That's how I felt in the old days anyway, before I realized what being worth it really meant. Before I knew that seeing and even feeling isn't enough anymore. Before I understood that every product potentially had hidden costs And if I wasn't careful I'd be building a chemical soup one product full of ingredients at a time. And nobody knows what happens when all those ingredients blend together in my hair, skin, nasal passages...
Since I am worth it I put Gentle Cleanser to the Skin Deep test. Although there were about 15 Perricone products already in the database, this one wasn't. So the results I give you won't be directly searchable online. Skin Deep doesn't publish results until they've reviewed and researched the product on their own. And that's a good thing.
So these results are from my search. As always, I encourage you to do your own research. It's easy. Just enter the name, directions and ingredients here. You may need to develop a profile first, but they'll walk you through the process. It's easy.
My research showed that Gentle Cleanser scored 6 out of a possible 10. Six is the highest level of moderate risk before the product is high risk. Way too risky for me. Gentle Cleanser's headed for the giveaway pile.
Before moving on to the results- If anyone reading this has a recommendation for a good, safe facial cleanser Id really appreciate hearing from you. You can comment here or Twitter me: http://twitter.com/#!/minamosha
