Benefits of making your own homemade facial cleanser are many, the best reason in my opinion is replacing chemicals found in commercial products with healthy ingredients. 

As stated on many pages of this site, your skin absorbs what you put on it, ending up in your bloodstream.   So many health issues from minor to cancer can be avoided by removing these toxic chemicals.

Other reasons are, you're able to experiment and make a cleanser for your skin type. 

You can save money and have the satisfaction of knowing you're nourishing your skin, not damaging it. 

If you're one that gives consideration to the environment, you'll also have the satisfaction of knowing you're not sending needless chemicals back into the environment.   Consider other chemicals you may be using, visit Homemade Cleaning Products.
