Default Surfectant free soap free facial cleanser?

I am almost out of my PSF castile cleanser and have no idea what to replace it with. Pretty much every night I do the oil cleansing method but I like washing my face with a cleanser in the morning. I ordered the white cleanser without castor oil from Garden of Wisdom hoping it would be similar to PSF but it isn't.

Because of the ocm I think i need to stay away from surfectants and that pretty much eliminates any facial cleanser I find. Can anyone recommend something? Or are there any recipes for making my own with the correct PH? What about just diluting some castile soap with water?

I did OCM for a few years. Wanted something that was a little more. I have really sensitive, allergic, rosacea skin, so need to be really careful. This has a mild surfactant. I was leery about the witch hazel, but I liked her other products, so I tried this. I'm on my third or fourth bottle. It's been great.

Her rosacea products beat any prescription product I've used. And the Super Rich Moisturizer is great, too.

Do those Diana Yvonne cleansers last forever like PSF? The PSF left my skin feeling cleansed but not stripped do you find that these are the same?

RCW what do you think about this recipe for a facial cleanser?
  • 1/4 cup Dr. Bronnerís liquid castile soap
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp almond oil (jojoba oil would also work well)
  • 2 tsp aloe vera gel
  • 2 tsp glycerin
  • 8-12 drops essential oils

Try the cleanser from acne.org, it's very mild and works great to remove the grime without stripping your skin.
