Is Cetaphil good for your skin?
You've probably heard of Cetaphil before — it's a popular, gentle skincare brand that's been around for over 70 years and is dermatologist recommended for those with sensitive skin. Not sure if it's right for you, though? Celebrity dermatologist and Chief Medical Officer at LaserAway, Dr. Will Kirby, is here to help.
Dr. Kirby categorizes Cetaphil as a non-foaming facial wash. Why? Because it's not really strong enough to remove dirt and grime from certain parts of your body, like your underarms or feet. But, Cetaphil does a really excellent job of gently cleansing and not over-stripping your natural oils. Because Cetaphil is so gentle, that's one of the reasons dermatologists love it so much, especially for the face. That being said, Cetaphil doesn't do a good job of removing makeup.
Is Cetaphil worth it? According to Dr. Kirby, it is. But it really depends on what you're looking for in a cleanser. If the gentle aspect is a priority for you, then Cetaphil is probably right for you. But if you're looking for something a little stronger that will remove makeup, you may need to consider other non-foaming cleansers, such as LaserAway Beauty's Come Clean Purifying Face Wash. It's a dermatologist-developed facial cleanser that removes even the most stubborn makeup without irritating skin, unlike Cetaphil. You don't necessarily have to use Cetaphil to maintain healthy, clean skin as a part of your skin fitness regimen.
