How Safe and Effective Micro-crystals Benzoyl Peroxide?
Proactiv Solution Philippines
Did you know that (this applies to those suffering from severe acne problems) your acne treatment product may contain harmful ingredients leaving your acne untreated from inside out? There has been acne medications claiming they can treat acne in an instance. If you’re too devastated to cure your acne problems – why does it eats your time, effort and patience? That’s because you haven’t tried the REAL medication for acne treatment or your too cheapskate you go for lesser value treatment in return you stress yourself too much which lead to sprouting acne. There’s this product that kills the sickening acne bacteria so efficiently you only need to invest little amount and a handful of trust.
The most widely use medications for acne treatment deemed as safe and trusted medicine is benzoyl peroxide. Endorse by dermatologists for more than 50 years with or without prescription. Considered “the gold standard of treating mild to moderate acne is the benzoyl peroxide. This is because it is a topical antimicrobial medicine, an oxidizing agent that specifically kills P. acnes, the bacteria that cause acne breakouts. To a lesser extent, it also helps to unblock pores and has an anti-inflammatory effect. BPO is not an antibiotic, and in 50 years of use, there has never been a documented case of BPO bacterial resistance; it is the cornerstone of prescription and over-the-counter acne therapy.”
Proactiv Solution has Micro-crystals (micro-crystal medicine) benzoyl peroxide. The exclusive form of benzoyl peroxide (BPO) found in the Proactiv 3-Step System’s Renewing Cleanser (Step 1 and Repairing Treatment (Step 3). A crystalline BPO that is finely milled in order to achieve the pore penetration required to control the acne cycle. The Proactiv micro-crystal BPO features exceptionally small and uniform particles—designed specifically to penetrate pores faster and to be gentler on the skin.
Comparison with other acne medications/treatments
Proactiv Solution vs Soap
While it may seem counter-intuitive, harsh scrubbing does not unclog your pores any better than gentle cleansing, and may actually worsen your acne. Cleansing and scrubbing only reduce surface oils and dead skin cells. Many people use harsh products, laden with alcohol and foamy surfactants (detergents) somehow wash the acne off their skin. However, these actions often produce irritation and worsen acne. It is possible to gently unplug pores with fine polyethylene beads that gently relieve impacted pores without irritation.
Proactiv Solution does not contain any surfactants that can harsh the skin.
Proactiv® Renewing Cleanser is formulated without the harsh detergents, known as surfactants, found in many other cleansers. Surfactants, which are responsible for a sudsy foam and lather, strip skin of its essential oils. As a result, the skin’s barrier becomes damaged and vulnerable to irritation and infection.
Proactiv Solution vs Salicylic Acid
Salicylic acid in a cleanser breaks through the plug but does not kill the P. acnes bacteria, the bacteria that cause acne breakouts.
Acne is caused by a variety of factors that take place below the surface of the skin. That’s why it’s best to gently wash with a medicated cleanser with proven ingredients, like benzoyl peroxide, or sulfur, that can penetrate the skin to help unclog pores, kill bacteria and/or reduce inflammation.
Proactiv Solution vs Oral Drugs
When acne is severe, dermatologists sometimes prescribe oral drugs like isotretinoin or hormonal pills. There are studies that support that these methods are extremely effective for severe cases, but because of the nature of these drugs there are side effects that make it questionable if the benefits truly outweigh the cost. For example, there were reports in 2010 linking suicidal tendencies and psychotic behaviors among acne patients on isotretinoin. Hormonal pills, which are mainly indicated as a contraceptive sometimes causes water retention, weight gain, mood swings, and in the long run, even breast cancer.
Now you know the entire side effects, are you ready to switch?
