As we age, we all need to develop good skincare regimens. However, each person needs different products, depending on what their skin issues are. For example, NeoStrata Cleanser is a product that is designed to keep the skin of the fast hydrated and moist. So, it may be a good option for those suffering from dry skin.
Many soaps dry out the skin, especially the sensitive skin on the face. NeoStrata Cleanser is a soap-free facial cleanser. It is also hypoallergenic and fragrance-free. Therefore, it won't dry out the skin in the same way that soaps do.
The most important active ingredient in NeoStrata Cleanser is gluconolactone. Gluconolactone is a polyhydroxy acid, or PHA. PHAs have been shown in studies to have numerous skincare benefits. They also don't tend to be as harsh on the skin or as likely to cause irritation as their alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) cousins.
The sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can be very damaging to the skin over time. In fact, those rays can encourage the formation of free radicals, which destroy or damage skin cells. The gluconolactone in NeoStrata Cleanser can help to block those free radicals.
In addition to that, the NeoStrata Cleanser gluconolactone content, which is about 4%, also functions as a metal chelator, which means that it traps excessive metals that might otherwise cause the skin to become rough or discolored.
NeoStrata Cleaners is also composed of several other ingredients. They are all combined to make a gentle cleanser that is capable of exfoliating the skin (removing dead skin and debris), while not irritating it at all. Some of those ingredients are:
ñ Propylene Glycol
ñ PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate
ñ Cocamidopropyl Betaine
ñ Sodium Laureth Sulfate
ñ Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate
ñ Sodium Chloride
NeoStrata Cleanser is meant to be used twice daily on an ongoing basis. It should be applied when the skin is moist and massaged into the skin gently. Water should be used to rinse off any excess.
Results have shown that NeoStrata Cleanser typically works well for any skin type. It is also often used in cases where people have undergone certain procedures, such as chemical peels. It can often reduce redness, dry skin, and irritation associated with those procedures.
If you are considering using NeoStrata Cleanser, you may want to apply it to a small area before cleansing your entire face with it. You may also find it useful to talk to your doctor or dermatologist and see if they tell you to use it more or less than twice daily, since each person's skin is different.
