A-Derma Foaming Gel was recommended by my dermatologist to help me manage my dry and irritated skin. I had tried all sorts of different cleansers, creams and ointments, so I wasn’t expecting much from A-Derma. But such is life – sometimes we get pleasant surprises when we expect them the least. My skin felt relieved right from the first time I used A-Derma. I use A-Derma as a face wash as well as a body wash. I also use it as a handwash. Every other cleanser including Cetaphil was making my hands dry and sore. I suffer from Atopic dermatitis – so my skin is very sensitive and prone to dryness. A-Derma is the only cleanser that has worked for me so far. I always keep at least one bottle of A-Derma as a backup because I don’t think I can survive without it if it ever goes out of stock. In case you’re suffering from cutaneous dryness and sensitive skin, I suggest you check with your dermatologist if you can use A-Derma as a cleanser. If it works for you, then your quest for the perfect cleanser may finally come to an end.
A-Derma has a soap free formula. It is a gel based cleanser with thin consistency. It is nearly transparent – it has a slight lemony yellow tint. It doesn’t generate too much lather but it cleanses well nonetheless. It gives the skin a squeaky clean feeling. A-Derma’s gentle cleansing base has a pH of 6.5. My sore hands are now healing – Thanks to A-Derma. After each hand wash with A-Derma, I use Ducray Ictyane HD Emollient Cream (another great product for those suffering from dry irritated skin conditions).
A-Derma contains Rhealba Oat. While some pieces of medical literature discourage use of oat as an ingredient in cleansers or ointments for Atopic skin, I’ve never had a problem with A-Derma. I have been using it continuously for the last 6 months. Rhealba Oat, used in this cleanser is said to have anti irritant and soothing properties. While A-Derma contains fragrance, it is very mild. Cleansing with A-Derma has never left my skin feeling dry and stretched. I am extremely satisfied with this cleanser. Highly recommended!
