AcneFree Products with Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide Now Available

April 30, 2013

Formulated with Advanced Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide, new AcneFree Clear Skin Products from Valeant Consumer Products are formulated to effectively target acne with less irritation. Three kits are available: The AcneFree 24 Hour Acne Clearing System (AcneFree Oil-Free Purifying Cleanser, AcneFree Renewing Toner, and AcneFree Repair Lotion; SRP: $19.99), AcneFree Sensitive Skin 24 Hour Acne Clearing System (AcneFree Corrective Acne Cleanser, AcneFree Alcohol-Free Acne Toner, and AcneFree Hydrating Acne Repair Lotion + Spot Treatment with Advanced Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide; SRP: $19.99), and AcneFree 24 Hour Severe Acne Clearing System (AcneFree Anti-Acne Cleansing Wash, AcneFree Corrective Toner, AcneFree Maximum Strength Repair Lotion with 10% Advanced Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide, and AcneFree Retinol Complex; SRP: $29.99). The AcneFree Gentle Cleansing Bar and AcneFree 2-in-1 Acne Wipes are also available.

Although benzoyl peroxide is an essential element of topical acne therapy for most patients, clinicians are writing fewer prescriptions for the agent, observes Hilary Baldwin, MD, Associate Professor and Vice Chair of the Department of Dermatology at SUNY Brooklyn. As such, she says she welcomes the opportunity to give patients, “a specific recommendation for a product that is easy to find, with an obvious SKU, and that won't unnecessarily irritate their skin.” The Micro-Benzoyl micronized molecules are 60x smaller than typical BPO particles, leading to less irritation and targeted efficacy because it readily enters the pore, Dr. Baldwin says. The AcneFree products are available at drug stores and mass market retailers nationwide.
