Foaming Zinc™ Cleanser is a rich foaming cleanser medicated with pyrithione zinc for scalp and body skin problems. 

Foaming Zinc Cleanser is a unique part of my Back Acne Kit for the treatment for stubborn back acne. It contains 2% zinc pyrithione, which is my "secret ingredient" that is missing in other acne treatment products.

My Foaming Zinc Cleanser is also a great foaming medicated dandruff shampoo that can treat stubborn scalp dandruff and beardruff.

If you have back acne and chest acne you know that they are frustrating and hard conditions to treat. The two main reasons are:

  1. Back and chest skin is thick, and facial acne products don't penetrate it well.
  2. The causes of back acne and chest acne are often different than those for the common type of facial acne. Most acne medicines don't treat these issues.

In my dermatology practice, the major cause of most back and chest acne is a yeast germ called Pityrosporum. This germ also plays a role in dandruff and its related skin problems.

Tackle stubborn back and chest acne with this unique ingredient and watch your skin improve.

The non-prescription medicine zinc pyrithione helps fight Pityrosporum. Zinc pyrithione isn't typically included in acne products, but Dr. Bailey Skin Care Foaming Zinc Cleanser contains zinc pyrithione at the highest level allowed. This makes it the best and most complete acne skin care product for treating back and body acne.

Tackle stubborn dandruff with the strongest dandruff fighting ingredients available

Foaming zinc has a full 2% pyrithione zinc. Most OTC pyrithione zinc shampoos have 0,5%. It matters to your results. Plus, my Foaming Zinc is highly effective at lifting oil and dirt from your scalp and reaches deep into your pores, where the Pityrosporum yeast is growing.

Because the same yeast germ plays a role in scalp acne and dandruff, Foaming Zinc Cleanser is an excellent dandruff treatment shampoo.

Add a really good Scalp Scrubber to lift stubborn scale and gain control of dandruff.

My favorite scalp scrubber was the result of a detailed search of all scalp scrubbers made. This one has the perfect firmness to lift scale without scratching. I recommend you order it with your Foaming Zinc.

As a dermatologist, I do scalp exams all day long and I can tell you that simple shampooing doesn't get our scalps really clean. Using a plastic scalp scrubber when you lather your scalp will help. It will lift scale, dirt and debris up from between your hairs so that your scalp rinses cleaner than ever before.

I've treated thousands of patients with back and chest acne over the past 30+ years of my dermatology practice. My Foaming Zinc Cleanser is a professional skin care product that targets what I have seen over my years of medical practice to be a primary cause of back acne. This medical experience is what separates professional skin care from over-the-counter skin care. Giving you a product to help control the often overlooked Pityrosporum yeast is the "secret" that often clears back acne, making Foaming Zinc Cleanser an important ingredient in any successful back acne treatment.

Key Ingredient:

  • 2% pyrithione zinc

Always cruelty-free and made in the U.S.A.

I recommend using Foaming Zinc Cleanser every day or every other day. Massage the cleanser onto your skin creating a foam and leave the foam on your skin or scalp for 5 minutes, then rinse well. Foaming Zinc Cleanser can be applied to your skin with the Salux Cloth. It can be massaged into the scalp with the Scalp Scrubber Brush. Please read my Tips for Success for more information.

Scalp dandruff care: When used as a dandruff shampoo, lather and rinse your hair twice. Use your favorite shampoo for your first lather to remove oil and product residue from both your scalp and the tresses of your hair. Your second lather with the Foaming Zinc is directed at your scalp skin, not the tresses of your hair. As always, apply shampoo from the base of your scalp and in areas of scalp where you have parted your hair. Gently massage the shampoo onto the entire scalp skin and then massage with the Scalp Scrubber Brush to help lift scale. Always be gentle with your tresses so that friction does not lift the protective hair cuticle scales when you shampoo your hair. Allow the medicated lather to sit on the scalp skin for 5 minutes then rinse. Medicated pyrithione zinc will remain behind on your skin to continue treating dandruff throughout the day. 

Facial skin care: Foaming Zinc Cleanser may be a little drying for some people with sensitive facial skin or dry skin. My Calming Zinc facial soap is designed for dryer facial skin affected by Pityrosporum yeast related skin problems.
