“The pineapple phytoceramides in this cleanser provide a moisturization boost, which is great for skin over 50. This is because as we get older, our production of Natural Moisturization Factor (NMF) decreases. It declines even more so for those on medications such as statins (for hypercholesterolemia) and diuretics (for hypertension), as these drugs can contribute to additional skin dryness.
Bromelain also reduces bruising in the skin. Aging skin (50-plus) can experience a decrease in collagen around the blood vessels and increased senile purpura. The cleanser also contains niacinamide, white orchid and licorice extracts, which have been clinically found to prevent further oxidative damage in aging and aged skin, and reduce skin darkening from lentigines.” —Tucson, AZ dermatologist Indy Chabra, MD
