Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths

Overview

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths falls into the category of products that are meant to be rinsed off, peeled off, or taken off. We believe that the moisturizing effects of these products end as soon as they are removed from the skin, no matter how many moisturizing ingredients are on the ingredient list. This is why we don’t provide a moisturizing rating for them.
