Re: Biochem moisturizer warning

Kitty, I don't pretend to try to explain anything.  The only soap
that goes on my face is shampoo from washing my hair in the
shower.  Other times I just spash handfuls of warm water on
my face over and over until it feels clean.  I read this in a book 
on beauty techniques that I indexed many years ago.  Since
I don't use makeup either, there is no problem of removing
it.  (In other words, what you see is what you get.)
If I have been in the sun too long - which isn't very long for
my redhead's complexion - I use aloe gel, and sometimes
in the winter if it feels chapped, Vitamin E gel.  Otherwise, 
nothing but the milk.  Since I started doing this I have not
had any of the problems that plagued me for so many
years.  Might not work for anyone else, but at least the price
is right.

Auralie, I'm glad you found something that works for you.  Can you explain
what properties milk contains that actually cleanse?  When I garden I
sometimes really get into a project and can have a film of dust  over my
face.  Then there's sweat.  Can milk cut through this sort of thing?

Years ago I read a book by a professional make up artist called something
like "Don't go to the Cosmetics Counter without Reading This First", in
which she dispelled some of the myths of the "new" ingredients of the time
that were being used in cosmetics and facial creams.  She suggested Cetaphil
and I found it at Walgreens.  I've used it on my face ever since.  It's
gentle but does a good job of removing grime.  At one time my dermatologist
asked what I used.  He agreed that Cetaphil was an excellent choice.
