Clearasil® Daily Face Wash

Daily Face Wash is a somewhat harsh, water-soluble foaming cleanser because of the inclusion of alkaline potassium stearate and other cleansing agents that aren't the best for skin. This foaming cleanser is far too drying to be suitable for sensitive skin. The bulk of its cleansing agents are akin to standard bar soap, while soothing, barrier-protecting ingredients are all but absent. The cleanser is medicated with 2% salicylic acid (also known as BHA) but despite this ingredient's ability to fight acne, in a cleanser much of its ability is rinsed down the drain.
