Clean & Clear introduces Soft skin care products
SKILLMAN, N.J. Clean & Clear, a Johnson & Johnson Consumer Products brand, has introduced Soft, a moisturizing line of skin care products for younger consumers.
According to the company, consumer studies have shown that 84 percent of females aged 18 to 24 began using a facial moisturizer before they turned 18. While there are many facial products for young consumers on the market, many of them address acne and problem skin. The new Soft line is designed to be a healthy daily regimen for normal skin.
The line includes Clean & Clear Soft Night Cream formulated with Glycolic Acid that works to clarify skin throughout the night and promote a radiant complexion. There’s also the brand’s first treatment, the Clean & Clear Soft Steam In-Shower Facial, a one-minute treatment that is applied to the skin in the shower. The line also includes Clean & Clear Soft Purifying Cleanser, which is a conditioning, foaming face scrub that cleanses and exfoliates. To protect skin against the elements, there’s also Clean & Clear Soft Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15.
The products have a suggested retail price of $7.99 each.
