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.

Comments about Mario Badescu Keratoplast Cream Soap:

I bought this in December of 2017, because I ran out of my face wash, and I always just switch around. Well, when I started using this I got the moist horrible breakouts of my life. now its April of 2018 and I'm​ still suffering from the hyperpigmentation and scars from the acne I got from this product at the time.

    Not a deep clean

    By kgr01

    from St. Louis

    Comments about Mario Badescu Keratoplast Cream Soap:

    I thought it felt nice on the skin and left it a bit softer than it has been, but it doesn't do a deep clean. It won't take off any makeup and it's supposed to be exfoliating, but the little texture beads in it aren't really large enough to do that.

        I have extremely sensitive skin and eyes. My skin gets really hot and bright red and my eyes burn with a lot of prdoucts. It's winter so my whole face is very dry. I have been using this product (and the keratoplast cleansing lotion and kera moisturizer) for 2 weeks and i love them all! My skin and eyes are not irritated and my face feels smooth and hydrated not stripped of moisturizer...I dont have to immediately rush to apply moisturizer like i use to!

              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!

                I am wondering if this cleanser is good for dry/sensitive skin with Eczema. If not, what cleanser and moisturizer do you recommend for those skin concerns? Also, is this fragrance free?

                  A:

                  The Keratoplast Cream Soap is not a fragrance free product, however this product is suitable for combination, dry, sensitive skin. We suggest using this product with our Kera Moisturizer.

                Does this cause acne? I washed my face once and the next day, I had small pimples all over my face. I don't know if it is due to this product, but I will use it a few times to check.

                  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.
