema, which can occur when the skin's pH is too alkaline.

    Using a face wash with a balanced pH level not only cleanses your skin but also maintains its natural defenses, promoting a healthier, more resilient complexion.

    How long does The Face Wash last?

    Shelf Life: 2 years prior to opening. But, to guarantee the freshest and most potent experience possible, we craft our products in exclusive micro-batches of just 250 units. This painstaking process ensures that no unit sits for more than 30 days before reaching you.

    Period After Opening: 12 -18 months after opening.

    Usage: When used 1-2x daily, a single 236mL (8oz) bottle of our face wash designed to last approximately 4 months, making it a lasting addition to your skincare routine.



    "Pleasantly surprised as to how effective this face wash is - non-foaming, spreads easily and a little goes a long way; it cleanses my oily skin well without any harsh drying effect that I get from most other cleaners. Does not leave any film and rinses off easily. Likely one of the best facial cleaners i've ever used" - Carol (Verified Basic Maintenance Customer)

    An excellent face wash!

    This isn't my first review of the Basic Maintenance face wash. I've been using it for going on three months and my skin has never been clearer. What's more, I use a drop or a bit more and it's more than enough to wash my face, neck and ears. Unlike too many of even the "moisturizing" face washes out there, this one doesn't strip my skin or cause me to break out. I like the simple formula and I really, really like how effective it is, both for the price and the product.


    Easy on the skin. Feels fresh and thoroughly cleansed.

    So soft

    I have been using the cleanser and moisturizer for about 2 weeks and my skin looks clear and feels very soft. I’m 67 so expecting no miracles (although one would be nice). So far I can say I would order again.
