The ultimate goal of skin cleansing is to thoroughly remove makeup, dirt, bacteria, pollution, excess oil and dead skin. An ideal cleanser does this without disrupting the skin’s natural protective moisture barrier. This foaming cleanser not only washes away oil, dirt and impurities, but it leaves your skin feeling smooth and hydrated. This is mostly because of an ingredient called Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin b5) that binds moisture to the surface of the skin. SkinMedica® cleansers are detergent free, and contain hydrating emollients, botanical extracts and soothing agents to cleanse the skin without dehydration.
