Cetaphil has launched 2 new products that are targeted at oily or acne-prone skin. The products are called, take a breath; Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Moisturiser SPF 30 and Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash.
The Oil Control Moisturizer is promoted as a lightweight 3-in-1 moisturizer for acne-prone skin. It is said to provide broad spectrum sun protection, control shine without over-drying. The SPF 30 protection is provided via the combination of 3 chemical sunscreens – avobenzone, octisalate and octocyrlene.
The Oil Control Foam Wash is promoted as being able to remove excess oil and impurities and contribute to soothing acne treatment effects like dryness and irritation.
Suitable for Rosacea?
It will be interesting to see how rosacea sufferers compare the Oil Control Foam to the popular Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.
I really like the combination of the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser and Skin Moisturizing Lotion. Being a typical male I barely used any skincare products years ago. Now I have a simple but I think quite effective regime based on Cetaphil and Tinted ZincO.
If you have very oily skin then it might be worth trying these 2 new products and see if they might fit into your regime.
Do be aware though, that the moisturizer uses chemical sunscreens to give you SPF30. This might be an issue for extra sensitive skin.
The Ever Expanding Cetaphil Range
Cetaphil is now also making 2 products that are targeted at extra dry skin and may be suitable for rosacea sufferers who struggle with very dry sky skin – see Cetaphil RestoraDERM for comments.
You can see Galderma is trying to build on the success of the Cetaphil brand for problem skin. So far I think they are doing pretty well. offering a few choices for rosacea sufferers.
