A healthy skin can bounce back after any damage but it is not the same when the skin grows old. Older skin tends to lose water faster leading to dryness of the skin. Dry skin causes itching, making people uncomfortable. People think itchy skin is normal as they age and it has nothing to do with the products they regularly use, however that is not true. Soap is alkaline whereas our skin is acidic, so having an alkaline clean the skin can naturally damage it, leading to faster water loss. When the water loss occurs, the skin dries quicker, further aggravating the need to cleanse the skin. The instant remedy from all these problems is syndets.
Syndet is derived by combining the words “synthetic” and “detergent”.Syndets are made by combining various detergents also known as surfactants. These surfactants make syndet bars the mildest personal cleaning bars in the market.
Syndets are recommended for cleansing sensitive skin and even baby skin, as they are far more skin-friendly than traditional soaps. Since these syndet bars are pH neutral they help the skin to stay hydrated and clean.
So, the next time you visit your dermatologist, make sure to get the right syndet suggested for your skin type.
