My darling people, I feel it is my duty to inform you: Despite what 9 out of 10 dermatologists say, Cetaphil is the devil. It may look harmless and smell harmless but by golly it’s craptastic. One plastic jug contains just eight ingredients: water, cetyl alcohol, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, stearyl alcohol, methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben.
Everything but the water is chemically manufactured, and propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, and three (three!) parabens are potentially cancer-causing! Which means, there is not a single beneficial ingredient in this cleanser.
So what’s a girl to do? Step one: Put your Cetaphil in the trash. Step two: Pick up a natural alternative! My favorites are Osmosis’s Cleanse and Purify!
