What is an ideal cleanser?

Mild liquid facial cleansers are the most effective and beneficial cleansers for sensitive and compromised skin. These cleansers have complex formulations with a combination of surfactants, moisturizers, binders and preservatives that will cause the fewest problems and offer the greatest benefits. Mild cleansers can be used effectively by people with all skin types.

The ultimate goal of skin cleansing is to gently remove sweat, dirt, bacteria, pollution, smoke, excess oil and dead skin cells. An ideal cleanser does this without irritating, damaging or disrupting the skin and the skinís natural protective moisture barrier. The best cleansers are non-irritating, are safe for sensitive skin and wonít clog pores or cause acne.

Examples of ideal mild cleansers:

  • Aveeno Clear Complexion
  • Cetaphil
  • Lipikar Syndet
  • pHisoderm
  • Seaquanil
  • Spectro Derm
