The skin that is being treated with radiation should be cleaned with the Foaming Cleanser at least twice a day. Dispense a rich foam onto your hands and gently apply this to the skin with a light circular motion. Leaving the cleanser on the skin for 1 minute will help maximizing cleansing. After 1 minute rinse with warm water and blot dry. This cleanser is soap-free and will not dry out sensitive skin or make it feel tight. The Cleanser is also pH balanced to the same pH as your skin to ensure mildness.

What It Does

DermaRad Relief Gentle Foaming Cleanser is the only cleanser that should be used on skin that has become dry, rough and irritated from radiation treatments. Unlike other cleansers that contain harsh alkali based cleansing agents or lauryl sulfates which can damage the skin and cause more dryness, this Foaming Cleanser contains 2 very gentle surfactants that clean without drying out the skin. In addition, the cleanser is pH balanced to 7 which is much closer to the skin’s own pH than a pH of 10 or 11 that is typical of most soaps and cleansers. Finally, the cleanser dispenses as a foam which can be spread gently on the skin without rubbing.


Cancer patients undergoing radiation treatment will likely experience significant cosmetic skin problems such as dryness, skin roughness and redness. These conditions typically worsen as radiation treatments progress. To help maintain a healthy looking skin, patients need to use creams or lotions that provide extremely high levels of moisturizing oils, humectants, and antioxidants. DermaRad Relief Rehydrating Emulsion was specifically designed to meet the skin care needs of radiation patients. This unique formulation utilizes gentle, skin friendly oils and humectants resulting in a highly moisturizing lotion that is soothing and gentle to sensitive and damaged skin. In addition, the patented antioxidants in DermaRad Relief are potent inhibitors of surface free radicals.



Dermamedics' products contain the company’s patented antioxidant technology that was discovered by scientists conducting drug discovery research at a major medical school. Their five year research program focused on identifying natural compounds that could demonstrate anti-inflammatory and anti-aging activities when tested on human skin cells grown in culture. The patented antioxidant compound in DermaRad was one of over 300 natural compounds screened for beneficial effects on skin cells. The name of this compound is 4-propyl guaiacol (also known as dihydroeugenol and trademarked as Therosol®), and it is found in all DermaMedics products, including DermaRad Relief.
