Proactive Solution is a well-known, celebrity endorsed acne treatment system.
One of the world’s largest producers and marketers of products for acne-prone skin, proactiv company claims that its newly formulated acne products are faster and gentler than ever before — but does proactive really work? Out of thousands ofProactive reviews it scored a high rating.
So how does it fight acne? The answer is it really doesn’t fight acne directly but rather indirectly. The sebaceous glands, when over-active cause acne, produce sebum where bacteria live and cause pimples. Benzoyl peroxide has antibacterial properties and this is how it helps with acne. It has natural moisturizers and emollients and humectants.
Now those words sound big and you can look them up if you need to but the idea behind this product is to give your skin moisture in the form of water thus leaving less room for oil which can clog pores and lead to zit formation.
Other Proactiv acne products also contain all the right ingredients, plus ingredients that can undo the benefits of the product.
And it’s a whole less expensive than the Advanced Blemish Treatment. The Body Pads contain ingredients that open pores, along with ingredients that close them.
Proactiv says its newly reformulated acne products heal acne faster and with fewer side effects than ever before. The Deep Cleansing Wash costs about three times more than comparable products because it contains salicylic acid—which you rinse off your face and down the drain before it gets a chance to work.The Advanced Blemish Treatment contains 6% benzoyl peroxide, strong enough to kill acne bacteria on contact but also strong enough to cause stinging, burning, itching, redness, dryness, and flaking skin, all of which make keep forming new blemishes.
The Conceal Plus Sulfur product contains 6% sulfur, which is enough both to kill bacteria and to irritate the skin. The Repairing Treatment is strong enough to work but mild enough not to cause skin irritation.
