Which SA washes do the people from the UK use, i'm using the one in my regimen right now but wanna know if there is a better one out there even though i dont have any complaints with this one so far but i'm just interested, also what is the maximum percentage of SA you can have in a cleanser and does anyone know what the percentage is in the one i use.

Thanks

The max % of SA that can bein a cleanser is 2% i think. But im sure the US have some that go up to 8%.

Yours should be 2% :)

Also look at paulas choice :D they have an EU distributor :)

Ok cheers for that mate i thought it would be 2% which i'm sure is the max here in the UK, what is with the emulsifying ointment your using now then to cleanse with, isn't that some type of moisturiser?.

well iv had it for ages since like november 06, and the derm back then rold me it would help keep acne outbreaks to a minimum and help with oily skin. But it was really greasy and had to wash off.

Though recently i found that a friend used it aswell cause he gets a rash when he uses normal soap/cleansers, and he told me that all he does to help it go on/off your skin is to premix it with water (in the tub) so its consistancy is creamy rather than waxy, and it worked :)

it leaves my skin feeling slighly strange (not in a bad way) and since EO is oil based (ingrediants: Emulsifying wax 30%, white soft paraffin 50%, liquid paraffin 20%) it doesnt strip oil, but replenishes it.

Its non comedogenic, and IMO is better than anything iv washed with, it may take more time to remove from my face (have to lighty use cotton wool)

10/10 :)
