Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser contains gentle but effective cleansers along with mild moisturisers and refatting agents to gently and thoroughly cleanse skin without leaving it harsh or dry.
It removes oil, dirt, skin debris and make-up with a mild, lathering action, leaving the skin clean and oil-free without the the tightness and dryness that sometimes follows the cleansing of oily skin.
The Problem with Oily Skin
While sebum is produced by our skin to help keep the skin soft, supple and healthy, some people's skin produces markedly more natural sebum than others. This can result in skin taking on an oily feel and appearance.
The overproduction of sebum results from an increased number and sometimes size of sebaceous glands. Sebum can contribute to the development of pimples when it combines with old skin cells to block pores.
Reduction of Sebum Levels up to 60%
Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser works! In people with moderately oily skin, Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser, used twice daily for two weeks was shown to reduce sebum levels by up to 60%. It did this without producing any significant irritation.
Cleanses Without Drying
Skin acts a barrier, keeping moisture in. It is important that cleansers work without compromising the skin barrier function. The cleansers should be effective, but not so effective that the skin is left harsh, dry and potentially raw and cracking.
Used twice daily for two weeks by acne patients, Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser was shown to maintain the barrier function of the skin; it cleansed without increasing water loss.
A Great Addition to Acne Therapy
As mentioned previously, people with acne have increased sebum levels. A part of acne therapy is to reduce this oil on the skin by regular and effective washing, without leaving the skin tight and dry.
Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser works well for patients with acne. It does not clog pores (non-comedogenic).
It leaves skin clean and soft, ready for other topical acne preparations.
