I am amazed that there doesn’t appear to be very much literature on Phisohex. I have been using it on my skin (mainly my face) for over 50 years. People always comment on my skin and how “nice” it is. I initially started using it due to having pimples and blackheads as a teenager. It was fantastic and when I stopped using it I once again “broke out”. I still have the skin problems due to hormonal issues and when the product is not available (which has happened quite frequently lately) I break out. Although advising people about this wonderful product it may make it harder for me to get it, I really think those people, especially teenagers, should try it if they have a problem with such issues as acne.

    My sister used to use this for her acne as a teenager – haven’t thought of it for such a long time.

    The primary ingredient in phisohex triclosan has been banned on Europe and USA. I wonder if it will het banned here. I used phiohex too for years. It was great but I am aware fda in many countries banned it.

    Just looked it up and saw the directions say to use it 3 times daily I have never had a product say that and I don’t have time for that but if it works it works and you can’t argue with what makes your skin look good.

    My doctor recommended this for folliculitis on my butt (the joy of sharing!),

    I used Phixohex as a teen, too. It’s available at Priceline & Chemist Warehouse.

    Reminds me of this French face wash that my cousin gifted me that I cannot recall the name of. She said it was very popular in France but it was like a boric acid wash and I could not understand what it did even after I used up the whole bottle.

    I’ve never heard of it, it sounds like a ‘gold mine’ if it is as good for other people as it is has been for your skin @Yvonne626 , I wonder why it has’nt become well known – do you need a prescription?.

    I think as a teen I tried something like this but now that I am older TBH I would not purchase this type of product and would tackle it using a combination of AHA/BHA/PHA acids. Kinda sceptical about a product that you only have on your face for a few minutes as opposed to something that penetrates the dermis for longer.

    I am also extremely wary of products that work and then when you stop using it, you suddenly have the original issue resurface.
