Teen skincare and Cetaphil

A question parents often ask when they bring their teen in for a Teen Facial revolves around a very popular option in your local grocery store: Cetaphil.

Is Cetaphil good for my teen’s acne?

Cetaphil is a good option for teens that are experiencing oily to acne prone skin. As far as we can tell, the ingredients seem to have great benefits for those that have this particular skin type.

One Cetaphil cleanser option is their PRO DERMACONTROL® Oil Control foam wash. It comes in a foam pump format so you get an immediate lather. It is a gentle formula containing zinc which is great for reducing inflammation in the skin. According to the ingredient list, not only will it soothe and calm, it will also help absorb excess oil.

This option is great for your teens with combination to oily skin that tends to build up throughout the day. In addition, it claims to be soap and paraben-free, which is important to keep in mind when shopping for skincare products for your teen.

On the other hand, if your teen has irritated, blemish-prone skin, Cetaphil offers the Gentle Salicylic Acid cleanser. It is a cream-to-lather formula so your teen will need to add a little water to get the foam going. Cetaphil claims that it will help reduce pores, maintain a clean complexion, and smooth out rough texture, all of which is true because salicylic acid does have these properties. It absorbs into the clogged pore, helps unclog and loosens debris. It helps take down inflammation and lifts scarring as well.

Of the two, the Gentle Salicylic Acid cleanser would the stronger one so that one would be used by teens with active acne and blemishes on the skin. It may be too drying for teens with combination to oily skin.
