Cetaphil PRO Oil Control Foam Face Wash: Dermatocare Reviews




Cetaphil PRO Oil Control Foam Face Wash is worth trying for oily to combination skin types prone to acne and sensitivity because of its innovative composition.

You can switch to this face wash if your skin is getting dry because of use of salicylic acid or retinoids. Zinc Gluconate and Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate soothe your skin. While hydrating glycerine base might help in retaining your skin barrier. However, it is not strong enough for very oily skin.

Will it work?

Cetaphil Dermacontrol Foam Wash helps in reducing both oiliness and acne because it has a new surfactant Zinc coceth sulfate that can remove excess oils from your skin and kill the acne causing bacteria. It also has Zinc gluconate that further adds to acne control. 

For which skin type?

Cetaphil PRO Oil Control Foam Face Was is suitable for oily to combination skin types that are prone to acne. Besides oil control, you can expect a reduction in acne-causing bacteria. It might be over drying for the dry skin types with acne, in such cases, you can apply an extra layer of non-comedogenic moisturiser.

Is it safe?

Yes, it is free from major harmful chemicals.

Will it irritate sensitive skin?

It is unlikely to irritate sensitive skin though chances of reaction can never be ruled out altogether. Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate in this face wash further reduces the chances of reaction in sensitive skin owing to its anti-inflammatory benefits.
