dr.dermal’s Clarifying Cleanser is perfect for combination or problem skin, or skin prone to frequent breakouts. Formulated with salicylic acid to decongest blocked pores and relieve inflammation, and glycolic acid to improve skin renewal it is effective and yet gentle. This cleanser contains naturally derived surfactants that will not strip the skin or damage the barrier.
This cleanser contains salicylic acid which is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) – this oil soluble acid penetrates the pore and dissolves the sebum blockages that give rise to acne. The natural surfactant is derived from coconuts making it sustainable and far more gentle on the skin than commonly used industrial surfactants like SLS / SLES.
With 10% Lactic Acid and 2.5% Glycolic Acid it is also an effective anti aging exfoliating cleanser revealing smoother and more radiant skin.
Apply a small amount to damp skin and lather, taking care to avoid the sensitive eye area. Rinse off with warm water.
