Update: We have been using this now for over 6 months. My dd skin remains 99% clear when she uses this. It is excellent. She follows this wash with her BP lotion and Olay Sensitive spf 15 moisturizer.
I have been trying to improve my 11 y/o dd's acne for nearly a year. I searched up reviews and found Zapzyt cleanser: I got it at drugstore.com but Walgreens lists it too. And it is dirt cheap. I tried it based on the reviews and the lack of typical detergents.
Active Ingredients: Salicylic Acid (2%)
Inactive Ingredients: Water (Purified), Disodium EDTA, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Gel, Bioterge AS 40, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glucamate Doe 120, Glydant, Sodium Chloride
It has very few ingredients and does not have the typical sulfate cleansers - the surfactant in it is Bioterge AS 40 (Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate) and it contains some salicylic acid however we have used SA before in cleanser and topical with no effect. She has been using this only a week and her skin is dramatically clearer. Nothing else was changed. It is a little more drying than other cleansers she has used but she just applies her moisturizer. She also follows the cleanser with her usual BP from Acne-Free (about 4%). Great stuff.
