The American Medical Association and Dermatologist state that soap and water will serve the same purpose as cleansing creams and lotions, is less expensive, and offers less risk of allergy. However, soap can be more drying and pH damaging to the skin. For this reason, BioKorium developed our Lipid-Free Wash, which gently cleanses to remove oils and debris without the drying properties of other soaps and facial cleansers, and most important maintaining your skin pH balance. Hence, for those undergoing laser or chemical peeling, you will find this wash ideal for lightly cleansing tender skin of exfoliating skin debris in the post-op healing stages. Its lipid free character makes it an added benefit to acne prone skin in that it leaves skin clean and moisturized, without disturbing skin pH which can exacerbate acne conditions. Because of its silky and gliding texture, some of my friends have been using it as shaving base for their face with great results. All of BioKorium’s Original Facial Wash is non-comedogenic, fragrance free, dye free, sulphate-free and can be used on the most sensitive skin. It’s been designed to be low lathering, therefore allowing it to rinse easily. Lastly, BioKorium’s Original Facial Wash can be used with or without water.
