Syndet cleansers use synthetic surfactants (which bind oil to water) to remove dirt and oil from skin. They are the go-to cleansers for sensitive skin because they are pH balanced. However, not all syndets are created equal - and one must look closely at the ingredient list because the devil is in the details...again. They have the potential to also contain a host of ingredients that can be harsh or taunting to highly allergic sensitive skin.
Dr. Bailey Wants You to Know
The Vanicream TM product line does not contain these notoriously taunting allergens. I have read the ingredient list for you, and my sensitive skin patients have proven to us that Vanicream products are sensitive skin products to trust. Vanicream products are designed to be safe for ultra-sensitive skin. Like the other Vanicream products, Vanicream Cleansing Bar is formulated without dyes, fragrances, irritating chemicals, parabens, or formaldehyde. You get the best technology that science has to offer in a safe and gentle bar cleanser.
Cleaning your skin without irritation is a key step to healing dry, chapped skin and maintaining your skin health.
