While it is very important to keep skin properly cleansed, particularly when it is oily or prone to developing acne, a careful balance has to be reached. Being too aggressive with cleansing can strip away the natural oils that are necessary to keep the skin moisturized and supple. DCL Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories Cleansers Products are able to find a balance between keeping skin cleansed and prevent damage to the delicate natural oil balance that needs to be maintained.
The key to effective but safe cleansers is in the method used to lift away impurities, without disturbing the acid mantle on the skin’s surface created by natural oils. DCL Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories Cleansers Products are formulated with ingredients that use natural processes that do not act as drying detergents. Instead, the excess oils, old dead skin cells, dirt, contaminants deposited by the environment – in short, everything that contributes to creating conditions that can lead to skin problems, including acne breakouts – are gently cleansed, the pores purified and the skin stimulated to revive and renew itself. The formulas of DCL Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories Cleansers Products work in harmony with the skin.

Additional DCL Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories Products Information
Achieving the balance between effective cleansing and stripping away the skin’s protective acid mantle, DCL Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories Cleansers Products use clinically proved ingredients to achieve their results. It is important to keep the pores clear and maintain a healthy skin cell turnover in order to allow the skin to function properly, but only without disturbing the balance of the necessary natural oils.
During acne breakouts, or between bouts, DCL B Prox 10 Wash helps to treat oily skin by removing excess oils, cleaning pores and promoting healthy skin cell turnover. A 10% concentration of benzoyl peroxide acts as a mild peeling agent, helping to exfoliate the skin and encourage skin cell turnover. It also clears out pores and reduces bacterial count, conditions under which acne breakouts are most likely to occur. The formula also contains botanical extracts to relieve itching and provide antibacterial benefits.
Dry, damaged and delicate skin can be treated with DCL Non-Drying Cleansing Lotion. The sodium lauryl sulfate in the formula, made from coconut and palm oils, acts as an anionic surfactant, lifting off oil and dirt with a detergent-like efficiency, but without drying effects. Glycol helps to soften and moisten the skin.
Normal to oily skin can benefit from DCL Wash-Off Cleansing Lotion, which also uses sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium myreth sulfate to gently lift off and remove contaminants. It helps to gently dissolve oil and waxy debris that clog the pores and cover the skin, leaving the surface clean and refreshed, but without drying out the skin.
