When a foaming agent is added to a solution, it effectively incorporates air into the solution, resulting in more foam. However, this does not mean that the cleansing ability is also enhanced. Foam is mainly for visual and tactile enjoyment and does not represent the functionality and effectiveness of a cleansing product. The amount of foam only indicates that the product has added a high concentration of surfactants, and it does not fully reflect the effectiveness of the cleansing function.
What impact does foam have on sensitive skin?
For sensitive skin, foam may have some effects on the skin. Sensitive skin is typically more fragile and prone to irritation, so using facial cleansers with excessive foam may exacerbate sensitivity reactions.
Here are some possible effects:
- Dryness: Facial cleansers with excessive foam often contain higher concentrations of surfactants, which can strip the skin of its natural oils and cause dryness and tightness.
- Irritation: Some surfactants may cause irritation to sensitive skin, leading to redness, swelling, itching, and other discomfort.
- Disruption of the skin barrier: Facial cleansers with excessive foam can potentially disrupt the skin’s natural barrier function, further exacerbating issues for sensitive skin and making it more susceptible to external irritants and infections.

Our HYDRATING CLEANSER uses a gentle, non-foaming formula with mild ingredients that effectively dissolve dirt from the skin without compromising the skin’s natural sebum barrier. It helps maintain skin stability and health. Suitable for use day and night, the texture is smooth and easy to spread, making it particularly suitable for dry and sensitive skin.
