Effaclar Foaming Gel Cleanser is a foaming cleanser specially formulated for sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin. This gentle and effective acne face wash eliminates impurities, excess sebum and lifts away dirt. The Effaclar Foaming Gel Cleanser cleanser respects the skin’s PH balance. The gentle formula has a pH 5.5 – the average PH value of the skin’s surface, so there is no disruption to the skin’s natural balance. The two active ingredients in Effaclar Foaming Gel Cleanser cleanser are ideal for oily, acne-prone skin and work together to reduce sebum, oil, visible redness, and irritation. Thermal Spring Water– a pure, naturally occurring water rich in mineral trace elements, sourced from the La Roche-Posay region in the Vienne countryside in France. This soothing, anti-inflammatory, selenium rich water relieves irritation and speeds skin repair. Additionally, the high silicates in the thermal water softens, soothes and protects skin. Zinc PCA is a trace element with anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antifungal properties which helps to fight the bacteria that cause acne. Zinc PCA also reduces sebum production which reduces the cause of breakouts, pimples and blackheads without impairing the skin barrier.
