Due to the rapid development of urban cities in the recent decades the level of pollution in the air has increased exponentially, demanding the development of new variants of personal care products. Face being most exposed part of the body, comes in contact with pollution very easily making it difficult to maintain a healthy, bright and clear skin. The facial skin is thinner and more fragile as compared to the rest of the body. A cleansing product specially formulated for face should be used in order to retain the moisture and pH balance of skin. Activated charcoal has properties of deep cleaning and adsorbing impurities. This makes it a favourable ingredient for skin care products. Green tea is flooded with powerful antioxidants for treating acne & scars and also helps in anti-aging. This work aims at the preparation of two face washes. The first is prepared using activated charcoal and green tea extract and the second, without using activated charcoal and green tea extracts. The two face washes are then compared to determine their usability. The aim is to prepare a face wash to combat all the skin issues & to achieve a cleansed, moisturised & glowing face by using ingredients which benefit every skin type.
