I'm really heartbroken. After years of trying new facial cleansers and scrubs, I always reverted back to my trusty old Noxzema. The smell reminded me of my Mom. Look what I have found out now:

The gelatin used in the Noxzema Deep Cleansing Cream is animal-derived. The gelatin used is a key ingredient in the product which is critical to the unique formula

EEEEEEEWWWWWWWW. I'm pissed! Why is melted animal bones integral to a formula for washing my face? I don't understand at all.

The email goes on to list a number of alternative products. I don't want alternatives, I want the original in HALAL FORM!!!!

These are the Noxzema products that do not contain any gelatin ingredient:
Daily Cream Cleanser
Deep Lathering Cleanser
Wet Cleansing Cloths
Daily Exfoliating Cleanser
60 Second Cleansing Whip
Triple Clean Anti-Blemish Astringent
Triple Clean Anti-Blemish Pads
Triple Clean Blackhead Cleanser
Triple Clean Anti-Bacterial Lathering Cleanser
Continuous Clean Citrus Scrub with Vitamin C and Long Lasting Microbead Cleanser

Now, I'm not sure if this email means that the products are animal free, or that they are just free of gelatin. I'm still waiting for a response on that question.

  1. I recently started using Noxzema and loved it so much because it actually cleansed my face well.
    But when I noticed it had gelatin I was like D:!
    Thanks for listing alternative products from Noxzema, I guess I'll try those out.
    Disappointed in Noxzema though. :c
