Home made detergent free cleanser - RCW maybe?

Since I can't seem to find a detergent free cleanser here in the Netherlands, I was wondering if somebody has a recipe for my dry skin (with occasional blemishes)

And is it okay to just jojoba oil straight on my skin as a moisturizer? Doesn't it have to be mixed with something else?

TIA!

I'm sorry you can't find anything where you are. I don't know of any homemade cleansers that meet the criteria of being non-detergent and pH neutral.

You can use straight jojoba oil. It sinks in and moisturizes better if you mix it with a little bit of hyaluronic acid (humescent).
Haha if you didn't explain that i think i would have bought that cleanser! Thank you so much.

I was looking again at the Dianna Yvonne website for the wheat germ cleanser and SA and they do ship to the Netherlands but it will cost me a total of $ 38,35. How long do these bottles last. I'm a poor student and if these bottles only last a month I will be devastated.

Okay, i will order them online then. It's really weird by the way that they ship to the Netherlands because a few weeks ago they didn't. Anyhow thank you for your advice, I can't wait to try them.

It'll probably take a while before I have the products but i believe it's worth the wait
