CeraVe Cream to Foam Cleanser
PromiseWhat does the product description say?
This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (behentrimonium methosulfate, carbomer, cetearyl alcohol, cholesterol, coco-betaine, coco-glucoside, coconut acid, glyceryl oleate, glyceryl stearate, glycol distearate, peg-100 stearate, peg-150 pentaerythrityl tetrastearate, peg-30 dipolyhydroxystearate, peg-6 caprylic/capric glycerides, polysorbate 60, ppg-5-ceteth-20, sodium cocoyl isethionate, sodium lauroyl lactylate, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, sorbitan isostearate, trideceth-6, xanthan gum) and should be able to cleanse the skin gently. Still keep in mind that any cleansing can disrupt the skin barrier, and most people do not need to cleanse their skin more than once per day.
Even though this formulation is mild, the following cleansing agents could trigger an irritation or allergy for some people: coco-betaine, coco-glucoside, glyceryl oleate, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate
This product can help exfoliate the skin. In other words, it helps break down the bonds between dead cells on the surface of the skin and speed up the skin turnover. Skin often appears softer and brighter after exfoliation, but overdoing it can result in disrupted skin barrier. The following ingredient is doing the exfoliating job in this product: hydroxyethyl urea.
