7 Factors to Know Before Selecting the Best Face Wash for Women


Women have a softer skin texture as compared to men. They often go to a supermarket and quickly get busy looking for those very few skincare products that they think would suit their skin perfectly. This is often a result of their past hit-and-trial endeavors with several skincare products. If you too are looking to gift a skincare product to your wife, we suggest you take the tried and tested way for them- starting with the best face wash for women could be a good place to start. 

You should look for a few tell-tale signs before buying (or even shortlisting) the best available face wash meant for women. It would thus mean that you should know what her skin type is, what skincare issues she is experiencing, and what allergies (if any) does she have. It would be important to select a skincare product based on these three criteria because anything averse to her skin type or texture could cause more harm than good.

Selecting the best face wash for women: 7 factors you should know 

A woman’s skin is a neat reflection of her daily routine (read: struggles), she wakes up early in the morning, makes breakfast, prepares everyone for school or work, and then sets the home right. These tasks are often easier said than done and you would find a similar pattern, no matter which part of the world you opt for. 

The situation is more challenging for working women because they also have to go out in the blazing sun, chilly winds, or torrid rains to set up their schedule. This means the environmental factors also affect the skin’s texture, in addition to the above household responsibilities. All these factors also cause fatigue and stress, and it shows up on their facial skin too.

It is thus important to shortlist the best face wash for women based on some critical factors. They are as follows: 

  • Know her skin type and texture

It is important to figure out her skin type and texture before you even shortlist a face wash. You may note that there are specialized face washes for oily, dry, normal, or combination skin.

  • Opt for sulfate-free and toxin-free skincare product

Nothing would hurt her skin more than a face wash that contains harmful chemicals like SLS, parabens, and mineral oils. It is best to avoid any skincare product that contains these toxins.

  • It should have a balanced pH

The human skin has a balanced pH value of about 5.3 to 5.8. It thus makes sense to opt for the best face washes that do not alter this value. 

  • Check if it is certified by a renowned agency

Checking for valid certifications offered by Made Safe, FDA, PETA, and Dubai Municipality is advisable in the UAE. 

  • It should have a mild but not loud fragrance

The face wash you choose should have a mild and gentle fragrance. It should not be too loud because it might signify the presence of harmful chemicals.

  • It should be consistent with other skincare products

A face wash is also used with face cleanser, scrub, toner, and moisturizer. It should thus not have any ingredient that conflicts with any of them.

  • It should be gentle on her skin

A face wash should be gentle on the skin. It should not cause any rashes, inflammation, or soreness after use. It should also not react negatively with any other skincare product applied afterward.

Which face wash should you go for?
