Cliradex is a product that comes in two forms: a towelette and a foaming cleanser. Both serve the same basic function of cleansing, including reducing demodex mite populations on your face. This is accomplished through a slightly different mechanism with each.
The towelette literally wipes demodex away, while also depositing the main component T4O, which is isolated from tea tree oil for eliminating demodex mites. This compound kills the mites and breaks their life cycle, essentially leaving the user mite-free. The towelette was designed to use on the eyelid margins and can be used on the rest of the face as well. The foaming cleanser is designed to be used on the entire face, and can be used to wash the eyelids and lashes. The towelette has a more concentrated version of T-40, and the foaming cleanser is lighter; in line with its name Cliradex Light.
Cliradex Light Foam is a natural, preservative-free and non-irritating lash and facial foaming cleanser uniquely formulated with 4-Terpineol (T4O) to gently cleanse the skin and lashes. Unlike other products, Cliradex Light does not contain harsh ingredients that could potentially irritate the skin or eyes and end up making matters worse. Because common eye problems such as dryness, redness and itching are often caused by poor eye hygiene, using the right facial and eyelid cleanser can help to keep your eyelids and eyelashes clean.
Eye and Face Hygiene and Cliradex
Poor eyelid hygiene is also associated with lid-margin diseases such as blepharitis and dry eye and can lead to MGD and other ocular issues. Demodex mites are linked to these, as well as to skin issues like rosacea. Usually, cleansers are made with man-made chemicals and tend to be harsh and irritating. Cliradex is a natural, preservative-free, 100% vegan way to help keep your eyes and skin clean and healthy.
T4O is the main component of tea tree oil that kills the most mites. Cliradex is the only over the counter product available that has isolated this. On its own tea tree oil tends to be much more harsh, irritating the sensitive skin of the eyelids and face. The way that Cliradex has put together their formula, however, does the opposite – it kills mites while deep cleaning the eyelids and eyelashes, clarifying and calming the skin.
There is a significant body of scientific research that demonstrates Cliradex is the best product on the market for these issues. It is also the doctor recommended eyelid cleanser. Typically, because of its higher concentration of T4O, the towelettes are recommended to be used by people who are actively trying to eliminate an issue that is causing them irritation or symptoms. Use can come with a slight menthol-like sensation, which quickly fades. It is usually applied for 6-8 weeks, to assure that the entire lifecycle of the demodex mite is broken and the population that is creating eye or skin disease is eliminated. It is safe for use in almost everyone, though it should not usually be used in small children or infants without the recommendation and oversight of a pediatrician and in the hands of a responsible adult.
You Can Use Cliradex Light Every Day
Cliradex Light, on the other hand, is designed so that it can be used daily by adults to not only eliminate irritation and defend against demodex mite infestations, but also as part of your face and eyelid hygiene routine. Daily use can help ward off blepharitis, dry eye, conjunctivitis, MGD, rosacea and other skin and eye disorders. It is safe and gentle enough for virtually anyone to use twice a day. That use is as simple as following these steps:
- Shake well.
- Wash your hands and remove any makeup.
- Dispense a dime-sized amount of product onto your fingertips.
- Gently rub the foam into a light lather between your hands.
- Close your eyes and apply Cliradex to the eye area and surrounding facial areas.
