Today, there are a variety of Noxzema products that are designed to treat various skin conditions.

Shaving Cream

Noxzema is also effective as a shaving cream. Razors can be harsh on skin, ripping it and leaving it dry. This cream acts as a barrier between the blade and the skin. Due to its moisturizing properties, it leaves the skin feeling extra smooth after shaving.

Paint Remover

Noxzema helps to remove paint from skin. This is less harsh than turpentine and lye soap, which can leave the skin dry and cracked and can be very painful. Simply apply soap and Noxzema to the paint, rub and rinse, and you will be paint free.
