PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash contains the highest concentration of benzoyl peroxide available without a prescription.

Complicated skincare routines? No thanks. PanOxyl Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Foaming Wash clears and treats existing breakouts and helps prevent new zits from forming in one step. Acne is caused by three things clogging pores: dead skin cells, excess oils and acne-causing bacteria. This powerful, anti-bacterial cleansing wash breaks the acne cycle by unclogging pores and killing acne-causing bacteria. When used daily, this wash helps to prevent new pimples from forming. PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash can be used to treat acne on the face, chest and back. Use in the shower or at the sink, in the morning to get ready for the day or at night before bed. To use, wet the area to be cleansed. Apply acne wash and gently massage the area for 1-2 minutes. Use at the sink or in the shower and rinse thoroughly after application for best results. Pat dry. PanOxyl 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Foaming Wash is pH balanced, paraben free, phthalate free, and contains no added fragrances. It works great for acne-prone and oily skin. Dermatologists recommend PanOxyl benzoyl peroxide acne washes because of their proven results over the last 45 years. To help maintain a clear complexion and help eliminate active blemishes, pair with PanOxyl PM Overnight Spot Patches. Always wear sunscreen when using a benzoyl peroxide acne treatment. For oily skin, apply PanOxyl AM Oil Control Moisturizer for gentle, hydrating mineral sunscreen that mattifies.

submitted by Mi - 3 years ago
  • A: PanOxyl acne washes contain benzoyl peroxide, which works to kill acne causing bacteria and helps prevent future breakouts from forming. Our washes can be used to treat acne on the face, chest and back. We offer acne washes containing benzoyl peroxide in 4% and 10% concentration levels so you can customize your routine based on your skin’s needs. Avoid contact with the eyes, lips and mouth. Skin irritation and dryness is more likely to occur if you use another topical medication at the same time. If irritation occurs, only use one topical acne medication at a time. If you have any concerns about a potential reaction, we recommend you consult your healthcare provider.

My child has had stubborn acne throughout the teen years, and even now at age 20 it remains an issue. Have purchased many products, including ProActive, over the years to no avail. I bought Panoxyl about a year ago, but it went unused until recently (probably lost faith in my proposed solutions after many fails). Two days ago, I suddenly noticed a dramatic improvement in the kid’s skin and asked about the current regimen. The answer came with a huge smile: Panoxyl! Safe to say we are both very pleased with the results after one week of usage.

I haven't used PanOxyl since high school. I turned 30 last year and my skin changed. I have been dealing with bad acne, including cystic pimples, as well as neck and back acne. I decided to resort to ole trusty and she has not disappointed! My skin is clear again. I have dry skin and I make sure to keep it hydrated so it doesn't dry it out. Also, make sure you leave it on your skin for at least 2 minutes.

I have been suffering from hyperpigmentation for the last 15 years from regular breakouts. For the first time, I have had a few weeks with little to no breakouts, and I 100% know it was face wash. It’s tough to keep my breakouts at bay. I leave it on my skin for one to two minutes, then wash it off. I’m using it in the morning and night, but I would only use it at night if you're more sensitive. Pro tip: Try the Cosrx Snail Mucin; it removed all my texture. Make sure you buy it from Target not Amazon. 10000/10 recommended from someone who has had consistent breakouts for the past 15 years every single week of her life. I'm turning 30 in July.

This stuff cleared my skin in just a few washes. I absolutely swear by it. Target has a travel size too, so I tried that first. It is drying, as the package warns. So I also use an acne friendly moisturizer and my skin is SO much better.

When I tell you that I’ve tried every acne face wash- I mean every. I never broke out until I was in my 30’s. Assuming it’s hormonal, and the cystic pimples are painful. This is the ONLY thing that cleared them up. For good.

I was looking into this for treating my hormonal acne. The first day or two it worked wonderfully, but unfortunately it broke me out into itchy dry patches a few days later. I have sensitive skin but my initial wash gave me no irritation, so I would not reccomend this to those with sensitive skin. I did see that there is a version with a lower dose of benzoyl peroxide so I may try that because this did clear up my acne in a flash. Overall a good product, but those with senstive skin do not use!
