When choosing a cleanser, I wanted something as easy as soap and water without the dryness. Sodium lauryl sulfate is a chemical that strips the skin of its natural ph mantle, found in cleansers and shampoos which can result in dry patches (harsh cleansing) and acne (from over-stimulation).
My recommendation is Kosmea! This cleanser is not only soft and soothing, it nourishes without stripping and leaving a nasty residue.
On an extra note, Kosmea skin care is free from artificial colors, artificial fragrances, mineral oils, petrochemicals, sodium lauryl sulfate and animal ingredients. No animal testing…YEAH!
