Description

Clear, treat and prevent even the worst breakouts with PanOxyl 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Maximum Strength Acne Foaming Wash. This cleanser for acne-prone skin can be used on both the face and body. PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash contains the highest concentration of benzoyl peroxide available without a prescription. This powerful daily cleanser starts working quickly to clear inflammatory acne and kills over 99% of acne-causing bacteria in 15 seconds.* Acne treatments can be harsh and drying to skin, so PanOxyl’s benzoyl peroxide washes contain moisturizers to combat dryness. 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. PanOxyl Reveal your best-looking skin with PanOxyl Acne Solutions. *Independent laboratory study, data on file.

Q: Does this work with pimples ? I have so many pimples everywhere and can I use my cetaphil with this product. If not , what are my risk meaning does my acne get worse ?

submitted by Mi - 1 year 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.

submitted by Miranda - 1 year ago
  • A: We don’t recommend using our 10% wash on sensitive skin because of the Benzoyl peroxide that we use in our acne washes. Using a wash that has Benzoyl peroxide may cause skin irritation. We recommend you contact your healthcare provider or dermatologist for any questions regarding the appropriate treatment.

This face wash works very well for bacteria causing acne. If you have sensitive or dry skin I would not recommend because I have oily skin and it did dry me out a little bit. I combated this by using a more moisturizing facial moisturizer. I took a star off because by the 2nd month of using the product the packing split open and I lost almost half of the product.

It’s gentle on my skin and it’s a good maintenance cleanser. Especially since I suffered from acne years ago. This has also helped my daughter immensely with her acne. I tried proactive for my daughter and not trying to knock proactive but PanOxyl worked so much better to clear up her acne and was more gentle for her skin without over drying or irritation.

I get frequent body acne, pimples, boils even around my butt cheeks & thighs. Also in my armpits. This is the only stuff that keeps it at bay. Be very careful with this wash because it is STRONG. I haven’t tried it on my face and I don’t think I will . Love this for a acne body wash. It doesn’t sud up well. I put it on my hands rub it together with a little water and let it sit on my body for 2-3 minutes then rinse.

I have been having some pretty bad breakouts recently with acne and was really looking forward to trying out this product to help clear it up. However, I only used the product twice as directed and my skin reacted terribly to it. My face feels all bumpy and dry now and it is super red. Almost looks like I have rosacea now. It also has had a continuous burning feeling. I’ve stopped using it now for two days and my skin hasn’t gotten any better. I’m hoping over time it will. But unfortunately I won’t dare to use this product again. I’m sure it can work good to clear up acne but not worth it to have my face react like this. I would attach photos but I’m so insecure about how I look now, I don’t want pictures of my face like this online :(

Let the facial wash stay on the face a min or two if you have acne. So far, it did help control a blemish that appeared. Need a good moisturizer after, it’s not a hydration cleanser so it can make skin feel like it needs moisturizer. But after a healthy dose of moisturizer it’s fine

I don’t have acne but my skin texture isn’t smooth and I wanted to reduce the appearance of pores around my nose. After the first use, my face felt really clean. The smell is a little strong but nothing horrible. I do think it caused a minor break out around my chin though. I think this caused the break out because I also used it on my lower back (clear of any acne or bumps) while in the shower and poured too much. I also had a break out there. My skin probably just needs time to adjust. My biggest dislike is that it will bleach your towels, even after rinsing your face thoroughly.

My old routine had been salicylic acid cleanser, sunscreen, light moisturizer, and niacinamide cream at night. I had a few large pimples on my forehead and around my nose that refused to disappear despite months of this routine. Following a YouTuber's recommendation (she said to add benzoyl peroxide to your routine if you have large, painful pimples), I picked up some Panoxyl. Wow! My acne cleared in literally two days. I'm still continuing the rest of my routine because I find the salicylic acid cleanser is a lot less drying than Panoxyl in the mornings. Plus salicylic acid can help reduce oxidative stress caused by sun damage during the day, and it increases cell turnover rate. Overall, Panoxyl has been a bit drying, and I'm noticing signs of over-exfoliation on my cheeks already. I will cleanse every other day with Panoxyl and use a heavy moisturizing cream afterward to keep my skin hydrated. So far I'm loving the product though, and I like that it has no fragrances, which tend to irritate my skin.
