Sebamed products, available at Costco, benefit users by supporting the skin's protective layer, maintaining its natural pH 5.5 level, enhancing moisture retention and enabling deep cleaning without irritation or dryness, according to the company. Other benefits of Sebamed products include toning, increased elasticity and softer skin. They are also hypoallergenic; free of parabens, soap and alkaline products; noncomedogenic; safe for most skin types; and do not cause or worsen acne.
The benefits of Sebamed products stem from the 5.5 pH level and a combination of vitamins, chamomile and allantoin. When the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the skin, is irritated or dry, skin becomes more vulnerable to allergens and environmental irritants, as well as stress and hormonal changes, triggering inflammation. By matching the pH level of its products to that of the skin, Sebamed helps maintain the skin's built-in barrier to both internal and external irritants.
