Recent research has shown that the 8.3 million Australians affected by compromised skin, more than 2 million have eczema and almost 4 million suffer from some degree of acne. The remainder suffer from seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, nappy rash and thrush. (1)
One of the leading brands of therapeutic skincare products used in the treatment of many of thes conditions is Galderma's Cetaphil product range.
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
A non-soap cleanser that softens the skin as it gently cleanses. While cleansing the skin, Cetaphil leaves the skin's natural protective oils intact. It was originally developed by dermatologists for patients, whose skin was so sensitive, they could not even use water without a reaction.
Cetaphil Moisturising Cream and Moisturising Lotion
Double the moisture of the skin in just four days, with moisture that lasts. Cetaphil moisturisers do this as a result of a unique combination of quality humectants, emollients and occlusives. Cetaphil moisturisers are lanolin and fragrance free so they are pleasant to use and suitable for sensitive skin.Dermatolgists
Research shows that moret han 99% of Australian dermatologists recommend patients with compromised skin use a non-soap cleanser. (2)
Many dermatologists go one step further and suggest that the regular use of gentle non-soap products such as Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and Cetaphil Moisturisers should form a basis of any skincare regimen, even for people without problem skin.
