The texture and format of the product are different. The Body Wash will more efficiently cover a larger surface area. While our foaming cleanser is multi-use, those using it on both their face and body found that they moved through the foaming cleanser quickly. The Body Wash ends up being more effective in use and cost for regular use on the body. But if you are using the foaming cleanser all over your body and it works great for you - stick with it! Personal care is personal and we know preferences differ for everyone.
