The EltaMD Facial Cleanser uses a light foaming action to gently loosen and thoroughly remove makeup, excess oils and environmental pollutants from the skin. This product can be used to prepare the skin prior to other cosmetic treatments. The cleanser guards against moisture loss by binding moisture to the keratin in skin cells, keeping the skin cells plump and supple. This product is soap-free, oil-free and does not use AHA's or glycolic acids, which can irritate the skin. It is ideal for all skin types, from adolescents with oily skin to adults with drier skin conditions.
