"Razor burn", "razor bump", and "ingrown hair" are all terms for folliculitis, a common skin condition where hair follicles (the tiny openings in the skin that enclose hair) are damaged, and so are at greater risk of inflammation. These openings can become plugged or irritated by sweat, oils, and makeup. Any location of the body which contains hair can be affected and often look like rashes and pimples. The most common areas include the face or scalp, especially in areas where there is repeated irritation from shaving. The thighs and groin can be affected by clothing repeatedly rubbing the area. There is also pityrosporum folliculitis, known as "back acne”. Proper cleansing is an important step on the journey to healthy skin. Cleansing is known to wash away microbes from the skin, and promote skin health. CLn’s gentle formulas are designed for daily routine usage. For more information, please visit the FAQ.
