In brief: Gentle
Yes, gentle cleansers are ideal for acne prone skin.
Cetaphil and a competitor called purpose are both very good choices. Cetaphil also makes a good facial moisturizer that is nice for people with acne.

In brief: There are Better
Cetaphil is a soap free non-ionic cleanser. It does not adequately remove surface epidermal lipids.
Detergent cleansers are preferred.
