Sometimes you just want the refreshing feel of a foaming wash. Meant for everyday use, or to sub in when you need to feel extra clean, our gel wash lifts away impurities without over-cleansing the skin. Loaded with probiotics, fatty acids, and vitamins to feed the skin and keep it from drying out, we eliminated harsh soaps and suds, fragrance, and drying alcohols so your skin feels soft, not squeaky.

How to HoliWash: Massage on damp skin in slow circular motions. Take your time, it’s sinking in. Rinse and pat dry. Use whenever skin feels problematic – or you’re seeking a moment of clarity.
Warning: External use only. Avoid contact with eyes.
Pore Confession: Free radicals are everywhere.
Probacillus Revive: These isolates of Lactobacillus bulgarius speed skin repair by enhancing cellular renewal, while also increasing collagen production to improve texture. The growth bacteria is supplemented with prebiotics, which allows the bacteria to thrive. This speeds repair, while maximizes collagen synthesis to improve skin tone and elasticity.
Lactobacillus: A probiotic to help arm your skin with natural defenses against pollution, acne-causing bacteria, and allergens.
Saccharomyces/Xylinum/Black Tea Ferment (Kombucha): It enhances skin’s smoothness and brightness by not disturbing the skin’s natural renewal process.
Grape seed oil: Rich in essential fatty acids (palmitic, stearic and linoleic), beta-carotene and Vitamins D, C, E, this carrier oil moisturizes the skin by balancing both dry and oily patches. It can penetrate blocked pores and cleanse breakouts.
Broccoli seed oil: Rich in arachidonic acid (Omega-6), erucic acid (Omega-9), Vitamin A (a natural exfoliator), C (a powerful antioxidant), it plays a vital role in cell regeneration. It deeply penetrates for lasting hydration, yet is light enough for all skin types
Linseed/flaxseed oil: The high in Omega-3 content of the oil is anti-inflammatory, which can quell breakouts and irritated, dry skin. The oil seals in moisture, keeping skin hydrated and healthy, which can firm up skin.
Camellia seed oil: This rich source of Palmistic, Omega-6 Linoleic fatty acids, Omega-9 Oleic fatty acids, and numerous polyphenol antioxidants has remarkable transdermal carrier abilities; it absorbs quickly, helps skin retain moisture and permeates deep into lower layers of skin, promoting cell growth.
Sea buckthorn oil: Naturally present omega-7 fatty acid and vitamin E balance hydration.
Apple cider vinegar: Mildly astringent to remove buildup and impurities from the skin.

FULL INGREDIENT LIST:
Like many brands, our formulas are held to E.U. standards, making us confident in their safety, but safety isn’t our only goal. An ingredient can be harmless but that doesn’t make it the best one for the task. There are lots of technically safe ingredients that are filler, meaning they’re not bad per se, but they don’t really do anything for you either, other than take up space in a formula that a better-performing ingredient could occupy. Every single ingredient in our formulas has a function and purpose, selected for having the most beneficial role in our skin’s health.
Below is a list of the unsafe and unsavory ingredients that don’t make the HoliFrog grade. You won’t find any of these offenders in our products: Acrylates, Alcohol (SD alcohol, ethanol, denatured, isopropyl, methanol or ethyl alcohol), Aluminum compounds, Benzalkonium Chloride, BPA, Butoxyethanol, Chemical Screens, Coal Tar Dyes, DEA, Detergent, Dyes, EDTA, Essential Oils, Ethoxylated ingredients, Formaldehyde, Fragrance, Heavy metal, Hydroquinone, MEA, Mercury + mercury compounds, Methylisothiazolinone, Mineral Oil, Palm oil, Parabens, PEGs, Phthalates, Polysorbate, Propylene Glycol, Recorcinol, Silicones, SLES, SLS, TEA, Triclosan
The HoliWash Cycle
We’ve come a long way since “lather, rinse, repeat.” Washing your face isn’t rocket science, but you can mess it up if you don’t let your cleanser work the way it’s supposed to. There’s a proper time and place for it and that’s one-to-two minutes and at the sink. (FYI, in-shower face-washers, washing your face in the shower usually runs most of the cleanser off your face quicker than it needs to work properly.)
We can’t speak for all facial cleansers, but HoliFrog washes contain a mild range of gentle surfactants to cleanse skin without over-stripping your moisture barrier (you’re welcome). Tashmoo Water Lily Nourishing Milky Wash contains the least with 3%, Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash has 3.4%, Kissimmee Vitamin F Therapy Balmy Wash has 5%, and Superior Omega Nutritive Gel Wash contains the most, with 8%. They’re all formulated at an optimal pH balance, counterbalancing surfactants and exfoliants with rich, nourishing oils to keep your skin in check. Each wash contains a unique set of active ingredients geared towards giving your skin exactly what it needs when you need it. All you have to do is give them the time to get to work.
The 1-Minute AM Wash:
Whether you’re an early bird or a sleepy bird, washing your face every morning is important. Your morning cleanse preps your skin so you can layer up your skincare products and makeup for the day. A full 60 seconds may feel like an excessive amount of time to push suds around your face, but that gives the formula’s actives a proper amount of time to get intimate with those pores. Think of it like a face wash sandwich: 30 seconds to dislodge any dirt and emulsify sebum, 30 seconds for the formula to penetrate pores, and in between you’ve got a very nice mini facial massage in the morning. Your skin deserves it.
The 2-Minute PM Wash:
After your day is done and before your head hits the pillow, pencil in washing your face. This is the big wash because now there are greater obstacles in the form of dirt, sweat, oil, sunscreen, makeup, environmental pollutants, and anything else that may have met your face throughout the day to remove. You’re tired, you just want to go to bed — but you also want nice skin and nothing sabotages a good skincare routine like piling products on top of pre-clogged pores. This is where [double-cleansing] comes in. Take one minute with a hardworking yet gentle oil-based wash to emulsify and whisk off surface grime and makeup, so you can effectively remove all aforementioned offenders. For the encore, massage a follow-up wash around your face for another minute to oust any clingy residue as well as nourish your skin with its own formula’s actives. Your pores can sleep easier at night, knowing that all of yesterday’s gunk is out of them.
