As we age, skin becomes thinner and may have fewer natural oils to stave off dryness. Gentle cleansing is essential. Mobility issues may mean that you or your caregiver needs to use a skin cleanser that is easy to apply and possibly one that doesn’t need rinsing. Depending on dexterity, you may be able to get more effective cleansing with a spray or foam, and having one product for shampooing and a body wash can streamline the whole process, too.
No-rinse skin cleansers offer certain advantages including quicker hygiene, less irritating residue and no need for water—water can worsen dryness because it washes away some of the skin’s natural lipids. If your skin is already dry, look for a moisturizing skin cleanser like Remedy® Phytoplex Hydrating Cleansing Foam, a no-rinse gentle formula that’s easy to apply and easy to remove with a wipe or washcloth. Enhanced with botanicals, it's pH balanced to protect skin's acid mantle.
Looking for a light cleanser for the bath or shower? Try low-sudsing gels and liquids that rinse easily. Soothe & Cool® Shampoo/Body Wash offers gentle, effective cleansing and conditioning with a pH balance for everyday use. It has a light scent that leaves hair and skin smelling fresh and clean.
An antimicrobial skin cleanser will help eliminate bacteria and prevent the spread of germs, an important part of flu and cold season protection. Remedy 4-in-1 Antimicrobial Cleanser cleans, moisturizes, helps provide protection against microorganisms and nourishes the skin in one step unlike harsh soaps that strip skin of moisture. Its ingredients include a blend of antioxidants, amino acids and vitamins with natural and organic oils that mimic the body's natural lipids and gently cleanse skin without stripping it of its own oils. The same 4-in-1 approach is available in a no-rinse foam.
