Obagi Gentle Cleanser is a dissolving cleanser recommended for cleaning normal to dry, sensitive skin. It helps remove impurities, make-up, dead skin cells, and excess oil without irritating the skin. This formulation is designed to clean the skin surface and pores gently and effectively. Wash the face morning and evening with the cleanser.
Note: Cleansing with soap is not recommended because soap has detergent properties and an alkaline pH that can make skin feel dry and uncomfortable. Cleansers that contain abrasive granules for removing exfoliating stratum corneum can irritate, and long-term use is not recommended.
Lukewarm or cool water should be used with either Obagi cleansers. Hot water can stimulate oil secretion in oily skin or dry out and irritate the skin. The skin should not be rubbed hard with a towel in the process of drying.
