Review of Cetaphil Cleanser

Overview

According to its website, Cetaphil is the most-recommended brand of cleanser and moisturizer by dermatologists and pediatricians. The cleanser was designed for dermatologists as a gentle cleanser for most skin types and can be used on the face, hands and body.

Description

According to Ceptaphil, the product has a "gentle, non-irritating formula" that is suitable for most types of skin without depriving the skin of its natural oils and emollients. It is non-comedogenic, which means it doesn't clog pores, and it doesn't leave an irritating residue, according to its Amazon product description.

Ingredients

The main ingredient in Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is water. Other ingredients include cetyl alcohol, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, stearyl alcohol, and the parabens methylparaben, propylparaben, and butylparaben. Cetyl alcohol bears no relation to isopropyl alchool; it is a lubricant and emulsifier and doesn't dry or irritate the skin.

Directions for Use

According to Amazon, Cetaphil cleanser can be used with or without water. Without water, it should be applied liberally, gently rubbed on the skin and removed with soft cloth. This will leave behind a "thin film" of the product, which will soften and moisten the skin. With water, Cetaphil should be applied to the skin, gently rubbed and then rinsed off. It can be used on the face, hands and the rest of the body.

Pricing and Where to Buy

As of Aug. 12, 2010, the price on Amazon for a 16-fluid-ounce bottle was $13.75. Cetaphil cleansers can be found in the skin-care aisle of retailers and also online.
