How to use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

What is Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser?

Our Gentle Skin Cleanser is a global best-selling and dermatologist recommended skin cleanser that can be used on the face and body. It is dermatologically and clinically tested to be suitable for use on dry and very sensitive skin, also including skin that may be eczema-prone or rosacea-prone. It works by gently cleansing your skin without stripping its moisture, removing make-up, dirt and excess oils and leaving your skin feeling clean, soft and hydrated.

This creamy and silky texture, liquid gel cleanser is a non-foaming, soap and fragrance-free, hypoallergenic formulation with a micellar action that can help you to protect and care for your sensitive skin. It is skin pH friendly and helps to maintain the strength and health of the outer layer of your skin, known as the skin barrier, whilst effectively cleansing away any impurities. This cleanser is also non-comedogenic, meaning you don’t have to worry about it clogging pores.


How it is recommended to be used?

Our Gentle Skin Cleanser can be used for both morning and evening facial cleansing as part of a regular skincare regime. It is suitable for use around the eyes and can be used on the body skin too.

It can be used in two ways:

  1. It can be used with water, like a face-wash, and rinsed off after massaging over the face.
  2. It can be used without water, as a wipe-off cleanser, like a cleansing milk or lotion. Apply liberally directly to dry skin, massaged in to melt away makeup, daily oils and grime, and them wiped off with a soft, clean pad or cloth.

Please note the product must always be rinsed off if you are using our Gentle Skin Cleanser on nappy areas in children under 3 years of age.


Does Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser actually work?

Sometimes you may wonder if skincare products recommended by experts and influencers are really worth the hype? In 2018, over 80% of 810 people with dry or sensitive skin, who tried a mystery cleanser for two weeks in a home tester study, agreed that they felt their skin had improved. That cleanser was revealed to be Cetaphil Gentle skin cleanser. Watch the video here of when Cetaphil was revealed to the home testers.


What other Cetaphil products can I pair with it?

It is recommended to moisturise your skin after cleansing to help protect your skin from moisture-loss over the day, and to help strengthen the skin barrier which protects skin from sources of external irritation. Even oily skin can benefit from moisturising after cleansing- check that moisturisers are non-comedogenic (doesn’t contribute to blocked pores). We have a range of different moisturisers to choose from that can help all skin types to look and feel their best.

You can pair the Gentle Skin Cleanser with any of our Cetaphil Face or body moisturising creams and lotions, which are all non-comedogenic.
