We have broadly three types of skin; Oily, Dry and Combination. You can make one product and cater to all of these skin types. It really depends on the sort of ingredients that you are using. But you can definitely not add an ingredient which can make someone's skin extremely oily or dry, because it would ruin a dry or an oily skin. Therefore, you will have to opt for neutral ingredients and the method of application would differ according to the skin types. For instance, a person with an oily skin can add rosewater in your scrub and a person with dry skin can add milk or yogurt.
