Natural cleansers are all the rage these days and anything that we use on our skin should in fact be natural, mild and non toxic. Cleansers for the skin are easy to make and easy to store.

Of course you will want to take into account your skin condition, any allergies you may have as well as whether your skin is dry or oily in nature prior to deciding which ones to make to best suit what you need.

There are four, listed below, that are natural in makeup and will serve the cleansing purpose very well.

Please bear in mind that anyone can develop an allergy at any time.

If your skin becomes reddened or breaks out in a rash, as with any other skin care product, natural or otherwise, discontinue the use of the product immediately.
