I really don't see why people act like this is so strange...people try everything on their faces...aspirin, milk of magnesia, clay, egg whites etc...you name it, I think people with acne have tried it. Anyone that uses Cetaphil cleanser should appreciate this...I mean Cetaphil feels about like using conditioner to cleanse. I mean really, how could it hurt? AND C.H.E. is the best darn hair conditioner I have ever used! We use it all over our heads anyway so what could it hurt to try it. I would surely have to be safer than taking all the drugs for acnes that everyone takes these days! BTW, CHE is one of the few conditioners that doesn't cause be to get sores on my scalp!
