Sebamed represents one of the leading brands for medicinal skin care with a pH value 5.5 of healthy skin. All products of the sebamed range contain high-quality active ingredients which cleanse and nourish the skin without destroying the natural acid protection mantle. Targeting skin that is sensitive and problematic their aim to help relieve, restore and maintain healthy skin.
Their products are developed in co-operation with dermatologists and pharmacists to create a brand with products that support the skin’s own protective functions and health are added. Active ingredients of high quality and purity are carefully chosen and have to pass dermatological and clinical safety and efficacy testing before being introduced into the market. Sebamed products are fragrance and colour free.
Already familiar with this brand, I have used couple of products from their range on myself and my son when he was a baby so when I was given the opportunity to sample some of their range I selected some products from the Clear Face range.
Antibacterial Cleansing Foam is an intensive, antibacterial and gentle skin cleanser with an anti-pimple effect. It does this by cleansing deep and gently into pores without stripping any natural oils due to it being soap and alkali free. Suitable for all skin types. It combats pimples, blackheads and skin impurities. If you have read my previous post about double cleansing, (you can read about it here) this is a perfect cleanser to use after an oil cleanser.
Cleansing Bar is from their Sensitive skincare range. This is an alternative to using the cleansing foam. It is soap and alkali free. It lathers up quite nicely and cleanses skin just as good as the Cleansing Foam. I think it's personally just a matter of personal preference.
Deep Cleansing Toner is perfect for the oily/combination t-zone. It contains Witch hazel to soothe irritated skin and has an astringent effect to contract the pores by removing excessive oil, sebum and dirt particles. It also contains cucumber extract and Hydrolysed Silk that provides moisture to protect the skin against dehydration, Panthenol to support the healing of acne lesions and Allantoin to smooth the skin and make it supple due to it's exfoliating properties.
Care Gel is a moisturising gel to combat against pimples, blackheads and blemishes. Key ingredients are Allantoin, Panthenol, hyaluronic acid to increase the moisturising binding capacity as well as Aloe barbadensis to soothe irritated skin.
Anti Pimple Gel is a on the spot pimple attacker. This gel works by relieving inflammation and drying out the pimple. I've used this a couple of times on the chin and found by the end of the day after applying several times, the redness and the intensity of the pimple pain is almost none existent.
Sebamed is suitable for all ages. Depending on your skin concerns, there is a range to suit. For more information on the brand visit their website here.
