Oil-Free Acne Wash purports to be the #1 cleanser recommended by dermatologists for their patients with acne. If that’s true, then lots of dermatologists are swayed by advertising and not up to speed on skincare formulas.
A dermatologist should know better than to endorse a cleanser that contains the drying, irritating detergent cleansing agent sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate as a major ingredient, not to mention the fact that salicylic acid is far less effective for exfoliation, if at all, in a cleanser.
That’s because it’s rinsed off before it can begin to work. If you are hoping for this cleanser to provide exfoliating benefits, think again.
