Gently Cleanses - Won't Irritate Or Dry Facial Skin!!
on December 31, 2003
Dove unveiled its Essential Nutrients face care line in 2003. The skin care experts at Dove paid special attention to the use of lipids (nutrients found naturally in healthy skin) to help replace some of the skin nutrients that are lost on a daily basis. Weather, sun exposure, and daily washing routines contribute to lipid depletion in the skin. Dove selected several "essential nutrients" to add to the Essential Nutrients line, including fatty acids (stearic, oleic, and linoleic), ceramides (the current "it" cosmetic ingredient), and cholesterol. Fatty acids are believed to help maintain the suppleness and elasticity of skin, while ceramides and cholesterol improve the outer layer barrier function and improve skin's moisture balance. Containing vitamins, minerals, green tea extract, and fresh spring water, the new Dove skin products are excellent - and are reasonably priced and readily available.
I've been using the Non-Foaming Cleansing Lotion for Sensitive Skin for about three months now and this gentle, non-foaming cleanser is my favorite in this terrific skin care line. I usually do not care for non-foaming cleansers. They just don't leave my skin feeling clean, without residue. Dove's non-foaming cleansing lotion really does the job, however. It removes make-up, dirt and oil without drying my skin or leaving it with a too tight feeling. You can either rinse the lotion off with warm water or use a tissue to wipe it off. This product can certainly stand up to similar, more expensive products on the market today. Highly recommended!
