What is Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser?

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is a gentle, soap-free cleanser that’s perfect for dry or sensitive skin. It can be used on your face or your body and can even be used to remove your makeup, perfect for those who find other makeup removers irritate their skin. You can use this product with or without water, perfect to take with you on the go so you can keep your skin clean and clear wherever you are in the world. If you’re looking for a cleanser that will be kind to your skin and fit easily into your daily skincare routine, Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser could be the product for you.


Why do I have dry skin?

There are lots of reasons why you may have dry skin, from dry skin conditions to the occasional bit of dry skin caused by your environment. You may experience dry skin after spending time in hot, cold, or dry environments, or rooms that are heated or air-conditioned. Other common causes of dry skin include conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis, which cause flare-ups of dry skin, often accompanied by other symptoms like itching and redness. Flare-ups of these dry skin conditions can often be caused by coming into contact with harsh soaps or detergents, which irritate your sensitive skin.


How will Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser care for my sensitive skin?

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser contains no fragrances or soaps, which can both irritate sensitive skin and cause flare-ups in dry skin conditions like eczema. By replacing your regular cleaners this product helps to protect your skin from those common irritants. The formula is also non-comedogenic, which means it won’t block your pores, helping to keep your skin clean and clear, while avoiding harsh soaps or fragrances.


How to use this cleanser

You can use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser with or without water, depending on your needs:

  • To use without water: Apply the cleanser to your skin and massage gently. Wipe away any excess with a soft, clean tissue or cotton wool
  • To use with water: Apply the cleanser to your skin and massage gently. Rinse thoroughly and gently pat your skin dry with a soft, clean towel.

Do not use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser if you are allergic to any of the listed ingredients. If you use this product on the nappy area of children under the age of 3, you must rinse it off. For external use only, avoid contact with eyes or other sensitive areas. If you experience any irritation while using this product, stop use.
