“Gentle skin cleansers are crucial for dry to extra dry skin to help protect the skin barrier. When the top layer of the skin has all of the oil removed, it will feel rough and can potentially get irritated. An oil-based cleanser helps avoid this risk by gently cleansing while also preserving the natural skin oils,” explains Angela J. Lamb, MD, Board Certified, Associate Professor of Dermatology.
About Lipikar AP+ Cleansing Oil
La Roche-Posay’s new Lipikar AP+ Gentle Foaming Cleansing Oil is a non-stripping body and face cleanser that safely and gently lifts dirt from the skin while providing intense 24-hour hydration starting in the shower.
Formulated with La Roche-Posay’s proprietary Prebiotic Thermal Spring Water, Glycerin, Shea Butter, Niacinamide, and Aqua Posae Filiformis, this soothing cleanser instantly moisturizes skin while protecting it from the drying effects of water and restoring the skin barrier. While many moisturizing cleansers come with the trade-off of a lack of a sensorial bathing experience, Lipikar AP+ Gentle Foaming Cleansing Oil transforms from a rich oil to a comforting lather as users wash.
La Roche-Posay’s Lipikar AP+ Gentle Foaming Cleansing Oil is dermatologist tested, suitable for patients undergoing chemotherapy and tested on babies two weeks and older. After a thorough review of its ingredients and its safety and efficacy studies, Lipikar AP+ Gentle Foaming Cleansing Oil also received the National Eczema Association’s seal of acceptance. It is allergy tested, fragrance-free, paraben-free, non-comedogenic, and safe for sensitive skin.
