RESTORADERM Eczema Calming Body Wash
Those with dry, itchy, eczema-prone skin, take note: RestoraDerm Eczema Calming Body Wash is a winner! This creamy, ultra-moisturizing body wash is exceptionally gentle and a pleasure to use. Thanks to a great formula that will leave skin softer and a lack of ingredients that can increase inflammation, this easily earns our highest, four-star rating.
The fragrance-free formula treats dry skin to smoothing emollients, including non-fragrant plant oils, while cleansing skin and leaving it soft and smooth. The amount of shea butter makes this slightly tricky to rinse, but you can always use it with a washcloth if desired. Cetaphil included niacinamide and vitamin E, but for the most part these good-for-skin ingredients will be rinsed down the drain.
No matter, though: RestoraDerm Eczema Calming Body Wash remains a top body wash choice for those struggling with dry skin. It is not recommended for acne-prone skin, as the formula is too rich and could potentially make body breakouts worse.
- Contains emollients like shea butter to help soften and soothe dry, parched skin.
- Contains some antioxidant ingredients.
Cetaphil RestoraDerm Eczema Calming Body Wash is formulated to soothe dry, itchy skin associated with eczema and atopic dermatitis. Using advanced technology, this creamy wash gently cleanses and rinses without irritation and holds skinnourishing oils in a gentle, soapfree cleanser.
This familiar, widely distributed skin-care collection is manufactured by Galderma, the same company that markets the prescription products Differin and MetroGel.Given the dermatology heritage of Galderma, it's surprising the Cetaphil line hasn't advanced beyond the basics. Yes, most of what's available is a safe bet for those with sensitive skin!
If you're in search of simplicity, this is a good line to consider. We should note that many of the formulas omit more complex anti-aging ingredients, but they can always be used alongside a serum or treatment of your choosing.
Strengths: Inexpensive; mostly fragrance-free products; affordable and widely available; offers complete ingredient lists on its website; the sunscreens offer sufficient UVA protection.
Weaknesses:A few formulas could be updated with more complex ingredients, but forgoing that there is a lot to like here.
