Acne Treatment That Works
Acne is a complicated condition, but treating it doesn’t have to be. We’ve created a system that’s easy to follow, eliminating any possible guesswork. The Proactiv+ method is a three-step combination therapy approach, to be used over the entire face, not just on individual pimples. Using it consistently, as you would any skincare system, is key to helping prevent new breakouts. The beauty of Proactiv+ is that it tackles all aspects of mild-to-moderate acne by unplugging pores, attacking bacteria and is designed to minimize the irritation commonly associated with benzoyl peroxide. And Proactiv+ works both immediately to treat acne pimples, as well as over time to help prevent more breakouts.
We’ve mastered our formulations to ensure that you are using high quality ingredients effectively. Proactiv+ contains three proven acne-fighting medicines: Benzoyl peroxide (BPO), salicylic acid and sulfur. Benzoyl peroxide kills the p. acnes bacteria that cause acne.
With Proactiv+ Smart Target® technology, the BPO medicine is pulled right into the pore where the bacteria lives. With “more in the pore,” the benzoyl peroxide shouldn’t sit on the skin’s surface where it could cause irritation. Salicylic acid works on blackheads, whiteheads and plugged pores by helping slough off dead skin cells. Sulfur reduces redness and irritation. Each step builds on the previous one; it’s logical, orderly and it works.
