Triple Clean Anti-Bacterial Lathering Cleanser contains 0.3% triclosan, which is a good antibacterial agent that can be a helpful start toward reducing acne-causing bacteria. However, the amount of potassium hydroxide in this cleanser makes it more drying than most, and there are better cleansers with triclosan. This is still an OK option for those with very oily skin who prefer a foaming cleanser.
Deep cleans down to the pores, fights bacteria and rinses clean without overdrying or clogging your pores. Leaves you with healthy-looking skin.
Active: Triclosan (0.3%), Other: Water, Glycerin, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Myristic Acid, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Lauric Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Polyquaternium-10, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Pentasodium Pentetate, DMDM Hydantoin, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Fragrance

Your skin-care goal should never include causing needless irritation, but that's exactly what you'll get from almost all of the Noxzema products, and that seems to have been their theme for decades. Noxzema is proud of its history, but that pride is hollow because these products are a problem for any skin type. Also, what we know today about how to take the best possible care of skin is vastly different from what we knew when Noxzema first launched, and yet their formulas haven’t changed. Think of it like using a typewriter rather than a computer, why would you do that? Many of you may have nostalgic memories of Noxzema's recognizable scent, but that is the only way we'd recommend experiencing these products. With the exception of one standard clay mask and a couple of questionable cleansers, this line is one of the few that deserves complete avoidance.

    • This Second part of the first review But i saw noxzema triple clean antibacterial cleaner on the shelf at dollar general and i said lets try it. And i tell you it saved my life. I mean you have no idea. And people i also realized that when i stopped drying my face off with papertowel instead of a wash cloth or face towel it made a bigger difference. It cleared up even more. So i hope this repackaging and rebranding doesn't change the way the product was made before because it just fine.
