This soap-free formulation gently, yet effectively, cleanses and lightly exfoliates without drying or stripping the skin. Gluconolactone, a Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA), is non-irritating and suitable for all skin types. The cleanser prepares the skin to optimize the skincare regimen that follows, and repeated use helps make the skin appear smoother and younger. This product is particularly beneficial for patients who have sensitive skin, even those with rosacea. It is also appropriate for patients who have recently undergone an in-office procedure such as a chemical peel, microdermabrasion or a non-ablative laser treatment.
