DIY Make Your Own Simple Organic Facial Cleanser For Sensitive Skin

All you need is one ingredient!
Organic oats.

If you can't use oats, some other soothing face cleanser bases are organic coconut, almond, flax seed, chia seed (chia and flax have a gel-like consistency when wet rather than a creamy one), sunflower seed powder, sesame seed.  Nuts & seeds will need to be ground to a fine flour in a coffee grinder (a blender will not work).  You can use any of these alone as a base or mix any combination of them together.

You can add other organic ingredients depending on your skin type, here are just a few common ingredients which have topical benefits to the skin:
