This cleanser has the makings of a very gentle option that could’ve been great for sensitive skin—if only it didn’t contain fragrant rose geranium oil. Listed by its Latin name of Pelargonium Graveolens, this fragrant oil contains a chemical constituent known as p-cymene. Along with its other volatile fragrance ingredients, this oil is a skin irritant (Sources: Natural Product Communications, September 2010, pages 1,395–1,400 and http://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/cgi-bin/sis/search/a?dbs+hsdb:@term+@DOCNO+5128). What a shame, as the price and overall formula for this cleanser would make it a good option for those with normal to oily skin.

Note: The U.S. name of this product is Moisturizing Facial Wash.
