The Face Wash


"This is a brilliant product. I look better than ever."- M.N (Basic Maintenance Client)

Struggling with blemishes and lifeless skin?

Experience a transformative dose of skin-brightening activity with our fragrance-free, gentle cleanser that helps: 

✔  clear acne and bust up blackheads to keep your confidence soaring.

  keep skin refreshed to protect your natural glow.

✔  calms and soothes easily irritated skin for a wash without worries.

Your skin deserves the best. Treat yourself today.

This deep cleansing, pH balanced gel helps control oil, regulate bacteria, and improve collagen production and circulation, all while not stripping it of anything essential.

Active-packed with antioxidants, amino acids, polyphenols, and fatty acids, it's a topical-storm of skin-friendly activity that:

  • Cleanses and detoxifies.
  • Controls oil buildup.
  • Removes makeup.
  • Helps regulate bacteria.
  • Gently exfoliates.
  • Treats imperfections.
  • Prevents breakouts + blackheads.
  • Minimizes pores.
  • Promotes circulation.
  • Calms irritation.
  • Evens complexion and fades dark spots.
  • Combats oxidative stress.
  • Relieves inflammation.
  • Promotes skin turnover.
  • Encourages healthy collagen production.
  • Preserves skin barrier function.
  • Antioxidant. Anti-inflammatory. Antimicrobial. Antifungal.

This non-irritating cleanser does so much more than just clean.

It combines the benefits of a double-cleanse and an exfoliating product but without the extra effort - or the extra issues.

Mainstream products with similar functionality do so with harsh chemicals - BHAs, AHA's etc - that overcorrect, leaving your skin vulnerable to new problems. Those new problems require addressing with yet another product - and the cycle continues.

Here at Basic Maintenance, we prefer just one. One that does it all so you don't have to. 

Saving you time, money and frustration while reducing waste.

Suitable for all skin types and conditions, this pH balanced, ultra-gentle gel was formulated for anyone looking to make the most of their time - and their skin - with as little effort as possible. 

  • In the shower or at the sink, apply to wet skin. Gently massage until it begins to lather. Rinse off, pat dry.
  • A little goes a long way. Just 1 pump is all you need.
  • Avoid contact with open eyes.
  • Best results when used before F01: The Face Lotion
  • Product lasts appx 3-4 months if used twice a day.

The only condition is consistency. Use 1-2 times daily, day and night.

  • 1 week: oil production starts to regulate, inflammation calms and new breakouts begin to wane. Skin appears clearer, cleaner and more vibrant.
  • 2 weeks: skin turnover improves, circulation improves, blemishes and dark spots begin to fade and complexion evens out.
  • 3 weeks: collagen production improves, new breakout formation slows down and skin approaches steady-state of self-regulation.

    Key Ingredients

    Famously fresh. Locally formulated and micro-batched for unmatched consistency.


    Jojoba hydrates your skin, locking in moisture for a fresh, plump feel without clogging pores. It mirrors your natural oils, balancing oil production for a clear, healthy complexion. Rich in vitamin E, it shields your skin from environmental damage, while soothing and healing common skin issues like acne and dryness, leaving your skin smooth and comfortable.


    Argan oil delivers a burst of nourishment to your skin, protecting it from daily environmental stress and keeping it looking healthy and vibrant. Its deep moisturizing ability leaves your skin feeling soft and supple, while also calming redness and helping to heal acne scars. Perfect for everyday use, this lightweight, non-greasy oil enhances your skin's natural beauty without clogging pores.


    Chamomile, packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, deeply soothes the skin, reducing redness and calming irritations. Its astringent properties help tighten pores and smooth the skin, while its brightening effects work to fade acne scars and even out skin tone. Additionally, chamomile offers anti-aging benefits by protecting against environmental stress and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking fresh and youthful.


    Aloe is a skin care powerhouse, packed with vitamins, minerals, and natural compounds that provide a range of benefits from anti-inflammatory to antimicrobial actions. It's renowned for accelerating the healing of wounds and soothing skin irritations like burns, reducing redness and fighting infections. Aloe also plays a key role in anti-aging by boosting the production of vital skin components like hyaluronic acid and collagen, while its anti-acne properties and natural hydration make it ideal for maintaining smooth, clear, and well-moisturized skin.


    Glycerin is a natural moisturizer that draws water to your skin, keeping it hydrated and preventing dryness. It strengthens your skin's barrier, protecting against irritants and boosting skin's resilience, making it healthier and more robust. Additionally, glycerin aids in healing, has mild germ-fighting properties, and replenishes essential moisturizing factors, keeping your skin soft and supple as you age.



    "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)

    Doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin

    Thank you for making good, clean products without scent. My face feels so clean & never tight & dry. Does not flare my rosacea. My forever cleanser

    Every pump is magic!

    This bottle has been a complete revelation. Get's rid of my make-up, sunscreen, whatever else I decided to get on my face that day and leaves it feeling as fresh as ever! I've been using this and the face lotion for a few months now and my skin looks and feels marvellous.

    Have been using this since day 1 and my face is always clear and fresh. Wouldn't go with anything else

    A Truly Warm Reaction

    The very first time I used The Face Wash my face was so warm & soft after. My skin was clearly responding to some of the ingredients and was flushed with increased circulation. I'm not referring to a negative reaction/burn/itchiness; it felt wonderful. My dermatologist said this type of increased blood flow is great for skin because it means that more oxygenated blood and nutrients are reaching the skin. I also love that it rinses off easily and smoothly with no residue.

    Cetaphil or The Face Wash: th winner is…

    I used Cetaphil (sensitive skin) since few months… and my skin was dry. Even if I rinse thoroughly. So, I tried The Face Wash and this soap is gentle, and it leaves no residue on my skin, no more pulling. I scanned the list of ingredients in my Protégez-vous decodeur app, and the score is 10/10. All ingredients used in this product is excellent. So, do not hesitate to try.
