Description

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Cleansing Gel is a foaming wash designed for combination or oily skin. It can be used either as a facial cleanser or as an all-over body wash.

For people with oily, acne-prone skin, it is important to use a cleanser that does not aggravate the condition or leave the skin feeling dry, but instead helps to address the cause of the problem.

Excess sebum can lead to clogged pores and spot formation. This water-soluble gel foams and cleanses, eliminating excess sebum and skin impurities without drying out the skin, leaving it feeling cleaner and fresher. It is well tolerated and suitable for sensitive skin.

As well as soothing La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, it contains Zinc PCA, which helps to neutralise sebum production.

This cleanser is hypoallergenic and free of parabens and soap, unlike many commonly used cleansers.

Directions

If using on the face, first wet your hands and work a small amount of the gel into a lather. Then massage it into the face with gentle motions of the hand. Afterwards, rinse well with warm water and pat gently dry.

Research & Evidence

For people with Acne

HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find any clinical data on the use of La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Cleansing Gel in people with acne. This product contains both sodium laureth sulfate and perfume, both of which can irritate sensitive skin (1, 2). Therefore, it is important to thoroughly rinse off the cleanser after use.
