Why you need Clinical Formula BP Pumice Cleanser to clear acne!
The Clinical Formula BP Pumice Cleanser is an excellent acne/blemish cleanser for the face, neck, and back. It contains 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide which is a proven antibacterial active. Benzoyl peroxide is great for killing bacteria.
Benzoyl Peroxide and its components
Benzoyl peroxide is the world’s most frequently purchased antiseptic for the skin. A chemical product, it foams and fizzes and kills acne bacteria in two different ways. One of the components of benzoyl peroxide is hydrogen peroxide. It releases oxygen, which slows down or even kills acne bacteria.
The other component of benzoyl peroxide is a substance called benzoic acid. This acid makes it impossible for acne bacteria to use glucose as their cellular fuel. Even if they survive, they have to go into a dormant state.
Be careful of products with a high percentage of BP
Benzoyl Peroxide, although great at killing bacteria that causes breakouts, can often dry out your skin and will not get rid of or reduce the redness caused by inflammation. The 2.5% BP in the Clinical Formula BP Pumice Cleanser is the perfect amount to treat light to moderate acne and prevent future breakouts. Too much BP can severely dry out skin and cause inflammation. Typically a higher percentage of BP is used for severe acne.
An added benefit of exfoliation
The Clinical Formula BP Pumice Cleanser has an added ingredient that exfoliates the skin. This is important because often oil collects with dead skin cells that can lead to breakouts and blackheads. Exfoliating the skin will remove surface contaminants that lead to dull, dry skin. It's also a great way to bring blemishes to the surface so they may be treated.
Noncomedogenic and hypoallergenic
There is nothing in the BP Pumice Cleanser that will further cause breakouts. Results can be seen, in some cases almost immediately and in other cases over time depending on the severity of your complexion. Some acne products simply have components that could make your complexion worse because of unnecessary ingredients.
Glycerin (sugar-alcohol compound) is an organic compound composed of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen. It’s water-soluble and non-toxic.
Glycerin is a wonderful skin moisturizer that helps the skin retain water. It's a great cleanser suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Glycerin leaves the skin feeling soft and supple.
