Clearasil® Acne Cream Ingredients

Clearasil® is dedicated to helping you fight acne – we use a number of different ingredients that can help your skin banish blemishes and prevent future breakouts. Take a few moments to read through some of our top contenders: understanding acne and the substances that fight it is a great step toward tailoring your skincare routine. By knowing about these common ingredients you can try Clearasil® products that contain the ones you think will best help your skin.

Benzoyl Peroxide

This type of peroxide is found in a wide variety of products outside of skincare (hair bleach and teeth whiteners, for example) but it acts as a peeling agent in our products, helping skin to slough off dead skin cells, revealing the newer skin underneath and encouraging faster turnover. It also helps discourage bacteria from setting up shop in your pores – remember it’s a member of the peroxide family, which tends to have antimicrobial properties.

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid encourages skin to slough off dead cells, helps pores open up so they can release trapped dirt and oil, and then helps kill bacteria left in pores and aids in closing up pores so they don’t get more dirt and bacteria stuck in them. It’s quite the heavy-lifter when it comes to helping clear up acne.

Benefits Of Clearasil® Acne Cream

Clearasil® offers a quick spot treatment cream that uses Acceladerm technology to visibly reduce redness and spot sizes in as little as four hours.

Dermatologist-tested Clearasil® Rapid Rescue Spot Treatment Acne Cream contains 10% benzoyl peroxide to penetrate pores and keep treating pimples even after use. To prevent possible excessive drying, start with one application daily before increasing up to three times a day if needed.

After applying the cream to clean skin, let it completely dry before applying sunscreen.
