The last time I’ve used gentle cleansers (you know, those non bubbly, no-scent kind), was when the kids were still babies.
Lately though, my youngest’s skin has been drier and more sensitive. His back literally feels like sandpaper! This has prompted me to look for an alternative body cleanser for him.
A friend recommended Vecirin, a daily gentle cleanser that’s suitable for use on the face and the body.
I immediately took to it because of the following promise:
- No SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate)
- SLS, a known skin irritant, strips away the skin’s natural lipids, rendering it more susceptible to external irritants.
- No Parabens
- Parabens are artificial preservatives that has been in controversy for studies that say parabens are potentially toxic, linking it to cancer.
- Natural Ingredients
- Vecirin uses natural ingredients that are proven just as effective, yet mild and gentle on the skin.
Unlike normal body washes, this has a more watery feel.
It also does not form suds. It’s the kind that you can just rub off with a towel with no soap residue. This was good because it allowed lesser time under the warm water, which meant lesser chance of drying the skin. It also does not smell like anything, no sweet scent, no artificial fragrance.
We’ve been using it for a couple of weeks already and though the itch is still there, the skin isn’t as rough anymore. I know, I know. I’d really have to go to a dermatologist to have it checked out. In the meantime, it’s a comfort to know that with the switch I’ve made, it’s not the body cleanser that’s irritating his skin.
Safe even for Newborns
Speaking of gentle, I also learned that Vecirin is mild and gentle enough even for a newborn’s sensitive skin. I’m due to give birth in less than a month and what better way to prepare than to stock up on this brand of daily gentle cleanser!
Oh, shucks! Did I overdo it???
