Dr Schröder: What is perioral dermatitis or POD?
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that moisturises and conditions skin, whilst possessing anti-bacterial properties.
There is some interesting research that suggests xylitol has the ability to inhibit bacterial biofilm on skin, which in turn may be the cause of many skin issues.
We use Xylitol in both our cleansers, the mild and gentle Milk Cleanser and the more deep-cleansing Gel Cleanser.
The Xylitol we use is made in Finland from European hardwood.
