DermaRad Relief Gentle Foaming Cleanser has been carefully designed for use by cancer patients who need gentle skin care because their skin is under moisturized, dry, red and rough. Using common soaps or any cleanser that contains alkaline ingredients like sodium hydroxide, or that contain laureth or lauryl sulfates will cause more skin dryness and extensive loss of moisture. DermaRad Relief cleanser contains NO soap, NO lye (sodium hydroxide), and NO saponification products. Instead the cleanser contains 2 mild surfactants that gently clean the skin without drying . In addition, the cleanser is pH balanced to neutrality (7.0) which is closer to the skin’s own pH than typical soaps which can have an alkaline pH above 11. Finally, this cleanser has been formulated with glycerin and sodium PCA, which are gentle and effective humectants designed to moisturize the skin. The result is a cleanser which is effective in cleaning the skin but which is also “skin friendly” and extremely mild. And for skin that is sensitive or extremely dry, this cleanser dispenses as a rich foam, which can be spread gently around the skin with no rubbing and, therefore, with no discomfort.
