cetaphil ingredients

Hey,

Someone recently posted something about sodium lauryl sulphate being one of the ingredients in cetaphil. I just read an article about how sodium laureth sulphate and sodium lauryl sulphate are used in industrial detergents to reduce the surface tension of liquids (making them foam) to allow them to penetrate solids more easily. Both products strip oil from the skin and penetrate the skin very easily.

So, does it matter that this is one of the ingredients in cetaphil? It says on the bottle that it won't ``strip'' the skin of needed oils, but that's exactly what SLS is designed to do!

Having used cetaphil for about a week (at freeatlast's suggestion), I notice that my skin is very dry afterwards....with or without the water....

Re: cetaphil ingredients

nope. i also know about sls and i am aware that its an ingredient in cetaphil. i have researched it and found out that its only in 1% strength. its not enough to do any harm what-so-ever. dont worry about it.

Re: cetaphil ingredients

Unfortunately, you won't find a product that doesn't have at least a trace amount of a "comedogenic" ingredient. You have to look at the list of ingredients as a whole to determine if the end result is a comedogenic substance. In Cetaphil's case, it is non-comedogenic. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"><p>[This message has been edited by freeatlast (edited 04-11-2001).]

Re: cetaphil ingredients

Cetaphil makes skin feel so so so soft. Who agrees? I only use it as a prep for the acne wash.
