Dermatologist developed, the Sebamed Adult Cleansing Bar is ultra-mild and compatible with the most sensitive of skins, gently cleansing deep into pores without causing dryness or irritation as regular soap can. With a moisturizing complex of vitamins, lecithin, and amino acids, it rinses away completely for naturally healthier, smoother skin. Every Sebamed product is meticulously formulated to a pH balance of exactly 5.5 - precisely the pH of healthy skin. This is essential in maintaining your skin's natural hydrolipid barrier against environmental stress. Any other pH level, such as found in soap may leave your skin open to break-down and deterioration.
