Need a stronger cleanser than Cetaphil for oily skin

Cetaphil is a great gentle cleanser, however I would probably recommend something else for oily skin.

When looked at with Visia complexion analysis, my patients with oily skin that used Cetaphil as their cleanser tend to have more bacteria counts on their skin.

If you like soapless cleansers, try Purpose by Johnson and Johnson.  Also very mild but is foaming and tends to clean oily skin better.  Or use Dove for Sensitive Skin bar.
