The Truth Behind Cetaphil

Do you use Cetaphil? You may want to reconsider.  Even though it seems plain and safe for sensitive skin, you aren’t doing your skin any favors.  Yes, there are only eight ingredients (water, cetyl alcohol, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, stearyl alcohol, methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben) but they are all chemically manufactured, except for the water. 

“Cetaphil does not contain even one single beneficial ingredient and what it does contain is the equivalent of toxic sludge. Whether you think it’s keeping your skin healthy or not, it is absorbed into your bloodstream and research has proven almost all of the few ingredients in it are carcinogenic. I know it’s hard to imagine that washing your face can give you cancer but it’s worth consideration.”   - Spirit Demerson
