Cetaphil® Oily Skin Cleanser provides effective cleansing for oily, combination or blemished skin. Its gentle foaming action removes oil, dirt, skin debris and makeup without leaving your skin dry and, importantly, without the tightness that results from soap-based cleansers. That’s because it is formulated to remove oil without affecting the skin barrier. (Skin acts as a barrier, keeping moisture in so it is important that a cleanser works without compromising the skin barrier.) Cetaphil® Oily Skin Cleanser does not clog pores and can be used in conjunction with acne medication.
Higher than normal levels of sebum production is the reason why skin appears oily. Used twice daily for two weeks on people with moderately oily skin, Cetaphil® Oily Skin Cleanser reduced sebum levels by up to 60% without over drying the skin.
