Does Proactiv® Work?

The brands mentioned in this article are sold by The Proactiv Company LLC.

Think all acne treatments are created equal? Think again! It’s true that there are a myriad of products claiming to get the job done—in the drugstore, at the beauty counter, and online. Many of them leverage the same over-the-counter ingredients. But think about it. If getting rid of acne were as simple as selecting the correct ingredients, the condition would cease to exist.

Proactiv has been around for two decades—and in that time, it’s helped over 20 million people treat their acne, in turn helping them regain their confidence. Here’s how.

Shown To Work 4 Times Faster Than The Leading Topical Prescription*

Did you know that Proactiv’s latest 3-Step-System clears acne four times faster than the leading topical prescription?

Kills Acne-Causing Bacteria With Benzoyl Peroxide

Considering benzoyl peroxide is proven to kill the bacteria that causes acne (P. Acnes), it would be easy to assume that all acne treatment products contain the ingredient … right? Well, not all of them do, and here’s one guess as to why: when used without an effective delivery system, benzoyl peroxide has a hard time getting down into the pores, where it has the opportunity to perform its job. And when benzoyl peroxide sits atop the skin’s surface, it’s not only less effective at killing acne-causing bacteria, but also more likely to cause redness, irritation and flakes. (More skin issues—the last thing someone struggling with acne wants to deal with!) Because Proactiv+ utilizes something called SmartTarget™ technology—a delivery system with microencapsulated benzoyl peroxide that helps “steer” the ingredient into the pores—it can kill acne-causing bacteria without ravaging your skin. And by killing acne-causing bacteria, it’s not just helping with existing breakouts. It’s working to help prevent new ones, too.

Clears Clogged Pores With Salicylic Acid

In addition to benzoyl peroxide, Proactiv utilizes salicylic acid, an ingredient that helps to keep pores clear and prevent future breakouts. Can you find salicylic acid in other products? Of course—many of them! But no other system pairs pore-clearing salicylic acid with prescription-grade benzoyl peroxide and patented SmartTarget™ technology.

*Study participants suffering from mild to moderate acne using the most commonly prescribed generic acne treatment gel (as of April, 2014) took 4 weeks to achieve approximately the same reduction in total lesion count as achieved by study participants after just 1 week’s use of PA+. After 12 weeks use, total lesion count reduction data between the same 2 groups showed that PA+ was still twice as fast.
