Clinical Pharmacology

Consept® is an amphoteric surfactant blend. Amphoterics are the highest grade of surfactants or skin cleansers. They were developed and are utilized in baby care products due to the fact they are not primary ocular irritants. Amphoterics represent the mildest, least irritating surfactants in current chemical technology. Consept represents an extremely unique amphoteric blend with a synergistic blend of emollients. Consept promotes natural turgor and prevents dryness, scaling and irritation.
