Gently cleanse and soothe sensitive or inflamed skin. Mario Badescu's oil-free cream cleanser is formulated with isodecyl salicylate, a gentle beta hydroxy acid also known as keratoplast, to reduce redness and help rid the skin of pore-clogging buildup leaving dry, dull skin soft and rejuvenated.
Twice daily, gently massage cleanser in circular motions on wet skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Follow with toner and moisturizer. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

      THREE prescription gels/creams for acne, rosacea, and seborheic dermatitis. My skin was red, had cysts, and flakes. Stopped taking the prescriptions, started using this cleanser, matching toner, and moisturiser, and today I went to work with only primer and powder. No foundation! Skin is clear and soft!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Keratoplast Cream Soap:

        This face wash is super easy to use, feels nice on the skin and made my skin feel clean and soft after. I bought it to help with the redness in my cheeks and I do think that it is calming, however I still need a face wash that combats acne which I don't feel this does. Still great for redness, dry and sensitive skin though.

            I use this twice a day and it's really helped my combo/normal skin with a major break out I'm having. I like that it's a good product at a suitable price for a broke college student.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Keratoplast Cream Soap:

            The smell on this stuff is intense. And it dries very quickly, so even though I only used my sonic brush for a minute, I still had to add water. My skin liked it, though. I'm not sure it liked it as much as my CeraVe, but everyone's skin needs different things, so that's not an objective statement.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Keratoplast Cream Soap:

              I am a big fan of this brand and from the label, this waa the cleanser for me. My skin is very thin, prone to instant redness but also oily in T-zone. Despite aggressive rinsing, it felt as if the cleanser remained on the skin. Mote alarming was that it dried out portions of my face to the extent that there was flaking and peeling.

                  Our Keratoplast Cream Soap is a daily cleanser that will soothe skin, remove make-up and leave skin feeling soft and smooth. Our Keratoplast Cleansing Lotion is a toner to be used after cleansing, that will also help soothe sensitive skin types.

                  A:

                  Keratoplast Cream Soap is developed with the most sensitive skin in mind - including those suffering from redness. You can pair it with our Keratoplast Cleansing Lotion, which is also formulated to address dry skin that's prone to redness, for maximum benefits.

                I have been using this product a few months to reduce redness and irritation. It has worked some but I need not realize it didn't treat acne. What is a product I could use with this to aid with treating blemishes? Thanks!

                I am experiencing severely dry skin on my face. Its not only on the sides of my nose but also on my cheeks and spreading down towards my chin. It's getting progressively worse. I use the seaweed cleanser and toner, then buttermilk moisturizer. I also use the rose hips oil. How does this compare to the seaweed cleanser?
