03/31/2015 UPDATE: Unfortunately I received information that Sebamed is no longer considered cruelty free as they sell now in China which requires animal testing. I can no longer support Sebamed. :-(
Today I like you to introduce to a German brand that I used already as a young child! I wasn´t even aware that this brand is available here in the US! Yay to that!
Sebamed is cruelty free! (Leaping Bunny certified)
Sebamed Liquid Face & Body Wash claims:
"Sebamed Liquid Face and Body Wash'sultra-mild formulation is compatible with the most sensitive of skins. It works to deep-clean pores without causing dryness or irritation as regular soap can. Fortified with a natural moisturizing complex of vitamins and soothing allantoin, it rinses away completely for naturally healthier, smoother skin.
The Science Behind Healthy Skin
Every sebamed product is meticulously formulated to a pH balance of exactly 5.5 - precisely the pH of healthy skin. This is essential in maintaining your skin's natural hydrolipid barrier against environmental stress. Any other pH level, such as found in soap may leave your skin open to break-down and deterioration. Discover what 150 clinical studies have already shown -- pH 5.5 is vital for healthy skin."
Did you know that your skin has a pH level? It is actually a wonder that no other brand ever copied the idea behind Sebamed- but Sebamed remains the only brand I know of that adapts the correct ph- level of 5.5 for our skin! If you use a cleanser with the wrong ph level, your skin ends up with the wrong ph level- which in return will make your skin dried out, unhealthy and unbalanced! Isn´t that interesting?
You can use this for your face as well as your body. It is super mild to your skin, will not dry it out and also: I do love the scent so much! It is a very fresh and clean scent. This is suited also for sensitive skin (which I don´t have). I find that cleansers made for sensitive skin have a strange medicine like scent- so here is the chance to finally get a cleanser that smells nice for you! ;-) I love this scent and missed it so much!
It brings back so many memories! It is so funny that they seemed not to have changed the formula one bit- even the color is the same green color I still remember- but why change a formula that IS ALREADY PERFECT?
Sebamed Moisturizing Body Lotion claims:
"Dermatologist developed, this nourishing, non-irritating formula is suitable for the most sensitive of skins. Rapidly absorbed and non-greasy, it restores your skin's moisture balance, providing natural protection from the elements. Enriched with chamomile extract and allantoin to soothe and moisturize. Regular use tones the natural elasticity of your skin for a more youthful, healthy appearance."
This is the perfect addition after using the Body Wash- a super light weight body lotion that moisturizes very well- again with the perfect ph- level of healthy skin. It has the same light fresh and clean scent that I do love so much (again: not like so many other lotions for sensitive skin which smell like medicine). This is also suited for sensitive skin and I love to use it also as a hand lotion.
Sebamed products are without parabens (which can cause cancer) and are also biodegradable.
I highly recommend Sebamed to all of you!
