CLn is a skin cleanser product company founded by Dr. Azam Anwar, a cardiologist who developed MRSA (a strain of bacteria resistant to penicillin-based antibiotics) cellulitis (a skin infection) on his leg.
As part of his treatment for the infection, he was instructed to cleanse the area daily using chlorhexidine (a powerful clinical skin disinfectant used to clean skin prior to surgery).
He was unable to tolerate the frequent use of chlorhexidine, so he was instructed to bathe using a dilute solution of sodium hypochlorite (commonly known as bleach); the infection soon resolved in part due to the sodium hypochlorite baths.
Through his collaboration with dermatologists and other medical professionals, a cleanser that was safe, potent, affordable and easy to use was developed and was thereafter known as CLn Body Wash.
Since that time, CLn has expanded its repertoire to include a variety of gel-based skin cleansers harnessing the antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of sodium hypochlorite.
CLn Skin Clarifying Acne Cleanser is such a cleanser that contains both sodium hypochlorite and a dilute formulation of salicylic acid to help treat and prevent acne breakouts.
One of the most important things that we can do for our skin, especially our face, is to wash it regularly.
Normally, the facial skin produces sebum (oil) and sweat throughout the day, which can form an oily layer on your skin.
Skin also accumulates pollutants (dirt particles) and dead skin cells, which combine with oil and sweat; this provides a substrate for bacterial proliferation, ultimately leading to the obstruction of pores.
Ideally, the face should be washed twice daily; if you work out or engage in vigorous physical activity, you should wash your face afterward.
