    "Special Cleansing Gel Mini"
    From product name
    WIMJ summary

    This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (disodium lauroamphodiacetate, hexylene glycol, ppg-5-ceteth-20, quillaja saponaria bark extract, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium trideceth sulfate) 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: sodium laureth sulfate

    "Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel treats your skin to a soothing, rich lather as it gently loosens and removes excess oil, makeup, dead skin cells and all other surface debris."
    WIMJ summary

    This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.
