A Guide to Mild Cleansers for Oily Skin

Mild cleansers can be effective in removing excess oil from the skin for those that have acne. There are a variety of gentle skin cleansers that are available for acne treatment, or for treating generally irritated or aggravated skin. Oil-free and non-comedogenic products are recommended for those with oily skin, and there are many varieties of available acne cleansers that are advised for daily skin care.

As a cautionary note, over-cleansing can cause skin irritation, and may aggravate your skin condition. As with all skin care products, it is important that these products be used exactly as instructed. Used judiciously, mild cleansers will be an important skin care product for maintaining a healthy skin free of excess oil.

There are three main cleanser groups:

  1. Soaps
  2. Water-soluble cleansers (the most gentle)
  3. Cold creams and makeup removers

We recommend the use of water-soluble cleansers, or soap substitutes as they are gentle on the skin, non-greasy, unscented, and generally contain few ingredients which can irritate the skin. They serve to remove cosmetics as well as excess oil that are left on the skin pores.

Example products include the following:

  • Aquanil®
  • Cetaphil® cleanser
  • Dormer® cleanser
  • Dove®, by Unilever
  • Spectro Derm™
  • Spectro Jel™
  • Seaquanil®
